In addition, the College offers teacher preparation for the middle school and secondary school levels here each student experiences two practice teaching terms: one in an urban setting and the other in a suburban setting. The College has strongly embraced the electronic advances currently available and is completely wired with computers and LCDs for instructional use in every classroom. The residence halls as well as the academic buildings are wireless and provide Internet capabilities to all students.
