MC Quick Fact

In 2011, 6 percent of Maryville College seniors graduated with a double major, and 40 percent earned a minor.

Correction: Dave Styles ’63 alerted us to an error in the last Scot-e-News. The first dean of the College was actually Samuel Tyndale Wilson, who held that position from 1891 until 1901, when he became president. Thanks for alerting us, Dave!
