What makes Keystone special to me?
"I am constantly impressed and energized by the fact that Keystone College, and especially our faculty, can so carefully maintain our focus on the best way to educate baccalaureate students in the 21st century without allowing ourselves to become bogged down in politics and other nonsense."
