Abstract

The smaller, more intimate environment of liberal arts colleges shapes the experiences of the faculty as well as the students. As faculty members at three substantially different liberal arts colleges in different regions of the country, we would like to share our experiences with the broader mathematical community. This article is a brief overview of the opportunities, rewards, and challenges of working at a liberal arts college.
