The school now includes six distinct divisions covering arts and sciences, law, business administration, education, and health sciences.
The students include 5000 undergraduates, 1500 post-graduates, and 1500 law students. The University has become a nationally ranked Catholic institution, with an average freshman GPA of 3.89. Businessweek ranked the undergraduate program 4th in the west coast and 36th in the United States.
