A liberal arts college is one with a primary emphasis on undergraduate study in the liberal arts and sciences.
Students in the liberal arts generally major in a particular discipline while receiving exposure to a wide range of academic subjects, including sciences as well as the traditional humanites subjects taught as liberal arts.
A "liberal arts" institution can be defined as a "college or university curriculum aimed at imparting broad general knowledge and developing general intellectual capacities, in contrast to a professional, vocational, or technical curriculum."[1] Although what is known today as the liberal arts college began in Europe[2], the term is commonly associated with the United States. Prominent examples in the US include the so-called Little Three and Little Ivy colleges in New England and the surviving, predominantly female Seven Sisters colleges along the northeastern seaboard, but similar institutions are found all over the country.

Liberal arts colleges are found in countries all over the world as well. Examples of such colleges are Bishop's University in Canada, European College of Liberal Arts in Germany and University College Utrecht in the Netherlands. However, especially in Europe, many topics covered in the general education conveyed at American liberal arts colleges are also addressed in specialized secondary schools. The “liberal arts college experience” is typically American, and attempts to transfer it to other countries have largely failed.
The “liberal arts college experience” in the US is characterized by three main aspects that demarcate it from undergraduate experiences in other countries:

Georgetown is a city in Scott County, Kentucky, United States. The population was 18,080 at the 2000 census. The Kentucky State Data Center estimates Georgetown's population at 21,074 as of July 1, 2007 [1] It is the county seat of Scott County[2]. The original settlement of Lebanon, founded by Rev. Elijah Craig, was renamed in 1790 in honor of President George Washington.[3] It is the home of Georgetown College, a private liberal arts college. Georgetown is part of the Lexington-Fayette, KY Metropolitan Statistical Area.
The city's growth began in the mid-1980s, when Toyota built Toyota Motor Manufacturing Kentucky, the first wholly owned United States plant, in a recently[when?] annexed part of the city. The plant, which currently builds the Camry, Solara, Venza and Avalon automobiles, opened in 1988. It is the largest building in terms of acres covered under one building in the United States, with over 200 acres (0.8 km2) occupied. The city also serves as the home of the annual training camp for the NFL's Cincinnati Bengals.

The order is best known for having had Bernadette Soubirous, also known as Bernadette de Loures, as a member in the motherhouse at Nevers;[6] after having received her visions, Bernadette entered the school in Lourdes run by the sisters,[7] who had opened a hospice in Lourdes in 1834.[8] In 1866, she was accepted to take her novitiate in Nevers, where she died in 1879. Her body is enshrined in the St. Gildard Convent's chapel in Nevers.[7] Today, the Sisters also tend the cachot, the basement apartment in Lourdes where Soubirous lived during her youth;[9] in 2008, the Sisters received Pope Benedict XVI in the cachot, before he visited the grotto in Lourdes.[10]
Another notable Sister was Marcelline Pauper, born 1663, who entered at Nevers at age twenty-two.[11] Her autobiography was published in 1871;[12] in it, she described how she made reparations for a sacrilege that had occurred in the chapel by receiving the stigmata, on 26 April 1702.[11][13]
