Guidelines for Behavior


Getting Along Together

Living and working alongside peers, students and faculty obligates us to function within a set of policies and procedures established by Earlham and the hosted programs. Earlham policies are articulated in its Principles and Practices. Hopefully you will have an opportunity to experience and deepen your understanding of these principles.

The following guidelines have been developed out of our concern for your safety and for the well-being of the group as a whole. Please read carefully.

  • You are expected to attend class and submit work in a timely manner
  • Students are not permitted to leave campus during the program except with explicit and prior permission of the Director
  • Tobacco use by those under 18, alcohol, and drugs are prohibited on the Earlham campus
  • Respect the working and living space of others
  • Take responsibility for your own actions
  • Be a responsible peer and friend by coming to the assistance of those who are making unwise choices. Talk to an adult in position of program responsibility
  • You are responsible for your own room, its contents, and your personal items; please make sure to keep your money and valuables in a safe place — the program is not responsible for the loss of such items
  • Students are expected to be in the residence hall by 10 p.m.
  • Only Explore-A-College Program participants and staff are permitted in the residence hall
