Community with a Difference, Student Life | Earlham College Skip to Content

Student Life

At Earlham, we believe there should be a connection between life inside and out of the classroom. Our approach is rooted in our Principles and Practices, which means we strive to create community, embrace simplicity, act with integrity, seek peace and treat one another with respect.

 

That’s why you will see professors at sporting events and performances and why students serve alongside faculty on many committees. It’s why “town hall” style meetings draw people from all corners of campus. It’s the reason some students list faculty and staff among their closest friends on campus. And it’s why many Earlham employees are still in contact with students who graduated years — or even decades — ago.

Earlham College, an independent, residential college, aspires to provide the highest-quality undergraduate education in the liberal arts, including the sciences, shaped by the distinctive perspectives of the Religious Society of Friends (Quakers).
