Earlham College is making a bold statement about its commitment to the arts as the 2014-15 academic year begins.
The College opened the doors to the $22 million Center for Visual and Performing Arts, a 47,200-square-foot complex that is home to the Music, Theatre Arts and Art departments.
According to Forbes' rankings, Earlham College ranks No. 92 among 650 private and public colleges and universities, up 54 spots from last year. Earlham joins the University of Notre Dame and DePauw University as Indiana’s only three institutions in the top 100.
Earlham's new Indiana Pathways program, supported by a grant from Lilly Endowment, Inc., offers competitive, high-impact paid internships to 30 Earlham students. This program increases the large number of internships the College already supports.

The Master of Arts in Teaching program recently organized and carried out the ECLA, the Earlham College Leadership Academy, for local middle school students. The successful graduate program (with a current job placement rate of 93%) attracts many recent Earlham alumni. This may be one reason why education is the most popular career field for Earlhamites.
