During the summer of 2019, 12 students and two faculty members spent 16 days hiking Hadrian’s Wall — an ancient barrier that marked the northwest border of the Roman Empire and that dates to year 122 in the current era. 

Students completed self-designed projects as part of the experience. Program participants represented majors from across the curriculum including Ancient and Classical Studies, History, Sociology-Anthropology, Politics, English, Environmental Sustainability, Japanese Studies, and Geology.

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