  • Dance Alloy dancers showcase their choreographic chops to full houses
  • 50 active clubs and organizations, including club sports
  • Themed housing based on shared interests (no frats or sororities at Earlham)
  • A student-run coffee shop with the best dirty chai latte around
  • The 24-hour Theatre Project, during which teams devise plays overnight
  • Back Campus, hundreds of acres of trails, ponds and fields to explore

By the way, students also serve on committees that advise on the college budget, review hiring and promotion of faculty, and shape student life policies!

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).
