Senior spotlight

Thea Clarkberg ’22 has found a unique way to keep The Heart close, no matter where life after Earlham takes her.

“Earlham is home to me. Whenever I’m feeling down, it’s a reminder that there are people who love me and are there for me.”

  • 249 students graduated on May 22, including those from Earlham School of Religion and the Earlham Graduate Programs in Education.
  • Top majors included global management, psychology and biology.
  • Class of 2021 graduates hailed from 26 different countries and 24 different states.
  • 113 studied or did research off campus while at Earlham.
  • 41 did Earlham-funded internships.
  • Two graduates are Watson Fellows.
  • The Class of 2021 included Earlham’s first museum studies major graduate.
  • Two graduates were the first to participate in Earlham’s new partnership with the Lake Erie College of Osteopathic Medicine.


We couldn’t be prouder of everything the Class of 2021 accomplished during their time at Earlham.
