Richmond has been named the No. 1 Small City in Indiana (Cities Journal) and has a rich heritage of music, culture and architecture. We also have access to bigger cities — Indianapolis, Cincinnati and Dayton are just an hour away.

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).
