It’s full of students who are up for adventure, finding new and beloved ways to have fun on campus:

  • Division III athletic contests in 19 sports
  • Humans vs. Zombies, a long-running tradition of humans trying to survive a Zombie invasion (or, as some know it, tag)
  • Dance Alloy dancers showcase their choreographic chops to full houses
  • Hammocks on The Heart in springtime
  • 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
  • PC Skits, an annual tradition of students not taking much of anything seriously
  • The 24-hour Theatre Project, during which teams devise plays overnight
  • Back Campus, hundreds of acres of trails, ponds and fields to explore
  • Christmas Candlelight program with songs and snacks

Students take charge in planning activities that interest them, from hiking and canoe trips to special excursions. 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).
