I am currently an on-campus, first-year student at Earlham College, so clearly, it is a, for lack of better words, bizarre time to begin a college experience. Your first year of college is something filled with so much uncertainty as is; uncertainty in regards to social life, academics, meal-plans, dorm rooms- just about everything that falls into the “college experience” is foreign. All of this is exacerbated amidst a global pandemic, yet what is remarkable about Earlham is that somehow, I still feel like I am integrated into the school’s community.
There is something uniquely embracing about Earlham; this is one of the primary reasons I chose to attend this school. When I first toured here, before the pandemic, I was struck by how students, faculty, classes, and social life, among other things, are all interwoven to create a truly enriching environment. At Earlham, there exists a school culture in which academics, socialization, exploration, independence, collaboration, challenge, and comfort allow for growth and a thriving community.
Once I realized that I would be entering Earlham college with COVID-19 still very much a relevant issue, I feared that it would not be feasible for such a community to continue, let alone for me to acclimate to it. Thankfully, and seemingly miraculously, this has not been the case. Although there are undoubtedly limitations imposed by the pandemic, the school has managed to continue fostering a sense of community while also managing to operate in a manner that prioritizes the said community’s safety.
All of this goes to say that already within just one semester of being a student here, Earlham has earned a very special place in my heart. It has provided me with a vibrant community in a time that feels unprecedentedly isolating; something which holds inexpressible value. My educational and social experiences here are intertwined so that I am able to learn, challenge myself, grow, and thrive. Amidst the chaos associated with college-life and life in general, Earlham has provided me, and all of its students, with a warm and embracing home- something that all colleges should strive to achieve.
It tough to set in stone my overall opinion. My favorite aspect of the school is the size; you are bound to find a familiar face anywhere you go. My dislike would be the political tension. They very much promote just one side of the story and neglect the other. It'd say its my only concern because it has caused a sense of unsafely among the community.
Earlham College is a nice, picturesque college. It is very small and generally the people are all really understanding. There is a real sense of community that is supportive and will really speak out if the students feel as if something is wrong and needs to be fixed immediately. The education at Earlham tries to incorporate learning in and out of the classroom.
I love this college so much!! However, this school does have its weaknesses and it's not a school for everyone. This is not a place for people big on sports or those who wish to experience Greek life. That being said, I don't believe that you'd find a more welcoming, diverse, and warm environment. There's definitely room for improvement, but the students have such an active role in doing things, and that continually inspires me to do better myself.

The important thing is not to think about what you want to do with your life, but what you want to learn next.
The school prides itself on high morals and Quaker ideals, but the reality of the situation is not the golden standard that the school would like to portray. This leads to somewhat of a disconnect between the students and adnimistration and board of trustees. It is very easy to get over this after a year, but some people are challanged by this
Friendly atmosphere and engaging community
My classmates are an eclectic and ecentric grup of people spanning a variety of interests and activities, but all share the same desire for knowledge.
There is nothing I wish I had known that I did not know already. Even if I had had questions, even those considering Earlham are encouraged to visit and talk to professors and other workers.
Anyone willing to really learn, wants diversity and wants to be around liberal open-minded people.
sorority, fraternity oriented (none on campus).
Quakers, biology, Japanese studies.
The school has one of the largest international student population, 20% of my graduating class. This in combination with large Jewish, African American, and Quaker populations, due to its historic connection with the black civil rights movement and being a Quaker school. The high diversity allows for greater discussions in class and broad opinions.
The relationship between staff and students. Earlham being a Quaker-founded school, we call everyone by their first name--even the president! So right away many hierarchical barriers are taken down. You truly become friends with the staff--I even kept in contact with the ladies I work with at the registrar's office over the summer!
No transportation to assist students around the town or on campus.
Some of the students are hippies.
We are all dirty hippies...
The best thing about Earlham would be the community and the people who choose to go there. You are not pressured to do something that you don´t want to do.
