Describe how your school looks to someone who's never seen it.

Earlham is a wonderful place where lots of really interesting, intelligent, intentional, and fun people get to live together and work hard and play hard (or not) for four (or more) years under the tutelage of a very caring and inspring faculty and staff.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

Go with your instincts- sometimes there's something that you want, or feel that you don't know about yet, but you'll just have a feeling, a sense- an nudge of intuition- trust it!!

What's the most frustrating thing about your school?

It has really great set of values that it claims to hold, but in actually putting them to practice, of course it comes short. This is most obvious and annoying in respect to creating a green campus.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

A college choice is to be made by the student and not one's parents. The student must be intuitive and willing to take risks in the game of college selection. If the student has the ability to sit down, pour herself onto an application as well as an interview and have no feelings of regrets, she will have succeeded in taking crucial steps in terms of both growth and independence. This clearly is not the end and therefore one must step out of the high school comfort zone of lectures and homework, and into the world of self-exploration, self-motivation, and proactivity.

What kind of person should attend this school?

Someone who is determined to blaze their own trail. One can not be told by others what to think and feel. Instead, an Earlham student accumulates information and decides for herself what is right and wrong.

What kind of person should not attend this school?

Someone who expects to be told what to think. Earlham is not for those that are looking for an easy degree. Those that are not willing to push themselves will have a difficult time fitting in.

Here's your chance: Say anything about your college!

First, it is a quaker college andsupports quaker philosophies. It also has a wide range of students on campus, including a comparatively high percent of international students. It was also in a different region than where I grew up, and it has a high percentage of students studying abroad (I just completed an abroad program).

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

It really seems to be up to the individual as to how much they get out of any school. Some schools are easier to get involved in on- or off-campus activities, but overall it is up to the individual. It is useful to look for any specific programs that you want, and if you are unsure as to what kind of career you want, or even what to study period, I strongly suggest a liberal arts college.

What do you consider the worst thing about your school? Why?

The school does have some cliques, but not any worse than other colleges. It can make it difficult to have friends in different social groups (not impossible, but just slightly more difficult).

Describe the students at your school.

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.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

There are a lot of people that tal abou how crazy and wild they were back in college, but at the end of the day, you are there to learn. A great course catalogue with amazing professors that can teach you what you are interested in is far more important to you than any frat, club, or team.

What do you consider the worst thing about your school? Why?

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

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

Students- Wherever you end up, you have the ability to make or break your experience. Those that are the happiest are the ones that find the positives out of any situation. My parent's choose my school for me, and I resented it. Yet, if I had to do it all over again, I wouldn't change a thing. I found my passion and my future. I loved my undergraduate experience because I made it what I wanted and did the things I loved- intensive learning, athletics, photography, and study abroad. Things don't always work out the way you want, but if you can find what makes you happy and embrace it- it won't matter. I walked away from my undergrad getting everything I ever wanted and then some- I challenge you to do the same.

What do you consider the worst thing about your school? Why?

Location. Richmond, IN isn't exactly the biggest city with the most stuff to do.

What kind of person should attend this school?

Motivated people that want a learning environment. If you want to slack or want to party, this IS NOT the school for you.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

Visit the school and stay the night if you can. As well as meet people there and ask as many questions as you can. Look at your future and see if you can see yourself there and happy!

What's the one thing you wish someone had told you about freshman year?

How intense being a Chemisry major was going to be.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

Visit every school. You won't get a good feel for a school unless you spend the night. Once at school, pursue a major that you are interested in, regardless of job possibilities after school. Do what you are passionate about.

What's unique about your campus?

The people are the best thing about this campus because everyone is really friendly and you can get along with anyone.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

1) Do not let your child have complete control over the choice of where to attend college. High schools seniors are entirely uncapable of making that choice, especially given the financial aspect in respect to our current economic crisis. 2) Make sure to send your child to a campus close to home. Your average college campus is a vial corrupting place. Maintain close supervision of your child is the only to make sure your child gets anything whatsoever out of college, unless you are looking to be grandparents anytime soon. 3) Accept the fact that your child will never be the same. 4) Finally, be sure that you get your child hitched to that nice little neighbor girl, if not your son your son will end up in the arms of some sad drunk girl.

What's the one thing you wish someone had told you about freshman year?

That this college would not prepare me for a job.

What do you consider the worst thing about your school? Why?

I would say the lack of technology. I mean, we have computers but all we do it type of them. It would be nice to use them with class or research projects.
