Earlham attracts an incredibly diverse group of students and professors, and classes are challenging but manageable. We have tons of great traditions, like Beerster (beers are hidden all over campus around Easter time) and Whiskey Tue.

It's still the only school that I would consider attending due to the small size, the academic standards, the course options, the student population, and the professor credentials.

In terms of academics, Earlham is very rigorous and has a lot of inspirational professors who are willing to help. In terms of community, Earlham is very friendly and internationally diverse. In terms of financial assistance, Earlham tends to be very generous and supportive.
