Campus Life

You’ll Love Being Surrounded by Nature

You’ll become part of a close-knit community. Walk, bike, or ride the shuttle around campus. Stroll through the Hood Museum of Art. Harvest veggies from our organic farm. You’re always near friends and faculty.

In a peaceful New England setting routinely ranked as one of the nation’s most beautiful campuses, we live where we learn. From the first moment you step foot on our tree-lined Green, you’ll develop close, enduring connections through intellectual discovery, the arts, community service, athletics, and more.

From helping to maintain the Appalachian Trail, which runs through campus, to serving dinners to people experiencing homelessness, you’ll find ways to transform lives. Including your own.
