College isn’t just about what you want to be — it’s about what you want to do.
For a long time, people have probably asked you what you want to be when you’re older. Now that you’re starting to think about college, that question may seem more important than ever — and even harder to answer. At Holy Cross, we’re interested in a different question: What do you want to do?
We believe the best way to find your path and create a life that’s not only successful, but also truly meaningful, is to follow your interests and curiosity. Everywhere on the Holy Cross campus, you’ll find students doing exactly that. From the teammate who spends hours practicing free throws and the classmate who stays late in the lab mastering a formula to the roommate who devotes evenings to theatre rehearsal, Holy Cross students embrace their talents and passions wholeheartedly. Our welcoming community provides the ideal setting for exploring your abilities, and for discovering what makes you feel most alive.

College of the Holy Cross Reviews
When HC says that faculty are there to help, it is not just an empty, overly-stated phrase. As an alum, I still reach out to faculty for advice on the job market and graduate school admissions. Truly thankful that HC has invested so much in recruiting and retaining world-class professors.
