Review Earlham College
There are absolutely phenomenal things about Earlham: the professors, the music department, study abroad opportunities, etc. There are also many things that are pretty horrendous about Earlham: an intolerant student body (DO NOT come here for a social science unless you think Bernie Sanders was too conservative), unhelpful faculty, run down facilities, housing inequalities, "unique" classroom settings, etc. If you're considering EC, genuinely ask yourself 1) If you're so liberal that you're ok living in an Alt-Left echo chamber 2) If you're ok with doing NOTHING off campus considering the tiny size of EC 3) If you don't mind every social science course being taught as a course on social justice. I am ultimately attempting to transfer, despite the things and people I love. Do not make my mistake and have to leave people you have grown to love in order to be happy. DO YOUR RESEARCH ABOUT EC.
Earlham is an awesome school full of amazing people and some really neat classes. I love the tight community and the close connection with faculty. There are also so many extracurricular activities and academic opportunities . I do wish the school had more political diversity. The school has great financial aid and scholarships too!
I always feel safe on campus, often walking alone late at night without any worries. That being said, sexual assault has been an issue on campus (as on every campus). Administration response has been frustrating, but students have responded incredibly well. Earlham students believe and support survivors of sexual assault. This past semester, a student publicly called out an assaulter in order to draw attention to the issue. AASV (action against sexual violence) is an on-campus student organization that discusses and raises awareness surrounding the issue. Although administration needs to step up its game, the student community is really good about addressing the issue of sexual assault.
