I recall regrettably few preparatory tools available at that time. The college provided excellent education and maintained a reputation for a challenging and unique curriculum, but it seems to have been geared toward sending students to grad schools rather than careers.

Inward focus on liberal arts. A bubble. No emphasis on the future

History and Archaeology, Class of 2004

Like any school, there were some who did as little as possible academically and there were those who already acted as professionals. Most students highly valued their atmosphere of research and synthesis, taking advantage of the access to highly qualified staff and meaningful extracurriculars.

It was clear the administration spent great sums on keeping up appearances with respect to dorms, classrooms, labs, etc. One building or another was always being renovated or upgraded, despite it being a small campus.

Program houses: a group of students are given block housing or an actual home owned by the college to use in pursuing a specific volunteer project. My program housemates and I worked with the boys at the juvenile delinquent facility outside town.

The school hosted a wide array of activities. Aside from the usual clubs and groups revolving around each major, there were many interdisciplinary lectures, guest speakers, exhibits, etc. that were generally well-attended by the student body. Additionally, the college gave notable encouragement and logistical support in sending students abroad for a semester or two, and many students utilized this opportunity. I remember playing bagpipes in the pipe band, learning to use the atl-atl (neolithic spear thrower) and bow and arrow, attending organ recitals from performing arts majors, and attending a Brian Greene lecture on quantum physics.
