Earlham College’s history is closely connected with in the Great Migration of Quakers from the eastern United States in the early nineteenth century. The College was originally only open to friends, but in 1865 the school saw a gradual change, accepting non-Quaker students, and even hiring non-Quaker staff. In 1859 the school became Earlham College in honor of the eminent English Quaker minister Joseph John Gurney.
Over the years more changes were introduced such as art and music, which was originally forbidden by Quaker beliefs, was included in the curriculum; and intercollegiate athletics were introduced as well. Today, about 11% of Earlham's faculty and 12% of its students identify as Quakers; the student body comprises of approximately 1,200 undergraduate students from all over the US and 80 other countries.

I transferred to Earlham as a sophomore, had to transfer to a large state university midway, and then transferred back to Earlham to finish and graduate. My father (a mechanical engineer) could never understand how an Earlham liberal arts education could get me a job, but it prepared me for a satisfying and successful 35+-year career as an academic, corporate, and major law firm librarian after attending library school at Case Western Reserve University and the University of Houston law school.
Earlham taught me that it was important to make all the big decisions with input from both my head AND my heart... that moral input weighs as heavily as the numerical data do. The world needs more Earlham alums SOOO badly.
Earlham's faculty is passionate about teaching undergraduates. That translates directly into a fantastic learning environment. The liberal arts education I got at Earlham, particularly in how to write well, have been invaluable in my work as a consulting engineer.
