Visit and explore Earlham School of Religion

Earlham School of Religion sits on the Earlham College campus. As an ESR student, you’ll attend classes, study and explore on this 800-acre campus nestled in the middle of a small and welcoming Midwestern city.

At ESR, we believe that living and learning in community allow us to arrive at deeper understandings of ourselves, our callings and the wider world. Get to know what makes ESR’s community so special by visiting our campus yourself, attending one of our virtual events or by meeting with current community members.

Plan your visit to ESR

We invite students considering us for their graduate education to visit and experience the ESR community by attending an open house or arranging a dedicated visit. If you are interested in an in-depth introduction to ESR, we will arrange:

  • Up to two nights lodging, at no expense to you.
  • An itinerary, developed by student Admission Hospitality Associates (AHAs), that will introduce you to the campus, classrooms, community and Richmond area.

Our open house events for prospective students and family members happen in conjunction with ESR conferences like our Spirituality Gathering and Writer’s Colloquium. These are excellent opportunities to personally engage with students, faculty and staff, and ESR community members.
