College of the Holy Cross takes a place in the national spotlight as "Fraternity" by Diane Brady hits bookstores. A non-fiction account of the extraordinary group of black students who began their studies at the College in 1968, "Fraternity" reveals the vision and determination of former president Rev. John Brooks, S.J., ’49, who recruited and mentored the 20 young men at a time when racial integration was sparking controversy on many campuses. He changed their lives, and the course of history.
Due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, the College is shifting all learning to a remote model for the fall semester, and we will allow only a very limited number of students to live on campus. More information
