At Holy Cross, asking questions is a way of life. When faced with a challenge, we lead with our curiosity and set bold expectations for ourselves. We don’t just want to find the answers — we want to achieve meaningful understanding, and to open ourselves to new questions along the way.
In an age of instant gratification, many people are satisfied with the easy answer. Not so at Holy Cross. We want to dig deeper and gain a true understanding of challenging subject matter — whether it’s literary theory, biochemistry or macroeconomics. Our students pursue innovative research projects and honors-level courses with drive and focus, constantly striving to achieve at the highest level.
Through the liberal arts tradition, we know that interdisciplinary and in-depth exploration is required to solve complex problems. By pushing ourselves to analyze and probe these problems, we expand the limits of what is known — growing as scholars and as people along the way.
