Why Holy Cross?
At Holy Cross, we believe the best way to create a truly purposeful life is to uncover your passion through hope and curiosity. Our welcoming community provides the ideal setting for exploring your abilities, and for discovering what makes you feel most alive.
1. At Holy Cross, we discover purpose through research and internships.
Working closely with expert faculty members, Holy Cross students pursue research that connects coursework with hands-on experiences in the laboratory and in the field. In addition, Holy Cross students receive career mentoring and support, as well a number of opportunities to acquire invaluable career-related experience through internships.
2. At Holy Cross, we lead change through our commitment to service and sustainability.
Guided by the Jesuit motto “people for and with others,” Holy Cross students are united in their commitment to make the world a better, more compassionate place. Student Programs for Urban Development (SPUD) is the largest student group on campus with more than 700 members. In addition, at Holy Cross, sustainability isn’t a buzzword - it’s our collective responsibility and a reflection of our commitment to our Jesuit mission.
3. At Holy Cross, we choose hope.
We believe that it takes courage to choose hope. To find a better way. To challenge expectations. At Holy Cross, we lead with optimism over cynicism. We reject the status quo, and find a better way instead. We choose hope, and empower each other to go further. In a diverse community connected by optimism and hope, you’ll find that we empower one another to do better.
