  • Students Explore Amphibian Conservation

    For more than a decade, volunteers from around the country have been documenting frog and toad populations as part of the North American Amphibian Monitoring Program (NAAMP) facilitated by the U.

  • A Geoscience Journey West

    On an overcast morning in the Pacific Northwest, Associate Professors of Geoscience Neil Laird and Tara Curtin led a group of eleven eager students up the craggy side of Mount Rainier. With cloudy skies, rain showers, and steep paths, the climb wasn't exactly what the students had in mind when they applied for the two-week geoscience program months earlier.



Professor Eric Barnes

"A great liberal arts education provides a broad base of knowledge that can be integrated in an interdisciplinary manner and then applied to difficult problems that our world is now facing. At HWS, our innovate, goal-based curriculum and wildly popular study abroad programs provide students with multiplicity of perspectives. Nothing has convinced me more of the success of HWS as a liberal arts institution, than the ability of our students to win international renown and a national championship in competitive debate, where they test their analytical skills about complex policy issues against the top students from the most prestigious universities in the world."

-- Eric Barnes, Associate Professor of Philosophy and HWS Debate Team Coach
