Student Life

When students leave their hometown to attend Holy Cross, they quickly find a new home here on campus. Living and learning alongside friends who become like family members, they put their passions into action in multiple dimensions — from spearheading eco-friendly initiatives on campus to taking up ballroom dancing. Our more than 100 student groups and organizations — and the opportunity to create new organizations that reflect students’ emerging interests — ensure that every student can participate in activities that challenge, enrich, instruct, and entertain.

A full campus calendar of events, performances, lectures, workshops, and exhibits allow you to explore new academic, intellectual, and spiritual possibilities, and our Worcester location offers a wide range of opportunities off the Hill — from admiring works by Cezanne at the Worcester Art Museum to dining at one of the city’s distinctive ethnic restaurants.

There are unlimited ways to make your time at Holy Cross worthwhile. The one constant is our passionate community of doers, thinkers, and explorers who will become your classmates and best friends.

Check out some of the unique ways that Holy Cross helps students to engage with — and expand on — their interests.
