International students bring diversity and vibrancy to the Holy Cross community.
From academics and athletics to opportunities for spiritual development, the Holy Cross undergraduate experience is among the best in the nation—preparing students for fulfilling leadership roles in every aspect of life.
It takes courage to choose hope in this world. To remain uplifted, eyes forward, driven toward the ideal of a brighter tomorrow—and our place in it.
At Holy Cross, we overcome. We challenge the status quo. We approach the world with intention and a dedication to serve. We’re voracious learners. Steadfast activists. Passionate seekers of a better way.
And if there isn’t one? We’ll create it. By leaning into creativity, embracing flexibility and believing wholeheartedly.
With hope, the whole way through.
Experience more than your college years—start your journey to self-discovery
Through volunteer work, lively academic discourse, and a thriving social scene, you'll be challenged and supported by lifelong friends, learning and growing side by side.
Life on campus
Enjoy a meal with friends at one of the healthiest dining halls in the country according to Bon Appétit magazine. Join SPUD, our largest student organization of more than 40 diverse community service partnerships. Catch one of the regular a cappella performances at the campus coffee shop. However, you spend your time at Holy Cross, you’ll find friends and fulfillment.
Our academic programs are both rigorous and varied. Research opportunities are plentiful and available to students both during the academic year and the summer. At the intersection of liberal arts and our Jesuit tradition, you’ll have every opportunity to explore your interests and dive deep in your chosen path.
Cheer and compete
Looking to compete in sports at a high level? With 27 NCAA Division I athletic teams, it’s no wonder our campus is filled with Crusader spirit. And if you’re a casual athlete, you can join a club or intramural team. If you’re a fan, there’s always something to cheer for.
Life at Holy Cross means opportunities; opportunities to participate in dialogues, identify and pursue your passions, and engage in meaningful community service. Guided by our Jesuit motto “men and women for and with others,” we’re determined to leave an impact on those around us.
