Perspectives is an overnight program for high school seniors who are interested in learning about diversity and multiculturalism at Holy Cross. Students will be introduced to the multiplicity of people, faiths, viewpoints and ideas that exist at Holy Cross and have the opportunity to discuss their views during classes and panel discussions alongside current students and faculty. They will also have a chance to tour our campus, spend the night in one of our residence halls and eat in Kimball Dining Hall. Ultimately, we hope students will gain a deeper understanding of the College’s diverse community and the many opportunities it has to offer.

This year, the Perspectives program will be held from November 9-11, 2013.

The deadline to apply for the Perspectives program has passed.
