The Optimism Advantage of The College of the Holy Cross
"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."
That's the answer The College of the Holy Cross gives to its own question, Why Holy Cross?
"The College of the Holy Cross was founded in 1843 by the Society of Jesus (Jesuits) in Worcester, Massachusetts. Holy Cross is a highly selective, four-year undergraduate liberal arts institution and is ranked among the nation's leading four-year liberal arts colleges."
