Welcome to the Harlaxton College web-site. Harlaxton College is the British campus of the University of Evansville in Indiana, USA, and we are—to state it simply and directly—one of the finest study-abroad campuses anywhere in the world.
We also become, chiefly in the summer, a marvellous venue for conferences, summer schools, short courses, and even for weddings and special events.
Students and faculty come to us from all across America—this web-site can show you how—and together we form a special kind of learning community, right here in our astonishing 153-room manor house in “real England.”
As you go through these web pages you will learn more about us, our courses (especially our unique British Studies course, the core of our academic work), our truly outstanding British and American faculty, the amazing English manor house that is our home (among the “100 best” houses in Britain, according to Simon Jenkins of the London Times), our facilities, our travel opportunities all across Britain and Europe, our sports and cultural programs, our British families who “adopt” us, our immersion in local cultures—all of these pieces deliberately integrated under our powerful rubric of
Learning: All Together
Could I just say it in personal word: I have been a college professor, academic dean, and college president in America, in a career (paraphrasing Winston Churchill) that has been “now long and not entirely uneventful.” In that whole long career—I tell it to you true—I have never experienced, never shared in, never even seen an educational program more alive or more energizing or more life-changing than is this one at Harlaxton College. And it can be yours.
Make yourself at home on our web site. But, better still, we hope to welcome you to the real thing—Harlaxton College in all her excitement. We’ll leave the light on for you.
