Liberal Arts Colleges Facts

  • Williams College, a liberal arts institution chartered in 1793, is home to a number of "firsts": the first college catalog, published in 1795; the first American college or university to sponsor a scientific expedition, in 1835; the oldest astronomical observatory in the US; and the first students in America to wear caps and gowns at graduation (Williams Class of 1887).


  • While a number of liberal arts colleges are SAT optional, Sarah Lawrence College is the only American liberal arts college that completely disregards SAT scores in its admission process.


  • Fort Lewis College has been offering tuition-free education to Native American students for over 100 years.


  • Even though only 3 percent of American college graduates were educated at a residential liberal arts college, alumni of these colleges accounted for 19% of US presidents.


  • Made up of five small liberal arts institutions from Alaska to the Atlantic, the Eco League is the only college consortium in the United States dedicated to environmentalism in education and action.


  • Colgate University laughs in the face of triskaidekaphobia, or superstitious fear of the number 13. Colgate Day is celebrated every Friday the 13th in honor of these facts: in 1817, 13 men with "13 dollars, 13 prayers, and 13 articles" founded the Baptist Education Society of the State of New York, the basis for what would become Colgate; the university's address is 13 Oak Drive; Colgate's zip code is 13346, in which the first two numbers are the number 13 and the sum of the remaining three totals 13; and even the university's motto has a connection with 13, as there are 13 letters in "Deo ac Veritati," which means "for God and for truth."
