Academic Life

Everything we do at Exeter -- every class, every presentation we schedule for the thrice-weekly Assembly, every book we assign, every piece of music we practice, every sport we play -- is designed to help students discover the real business of their lives, and to prepare them to do it with excellence.

To discover the many possible "hows" of achieving that goal, students need opportunities to explore. With over 450 courses, 66 teams, 100 student organizations, and over 200 faculty members, Exeter offers a range of opportunities that few schools can rival. There's a reason for supporting such depth and variety: students do and try many things during their years at Exeter. They discover the "hows" that let them get on with the real business of learning and living.
