Ole Core requirements fulfilled
One course per term
Students in the program take one Enduring Questions course and three other courses during each semester of the first two years of college. These four courses comprise a normal course load. First-year students also take an Enduring Questions course (QUEST 115) in Interim of the first year.Learn more
An intensive residential experience
All “Questers” live in the same residence hall in order to foster bonds outside of the classroom during the first year. Each Quester has a non-Quester roommate, though, so there are lots of opportunities to expand social networks beyond the program.Learn More
