We seek to develop students’ sense of themselves and their overall welfare through mindfulness and reflection.

SOCIAL AWARENESS

We endeavor to support students social awareness through sustained dialogue on the values and beliefs that reflect our commonalities and differences.

SUSTAINABILITY

We work to protect our natural environment by using sustainable practices and learning about how to care for our earth responsibly.

Hereford is more than just a place to sleep.

We have the largest outdoor space of any residential college on Grounds, located on Observatory Hill with stunning views of the Blue Ridge Mountains.

HEREFORD TRADITIONS

Hereford offers exciting and innovative programming throughout the year, including annual traditions and recurring events.

Some examples include:

MOVIE ON THE HILL

Each fall, the Hereford community votes on a movie to screen on the Hereford Lawn and enjoy with the broader community. Sweet Treats food truck often makes a special appearance!

BLOOMFIELD CUP

Bloomfield Cup is our annual flag football tournament held each spring. For those less inclined to hit the field, the day is also filled with other fun activities including a BBQ.

COOKIE NIGHT

Every Thursday evening, the Hereford Student Senate provides a study break with warm, assorted cookies in the Hereford Hub!

Hereford Combines the Best of Living & Learning

We offer dynamic programs and opportunities – comprised of approximately 200 first through fourth year students – that aren’t offered in traditional classrooms or dorms.
