Prospective Students

We would love to have you in our community! 

Why Hereford?

Becoming part of the Hereford community is one of the best ways to interact with faculty, participate in student self-governance, and take advantage of non-traditional learning opportunities. Led by the Hereford Student Senate, the college is student focused meaning programs, activities, and events are directed at the wants of the student-body.  Plus, Hereford's one-of-a-kind location on Observatory Hill is hard to beat--where else on Grounds can you find hiking trails, hammocks, and a garden plus the convenience of a 10 minute bus ride to Central Grounds? The host of programs, events, field trips, special guest lectures, banquets, and movie nights, are all perks, but most of all, Hereford is a Home!
