The Exeter Difference

​The Exeter experience stays with you. Four Exonians share their journeys.

Learning is Different Here

We invented “Harkness.” It’s about sharing ideas and taking charge of your learning. It’s about collaboration and respect, where every voice is heard.

Serving Others is Second Nature

A spirit of empathy and non sibi, or “not for oneself,” infuses everything we do, from 100+ service clubs and projects to individual actions.
