Valued members of the Jewell family


You have seen Jewell Hall hundreds of times. It's our oldest campus building, sitting majestically on the highest hill in Clay County. The iconic three pillars have been the face of our College since 1858 and, now, they've inspired the three pillars that support our philosophy: Critical Thinking, Community, and Meaningful Lives. Although we don't see you every day, you are an important part of Jewell's community of thinkers and doers, and the foundation of Jewell's successful legacy. With more than 13,000 alumni working to make a difference in their corner of the world, Jewell is more relevant that ever, cultivating generations of people who seek to pursue a broader, deeper understanding and apply it to a life of meaning.
