3 College Junior

Greek Life: Lots of drama, mostly parties, some community service, not nationally affiliated

4 College Junior

Majors: Just have to apply to the teacher ed program which isnt difficult at all

3 College Junior

Majors: High stress especially if you also have a job. Work load is super high with a lot of busy work but you work together with your peers and learn a lot of important skills

3 College Junior

Local Atmosphere: Small town so theres not much around

College Junior

Off-Campus Housing: Havent lived off campus yet

4 College Junior

Scholarships: Pretty easy to get your financial aid but you do have to follow up in subsequent years

4 College Junior

Academics: The education program is really great. From day one they get you involved in classrooms and working with kids

4 College Junior

Academics: All professors are great. They really care about students and go out of their way to help you

4 College Junior

Campus Housing: The dorms are mediocre but the upperclassmen apartments are fantastic. Spacious and brand new. Maintenance requests are met quickly and efficiently.

2 College Junior

Campus Dining: There isn't a whole lot of variety or good options. There have been major improvements in the last year and since I live in an apartment I dont use the dining hall often so I'm not sure of its current state but I'd still call it very "nebraskan" and "cafeteria"

4 College Junior

Athletics: Teams are great and games have great energy and are fun

3 College Junior

Nightlife: Not really much going on most of the time.

4 College Junior

Campus Housing: It's simple and easy. Very friendly.

3 College Junior

Greek Life: Greek life has really been moving up and becoming more accepting and holding higher standards.

3 College Junior

Off-Campus Dining: There are many fast food places, but none very healthy and at a cost. Few sports restaurants, but all pretty much offering the same.

2 College Junior

Off-Campus Housing: We don't have many options for off campus living. And the school makes you stay until you are a senior unless you have a loophole to slip through.

3 College Junior

Academics: We have awesome teachers that are mostly willing to help, the science center is awesome, but workload and curriculum is in some ways overbearing and in other ways a little underwelming.

3 College Junior

Academics: We have a personalized program that makes it awesome to have a specific major

4 College Junior

Campus Strictness: This campus is very open to things in a safe way

3 College Junior

Weather: When it's cold, it's cold. and sometimes hard to get places

5 College Junior

Diversity: We have a very open and understanding campus with all walks of life

4 College Junior

Scholarships: They were very helpful and it was not very stressful

3 College Junior

Transportation: We have a train right off campus that only runs late at night, making things difficult.

4 College Junior

Drug Safety: Everyone is very laid back and there is little peer pressure

Students at Hastings College are part of a family that has been growing for more than 125 years, along with the College's strong foundation of education and excellence. Hastings College's motto is "Pursue Your Passion." It's true that HC students are usually high achievers, and there are many things to take advantage of on campus. J-Term, a one-month class session in January, features many week-long (or longer) class trips to places including Australia, Africa, New York, Hawaii, and Puerto Rico. Not many students choose to study abroad, but the option is available. Through connections with past students who've studied abroad and by brainstorming with professors, students can come up with a number of options for international study. Students can also take advantage of a personalized program, which is created with the help of a professor and presented to the Board of Trustees for approval. The possibilities are endless, and not only in academics. Hastings College offers more than 70 student organizations. Students have to try hard not to find something to their liking to get involved in on campus.

The Hastings College family is less sappy sitcom and more comfort and satisfaction, from the relationships between students and teachers to dorm life and beyond. Other words students frequently use to describe Hastings College are "elite," "fun," "small," "proud," "individualized," and "exciting." Even some students who left before graduating still express similar positive thoughts about the College. Not every student is happy at Hastings, but those who put in the time and effort find they can get what they want out of the College if they only try. If you're not pleased with your living situation, the Director of Housing will help you work it out. If you have difficulty in a class, teachers will find you a reliable tutor or help you themselves. The College can't knock on every student's door and ask what they can do to help, but they welcome students who seek out solutions to problems. The Hastings College family is there for students, but students have to make it happen. You may not always be happy with your family, but you're going to love this one in the end for giving you the best educational, social, and life experience that money can buy.
