4 College Senior

Off-Campus Dining: You can get what you need.

5 College Senior

Overall Experience: Low recruiting on campus, but you can get yourself a job if you try.

5 College Senior

Health & Safety: Security is available as needed. It is a very safe campus, you can leave personal belongings (wallet, money, keys, laptop) etc in the library for hours unattended and no one will take anything.

5 College Senior

Greek Life: Hillsdale's greek life is like no other. It is absolutely fabulous.

5 College Senior

Scholarships: Hillsdale will work with you, through a variety of options to secure financial aid.

2 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: There is not much around except a few fast-food.

Athletics: I am part of the Charger swim team on campus and love it. The girls on the team exchange so much support for each other both in and out of the pool. The athletic facilities are in good shape and some renovations are ongoing in certain areas. Support for teams and school spirit is also apparent. There will always be students there to cheer on a team as they compete.

Health & Safety: Our campus provides an extremely safe environment. The police are always there to offer their hand, but even at night there is very little to worry about.

Campus Housing: The housing on campus is actually really nice. After visiting some other campuses, I found that the spacious rooms of the McIntyre dorm were rather comfortable. Also, each dorm tends to have a close-knit community.

Nightlife: Hillsdale has a bunch of neat events to go to in the evenings. Especially with the Improv Club held on Friday nights last year, the Zumba classes, late night movies and other events.

Computers: The campus computer labs are great--there are several both for macs and pcs. One of my favourite things is that you can check laptops out of the student union front desk, so if you're not going to need the computer for a lot, that's a great option! I could survive fairly happily without my own computer, but I like the convenience of being able to take my computer wherever I want.

4 College Freshman

Diversity: I've been somewhat surprised by the diversity on campus--Hillsdale puts forward a very unified front, and while a large percentage of the student body is conservative, there are a fair number of liberals, and the religions differ widely. Most of the campus agrees on just enough issues to show how different our beliefs really are.

4 College Freshman

Nightlife: I don't party, so my definition of nightlife may be wonky, but I personally love the ability to walk into the student union late at night, run into a group of friends, and have a great time talking, playing cards, and eating ice cream.

Transportation: I personally haven't ever had to use campus transportation, but those of my friends who have have been quite content with it.

4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: I have personally never had any safety concerns. It's generally a good idea not to walk back to your dorm late at night by yourself, but security is really great, and will be happy to give you a ride if you call them! Campus itself is extremely safe, but definitely use caution if going into town late at night--don't walk by yourself.

Campus Strictness: I really appreciate the dorm visitation hours. Although they can sometimes be irritating if you're in the middle of a conversation, it's really nice to know what times the dorm will only have girls (or boys, if you're a guy) in it. My only real complaint is that there are no visitation hours *at all* during finals week--but that is completely worth the benefits.

Off-Campus Dining: I highly recommend the Hunt Club. It's really close to campus--not more than twenty minute walk--and the food is not only really good, it's fairly inexpensive, and the atmosphere is extremely welcoming and friendly. It is not a fast food restaurant, so make sure you have time to wait, but it's worth every minute.

3 College Sophomore

Parking: A car is not needed for getting around campus, nor for going to some restaurants close by, but getting to the downtown or shopping requires a car.

Academics: Hillsdale College is #1 academically. Just look at 2013's Princeton review. We do hard work here, but the professors really care and are willing and able to help any student who has questions.

Weather: I haven't experienced anything terrible yet, but winter can get pretty rough.

2 College Freshman

Campus Dining: It's really just not great. The food is plain and repetitive. Everyone is forced to get a food plan which is pretty expensive and not great value. It's best to get a block plan so you can use Charger Change at AJ's which has good caffeine drinks and pretty yummy food.

4 College Freshman

Drug Safety: If you're going to party in college, Hillsdale is the place to go for safety. I never feel any danger of crazy things happening, nobody ever, ever drives drunk, and no heavy drugs are present on campus.

Facilities: The Library (especially the Heritage room), the student union, and the Biermann center are incredible facilities that are beautiful to look at and high quality. The Arboretum is also gorgeous and a great place to hang out and relax.

Facilities: Hillsdale College is focused on well-roundedness, truth, liberty, and integrity. It is like no other school that I have ever seen or visited.
