College Freshman

Majors: I have not done an internship

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: The dorms are quite old but also give a nice classic feel. Though some of the dorms aren't ACed, since it is in Baltimore, it's not that bad.

4 College Freshman

Facilities: All the students and faculty are very kind and helpful - the environment of the campus is great. Also the college is located in a beautiful city next to a harbor.

4 Recent Alumnus

Local Atmosphere: I love the area, find food and shopping that suits me. It's safe, though I haven't attended sporting events. I found locals treat the students fantastically

3 Recent Alumnus

Off-Campus Housing: Most off campus housing is 5 miles away, very common, but generally not worth it unless you need it.

4 Recent Alumnus

Campus Dining: Food from Ner Israel dining room is included in tuition, kosher, and fits in with students' schedule

3 Recent Alumnus

Overall Experience: The degree is very prestigious, but the field most of us want to go in is extremely competitive. The program helps us find places, but many opportunities are in far away places

5 Recent Alumnus

Overall Experience: All of the courses and professors I experienced are absolutely the best, caring, fair, and incredible instructors. The courses were great and presented in the best, possible way

5 Recent Alumnus

Campus Housing: My program uses the Ner Israel campus, which is unbelievable

4 Recent Alumnus

Guys & Girls: No one in my program dates until they are ready to get married, though four in my class were married over the past year.

4 Recent Alumnus

Diversity: I love my school-our program contained a group homogenous in religion, though everyone is very accepting and several come from far away places. Economic background wasn't evident

3 Recent Alumnus

Athletics: We do sports on our own

4 Recent Alumnus

Scholarships: Applying for loans was simple, but scholarships were hard to find and win.

5 Recent Alumnus

Majors: My professor placed me in several good local schools, these weren't paid, though, but a class requirement.

Students who love Hopkins and students who hate it both recognize that JHU isn’t the school for everyone. Many students believe that classes at JHU are just as hard as Ivy League schools, but they complain that Hopkins professors grade much harder. Many students wish that Hopkins offered grade inflation, as other top schools do, since even people who work hard sometimes end up with low grades. This influences some students to put studying above any social activity, in the hopes of being one of the few people in a class to receive an “A.” Hopkins offers a variety of social programming, but no one forces students to participate, and there’s no one holding your hand and leading you to fun activities. Even though students complain, most say that they’ve enjoyed being challenged by their experiences at Hopkins.

Hopkins presents a well-rounded experience for most students, but not every student takes advantage of the academic, social, and extracurricular opportunities. Some students wish that Hopkins encouraged students to get involved in all aspects of University life, but once you realize that it doesn’t, you can make your own choices about how you want to spend your time. The school’s academic reputation and its state-of-the-art facilities are strong points at Hopkins. Campus housing and food have been improved considerably in recent years with new constructions popping up.
