3 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: Personally I feel extremely safe walking around on campus, and going across N Charles St. to get to and from my dorm. Some students feel safer in groups, and generally it's a better idea because there have been a couple of robberies around campus. However, measures are being taken to increase security, and currently there is construction going on on N Charles St so it is not as lighted as it used to be. If you ever feel unsafe when walking to your dorm at night you can always call security to send you an escort. HellWell, the student wellness center is not all that great with diagnosis. Besides my opinion, there are those of several other students whom I have talked with who say that they were only given proper treatment after visiting the emergency center, which is nearby. Security can also drive you to the health center or emergency center if you feel to sick to walk.

Computers: There are usually plenty of computers available at the library and the computing center, and there are also a limited amount of laptops available for use in the labs, but you are expected to have your own laptop, and the reason why there is so much availability is because most people do. Recently, the wireless network has been going in and out a lot, but switching over to the guest network usually works. Printing can add up quickly if you are printing a lot of pages; it's handy to have your own printer (or at least one that you and your roommate share) especially if you are taking a class that requires reports.

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.
