Athletics: Pretty decent, except the actual attendance to sporting events is usually pretty low. Most of the excitement for these events is around the pre game.

Off-Campus Housing: Great. Loved living off campus and you FINALLY get the responsibility of an adult when you get to live away from the bubble.

Campus Food: After the renovation Kimball dining hall's food is significantly better, and other options are good too so you don't get bored with the same food everyday.

Off-Campus Dining: You have to pay to take a taxi to Shrewsbury St., but there you can find many nice restaurants.

Party Scene: The party scene is good for most people, but not if you prefer a large scale party scene.

Local Area: It is best to know where you are going before you venture off. However, there actually are things to do in Worcester and in neighboring towns.

4 College Sophomore

Majors: Each department at Holy Cross has a close-knit group of students and professors. Majors become familiar with the department and are able to participate in field trips, research, etc that supplement and expand class material.

Overall ExperienceWhat's this?

View student contributors

Students were mixed, though generally positive, about their overall view of Holy Cross. The social scene seems to be the victim of most criticism, but there is no question that Holy Cross provides all its students with a first-rate education.

Most students are friendly, outgoing, and fun, and making friends is not a problem. However, some students complain about the school’s homogeneity. Few students seem to want to do anything that is outside of the norm. In all though, most students are very happy at Holy Cross, as evidenced by the school’s unusually high retention rate.
