2 College Junior

Overall Experience: My previous college was very affordable, and i was awarded a full tuition scholarship. This worked out well, except for the fact that I personally watched my Music program die. It went from 20 students to just a handful in 3 years. The school itself did nothing to help the music program.

3 College Junior

Overall Experience: HC is a good school overall, financial aid and the on-campus dining could be improved but the faculty in the Biology department do a great job and genuinely want you to succeed.

Scholarships: They can only give you scholarships up to tuition.

3 College Freshman

Party Scene: All the parties are out the houses of the different teams.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: Its ok. You have to travel a little ways to get near one.

3 College Freshman

Administration: They are most strict on alcohol in the dorms. They fine people.

3 College Freshman

Campus Food: The food depends on the day. Wing day is the best.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: It is ok to live on campus. Everything is very close together.

3 College Freshman

Administration: The strictness is okay. I had a situation during first semester that ruined my whole semester, and it was dealt with a little unfairly from my perspective.

4 College Freshman

Scholarships: Love my financial aid, but am in jeopardy of losing it all, and if I do, I won't be able to afford to continue to attend.

3 College Freshman

Campus Food: Big range of options on a day-to-day basis, but I continually found myself eating the same things daily.

5 College Freshman

Campus Housing: If you live in Bronc or Babcock - full renovations after summer of 2014, just amazing!

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: Mostly fast food but there is some great Mexican food.

4 College Freshman

Administration: I can sleep well without having to worry about noise, which was my main worry when starting college.

5 College Freshman

Scholarships: Get good grades and a good GPA in high school and interview well, then you are likely to get a Crimson Scholarship.

1 College Freshman

Campus Food: I feel like I only eat there in order to continue to survive my college life.

5 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Some of the dorms are small, but no matter the size of the rooms it feels very homey. The kitchen is beautiful ever since the remodel, and having a fridge on each floor is very helpful. Spending time with people is very easy with the lounges on each floor, and we all feel like a family which makes it a very livable situation.

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: I have heard great things. I have yet to live off campus.

4 College Freshman

Administration: I would agree with everything that has to do with Hastings policies. The are fair and easy to follow.

5 College Freshman

Scholarships: The staff worked well with me and put in effort to assure that I received all that I needed.

4 College Freshman

Campus Food: When going to HSU for lunch. It sometimes is a hit or miss. Now that they have been providing more options, it is starting to be more hits. I am really enjoying it!

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: I really enjoyed living on campus this semester. It made walking to class super easy and I also made quite a bit of friends on the way. Hastings College is filled with very generous people. That included both students and the staff, everyone was extremely helpful while pointing me in the right direction since I was a new student. Tuition really seems like a lot, but Hastings is really good with providing scholarships to reduce that cost and make it more affordable. I really enjoy Hastings and all that it has provided.

3 College Sophomore

Athletics: The athletic facilities are okay, the arena is great, weight room is mediocre, football/soccer field is in good shape but requires maintenance. The indoor facility is awful, lacks any adequate air conditioning and has poor flooring. Gets very warm very quickly in there and needs to be renovated or a new one needs to be built. Fan support is okay, depending on the weather, if Nebraska is playing in Lincoln on Saturdays in the fall, and if the teams are doing well. Coaches are mediocre, lot of lip service and big talk, bring in a high amount of athletes for the administration, not necessarily all recruits are for the sport.

4 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: Prices are usually better than the housing on campus and the population of the school somewhat forces seniors to move off campus to make room for the lower classes.

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: Not a whole lot of variety in the area, cost is average and convenience is good. Student discounts are nonexistent. Variety is poor and there is not much in the area, just sports bars and chain fast food and a couple mexican and chinese places.

Overall ExperienceWhat's this?

View student contributors

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.
