1 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Awful college with bad living conditions.

4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: This is a small college in a small town. There are not very many major crimes committed here. If you do happen to feel unsafe you can call public safety for help.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: The classes are always small, which is nice because you receive individualized attention. The small science classes are especially nice because we do not always have to share equipment. Most professors are honestly here to teach.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: There is a strong alumni network. The advisors are knowledgeable and helpful.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: The dorms are close to most of the classes. The longest walk you will ever have to take is five minutes. Having a good RA will make all the difference.

3 College Freshman

Greek Life: The greek life exists, but it is not overpowering. You can be a part of it and it won't take up all of your time, so it's easy to be involved with multiple things.

Athletics: Some of the teams do very well, like basketball, soccer, volleyball, and track. School spirit could be better, but it's there.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I like the hands-on science program. Professors are very involved in their teaching, and they want us to succeed.

5 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: Helath and safety are always available and important to administrators

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: People do get helped in looking for oppurtunities for job prospects, although i dont think that those options are unique to every student, and everyone is usually given the same advice for this subject

3 College Sophomore

Greek Life: I dont feel they have any effect on the students that join them. Just another club

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Wish there was an indoor basketball court

3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I really enjoy a lot of aspects at my new school. My school has a very new science center where I love to meet with friends to study of just hang out. I am part of the football team so I made a lot of friends from day 1. Friends for life no doubt. One aspect I'm not a huge fan of, is the size of the town in which my college is located. At times, it feels very small to me. There isn't always something to do and a lot of the time it gets very boring. It's also located about 2 hours from where I grew up, so I don't always have the time to make it home as much as I would like to see old friends and family. Other then those few small problems, I love it here.

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

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

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.
