4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: So far I love HWS, yes there are things that I wish could change but I love all the experiences that I've had.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Career service is very helpful, they reviewed my resume for a summer job application that I was considering.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: I lived in an all female dorm my first year and I loved it. The space was generally kept clean.

3 College Sophomore

Athletics: The sports team are good, and the gym facility for non athletes is great as well.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: This school is great, except for some snobby students.

3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: There is a great network of alums who help get kids jobs and internships. The career services offices are really good too.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I like how close the students and teachers become and i like the size of the classes. I like that you arent just another face in the croud but they actually know who you are.

3 College Freshman

Health & Safety: I have never experienced anything to make me feel uncomfurtable on campus.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: There are both Single sexed dorms and Co-Ed which is nice for the people who like their rooms quiet or like to be right in the center of attention.

3 College Freshman

Greek Life: There are only Fraternity's no Sorortiy's so its not a huge part of greek life.

4 College Freshman

Athletics: Everything a the school looks really good and there are work out areas for people who dont play sports too.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: So far the overall experience is really good and everyone is friendly and makes you feel welcomed to the school and campus.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: There is a wide variety of courses that are offered depending on what you are interested in. Class sizes range from 5 to 30 (30 if you are in a highly demanded course) and there is a lot of 1:1 time with your professor. All the professors I've had are funny and very approachable and are willing to work with you. They are also very concerned about your well-being and your performance in their class. Classes use media and textbooks a lot.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: The quality of the alumni network is amazing! And there are several opportunities to meet them at campus alumni events. The career services office is very good at helping you search fro jobs/ internships around campus or your hometown.

4 College Junior

Health & Safety: Since the incident, a ton of necessary steps and security measures have been taken to prevent a reoccurrence.

5 College Junior

Campus Housing: The housing is what you make it. The room sin all honesty are pretty nice!! So when people complain and call a building "dirty" it's because of the people that live there... not the building. Overall, the housing process, social atmosphere and convenience is very good!

2 College Junior

Greek Life: At my school Greek life is only available for Men. Which is disappointing because then they control majority of the party scene and girls are left at their mercy (in terms of trying to get in). I wish there were sororities on campus but I've heard that's a long uphill battle that not many are willing to take on. Apart from that Greek life does participate in community activities, so they do, do their part!

3 College Junior

Athletics: We are great at sports, or a select few anyway. I rated it as "it's okay" because the fan support is orientated towards the larger teams and not necessarily the best performing. Football (of course) as well as men and Women's Soccer get the most fan support. That's only 3 sports (2 if you count soccer as one)... That's a little sad, and I'm pretty sure they get the most funding. But of course larger teams = larger number of alums who give back.

The athletic facilities are okay but there is room for improvement. And team performance across the board is always very good!

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: My favorite experiences are at school events that take place at "classic" school places such as the Quad and The Docks. My school is unique because it is very liberal, so every student's voice has an opportunity to be heard, and issues can be addressed. If I had the chance to do it all over I would not choose this school only because academically it is too liberal for my taste. I came in to college knowing exactly what I wanted to do, and the liberal system is set up so that you can experience a little bit of everything, which is not bad per se, but it can be considered a waste of time for those who know what they want. So it's really a personal preference.

3 College Freshman

Health & Safety: I generally feel pretty safe, this is a small town with not much around.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: What you really get from graduating here is the name. The alumni network is extensive and the name of the school alone speaks volumes to the outside world.

3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I think you're promised a lot more than you actually receive. Some professors are great but others seem to be uninterested in learning and here more for their research and own personal gains.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: The on campus housing is probably relatively average. However, you're required to live on campus until your senior year which is disappointing.

2 College Freshman

Greek Life: This school, being a coordinate college system, only offers fraternities. Women do not play a role in greek life and have zero opportunity to be in a sorority.

3 College Freshman

Athletics: I'm not really involved in athletics.
