5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Holy Cross College is the best, there isn't any other college like it. It is like a big family with both professors and students making Holy Cross College one of the best places i've ever been

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Overall this school is nicely put together. As previously stated the staff/ professors for the most part are truly passionate in their teachings. The student to professor ratio is convenient as professors have more opportunities to work one on one with students. The athletics is strong overall for how small the school is, and the dorm life is great. While there are a few flaws such as the cafe quality, and some interesting professors that don't seem to truly understand their own class, overall this school is great and I believe it will continue to have a good impact on me.

Overall Experience: While the internship program is not as strong here, we do get invited to go across the street to Notre Dame where there are boundless opportunities for internships and networking. I believe the value of a degree from this school is very strong due to the fact that Notre Dame is in the name, and it's right across the street, which provides Holy Cross students with more opportunities.

Campus Housing: Living on campus is not only a part of "the college experience" but it has also changed my perspective on life. Originally when I first arrived here I was not talking to anyone, however as I began to get to know people and open up I truly felt at home. The dorms are your typical average sized college dorms, however the cleaning staff is great. The showers and restrooms are always clean due to the hard work of the cleaning staff. Living on campus is also not only convenient because classes are so close by, but it has truly shaped me into a different person and made me a more responsible adult.

Athletics: While there aren't as many options due to the fact that this is a smaller school, the athletics for not being a top tier school are fairly decent. There is a strong student support for the basketball and soccer, and hockey is starting to grow more popular as well. Overall the athletics are great for what we have.

Overall Experience: Overall I'd like to say that my school is a very welcoming and friendly place to be. You really get to know your fellow classmates and professors. The student to teacher ratio is great, unlike most schools where there are too many in a class, here the professors have the ability to make time to help individual students. As far as the options for classes go, they are limited. One example is there is no computer science major, which is one is the biggest and ever growing popular major in today's society. The benefit of going back here is that it is also right across from Notre Dame, and Saint Marrys, so you do have other options that you could try to squeeze into your schedule. In conclusion this school is very welcoming and friendly, however there aren't as many traditional options.

Health & Safety: Because we have such a small student body, the students here are like family and they know almost everyone here on campus. People will know if people we do not know are on campus or new. The security is quite well.

Overall Experience: People here all want to graduate and do well. The school forces all students to complete an internship to help students get a foot in the door to their career they possibly want to get into

Overall Experience: Holy Cross College. What I can say about this small- family oriented school is that it's great. Small classroom sizes, friendly teachers & staff. The multiple schools I applied too were all catholic/private schools, and have never felt so sure about my decision about coming to Holy Cross College. Going out of state has been the best decision, it has really helped me mature and grow in ways that I couldn't have if I stayed at home. I had many options but I knew that Holy Cross was the best option.

Diversity: There is a broad array of students that come to Holy Cross College that have different religious backgrounds. Students come from different regions of the U.S. and some from other countries. Everyone is very supportive and encouraged others to be themselves.

Drug Safety: Holy Cross College is a dry campus, meaning that alcohol isn't allowed in the dorms. The same applies to any type of drug.

Athletics: Back to the community aspect, intramural sports are a big aspect of student life. Students, faculty, and others look forward to them.

Overall Experience: Holy Cross College is unique in that it is a relatively small college and once you attend here it feels as if you are a part of a community or something bigger than just yourself. The college experience is different for everyone, but it truly depends on what the individual makes of it and I think that Holy Cross College does a great job of encouraging students to get involved.
