Party Scene: They use to be big in the sport houses, but there are no longer sport houses so now its just kickbacks in apartments, pretty boring.

5 College Junior

Off-Campus Dining: Frederick's food and community events are great, you just have to get involved.

4 College Junior

3 College Junior

3 College Junior

Scholarships: They scam you in by giving you a lot of freshman scholarships, then they take them all away and make you beg for scraps on other scholarships. It is great for freshman, but so many transfer because they just take away our funding.

3 College Junior

Campus Housing: Depends on the dorm you are in. Go for Shriner or Coblentz.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: It's great if you can get a single dorm, but the doubles are way too small, and life is only okay in 3 out of the 5 dorms

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: I really don't dine out locally so I only know about a few places

4 College Freshman

Administration: They work hard everyday to ensure our safety on campus

3 College Freshman

Scholarships: It was very hard at first trying to receive aid but I went to the right financial aid advisor and she supplied me with all the funding that I was eligible to receive

3 College Freshman

Overall ExperienceWhat's this?

View student contributors

Four years endlessly stretch out ahead of you when you're miles away from home, in an unfamiliar area, living with a stranger, and surrounded by hundreds of people you don't know. For many, just trying to adjust to a new style of education while being away from home can make a student feel like turning around and going back to what they know. But it helps when your family is by your side, right? And that's how people describe Hood: as a big friendly family. There are some loose screws and oddballs, but that's what makes a family unique. However, no matter what happens, your family is always behind your back and will support you. So when a tragedy hits someone at Hood, faculty, staff, and students are all prepared to do whatever they need to do to help out. Roommates frequently become best friends, and professors become valuable mentors, filled with a wealth of knowledge for students. In addition, the numerous exciting opportunities for internships, jobs, and clubs leave many students living a busy and hectic lifestyle—which most choose to embrace.

After four years, when students leave the lush campus grounds, they go out into the real world prepared to work, confident that they have the knowledge to do anything. Students have experience in a variety of subjects, thanks to a diverse liberal arts background, and are ready to take on new challenges. However, despite all of the good things about Hood, it’s not for everyone. For some people, it's just too small. Others believe there just isn't enough to do to keep them occupied. Also, some just don't feel at home in Frederick. But for most students, Hood is their real home, and the best four years of their lives. And even though there are certain things students wish they could change, time and time again, without a moment's hesitation, students say they would still choose Hood if they had to start over.
