I love Hood College! There is always something to do so you are never stuck in your room bored. Some classes are challenging, butI would rather this than a school that doesn't teach well. Hood College may be small, but there are so many different things here, like clubs, activities, and even a few parties. This is a great school for many who don't like to be around too many people. As a proud Hood student, I can say that this is a great school.

It's a beautiful, small campus with a variety of classes and clubs to join. It's located about 10min walking distance from downtown Frederick where you get great food, shopping, and nightlife. You are 30min away from D.C. and Baltimore where you have even more doors open of internships and careers. It sounds great right?! Well the part that doesn't get this school a 5 star rating, it's expensive. Those internship and career opportunities for certain majors are extremely competitive because so many in this area want to do the same thing. In other words, you have to know what you want and be able to fight for it. The classes here are wonderful, teaching not only the curriculum but also life lessons along the way!

This college needs students who really want to party and have fun. Most professors are fun and have no issue with helping students while others are elderly, cranky, conceded, and condescending. The tuition seems unnecessarily expensive. The area has interesting and historical locations, but the local area is suburban and boring.
