3 College Freshman

Academics: If you were serious enough all the years you were in school and honestly maintain focus evvery semester, along with some easy courses, you will have less stress.

3 College Freshman

Diversity: We are in college and still getting educating about sex. What is so confusing ?, either engage in sexual intercourse or do not, but most of these college girls are either not into sex with annoymous partners, and those who are difficult to find and you have to try more than you should to be with them. Beautiful women can be stuck up, but they are still good looking.;)

3 College Freshman

Drug Safety: You can do drugs on campus if you are of a certain age.

3 College Freshman

Health & Safety: Crime on campus is very low. The only trouble you will find is far way from the campus and if you create the trouble.

3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Professor are helpful, but you may get one that makes interactions awkward.

3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: This college experience is what you want it to be, but you might not have much to work with after living her for a few weeks or months.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: We need unisex bathrooms in the buildings. People need to keep the bathroom clean, this task is not difficult.

2 College Freshman

Greek Life: Male students have started one Greek life, but their main focus is community service and education which is good, but when they plan "fun" events they are not awesome enough for my standards.

3 College Freshman

Athletics: The campus should have bigger facilities for training intensely.

3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: The school is small, but it is in a very boring area. I am getting a very challenging education, but I want to have the wild college experience. If I could choose again I would choose a college nearby, less expensive, but still clean and with technologies, while having time to study and have outrageous fun.

3 College Freshman

Greek Life: Hood has a brotherhood and sisterhood that are more of academic groups. There isn't really a "Greek life."

4 College Freshman

Athletics: Hood is a D3 school. Sports are important but not nearly as much as academics. There are two athletic centers, an older gym and a new facility. They are both great for athletes as well as non-athletes and are used by both.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Hood is a really nice, small private college. The teachers are great for the most part and everyone is really nice on campus. The class sizes are personal and the campus itself down is beautiful.

4 College Junior

Health & Safety: Very concerned about your health and safety. That's why my mom wanted me to pick Hood. She knew that if I were going to be away from home then I needed to be somewhere safe, and this is where she felt was safe for me.

3 College Junior

Overall Experience: Same as before. It is a good school with everything you need. Good school to go to if you want to live away

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: They really help you get your name and face out there for opportunities that may help you with your future. They try to help you be ready for the real world by lining you up with a job out of school.

2 College Junior

Campus Housing: The housing options were okay but they are getting worse. We are starting something new this year and I don't know how I feel about it or how it'll work. We are more or less being pushed to live off campus in the city of Frederick because of the lack of housing, but it is hard to financially afford living off campus when your grants and scholarships are being taken away because you're not "living in on campus housing" anymore... I'm upset that it's so difficult because I'll be losing money next year if I live off campus

3 College Junior

Athletics: They are good. They have what you would want but it's usually being taken over by athletes so if you're a non-athlete then you probably won't feel comfortable going into the gym. I did sports freshman and sophomore year and I still felt a little weird going into the gym when it wasn't practice or game times. Low fan support (only parents of players), low school spirit, teams don't do very well.

3 College Junior

Overall Experience: It's a great school. Small classes and a small college feel but if you are looking for a "college experience" then it is not much of that. It is 75% (or more) commuter school so it is hard to make consistent friends. A lot of people transfer; I would say you either love it or hate it. There's not really an in between. Overall good school but my experience may be different than others.

5 College Junior

Health & Safety: We have a great security in place here. With emergency buttons around campus, and live security guys here who have experience with a criminal justice degree, you feel safe. The students here look out for each other but it's generally as safe as a neighborhood could be. There is a counseling area and health center here that are always welcome, but also you teachers and staff always there to help and listen as well.

5 College Junior

Overall Experience: Most of your teachers all have had jobs within the field that they are teaching so they really give you many great contacts and are able to teach you what you really need to know. There is such a variety of classes to take as well so you never get bored. All of the teachers are very passionate about what they do!

3 College Junior

Overall Experience: There is a plethora of events that are meant to network students, but its a competitive area. Depending on your career, this area is perfect for you and there is so many opportunities, but of me its become a harder process with such competitively.

4 College Junior

Campus Housing: This is a typical residence hall with dorm rooms, but I live in what we call the hotel. It has a spacious elevator that works majority of the time. It has nice bathrooms that are clean. We have one of the nicest kitchens on campus. We have a recreational area to watch TV. We have a computer room and a laundry room where you don't have to pay for your laundry either. I wish we had more common areas on each floor, but nonetheless it's nice.

4 College Junior

Athletics: Hood College used to be an all women's school, so asking about sports is interesting. Our athletics are evolving into something really great, but we haven't reached the point where we want to be as a school. We have top of the line equipment, brand new fields, bread new facilities, and constantly new players that make the game. Campus does get involved with the sports, but we could certainly get more involved.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: 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!

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.
