5 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: So many options, some within walking/biking distance of campus.

5 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: Downtown Frederick is awesome for dining options.

5 College Sophomore

Scholarships: I have almost a full ride

2 College Sophomore

Party Scene: The parties are just awful and everyone knows each other.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Food: The people in the cafeteria do a good job. Also there's a soft serve ice cream machine.

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

5 College Freshman

Athletics: They make sure that everyone is involved and they are very caring and nurturing people.

College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: I live on campus so i really don't know the living conditions

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

Party Scene: The party scene is not all that because after awhile you get tired of seeing the same people everyday

2 College Freshman

Campus Food: There are not many options when it comes to the dinning services. The breakfast is the best eating time out of the whole day.

5 College Freshman

Campus Housing: I love the many activities that hood has on campus for resident. Each dorm has a different uniqueness with different themes in the building.

1 College Freshman

Greek Life: Hood does not have a greek system.

4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: Campus security does its job and safety is basically not an issue at all.

3 College Freshman

Administration: Policies are as you would expect at most colleges. Visitation in the dorms is easy. I usually don't even sign in my guests.

College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: I live on campus so I don't know.

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: There are loads of great restaurants to eat at. The best are the privately owned restaurants downtown.

3 College Freshman

Scholarships: The financial aid process is fairly painless but tuition is still expensive with financial aid and scholarships.

3 College Freshman

Athletics: The quality of equipment in the gym is great but is not the best for weight lifters and athletes. There is only one squat rack and there is a policy against slamming weights. It's too much like planet fitness. Lots of machines/cables not enough free weights and power lifting equipment. For the average person trying to stay in shape, it's perfect.

4 College Freshman

Diversity: The diversity is good here. The student population is mostly comprised of people from all over the east coast. I have made friends with several international students.

5 College Freshman

Local Area: I happen to love the city of Frederick. Coming from a small town, it is a great transition to a bigger area. It isn't overwhelmingly large but there is lots to do especially in the down town area which is five minutes from campus. The only people that complain about Frederick are those from huge cities such as New York, which is to be expected. Great night life if you're 21.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: The buildings are fairly old but some have been recently renovated. I can't complain about them.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: It can be a lot better for what you pay for. A lot of students choose the apartments over the dorm life. The apartments are much more worth it for value, and is cheaper.

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.
