3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: There needs to be better control over hygiene, however, they need to update the buildings which they are in the process of doing,

1 College Sophomore

Greek Life: We dont have greek life so..

3 College Sophomore

Athletics: Some of the over arching systems can make a problem. I watched a coach get pushed out due to politics.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I find that after freshmen orientation they need to just let the students go, forcing us into events long after we are very busy is stressful

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Professor are nice but hard

4 College Sophomore

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

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

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.
