Campus Housing: I had a unique experience. Freshman year, I was placed in a converted bed-and-breakfast (overflow housing). I didn't choose it, I was just placed into it. It was horrible socially and not worth the cost. While I paid as much as a student living in a single room in Wolman or McCoy, I essentially lived in a large triple as my two suitemates had to go through my room to get to their room.

2 College Senior

Athletics: Lacrosse is the only Division I sport, and it does attract spectators during the spring. But for the majority of students it seems that athletics aren't that important, which is not necessarily a bad thing!

4 College Senior

Overall Experience: JHU is academically rigorous and serious about giving undergraduates research opportunities.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Professors are great and very easily approachable.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: The career center is great with helping students find the internships and/or jobs that they want.

5 College Freshman

Campus Housing: The dorms are great because you have a lot of choices about whether you want to dorm in a single, double, or triple and whether you want to live in suite-style housing or have communal bathrooms.

Greek Life: Greek life is a big part of campus life, but you don't have to be a part of it if you don't want to. There are plenty of ways to make friends and have fun besides Greek life.

5 College Freshman

Athletics: I am not a super athletic person, but I know that the facilities are great.

Overall ExperienceWhat's this?

View student contributors

Students who love Hopkins and students who hate it both recognize that JHU isn’t the school for everyone. Many students believe that classes at JHU are just as hard as Ivy League schools, but they complain that Hopkins professors grade much harder. Many students wish that Hopkins offered grade inflation, as other top schools do, since even people who work hard sometimes end up with low grades. This influences some students to put studying above any social activity, in the hopes of being one of the few people in a class to receive an “A.” Hopkins offers a variety of social programming, but no one forces students to participate, and there’s no one holding your hand and leading you to fun activities. Even though students complain, most say that they’ve enjoyed being challenged by their experiences at Hopkins.

Hopkins presents a well-rounded experience for most students, but not every student takes advantage of the academic, social, and extracurricular opportunities. Some students wish that Hopkins encouraged students to get involved in all aspects of University life, but once you realize that it doesn’t, you can make your own choices about how you want to spend your time. The school’s academic reputation and its state-of-the-art facilities are strong points at Hopkins. Campus housing and food have been improved considerably in recent years with new constructions popping up.
