4 Recent Alumnus

Overall Experience: My experience thus far has been very rewarding.

3 College Junior

Overall Experience: Course offers are very diverse, but the amount of spaces available in every class are not as plentiful as I would have liked. Furthermore, I found it difficult to find professors who take a vested interest in their students' well being in the larger introductory classes.

5 College Junior

Overall Experience: A degree from Johns Hopkins University will open doors to opportunities that may not have been available to Hopkins non-affiliates. The academic resources and berth of research done on the Hopkins campus (as well as the proximity and ease of access to JHMI and Bloomberg School of Public Health) are invaluable assets to a career in research or medicine.

4 College Junior

Health & Safety: School administrators have done a substantial amount to ensure that students feel well protected and supported on campus.

3 College Junior

Campus Housing: I enjoyed my freshman year experience in Wolman Hall because of the social atmosphere, spaciousness, and cleanliness of the facilities. However, my time at McCoy was disappointing, as we dealt with a rat infestation situation all throughout my spring semester. Attempts by pest control to capture the rodents were not successful until the final week of school.

3 College Junior

Greek Life: Greek life is certainly an option for those who are interested in joining a fraternity/ sorority, but certainly does not dominate every aspect of campus life. The dues are relatively steep for what the fraternities and sororities offer.

3 College Junior

Athletics: Student involvement in the athletics has been relatively low in the past couple of years, but the athletics department is making a concerted effort to increase participation in and excitement for varsity sports.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: The community on campus and the opportunities that are available to undergraduate students are unparalleled.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I've had a great time here! There have been some bumps along the road, but overall it is a great university with greater professors and great post-graduation success rate.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Hopkins has a great network of people that help you achieve your career goals. It's also very easy to get an internship or a research position!

3 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: Some concerns arise in the area of health and safety (it is a college in a city, so it is understandable that there are safety issues). Sexual assault is not taken as seriously as it should be by the administration.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: Decent housing, not great, but the building, amenities, and RAs get the job done at the end of the day.

4 College Sophomore

Greek Life: Greek life isn't one of the strongest attributes if the college, but it is something that is clearly present.

4 College Sophomore

Athletics: A lot of emphasis on Lacrosse, but apart from that...not really a sport school.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I can see where some people might have problems with the administration and other services at the school, but so far I have loved the environment, courses, professors, and overall feel of the campus!

3 College Junior

Health & Safety: There needs to be mandatory sexual assault seminars for the whole student body, especially people who join Greek life.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: They are currently revitalizing the career center which is very important because the old career center was not helpful at all.

Campus Housing: Really just depends which dorm you get and whether your roommate is ideal for you.

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.
