4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: Homewood campus itself is very safe. Security and our Hopkins Police take their jobs very seriously. It's when students wander off campus to neighboring baltimore areas when it becomes dangerous.

Campus Housing: I thought room and board was slightly expensive, but the maintenance of the dorms are always up to par. The laundry rooms are outdated though and need to be renovated. The social atmosphere is lacking, but only because most students are focused throughout the day,

Greek Life: Greek life is a way to connect and network with other great students. Greek-life affiliates do a lot of community service in the city of Baltimore and they have some sense of balance between academics and a social life. Of course there are those fraternities/sororities who use the title just for partying, but in majority, the Greeks are well-established and levelheaded.

Athletics: Athletics are meaningless on campus and the only supported team is our Lacrosse team. Everyone spends most of their time in the library. To go to a sporting event would be detrimental.

3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Johns Hopkins has an unlimited amount of opportunities, but as a freshman undergraduate it was very difficult to get accustomed to the rigor of the courses and the extensiveness of the workload.

3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Once you get pass the intro classes it is easier for those who have issues speaking to do better.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: The school lives up to its name.

3 College Freshman

Health & Safety: It fits the common perceptions of a college campus.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: It really is up to the person to make with what the have, though the lottery system could be improved

3 College Freshman

Greek Life: I heard and seen the changes in Greek life and it seems to be ever evolving.

3 College Freshman

Athletics: There's history with some of the sports teams and the university reflects that.

3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I would still go to this school if I had a choice. I just would have different expectations when going in.

4 College Junior

Party Scene: Fun but no judgement for the nerds. Everyone respects others' choices.

4 College Junior

Party Scene: Frat houses only, and only one weekends if not a member.

5 College Junior

Academics: Loving the professors. But our major doesn't offer too many courses because of its small size (environmental engineering, about 15 people/year)

4 College Junior

Diversity: Good on every level except for political diversity. Most here are liberal/moderate, I've rarely seen conservatives except for voice for life.

5 College Junior

Drug Safety: No one forces you to do it if you don't. Drinking is prevalent though.

5 College Junior

Health & Safety: People are outspoken about this issue, and administration takes it seriously as well.

5 College Junior

Overall Experience: Professors are very knowledgeable. Most are accessible. Class sizes are generally small for smaller majors and there are lectures for general science courses if you are into those as well. A variety of courses are offered

3 College Junior

Overall Experience: The career center is USELESS except for finance or BMEs which is about half of us anyway. But for smaller majors nobody in the career center knows anything so we have to work very hard on our own to accomplish things.

4 College Junior

Campus Housing: Overall it's nice. Suite style housing is my favorite, although you might lose some social components to a classical dorm style life.

3 College Junior

Greek Life: Most of the people in greek life are nice, some "top sororities" and "top fraternities" are snobs, just avoid them like the plague.

3 College Junior

Athletics: No one really cares about lacrosse. And the athletes think they are better than everyone else.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: It's a great environment, my department is extremely small so our professors know us pretty well. The people we meet are generally very smart and easygoing. Some are stuck-up pre-meds but not many.

3 College Sophomore

Greek Life: At this offsite campus i have not ever encountered any greek life involved students.

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.
