3 College Freshman

Health & Safety: The administration could definitely be better at handling sexual assault on campus.

5 College Freshman

Greek Life: I'm a member of Greek Life on campus and I could not be more thrilled with the experience. I have made so many connections and friends and it has been an amazing support system for me.

3 College Freshman

Party Scene: The parties are good. I always feel safe. I think its a great fun way to meet other students, and relieve stress.

3 College Freshman

Administration: The administration very much treats all the students as adults who are responsible for themselves. They are willing to help if you need them.

4 College Freshman

Scholarships: As long as you are open and honest and willing to talk to the financial aid office, you will most likely be able to receive the aid that you need. They want you to be able to go to this school.

3 College Freshman

Campus Food: While there are some very nice dining options on campus, many of these close early or are not open at time when the average college student eats, which is typically fairly late at night. Also, the healthy choices can be hard to come by.

4 College Sophomore

Greek Life: university is trying to shut down Greek life, but it is so great.

2 College Sophomore

Athletics: my high school has bigger and nicer facilities

4 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: lots of options around the city

Off-Campus Housing: I haven't experienced off campus housing, but I think that upperclassmen are very pleased.

2 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: A few restaurants are around. Subway, Coldstone Creamery, Niwana, and Chipotle are a few. There isn't much else. Everything is super repetitive.

3 College Freshman

Party Scene: If you want to have a social life, you have almost no choice but to go Greek. Once rush starts, all the parties are only for frats and sorority. You have to work to get to a party.

4 College Freshman

Campus Food: Normally food is not that bad, but there could definitely be more options in the FFC. CharMar is ridiculously expensive.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Freshman housing is not all that bad. The AMR's are traditional dorm style, and I hate that the only common room is in the basement really far away from where anyone actually lives. Plus, you have to go outside, and then back into the same building to get there. Terrible surrounding neighborhood, don't leave campus.

College Senior

Campus Housing: I do not live on campus

Guys & Girls: There are tons of great personalities to meet. The students here quickly adapt to the surroundings and outgoing nature of Baltimore and Peabody students.

Off-Campus Housing: You pay for what you get. Most housing options are going to be pretty expensive the closer you want to be to school.

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.
