4 College Senior

Health & Safety: Campus crime is reported daily via an email subscription. Security vans are everywhere, including an emergency medical campus. I've never felt unsafe on campus, but areas off campus can be sketchy.

5 College Senior

Academics: Nursing. Accelerated program. Fast and intense. Need to be self directed and self motivated. LOVE it!

5 College Senior

Academics: Love the caliber of education. The research opportunities and connections JHU SON has put these students at an advantage. Transitions practicum especially helpful.

3 College Senior

Off-Campus Housing: Nursing School unaffiliated with housing. Living in East Baltimore or Baltimore city expensive.

3 College Senior

Health & Safety: Security around campus is great, but there is a lot of theft around the campus at the Med/Nursing school.. You need to be street smart when walking around (ie: don't be on your phone; listening to headphones). You need to be aware of your surroundings. I have been a resident in the city for 3 years and have never had any issues.

4 College Senior

Off-Campus Dining: Off- Campus dining in Baltimore is amazing! They have your typical chain restaurants, but also have unique, independently owned restaurants. There are so many options to choose from that vary in genre, price, and environment.

4 College Senior

Scholarships: I thought the process was super easy and received a decent amount of aid from the school even thought I believe I was eligible for more grant money. Staff is extremely helpful and willing to take the time to help you and explain the process in a way that is easy to understand.

4 College Junior

Administration: Resident advisors are constantly on duty to make sure underclassmen are following the rules in dormitories. For example, they have room checks and bathroom checks to make sure there is no alcohol/drugs and/or pets. There is a huge penalty for any rule that is broken, whether it is meeting with the Dean or being suspended/expelled.

5 College Junior

Transportation: There are collegetown shuttles and regular buses that take you to the places you need to go: the train station, the mall, Inner Harbor, and other downtown areas. Transportation is free for Johns Hopkins students, which is another plus! The buses come regularly, which is very convenient.

5 College Freshman

Academics: In most areas we have some of the most challenging courses, the best professors, and a generally phenomenal academic experience.

4 College Freshman

Academics: As a Computer Engineer workload is heavy, classes are hard and material is challenging. This happens to be a major reason I chose Hopkins and anyone who comes here should expect this.

4 College Freshman

Administration: The job of the campus police is to keep the surrounding areas out of Hopkins and the Hopkins students in. That being said, RA's vary greatly in strictness, so different people have different experiences, though most RA's seem to be easy going.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: The rooms for the freshman dorms are relatively small, but the facilities are nice and new, the dining hall is surprisingly good and the general experience is a good one.

1 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: The restaurants in the surrounding area really aren't that great. I'm often scared to leave campus after 5:00PM anyway.

2 College Freshman

Campus Quality: The social scene is horrendous. I'd be especially careful if you're not from the east coast. I know that I ignored warnings of the ubiquitous unfriendliness of the east coast, and I regret that quite a lot. The people who come to this school are often very ambitious and see friendship as an advantage and nothing more. Campus life is split into two categories: there are the party kids and the book kids. About a third of students love getting wasted, and the other two thirds see college as an opportunity to study, get good grades, and get good internships.

4 College Freshman

Campus Quality: The buildings are really beautiful. The campus is kept very clean. The athletic center is pretty good; there could be more machines, but it's pretty good. The library is gorgeous, which is appropriate because that's where a majority of students spend a majority of their time.

1 College Freshman

Greek Life: The greek life here is all about getting wasted. People tend to be antisocial, so the only way people know how to talk to each other is to take shots together.

4 College Junior

Transportation: Transportation at Hopkins is pretty great. Hopkins offers both a bus and a shuttle service to get students to any number of places: the train station, the peabody school, the medical campus, the grocery store etc... Between Hopkins services, you can arrive to most places that will ever be necessary. For the other places, Baltimore has decent public transportation. The Charm City Circulator is free and goes many places that Hopkins has no need for transportation to. For everything else, there are taxis and zip cars. Overall, getting around is not too difficult.

3 College Junior

Off-Campus Housing: There are lots of apartments and row houses for rent. Depending on how much you're willing to pay, there are really nice apartments in good proximity. It's also possible to find decent apartments for relatively low cost when compared with a cities like New York or Boston. In summary, B+ means good availability, good quality, and mostly good proximity.

4 College Freshman

Technology: I don't generally go to the computer labs. When I need to print something, there is always a print station available. Wifi is available in all of the buildings on campus, but sometimes it's a little slow. I would definitely recommend a personal computer because you will end up doing a lot of your homework online or using applications like Microsoft Office.

4 College Freshman

Guys & Girls: I would say that most people are concerned with their health, which is very obvious in looking at how skinny most students are. A majority of people work out regularly. However, not everyone takese the time to look put together every day. Most girls wear little to no makeup. Boys usually dress in the typical boy uniform of tshirts and jeans/shorts.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: Rooms are pricey and the location isn't that great. Nothing fancy.

4 College Sophomore

Guys & Girls: Guys and girls are really nice, smart and professional. There are a lot of jewish orthodox students.

Drug Safety: As far as I know there is no drug use at the Carey Business School.

4 College Sophomore

Scholarships: They are reasonably quick to get back to you and helpful answering questions.

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.
