Campus, professors, and housing are all great! However, adjunct professors are not treated great by the institution, and the curriculum seems to be shifting away from their liberal-arts image toward a more business and STEM focus, which is frustrating.

I attended Hamline University as a transfer student from a community college. Hamline made the transition seamless and I felt welcome from day one. My professors were always helpful and available for one on one meetings. I always felt the professors wanted each and every student to succeed. A benefit of being a smaller private universities is you have a chance to spend more time with your peers and create strong and lasting friendships. Overall, I believe Hamline University is a great place to study that provides excellent opportunity after graduation.
Great university overall! It can lack in an area here or there, but in general it's a solid college with solid academics, great surrounding area, lively student life, and many resources to help students achieve their best selves.
