Fantastic Art Department! State of the art glass blowing studio. Campus is beautiful and well maintained. In a small town so it feels comfortable and safe with good values. I enjoy the small class sizes and the ability to connect with my instructors personally.

Hastings may be a small college but they have so many things going on all the time. They make sure that the students are getting to know each other and are always doing different activity's. They make you feel welcomed and apart of the family and the culture that they have there. Sports are huge whether you are an athlete or no they still support you with whatever you do.
While Hastings College is a beautiful campus, it is not at all ethnically diverse, faculty and coaches are not particularly the kindest, and the financial portion of the college continues to rise despite its already high tuition.
