Hastings College Reviews
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.
I have only visited Hastings, but I will be going there next year for school. I got to sit in on an education class, a band rehearsal, and a choir rehearsal. All of the students were really welcoming and loving. They didn't make me stand out like a visitor but involved me in the class.
There is no Greek Housing at my school. Greek life has events that go on just for Greeks such as dinners and homecoming games. The dues paid are mostly to enjoy these activities. Parties are not thrown as a Greek body. Greeks effect the community with the events that they plan or the community service that they do in the community. Greeks often set up tables in the student union to raise money for other organizations or their own fun events. My Sorority did community service at the local pet shelter, but we hope to do more in the future.
