Hellenic College & Holy Cross Greek Orthodox School of Theology Reviews

36 reviews
All Categories
Courses are on a high school level at best, with many teachers going on personal tangents or arguing with students for the sake of personal belief, rather than teaching or enlightenment. Most classes for a second semester freshman are 20+, with up to 35-40 students in gen-eds.

If you are not a part of the Greek Orthodox Archdiocese (Antiochian, Russian, a catechumen, or another denomination), there will be quite a bit of discrimination. Many say that the school has tested their faith, and they sometimes lose this battle.
The school is best known for being the only fully accredited Greek Orthodox seminary in America. As of the time of my writing this, both the undergraduate and graduate schools have exemplary deans who genuinely care about the students, and usually know the students personally. They are working hard to help the school rise up to its potential.

That being said, the college's programs are generally good, but the Religious Studies program is really stellar due to the overqualified (in a good way) professors who teach the courses. Many of them are Harvard professors who are connected with the college and want the students to have the best possible education. However, I will mention that the program is misnamed--it is really a Theology program and not so much a survey on world religions, as the current name suggests.

The college's most unique pulling point is that as a student, one can get a good education in an Orthodox environment. This has its benefits and drawbacks, but it is usually nice to be around students with whom you share a common faith.
