Hillsdale College Reviews
Review Hillsdale College
I have attended Hillsdale for almost a year now, and it has been great! The professors sincerely care about the students' education and are always there for them. Since it is a small college, the community is tightly-knit; students can hardly walk across campus without saying hello to at least one person, students have movie nights and mixers together, and sometimes will even be invited to dine at professors' houses. Hillsdale is academically challenging, which creates an excellence that allows students to self-govern, and discover how to think.
Hillsdale College prepares students in every way to become independent, successful, disciplined, and well-rounded citizens who engage in their communities and are life-long learners. The academics are rigorous for all students in any major, and faculty and advisors are invested in helping students meet their goals. The College provides an excellent climate for diversity, which is present and will hopefully continue to increase. Hillsdale is dedicated to its mission and turns out alumni who are passionate about encouraging future classes.
The commitment to the Liberal Arts at Hillsdale College, i.e., understanding what makes us human and therefore how best to live fulfilling lives, and the way in which all of my studies speak to this question, is what makes Hillsdale unique. The professors are also incredible. I have had 3 hour lunches 1 on 1 with my professors in our cafeteria; I meet with them regularly in their office; I have even had a beer with my German Professor at a local bar. The students. The students here cap off why attending Hillsdale is one of the most enjoyable and fruitful experiences of my life. They are friendly, helpful, challenging, intelligent, and always pushing me to new heights.
