I've had a rather average experience. Think of Hocking like a high school that truly cares more about athletics and filling up their own pockets than providing a decent education, provided you chose the"right one" when applying. And don't expect much, you get what you pay for, and please expect them to make sure they get every single dime, even if with financial aid, the college has to screw you over. So, unless you're going for one of the main programs here such as Culinary, Natural Resources, Equestrian, Education, and Public Safety, I suggest you look somewhere else. Another tip: RUN!

Student life is terrible, they waste the money on things that don’t directly help you. If you want to live on chicken tinders and seasoned fry’s, be treated like a guest 24/7 then sure. If there is ANY problem with your dorm, ants, shower head, missing things broken lock be ready to turn in a slip down stairs and wait and wait and wait. Turn another slip in, wait more. When “maintence” ( like 3 elderly guys ready to retire) finally comes they will jerry rig whatever it is. During room inspections be ready to have your privacy invaded, if you’re naked getting ready to shower a WOMEN on the MENS FLOORwill walk in with her own key without knocking. Her name is “Megan L. T.”
they don’t maintain landscaping... it’s pretty bad.
Staff is rude.
The dorms or are similar to the new ones at ou. That’s about all that’s good. They let people smoke black and milds. And the dorms down the road we’re evacuated because of mold.
