Hollins University Reviews
Some professors are amazing and will push you to apply for internships, study abroad opportunities, and help you build your resume. Faculty are supportive and have your best interests at heart. Classes could be more organized and challenging on the whole. Professors either give too much or no homework, and assignments are mainly centered on reading and discussions.
But the saddest thing about Hollins is how fast gossip spreads. Students are petty and everyone knows everything. People constantly complain about how bad the food is, but it's not terrible most of the time.
