Hollins University Reviews
Hollins is a wonderful environment to live and learn in! There is a real sense of community; the history and quirkiness of the school only add to the charm. While the faculty and staff are incredibly caring and attentive. There are also a ton of opportunities on and off campus. Roanoke is a great location in the heart of the Blue Ridge Mountains which provides endless hiking trails and outdoor areas to explore, and downtown is just a quick drive from campus as well, there really is something for everyone. The number of clubs, organizations, and activities on campus is incredible considering the schools size. Academically the student to teacher ratio is awesome, I love knowing all my Professors personally and having them know me. Professors really seem to care about your thoughts and want you to be involved in class. They will really go out of their way in order to insure you have the best experience possible.
Hollins was the perfect fit for me because of how small and academically focused the school is. Hollins is also very accommodating, especially in situations that are completely out of your control. I really feel Hollins has helped me become a better version of myself!
Hollins is a very small university and I think that it is better in some majors than others. For instance, their creative writing, dance and theater programs are amazinggg. But they are slacking in other areas such as business. Because the school is so small and does not offer much on campus, they do really well with making sure students get really good internships and give them places to stay oo which is amazing. I did an internship in NYC and I stayed on 34th St in Manhattan for no extra cost. They also have AMAZING study abroad program. I studied in London for a semester and it was NO extra cost. They make sure you have a place to stay and can provide you with an internship there too. These are the small things that I think really make Hollins a great university because these opportunities are not readily available at many other colleges.
