I overall enjoyed and continue to enjoy all that Holy Cross College has to offer. It is a smaller college, but that is not synonymous with being a lesser college. We are a close knit family and everyone around campus (be it student, faculty, or staff) knows each other appreciates each other. Being a small campus allows Holy Cross to achieve an experience that even Notre Dame does not have. The students and Professors are able to develop a relationship with each other. People are known by name at Holy Cross and they are remembered. As a student there, I have grown to know so many unique individuals beyond my class mates or Professors. This is the point the Holy Cross drives at and hits home own. We are not just a college at Holy Cross, we are a close knit diverse family all striving to help each other. There is no other university like it!

Holy Cross for me is the best school. It offers everything I need for my major. Even if campus is a little small, thats a good thing by the time you graduate you know everyone. The professors work really hard to give the most one on one time that is possible. I couldn't ask for a better school!
Holy Cross College offers each and every one of its students an experience unmatched to any other. With round table discussions that make classes engaging, students are given the one on one attention from their professors in order to better understand the material being taught. Outside the classroom, the tri-campus community offers students opportunities to build their resumes with relevant work experience that puts the student's major into practice. Engaging campus life provides students the opportunity to make a positive impact on the school in which they attend. Holy Cross has provided me a foundation to discover my passion for graphic design and marketing and allowed me the privilege to represent the school as the Holy Cross College mascot, Basil the St. Bernard these past four years. As my time at Holy Cross dwindles down, I am left reflecting on my time here and am undoubtedly grateful for the chance to be a Holy Cross Saint.
