Holy Cross College Reviews
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!
This college is very small. Think of it as another high school, everyone knows everyone even if just by face. This is definitely a PWI but it is a safe place for minorities. The professors want the students to succeed and they are dedicated to offering the help that is needed. The University of Notre Dame and Saint Marys College are part of a tri-campus with HCC so you can take classes at all three. Overall, this school could improve but it is relatively new, only starting off in 1996. It will only get better and better.
Holy Cross is a great school. The campus is small but welcoming. It's very easy to navigate your classes. I am apart of an athletic team and having teammates to lean back on is very helpful. The professors are there to help when you need it. Small class size, able to ask questions in class versus if you go to a large school and you are in a lecture with 200 students. The tri-campus is very unique here as well. There are a lot of things to do around the city as well.
