Holy Cross College Reviews
Review Holy Cross College
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.
Holy Cross College is an interesting school. First the school itself only has 600 students, making it one of the smallest institutions in the area; however, due to the school's proximity to both Saint Mary's College and the University of Notre Dame it has the feel of a much larger college or university. Moreover, Holy Cross students have access to the immense amount of resources at Notre Dame, this aspect of the school is what drew me here. The second aspect of Holy Cross that I enjoy is the student to teacher ratio. Due to the fact that the school has a tremendously small student population, students are often in extremely small classes, sometimes with less than five students, and are therefore, expected to interact with their professors. Through this expectation, I have been able to cultivate close relationships with my professors, and ultimately it has helped me to stay on track with my education. In summary, the greatest part of the college experience is being in large environment where you are challenged, while also being able to lean vast and new fields of information, and Holy Cross offers its students the opportunity to be a part of the larger Notre Dame community while simultaneously providing a close knit classroom experience that allows students to flourish.
Overall I'd like to say that my school is a very welcoming and friendly place to be. You really get to know your fellow classmates and professors. The student to teacher ratio is great, unlike most schools where there are too many in a class, here the professors have the ability to make time to help individual students. As far as the options for classes go, they are limited. One example is there is no computer science major, which is one is the biggest and ever growing popular major in today's society. The benefit of going back here is that it is also right across from Notre Dame, and Saint Marrys, so you do have other options that you could try to squeeze into your schedule. In conclusion this school is very welcoming and friendly, however there aren't as many traditional options.
