I love this college! I made so many friends my first year, and I regularly found myself walking around campus to attend events with my peers. I see a lot of people complain that there isn't anything to do here, but there IS, you just have to read the weekly emails to see the huge list of all available activities (which many students never do). The academics and professors are also top-notch, and I always received the guidance I needed when I asked for help.

The scenery is old fashioned and kind of boring. It’s a very small school, so you get to know everyone quickly. The food was nasty on most days! The student body was very informative about events and clubs that were available for us.
What I like about Hood College is how helpful the professors are. Since majority of the class sizes don't reach over 25 students, it's easy to build relationships with fellow classmates and gain connections with the professor. They also provide a vast amount of resources to students and are extremely helpful with getting internships and job opportunities.
