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.

I really don’t like it at this school. First of all, the food sucks! It tastes like crap and there is a lack of nutritious option. This is just plain ridiculous, since college students should have access to healthy food when studying. Secondly, there is no social scene at campus. There are no events by clubs and there is a lack of accommodation for minor religions, such as Sikhism and Islam ( which have good representation in other colleges or universities). Hopefully, I will soon transfer to another school!!!!!
The college tour at Hood college put things in perspective for me. Everyone that I came in contact with was friendly and knowledgeable. The staff care about their alumni, current and future student's needs.

It felt as if I wasn't going to feel like a number or that I won't matter is a big concern of mine and the class size sounds about right for me. I have a sense of peace knowing that tutoring is available for no additional cost. I appreciate the labeling of the food in the cafeteria. I can eat something and not worry about food allergies while focusing on my education.
