I am a rising sophomore at the Hopkins Whiting School of Engineering majoring in engineering and computer science. I had a great freshman year despite finishing with 44 credits in some very challenging courses. Professors not TA's taught my courses and they as well as their TA's did a great job of being accessible when I needed assistance. Hopkins offers additonal tutoring and review sessions which were very helpful. The classes were small and intimate and I felt comfortable and engaged and the content was right on target with my expectations. I was also able to obtain a research assistant position as a freshman and was able to meet directly with the department chair which was thrilling. Johns Hopkins has met and exceeded my expectations. I have found the environment to be challenging but collaborative and not competitive at all. Even with the pandemic, my freshman year turned out to be a great one THANKS to Johns Hopkins!

Yes, Hopkins is stressful (yay stress culture) and yes, it has its issues. However, I feel as thought Hopkins truly excelled in the areas that matter to me. I feel like there are genuinely some many different types of people that making friends shouldn't be hard for everyone, that professors are helpful and willing to work with you, and that there is plenty of research!
The real key to success here, as in any other school, is to do your work early, reach out to teachers and TAs and chill out!
At Hopkins your experience is truly what you make it.
My online learning experience has been great with little or no disruption from my in-person coursework. The professors, TA's and Hopkins administration have been wonderful, understanding, compassionate and patient due to COVID-19. Being at Hopkins online and in-person have both been a great experience!
