Johns Hopkins University Reviews
I am a first year graduate student in their online Museum Studies program. So far, I love everything about Johns Hopkins University. My professors have been very attentive and answer all my questions quickly, the work is very relevant and there are so many resources to help me. JHU's admissions office and academic advisors have been in constant contact with me, making sure I was all set for the semester. My student alumni ambassador is a wonderful person who has been helping me with JHU on a personally experienced level as she has graduated from the same program. I am proud to be a part of the JHU community!
Be prepared to work hard if you want to go here. The vast majority of the students go above and beyond to succeed or else they wouldn't be here. Despite the impressive work ethic of the student body, most students still manage to have a good time on the weekends and after classes. Hopkins' reputation as being a soul sucking university really only applies to the pre-med students who stick it out until senior year, so unless you plan to be one, never fear!
This University is a very rigorous one, but the hard work definitely pays off. The study body is quite divided however, and not many students leave the library! Greek life is really good at Hopkins and not as pretentious as some other schools of the same caliber. The athletes don't socialize much with other students, but besides that I have made some great friends!
