    I absolutely love Spring Hill College! I was honestly super nervous to go to college because I live 14 hours away and I knew I wasn’t gonna know anybody there, but EVERYONE was unbelievably nice and the campus is the perfect size so it just felt like my second home. I’ve already made great friendships during my first year that I know will last a lifetime. And most of the professors truly care about their students and the education they receive. Overall, it’s just a great atmosphere and I really can’t wait to go back!

    Spring Hill College's potential to be a great college has suffocated under the weight of an administration plagued by mismanagement, miscommunication and sheer incompetence. The College's poor financial footing has resulted from such failings and has deprived students of opportunities for campus involvement and better living conditions. There is an unusual degree of negativity among the students and faculty about the College. For instance, in 2019 a professor at the College hung posters in multiple buildings around campus which openly criticized the College's striping of professor benefits while maintaining the upkeep on a golf course. He was terminated by SHC when discovered to have been the culprit. Another professor constantly berates the Administration on Facebook. Also, students wear clothes which bare the logos of other colleges, and rarely wear that with Spring Hill's name/logo. Most importantly, the lion's share of students don't share a passion for academic rigor.
    Spring Hill College is my true home! I love it here, the staff is amazing, and since it's such a small school there is ample opportunity to meet new people and feel completely safe doing it! The only thing I would improve on is the price, it's extremely expensive.
