Spring Hill College Reviews
Spring Hill, like any college, has a complex list of pro's and con's, and that list is dependent on what your undergraduate degree was. The business college had some wonderful teachers, but it also struggled to find adequate professors for many of it's classes. The school is small, (1,400~ undergrad), and that being so, there's small classes for a majority of the classes. If I could do it differently, I would have attended a more specialized university and probably gotten the most, "bang for my buck". There was also a noticeable lack in diversity, which the school did not address (at least during my 4 years). Mobile as a city does not have much to offer in terms of career development/growth or extracurricular activities.
In my experience, it is difficult to get money for clubs and sports scholarships, but there have been a lot of structural changes recently. One of the changes was the outside of the chapel, while the front of the campus, near the baseball field, has something going on with plants. The food is sometimes good, but usually average or a bit less than. The people here tend to be nice, or at least decent, but there are some questionable people (like there are everywhere). I enjoy how the faculty teaches, especially in sociology and honors English classes. I wish that the roads would be repaved in certain areas, but that isn't likely to happen anytime soon. I am a commuter student, which isn't great, but I have heard from some of my friends that some of the dorms can be pretty terrible.
I think Spring Hill is an amazing school! It has given me the opportunity to explore all aspects of education through its Liberal Arts curriculum, as well as my faith in the Catholic Church. Although their science equipment and building need a serious update, I have been able to learn some useful techniques for laboratory experience. I would recommend it to anyone looking for a small school.
