The University of Holy Cross, formerly Our Lady of Holy Cross College, is a wonderful school. When it comes to coursework they mean business! Staff is always friendly, professors are always on time, tutoring is always available at no additional cost to the student! They are also constructing dorms for students to be able to board. Overall a wonderful experience! I would definitely recommend this University to friends and family. The only thing I would want to change is the availability of different forms of financial aid for international students.

Wonderful school with great professors who help students learn and reach their full potential. The classes are small, so professors spend more time with each student. They also have a wonderful counseling center where, if you are going through hard times, you can receive free sessions. The food is not the best, but they have improved the quality of their food in the last year. They are currently building dorms and they will have residences for those people who have long commutes.
I transferred to Holy Cross after 2 years at LSU. I love how small the classes are at Holy Cross and how the entire student body feels like a family. I went from literally failing my classes at LSU to getting straight A's at Holy Cross. If you don't like big schools, Holy Cross is the place to go! The professors here really care and are invested in your future.
