University of Holy Cross Reviews
They are very informing and family oriented. Since i started summer school everyone from my professor, to the college president have been very helpful and nice. The president of the school wrote a personal congratulatory message to me on my acceptance letter to the school! I love everything about UHC and I am glad to be a student here.
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.
My experience at the University of Holy Cross has been nothing but great. The staff is amazing and accepting of everyone. They are very helpful and are some of the sweetest people. The only issue I’ve been faced with so far attending the university is with the financial aid office. They take awhile to answer emails and to fix my balance statement when needed, but other than that, attending this school has been great.
