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.

University of Holy Cross is a small private university that truly carries out the mission of the school; educating the heart and mind of students. The small class setting allows students to have personalized attention from professors.

The University of Holy Cross, just became a University one year ago, formerly Holy Cross College; so an athletic department and party life is listed as an area for growth. There are several other activities and spiritual reflections for releasing stress.

Under the Leadership of the new President Dr. Landry, the university continuously receive media attention for outstanding knowledge, scores and development in programs such as Nursing, Education and Radiology.
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.
