Hastings College is an institution that really pushes towards positivity, support, family and community. So far in my time, I would not change one thing. I love getting involved with all of the on-campus activities they out on throughout the year, such as: campus volleyball/basketball games, Greek life events, college BINGO nights in the cafeteria and so many more activities. Another thing I love is the small class sizes. You really get to know your professor and the other students. The professors are all so kind, smart and helpful; they are willing to help you with whatever you need at any time. I would 100% recommend Hastings College to anyone preparing for college decisions.

I enjoy Hastings Public Schools. I feel preprared for college and the real world. They hold us to good expectations and offer challenging classes. They put a lot of work in to help us with preparing for college and applying to scholarships. I wish we had longer for lunch time but that is a minor detail. Overall, I really enjoy the school and teachers. Many honors teachers truly care about their students.
Our experience with Hastings Senior High School has been a great one! Academically the school is right on track and the communication between all parties is wonderful. The teachers and administration are superior. The school offers many extracurricular activities...far more than other local public schools. The community is proud of the high school and sponsors many activities. I am very happy I attended this school
