| Do not go to Spring Hill if you want a college experience. This is like high school all over again. You meet the same people everyday and do the same ting every day. A better way to describe this hell hole of a school is that its a boarding school. The only good thing about this school is that it's pretty. I have 2 good professors and the rest are absolute crap. The math dept. is pathetic. You have to do online notes and homework and the Nursing Dept. here is a joke. If you want to become a nurse skip this school. It is know to have a horrible nursing program. Night life is a joke all the bars in downtown mobile are a joke and you just waste a ton of money for cover charges. Another thing is that this school is very expensive even with a scholarship you have to pay abot 43 thousand dollars to go her with out a scholarship and i got the biggest scholarship of 25,000 and my parents are literally paying out the wazoo for me to go to this shit hole. When you are a senior you get to the in the good ole apartments. They are crap. One is condemned thanks to the negligence of the staff. If you decide to go here, you won't be seeing me because Im transferring the hell out of here to Alabama or LSU. |

| The thing about this school is that you have to fit the mold. I know this because I did my freshman year. I wore the right clothes and talked to the right people. I was out drinking every weekend and made a great group of friends. However, after that year I was too busy to stay in the social light and it seemed like all my friends were too. The problem was that I don't have enough time to go out and keep up with new people as I was trying to work full time and stay in school full time as well. Since this school is so small everyone already knows everything about you. It is difficult to meet new faces and feel welcome because I know they know the things I wish they didn't--perhaps during my party period. How awkward.|
Another thing is that I was told that the gym renovation would be complete by the time I started school back in 2010. It has not been touched. Don't let them fool you. The landscaping will always be maintained and beautiful but the mold in the apartment buildings and dorms will not be addressed.
The nursing program was in danger back in 2011. Many nurses changed their major--- and transferred although the school discouraged it. The teacher who exposed this was fired almost immediately. The business program was in danger of being discredited, and I know a few students who transferred because of that.
The food in the caf is mostly only great when they know prospective students are touring the campus and also during Family Weekend. I do have to say that my freshman year had pretty good food, but it went down hill from there.
The athletics are desperate are creating new teams (track and cross country) to bring in more people and of course, money. The basketball team brings in the money so they get better equipment while the baseball team is neglected.
Parties are not what they used to be. All the people who graduated before me are disappointed in that fact.
The standards for getting into the school has gone down. That's what happens when a school gets desperate. This must be why the crime on campus has gotten so bad. The students from around here are probably letting their nonstudent friends in to steal the phones and laptops. It is getting to be ridiculous here.Attending this school is like buying an ugly brand name purse. You just hope you can walk away looking good from the logo because you paid for it. It probably wasn't practical or worth it, but the name is still there.

| Do not come to this school unless you are white, southern, and rich. Those are the kind of people that you will run into on campus.The majority of the students are Greek, and if you are not there will be nothing for you to do whether it is on campus or off campus. If you are looking for a college experience, forget about SHC. You will be attending high school all over again. Rumors run rampant and everyone is more concerned with the business others than their own boring lives. Everyone knows everyone, and you will not be able to get away from that whether is be on campus or downtown. There are no clubs, no sports that are worth watching, with the exception of the baseball team. Nightlife is a joke. People wander around the senior apartments and just let themselves in. You will see the same people every night at the same bars on Thursday nights. As for the nursing program, it is a joke. SHC nursing students are oftentimes looked down upon by other schools nursing students for their incompetence during clinicals. Overall I wasted a lot of time and money at Spring Hill, and I will be transferring as soon as possible. One good thing I can say about this school is that the majority of the faculty have been more than helpful and most of them are very knowledgeable and qualified in their field. |
