“Like any other prospective student, I was theQuite Bright
Like any other prospective student, I was the top of my class in high school. I applied to many schools and ended up choosing Holy Cross because it felt the most comfortable. Huge mistake.I will say that the staff is great. The teachers truly care about you and classes are enthralling and lively. The students though--- pretty awful (with the exception of the few really, unbelievably kind ones). Super arrogant, and most come from very privileged backgrounds. The financial aid department is atrocious-- they'd rather see you go than accommodate your financial needs. The campus police patrol on the weekends like chaperones at a middle school dance. Almost every friend I made at HC seriously considered transferring after realizing how unhappy they were with the work/life balance, 'college life' reality, and the general atmosphere of asshole-ness at Holy Cross. The career planning department is also essentially worthless in helping you to get a job after college. So you find yourself regretting, in serious student loan debt and searching for a job like any post-grad at much lesser degree schools. Please, if you're a prospective student with a bright future and a strong curiosity-- save yourself the agony and GO ELSEWHERE!
“Holy Cross is an amazing institution, especially asQuite BrightBiology
Holy Cross is an amazing institution, especially as an liberal arts college. Faculties are extremely friendly and you never feel intimidated by them. They are there to teach you and that's pretty evident on a day to day basis.I'm not going to lie but the coursework is pretty intense. If you want an easy A, don't come here. But if you truly appreciate this sense of higher education and this craving for more knowledge, this is the place to be.
Top notch professors, awesome student body, rigorous work load, fun night life, tons of student activities and clubs--everything I could ask for in my college experience. OK, Worcester isn't very pretty, but the proximity to other cities is great. Overall, I love Holy Cross.
