Not diverse, but is getting better year after year. Wonderful academic atmosphere. 95% of the professors are very approachable and want their students to succeed. Gorgeous campus.

Coming from a small, suburban town and a public high school, I was a little apprehensive about what my experience would be like at Holy Cross. So far, I have loved my experience here and would not trade it to go anywhere else. I am the first person to admit we are not a diverse school, and there are a lot of spoiled brats here, but most people are extremely genuine,and overall good people. The city of Worcester is ehh at best, but there are ways around it (i.e. the free shuttles to Boston and Providence). All my professors have been amazing so far, and actually take an interest in me as a person. If you are not a complete social retard, there are usually plenty of parties to go to on the weekends. One thing I will say is that if you are looking for an easy ride through college, DO NOT COME HERE! The workload is incredibly challenging and, at times, somewhat ridiculous, but is worth it (at least in my opinion).

This school is not for people from the rural midwest. Everyone is from prep school in New England. The majority of guys are here to get ahead in their career and the the girls have fake majors hoping to meet their husbands and become trophy wives. If you want to diet, this is like fat camp where everything that is supposed to be hot is cold, and firm is limp, but make sure not to get injured while exercising too much because hopping around on crutches in -10 degree weather with no elevators or level ground is no fun. The social scene is depressing. Thursday, Friday, and Saturday are living hell unless you enjoy becoming so intoxicated that you end up on a stretcher. No one here has any hobbies besides partying, partying, and more partying. Worcester is also one lame college town. If you dare to go under the bridge you enter into a rapist ghetto town. P.S. Don't forget your pepper spray or better yet, just go someone else.
