Whenever I tell people that I go to HolySep 13 2011English
Whenever I tell people that I go to Holy Cross, they think that I'm really smart and responsible, and they congratulate me. I think HC is fine in every way. It's located in a college town so I have many resources for anything I want to do. The only thing wrong here is that not every desired major is offered. For example, if I wanted to major in Neuroscience, I would have to create the major, which is possible here, or do a Biopsychology concentration, which is very hard to try getting into because of its competitiveness.
