HSC is complete Hype! An all Male College in Virginia. This school is the 3rd choice for rich white students. In other words the students here really wanted to go to UVA, Georgia, Alabama - yet didn't have the grades to really go to college. HSC provides rich kids with a place to go and fill their heads with how great the school really is. You won't hear many HSC students bash this college - thats because they think it is a top notch institution because if they ever came to terms with how poor of an education you receive they just wouldn't feel good about themselves.

HSC also has this bogus Honor Code. Yet I cannot tell you how many times students would cheat.

Safety for some students are also a concern. No you won't find outsiders here but there is always a fight somewhere on the weekends. If you don't want to play D3 sports or join a Frat then this is not for you.

Also this is probably one of the most racist/sexist schools in the country. Rebel Flags are in almost everyother room. Women are treated as nothing more than a piece of @$$. I can't recall the number of times I have heard a HSC student refer to a black person as a N-word.

Unfortunately I could not transfer to another school that I thought would be better. I would have left after the first week if I could have.

30K a year to attend this school is a complete waste.
