Hollins University says that everyone is approachable and friendly, and that the staff is there to help you reach your true potential, but in truth, it isn't, and they aren't. In all of my years traveling from school to school in high school, Hollins is the first place where I haven't been able to find someone who is true, selfless, and genuinely friendly. The teachers- who should matter the most- are excellent. The admissions staff? Top notch. But when it comes to Res Life, Financial Aid, or even management staff, prepare to meet some of the most self absorbed, money oriented,
screw you over with a smile on their face
group of people in Virginia.

The students are snooty, and if you're not willing to completely lose EVERY one of your beliefs and conform to what they say is right, they will label you as "intolerant" and "arrogant". If you're a Christian, you'd better become an atheist. If you're a republican, you'd better become a staunch Democrat. If you're white, you'd better hate yourself for it. If you're black, you'd better be prepared to experience blatant racism, and gosh-darnit, you'd better do it with a smile on your face, because no one at Hollins is racist—we just schedule 4 Black History Month events, and cancel all of them, but it's ok because we still have our basketball games scheduled! And most importantly, if you're straight, you'd better start falling in love with women—otherwise, you're an intolerant freak who deserves to be alienated.

Long story short?

I'm leaving as soon as I can.
