A lot of the reviews on here are accurate. Hamline is a small private liberal arts school. You can walk from one side of campus to the other in 5 minutes. It is located in midway (between minneapolis and st. paul), which is considered a sketchy neighborhood. A lot of people here are very close-minded. If they don't know you, they most likely won't talk to you. People can be very two-faced. Hamline aims for "diversity" but it's all either jocks, hipsters or liberals. Athletics here are crap. I played two years for a sports team. Coaches put too much pressure and push athletes too hard. They act like its a division 1 athletic program, but in reality we're only division 3 and we lose at almost everything. Faculty here is ok depending on the department. I've had some bad luck with professors who couldn't care less about helping their students, but I've had some professors who really connect with them. Not a lot of activities or things to do on campus, but intramural sports are fun.

My biggest complaint about this school is how much money and time I wasted my first two years here. They force you to take classes that aren't even required for your major. They call it the "Hamline Plan" and since the school is a liberal arts, they strive to make students "well-rounded" in different subjects. As a result, I had to take classes that I wasn't even interested in, which caused my bad grades and that affected my GPA. What a waste of my time and money. My last 2 years at Hamline were ridiculously hard because I had to cram all these courses in for my major in order to graduate on time!

Oh yeah and all the money that Hamline gets (funds, tuition) goes towards advertisements on diversity and creating a new building that is just full of chairs.
