What are the academics like at your school?
At Holy Cross, all of your professors will know your name. The class size usually doesn't get bigger than thirty or forty students, and in seminars they are even smaller. Students here study a lot, because all of the courses of academically demanding. Some of the professors grade harder than others, which can be difficult to manage, but they are usually very understanding if you need help outside of the class. I think Holy Cross is geared towards learning. No matter what you plan on doing after college, everyone is required to take a few core classes, which is a great foundation for anything you could possibly want to do. The liberal arts education prepares you for any vocation, which can be really helpful in the event that one of you has a midlife crisis and decides halfway through life to change careers.
