The campus was very nice and everyone was welcoming but the admissions office wasnt as useful as I'd hoped. The tour that was given was amazing and the schools academic and athletic programs were very appealing as well as their dorms and options for living on and or off campus.
One of the cutest campuses I toured, very much like a college. In general the campus is safe, but it is in an urban setting. The location is pretty central and it's pretty easy to get to anywhere in the twin cities. Within close proximity there are a few good restaurants and everything under the sun within a 5 mile radius. Very liberal campus with a big focus on extracurricular activities and academics. Pretty small class sizes depending on the subject and teacher, most are discussion or seminar style.
Overall the school is a good school to attend. The tuition is a little bit excessive but we do get a good education that can help open up doors for us in the future. Most of the facilities on campus are wonderful, my favorite is the security office. They make my life seem much more safe and I know I have a friend in them.
Hamline is a place that welcomes different viewpoints and opinions. Although the buildings may be old and the tuition is super high, the small class sizes, kind and understanding professors, work opportunities and quiet atmosphere allows one to thrive. I love that I can approach any professor during my availabilty to ask any questions. I also love J-term, where I can take up to 5 credits during the month of January which allows to me finish my Hamline Plan required courses without stressing myself out during the school term.
The fall 2020 acceptance rate for Hamline University is 70%. That means, out of _____ applications received in 2020 , _____ students were offered admission. The number of males who applied was _____ vs the number of females which was _____.
I'd certainly take my education much more seriously and would've finished school as soon as I could. I would've planned my education more and looked more into where I'd transfer to.
While I'm a fan of Hamline, a lot of students feel underwhelmed by it, and its liberal claims are not always supported by the president.
Hamline has a small-town feel while being placed in a larger city. Minneapolis is a short bus ride away and the campus community felt more like home, with small groups of close friends and recognizing almost everyone you meet on campus.
The community. Everyone is very accepting, open, and welcoming.
The cafeteria food was terrible. Nice facility but gross food.
The type of person that should attend this school should be open-minded, willing to put a lot of effort into their academics, and to be able to hang out with any student or faculty member.
Hamline pushes the fact they are the oldest university in Minnesota and how they are expanding. They also focus on showing how diverse they think they are. While being quite diverse, they are not nearly diverse as they think. They should puch the diversity concept some more while working to better/rebuild some of the services that enrolled students rely on.
The kind of person who shouldn't attend this school has the following traits predominant in their personality: overly-shy, lazy, uninterested, undetermined, unfocused, etc.
The size of the campus is small and is easy to navigate, and it is located near a large city, but not too near, so that it is still a part of the culture of the larger city.
I wish I had known more about financial aid.
The profs are awesome at Hamline. However, the administration can make it a little difficult when dealing with degree issues etc. I feel that this is true of most post-secondary institutions however.
Go to school, get a degree, get out sums up one part of the student body/student activities. Party Party Party would be the other half of the student body/activity.
Hamline is a pretty standard liberal arts college. Its location in the middle of the twin cities provides for many opportunities that would otherwise be missed by going to a more rural school. However, students have to be willing to take the initiative because the school admin tends to be more campus oriented. As with all liberal arts school it is expensive if you don't know what you want to do or at least what your major is going to be. Hamline does a good job of getting students out in 4 years (education being the exception at 4.5).
They are relatively accurate only because the on-campus life is dominated by sports and activity/activist groups because a large percentage of students (the silent majority if you will) go home or at least stay away from campus on the weekends.
Generally composed of students from MN with a significant portion of those from the Twin Cities metro area.
The school is split between the jocks and the typical liberal arts college activists.
