Hillsdale Beauty College Top Questions

What is your overall opinion of this school?


Hillsdale is very politically-minded, with its famous sponsored speaking events, publications, and Washington/International internships. And there ARE a lot of each. This should be no one's back-up school; only come here if you are 100{4a082faed443b016e84c6ea63012b481c58f64867aa2dc62fff66e22ad7dff6c} devoted to some DEEP political/historical insight. Though the math and science departments are pretty good, a desire to get into politics or economics will carry you far; Hillsdale is virtually a pipeline to Washington D.C., and very popular among Conservative circles. If you're going to include Hillsdale College on your resume, though, you'd better hope it's not a Democrat reading it! The administration is very helpful and nice. Dr. Arnn started in 2000 and very quickly helped the college get back on its feet after a pretty ugly incident here involving the past President. No one who commands your education is shy about discussing it with you. Get to know them. The college, in my opinion, is a little too small in both student body and campus size, though this may be because I come from a small high school in a small town and was ready for a change. In contrast, if you hail from a HUGE high school, you might really appreciate the closeness experienced on campus. Hillsdale, Michigan is about 10,000 people, but the town/townies are pretty indifferent about the college/students (must be the economy) unless there's a big event or guest speaker. It is not common to visit downtown which is a shame because Hillsdale, being the county seat, has some large and beautiful historic buildings. Classy storefronts and churches are not hard to find either. Take a walk around early in the year, because the rest of the time you'll most likely be too busy! School pride...There are students who understand the significance of this place, and there are those that don't. I really can't say much more than that.
