What is your overall opinion of this school?

Hollins University is really one of the best university. I love the environment and scenarios are gorgeous. There are a lot of campus activities going on the campus and students are super friendly. Taking about the academics, we can see the professors putting a lot of their efforts which motivates students to study too. The best thing about the academics is clarity in knowledge.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Hollins is a great school! One thing I cavalier most about Hollins is the academics. That one one one time with your professor is so crucial and I didn’t realize that until I arrived here. The class sizes are relatively small which I love because it enables these one on one times to take place.The social scene is great very easy to make friends and you’ll make them quickly. Traditions are also a pretty big deal it’s my favorite part about the school!

What is your overall opinion of this school?

If there is one thing that one could take away from Hollins, it would be the variety of resources available- academically, professionally, personally, on-campus or off-campus. I have greatly appreciated Hollins University for its small size, which fostered a communal atmosphere that is rare on public universities, as well as the academic, professional and personal opportunities it has provided for me over the past four years. It is not a perfect school, but its student body is passionate and devoted to change and reform that I greatly admire.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Hollins University has a large need to change, in almost every corner. Half the dorms are falling apart and they chose to spend $7 million on new housing while ignoring health risks in current housing. Social climate is almost always tense, food sucks, but academics are pretty good. Not that Administration wants to admit people are here for education anyway.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I absolutely love this school! The moment I stepped on campus for a tour, I knew this was the place for me. The students and professors here are amazingly kind and helpful. The food is buffet style and actually quite good! Plus there’s plenty of variety, including a salad bar and vegan bar always available. There’s also a grill downstairs where you can get anything MTO. The classes are small - a max of 25 students as a first year, and as few as 6 students a class in upper level classes. There’s plenty of sports here, including a riding program. The campus is small, and absolutely beautiful. There’s tons of events constantly occurring on campus, and there’s tons of things to do off campus as well. I honestly couldn’t imagine myself anywhere else!

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Hollins is very open and accepting to different kinds of people from different backgrounds. They offer opportunities to connect to the community very often and value each student's wellbeing. It's very easy to get help with anything ranging from academics to personal issues, and professors are open to collaborating with students to help them in any way they can. It's a very safe place that makes me feel comfortable walking about at any time, and talking to anyone I feel like talking to. Comfort and managing comfort zones while still stepping outside of them is taken seriously here.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I think that Hollins University is an amazing opportunity for students looking for an institution of higher learning! There are a number of majors, minors, certificates, and overall opportunities for anything someone may be interested in. I absolutely love the theatre program and the inclusivity it holds. As a program in the Top 10 for college theatre, it doesn't act like one that would be selective in who it allows to perform and work with. That is also essentially how the school is. It opens up opportunities for it's students to do things that they may not get the chance to do in other schools. I really love Hollins University and the opportunities it has for it's students.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Hollins is a place where everyone can find something to do. You can join a literary journal, be part of our cultural engagement department, go to parties and school events, and still make time to finish all your projects and homework on time. It is a place where we can engage with issues that are present there and take more steps to address them in an open space.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

It is a great school that is great for women looking for personalization. The professors, coaches, and counselors are very understanding and are always willing to be flexible to help you no matter what situation you may be in. Additionally, Hollins grants students with several opportunities for everyone, ranging from sports like horseback riding to study abroad and amazing internships to social events for everyone with wide ranges of interests. My favorite part of the school besides the sports and clubs I will partake in is the small class sizes that allow students to get a thorough and excellent education.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Hollins University is a small campus of approximately 200 female students. Not only is Hollins a private institution, but it is also private in the sense that it’s secluded and hidden from the interstate. The campus is absolutely beautiful and extremely welcoming. The dorm size is larger than most other colleges. Overall, Hollins is a spectacular campus. The aspect of Hollins that I like the most is the amazing stories that alumni have. With the J term, there are many different chances to travel, study abroad, and intern across the world. There was one story that resonated with me: One student, I will call her Student A, was doing independent studies in London. Her mother’s credit card, which was joined to hers, had to be terminated, so she had no money in a completely different country. She went to a Hollins alumni, explained her situation, and Hollins gave her a lump sum of money and later charged it to her account. That story resonated with me because one of my factors when choosing a college was that I did not want to be only a number. The Hollins alumni remembered the student and helped her out the best way she could, which is the type of people I want to know from my college. Hollins does everything it can for its students and that tight-knit community is something I want to be a part of.
