I believe this university is very helpful for students who might not have a lot of resources or money but are still hard working and talented individuals. The teachers and faculty try to help you as much as possible by offering opportunities and tutoring which helps other students I know. I recommend the school because of how interactive it is and how helpful it is for future employment or opportunities.
I love Hollins. The campus is stunning, the professors are often available, and the classes are usually riveting. Very small, but overall a good experience if you don't want Greek life or conservative politics. Sometimes the gossip is overwhelming, but most people are willing to help their peers and make it a safe space for others.
Hollins University. This school sold me a dream. People around campus call it a catfish because that is what it is. I am an African American first generation from out of state and I have never felt more alone in my life. There isn't much of a social life here at Hollins and there have been multiple occasions where I have felt I could die and no one would notice. To make matters worse, they don't have enough janitors and there is always hair in the showers. If they would use that money donated to hire more cleaning staff and fix the roofs that would be great. Hollins has been a home for some and a lot of LGBT but there is racism against her and some professors are passive-aggressive and insensitive. Yes, you can reach out to just about anyone by email and expect a response but with such a small campus, there is no privacy and trust in one academic person. my friend had a miscarriage and she truster her academic advisor with this information and all of her teachers found out. Just overall students, black students, first generations, please, and I beg do your research. Read the environment, look at the social life and notice not everyone is happy and alot of people transfer out for a reason.
Hollins is a private university, so at a glance it's really expensive, but the financial aid they offer makes up for that, for sure. Living on campus is mandatory for undergrads, which I'm not really the world's biggest fan of, but it does make life much more convenient. Only a few of the residence halls have air conditioning, but they all have heating, and it never gets too unbearable. Their COVID-19 response was much better than most of the student body anticipated, with an option for any student, no questions asked, to remain at home and complete their courses online for the fall semester, and on campus, the dining options have been revisited in order to give students the option to take meals to their rooms as necessary. The dining hall options aren't always the best, but if you don't like what's for dinner, you can always go to the HUB, which has things like burgers, chicken, salads, etc available during it's open hours. The professors are all very caring, and because class sizes are small, professors keep regular office hours and are generally just very easy to get ahold of when you need them.

Choose an enviroment where you will be able to be yourself creatively and mentally fullfilling. Most people only have one chance to attend a university. Make it count.
Not enough financial aid to go around, and the schooling costs were $40,000 before books. The school had a limited number of classes available and it was often difficult to get a schedual that allowed time for a part time job.
Energetic, always had an input, and interested in the classes they wree taking.
The best thing about my school is the community. I love the people here. Almost everyone is super accepting and loveable. That's what I needed when I left home. And the people here have helped me accept who I truely am.
I wish I would have known about the loans I would be receiving. I was informed that I would have a full scholarship but they failed to mention the loans involved in that "scholarship".
I brag about the small classes! I am not just a number here. All of my professors know me by name and there are professors here who invite you to their houses or eat out with their classes. There is also the BEAUTIFUL campus. I love fall here in the Roanoke Valley because the leaves are breathtaking. There is a creek nearby and the mountains in sight. Its so easy to pick up your friends and go for a hike and take pictures here. Its always maintained and kept clean too.
