Hollins University Top Questions

What do you consider the worst thing about your school? Why?


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.


There really isn't anything I absolutely hate at Hollins University. If i must choose then I pick the food. The food on campus is tolerable like at most other colleges and campus is surrounded by restaraunts and fast food places. I honestly can't think of anything really bad.


Haven't found anything wrong with it yet.


The worst thing about my school is the cost. At 37,000 dollars a year, even with financial aid and scholarships, it's still a high bill to face.


I wish that the meal plan wasn't mandatory for those who live on campus. The meals provide just enough energy to get by for a couple of hours. I think the Financial Aid office could be more helpful too and specific with their help. They need to provide more of an outlet for those of us who need more direction on scholarships and whatnot.


It is very pricey. I feel like most of the scholarships are for incoming students and that they are used to draw students in without help for the following years. The financial aid dept is a little unorganized and the whole process has been stressful.


The food and bathroom facilities.


The tuition because it is extremely high and for it to be so high our school should have new dorms, and not old ones. No maintenance problems and better food.


Aside from the food? The difficulty of some of the courses. Hollins is a lot tougher than you think it would be.


How racially homogenous the campus is - all of the students of one race sit together.


I feel that the honor system is too lenient -- tests are student proctored. I hate how it's dead on the weekends. If you don't have a car, it's hard to get around.


If this question would have been asked of me my freshman year I would have said the food but the dining service has increased greatly in quality since then so there isn't really anything I would change or think is the WORST.


The worst thing about Hollins is probably the fact that each year your finicial aid package drops, and it becomes hard to find ways to pay for it.


How dead the campus is on the weekends. If there were more activities both on and off of campus then I think it would attract more students during the weekends. The weekends feel like they last longer than they actually do.
