Holy names will be more open into getting a bigger music program and offering more scholarships it would really help set the boundary in school because with it being a private institution it’s hard enough trying to afford to stay at the school
It is a school in Oakland that is very small so the most you will have in your class is like 30 people and that is only for the GE classes. It has great surrounding to where it is not too loud and is a closed off campus where when you enter there is a gate with a security guard who, if you do not have a student ID or parking pass, will check ID'S before letting people in. The food is okay but i would say try to get a letter or something to avoid paying money for a meal plan because the only thing that is really good is the breakfast, everything else isn't as good. It will also save you money if you do not have a meal plan. For the housing i have my own room as i already had 2 bad roommates though it took them until my last semester of my Sophomore year to get me my own room, it still got done in a timely manner. Usually the single rooms are taken by the upper classes (Seniors and graduate students), but you can always ask to be on the single room wait list, in which, they would let you know over the summer if a room or something has opened up.
HNU is a great community to pursue your education in. However, I wish there were more resources for advice and guidance with tuition and personal counseling. The tuition is actually pretty high for such a small school. My favorite aspect is the wide variety of classes.
This was my fall back school and it's not all that bad it's just not what I wanted from a college experience. Cool people, nice professors but super small and not a lot to do on campus. I love that classes are small so there is more one on one with the professors.

if i could go back in time i would use my time wisely , i would be more involve in ousideactivities, and i would try to avoid procrastination. The transition for every single person is different so is good to see it as a way to explore the world, in many different aspects. Its a way to demontrate yourself and others your abilities to succed in life.
My classmates are easy going and friendly for the most part; if you don't know everyone by name, u will by the end of the year.
Holy Names offers a smaller campus and class size than most universities which can be very beneficial for a lot of students. Most people learnbetter in a class sizes ranging from 15-25, which is exactly what HNU can bring to the table. Unlike these huge universities that service upwards of 10,000 students, Holy Names allows for interpersonal contact and a lot of 1 on 1 focus that nurtures a student's learing and progress. There is also a comfort level at HNU that goes along with being in a small community.
A person who is looking to be surrounding by peers of different ethnic and cultural backgrounds. Someone who takes pride in where they attend school and is open to listening to the views and opinions of others. This person should also be looking for a more intimate experience in terms of education - meaning that they would like their professors to know them and to know their professors in an effort to make the most of their education experience. It is a place where growth are encouraged and sometimes maybe even a little forced but meant for the best.
The most frustrating thing about my school is the Nursing Program. Sometimes, I just get really frustrated because I feel like it can be really hard and a lot of stress. It's easy to get in, but it is a lot harder to stay in. Sometimes, my classes seem too hard that I just get really frustrated and stressed.
Small school for social justice , every body support one another and help each other .
The best thing about my school is the amount of diverse students who come from different parts of the United States and even from different parts of the world. Holy Names University exposes you to different kinds of cultures and in doing that, you are able to grow as a person. You become aware of all the different kind of people that are in our world that you normally wouldn't be able to meet anywhere else.
I wish I had known that I could had finished all my general education classes first before deciding on a major. Instead I entered into a major that I didn't really like my freshman yer, and I was doin major required classes instead of general education classes. By sophomore year I was in the major that I loved.
