What is your overall opinion of this school?

I think that it’s a great school and would recommend that other students go here since it is small and quiet. Another reason that Hood College is a great school is because the professors have office hours and they are welcome to help the students with any of their problems.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Hood College is a great place to transition from living at home to becoming an independent adult. The class sizes are amazing, and I learned how to be a better person by the atmosphere and the people who attend/teach here. The sports program allowed me to create lasting friendships that I have even through today. Some of my teammates will be members in my upcoming wedding, and I'm even getting married to one!

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Hi! I was one of the 25 students involved in the recent food poisoning outbreak at Hood College. I wish I could say I was surprised that me and 24 others got food poisoning from both the dining hall and cafe here on campus... however I have several pictures of raw chicken, moldy Alfredo sauce, and cooks not changing their gloves when switching from station to station. This isn’t the first time this has happened... hell we got shut down by the health department last year because there were full Ecoli cultures in the tins of sauces for the pasta station. This school has a food sanitation issue big time, mostly because Hood hires just about anyone who has remote cooking experience. Perhaps if they paid their employees better and was overall a better work environment they wouldn’t have to be desperate for cooks and all of this could be avoided. I have a friend who works there for work study and they vow that no one should ever eat there... they stopped eating there since working there. Hood needs to fix this before word gets out... it would be a shame if the Frederick News Post got word of this.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Hood is okay for a college, the academics are challenging and it's a good place to make friends and explore but there are flaws that I know they can improve upon, one of them being that they need to do better routine maintenance on their current dormitories. The 2nd thing I could think of is they can improve the food quality at the dining hall a bit more. Academics are rigorous but worth it and many professors that I have come across are very good at communicating with students and are overall good people. I recommend attending here due to the academics which are very good and the very communicative services that the school offers, but just know every college has its own minor flaws. You will definitely need a car if you are going to get groceries that's one definite thing but overall I don't regret coming here it is worth my time.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Overall I really enjoy my time there; I chose to attend purely on the excitement and enthusiasm of the Communication Arts representative at the open house I went to (his name is Alan Goldenbach and you should ABSOLUTELY take his classes). They also have given me an opportunity to be a research assistant over the summer. However, I would caution music students: the music department is small and the practice rooms, while large, are largely neglected and I have found dead bugs on the pianos when I've gone there to practice. The door to the practice studios is sometimes left swinging on its hinges. Just a warning.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Hood is a great school for people who are looking for a small school atmosphere. Located right next to Downtown Frederick, it is a beautiful campus. It is small enough to get around campus in less than 10 minutes. The professors here are extremely easily accessible and classes are small enough that the student/teacher relationship is fantastic. Overall, although, Hood College is not widely advertised it is a great school to attend.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I love Hood. My teachers are great and there are so many nice people. Housing is nice overall and you can always find something to eat. There are so many extracurricular to par take in such as clubs and different sports teams. I play lacrosse and to see the improvement from last year to this year is crazy.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

My overall opinion about Hood College is that its a great college. Its nice and small, not alot of walking and everyone is friendly. The class sizes are small as well. You get a chance to know your professors and they get a chance to know you personally. I live in Baltimore, so its not too far away from Baltimore or Washington DC. There's also a Downtown part as well and its not too far from the college. I would recommend anybody to come to Hood College. You wont regret it.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Overall, I think Hood College is an amazing college. They should advertise and get more involved in the communities throughout Maryland because before my senior year of high school I never heard of it. Also, providing healthier, and more appetizing food would help people enjoy their time here. Other than those few things it is a great school and I believe I made a very wise decision coming here.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I really love from having the small class sizes and the professors always being adviable. There is so much to do and when there isn't something then the student is free to start the college is always open for opportunities like that. Everyone is so nice and friendly to each other it is like a world where no one can do wrong.
