I love Hood College! Overall, the students, teachers, and staff are very warm and welcoming. There is not as much activity on campus as you would see in bigger schools, but this is not a priority for me personally. My favorite part about Hood is their small class sizes. My largest class last semester had maybe thirty students! This really allows the student to learn to the best of their ability. All of the professors I have had really care about their students, and will even provide opportunities for you off campus. My advisor is also incredible! As a student who works nearly full time during the semester and has a lot of restrictions to my schedule, having an advisor that remembers me, and can recall our past conversations is really important. Hood really cares about their students, and it shows!
I've been at Hood College for the past 2 years, after attending numerous other colleges such as University of Maryland College Park, University of Central Florida, Harvard University (Summer Program) and Yonsei University. By far, Hood has been my favorite college experience.
The college is relatively small compared to nearby campuses. I can reliably walk from one corner of Hood's campus to the other in 10 minutes, and it's amazingly close to the downtown Frederick area nearby. For commuters, there is ample parking both on-campus and on the streets around campus.
This school is designed for commuters looking for the level of education found at large residential colleges. There is one residential building on Hood's campus, but it does not hold many people and tends to be reserved for out-of-state students. There is a small dining hall and campus center, with couches for socializing (and sometimes sleeping) and a bookstore.
The education (at least in the Business Department, where I spend most of my time) is fantastic. With high school like class sizes of 20-30 people, the professors here make it a point to get to know you. The professors are also very experienced in their respective fields, and often bring that experience into the classroom. Oh, and have I mentioned that we have a classroom that doubles as a stock trading room?
If you live with your parents or in your own apartment and want a hands-on education, this commuter school is for you.
Hood college is awesome. We have small classes size which make us learn more in class. The teachers are always available to helpduring class or after class. The campus is great and safe. It is a small community where everyone interact with each other. Hood college is the best!

At Hood College I have gained all the benefits of a liberal arts education at a highly diverse and well respected institution. The small class sizes here increase both the amount of class participation and the availability of our instructors. Through the care and dedication of my professors I have learned the skills of critical thinking, and honed my writing skills to a collegiate level. I have found a special place in the Hood College community where faculty and students are working together to make the world and the community a better place. I know that my time at Hood has properly prepared me for graduate school which is the next step in my academic career. In addition to these academic benefits, I have made countless friends and connections that I will continue to treasure long after I have graduated.
Hood College is a small, liberal arts college where the student is deemed the most important aspect of the classroom; class sizes never exceed 25 thus, students are able to get individual help in the classroom as well as outside of classtime.
The worst thing about my school has to be the cost. That is the only thing I can think that I don't like about it.
Hood, being a liberal arts college, is known best for it's excellent music, language, law, and biology programs. There is a large amount of biology students who go on to work at Fort Detrick, which is right down the road. It used to be an all women's college until it went co-ed about six years ago. Also, our college is the location of "one of the most haunted places in maryland" : Broadbeck Music Hall.
Hood is a wonderful school. They helped alot with my learning disability. They helped me find myself wanting to finish school and get my degree. Giving up was never an issue at this school. They pushed me to try my hardest. I feel like they are my second home. The professors and students are a great positive group of people. The atmosphere at Hood is an outgoing, clean, positive, and caring school. Academics are number one for students and not sports; Sports are second. When I need help with any academic paper, aid assist is there on campus to help.
A person who does not like a small background and is not open to diversity. Hood is a small college on a nice campus with many different cultures and backgrounds.
My classmates, who are passionate about learning, come from diverse backgrounds and ethnic groups, are open-minded, gregarious, studious, introverted, extroverted, conscientious, tall, short, and are apprehensive about their future and the job market.
The kind of person that should attend Hood College is someone who is open to change and diffrences. The campus at Hood College has so much diversity it is very delighting t is nice to be open to many people. Also if one would like to attend Hood College it would be very benificial if they were friendly beacuse everyone on the Hood College campus is friendly and we are famous for our "Hood Hello".
The prestige of the college. Its is much tougher than most colleges and is a private school.
The unity on the campus. When one person hurts, we all hurt. The campus staff, faculty and students really work together for the good of the campus community as a whole.
THE ANOUNT OF WRITING ASSIGNMENTS.)
The most frustrating thing about my school is that it does not get enough credit, where credit is do. When I tell people I go to Hood, they look at me as if I have eight heads. People do not know that Hood is such an academically wonderful school. I hate how people judge the school by its name and do not take it seriously. I put a lot of research into finding a college that was right for me and if everyone would do that, Hood would be more respected and a well-known College.
The classes are not too bad. I feel as though I am learning a significant amount. The coastal studies semester I took was probably one of the best opportunities I've had in college.
That everyone there is very smart. It is actually true because no one is dumb in my opinion
