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.

The close community atmosphere. It is a school that feels like home, and is a small campus so you get more attention with professors and they have more time to help you in each class. The atmosphere is friendly and inviting, its right in Frederick so shopping areas are not far away and you can walk to a few stores and restaruants if you please. The campus is beautiful and neatly constructed, friendly campus overall.

Relatively small, private liberal arts college, with outstanding tradition and faculty-student-administration interpersonal interaction. Academics in small classes, at nearby resources, and with life/study skills support are outstanding. Friendly, student-centered environment. A former all-women's college, current student population is ~80% women. NCAA Division III sports. Very nice town with historic immigration and colonial heritage. Great combo of cosmopolitan and fresh air. Located ~1 hour from Baltimore, <2 hours from Washington, DC, <1 hour from mountains and civil war sites. School has excellent reputation nationwide, highly accredited.

Because Hood was an all-girls' school up until a few years ago, a lot of people poke-fun at Hood and call it a "lesbian college.? It?s a silly stereotype that will probably always surround anyone who goes there and doesn't bother me. Beyond that, Hood's known for being a small, liberal arts college.

Daniel

Hood would be best-known for being one of the last all-women's Colleges in America. Hood became a co-ed college only 11 years ago, with men living on campus 5 years ago. The most common perception of Hood is still that it is an all-women's college to those unfamiliar with the area.
