Hood College Top Questions

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


Not very accomadating to transfer and commuters. As someone who qualifies as both I often feel left out and misinformed. I feel like I am expected to know how the college runs just because I have college experience and my age. Each school is run differently and I wish that the orientation was more informative about the programs of study and what we can expect from the courses offered. The College catalog lists a lot of courses that have not been offered in years according to not just the students, but the professors themselfs.


I do not really dislike anything about Hood College. Of course tuition is expensive, but that will be anywhere; at least for me.


To be completely honest, I love everything about my college. I do not have anything negative to say about Hood College. The location is not too far from home, but yet, its not too close either. The students are very friendly, as well as the teachers. The sports teams are invigorating and fun, especially the long bus rides that we take every week. To speak on the food, it is delicious; it is better than any other cafeteria food that I have tried- and there is a ton of variety. All in all, Hood College is great. I cannot complain.


I would say that the worst thing about Hood College would be the food, which is often gross and unappealing. The kitchen has been known not to listen to people with allergic needs (they've often served gluten to my friend who can't eat it), and they just generally don't seem to really care about what they're feeding their students. It's a step up from a high school cafeteria, but not by much.


The worst thing about my school is the lack of school spirit. We do not have a football team so our school spirit is low and do not often take a lot of pride in the college that we attend.


The worst thing about the school is the cost. It is expensive because it is private.


The tution is very exspenive. I believe if the tution was to be lowered in a resonable manner, more students would apply to the college because of it's high graduation rate and the numerous scholarships offered to the students.


Hands down I believe that the food is the worst thing about Hood College. While the administrrtion likes to say, "its not mom's home cooking, but you can alway find something", its no comfort to my growling stomach. I'm still hugry after lunch three days a week sometimes. And, because of unsanitary practices people have gotten food poisoning from a number of items.


The worst thing about my school is the price. Being a private school, the tuition is relatively high. However, our financial aid office really helps you find the money so it can be affordable and the amazing education students receive here makes it well worth it! My advice is to not let the price discourage you.


I would consider the athletic department the worst because the gym is almost non-existent and is in very bad shape.


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.


The worst aspect of Hood College is the overall cost of tuition and books. Personally, I receive financial aid from the school but it is not enough to cover the entirety of my need. I do not have any personal funds to draw upon in order to pay for college and the money involved in paying what is left of my tuition and buying textbooks is a strain on my resources and the resources of my family.


I really don't think that there is anything inherently bad about my school. Sure, there are things that upset me, but these seem to be due to more personal reasons than anything else. It's not necessarily the school's fault.


The cost of the school is extremely large. A lot of what you are paying it seems like it does not have to be that high.


Hood College's location would probably be the worst thing about the school. The number of places to go and things to do off campus are limited.


The worst thing about Hood College would have to be that they spend so much money on promoting the college, instead of actually fixing current buildings, like the residential dorms, and the price to attend is outrageous, but then again so are most colleges. Other than that, the college is great.


Parking at Hood College as a commuter is a pain. I park off campus and walk but it isn't that bad unless it's raining.


Their bulidings are very old.




Nothing. There are too many positives to remember the negatives.


The worst thing about my college is signing up for classes. When it comes time to schedule classes for the next semester you literally have to stay up until midnight when the registration opens, sign in and pick your classes as fast as you can. Sometimes you still get waitlisted for a class and sometimes it is a core requirement.


the facilities and dorms need to be brought up to date, but there getting there.


The fact that there is not enough school spirit. Hood does not have the same fun activites and special guests other schools do. I do not have a social life within Hood college. All of my extracuricular activies happen outside of the Hood College community.


The small community atmosphere of the school made it a den of gossip at times.


The small size sometimes does not allow students to get all of the courses they want in a given semester. The school sometimes only offers one or two sections of a course when more sections are needed.


Sometimes its size is a problem, that and the need to expand.


The dinning. The school has gone with a new dinning system that sends them frozen "gormet" meals to make. Sometimes they're ok, but other times it just runs right through you. Luckily there is the choice of the Blazer, where you can get food to order, and other restaraunts off campus that have amazing food. You just have to know whats good in the dinning hall, and where to go on an off day in the food department.


I don't like that the school costs so much and seems like all they want is my money because they seem to want to charge the students for little things that seem so uneccessary.


WAY Too liberal. The school thinks it's diverse and accepting but they really don't like conservatives or Christians. I have never felt so hated for my moral views in my life. Also the school picks the wrong things to spend money on like stadium bleachers instead of new computers in the dorms!


the dorms. it is time for them to be updated
