Our average class size is about 17, so the teachers and students form a close relationship with eachother and the students can receive individual help. Also, student looking for a large Greek-life community should not come to Hood either. Although there is talk about starting some greek-life eventually, it is not a part of our community now. Other than that, our campus is open to any type of student!

If you like constant noise of thousands of people and class sizes of over 30, this isnt the college for you. Everything is close together and in small, manageable areas perfect for a small community. Peace and quiet can be achieved on demand, and the hectic urban environment is not evident here. People here have close relationships with few, not little connections with a alot of people which makes it so close-knit.

I don't think that an individual who enjoys partying all the time, or socializing constantly throughout the weekend, would particularly fit in here at Hood. The college also does not have a football team and the sports games are never fully attended. Overall, I think someone who is looking for that "frat" or sorority experience would be disappointed.


People that are here to party normally don't last long at Hood. After 2 citations (for alcohol) you're kicked off campus, and yes they do let your parents know. Also if you fail any of your classes, you will lose your scholarship money.
