Spring Hill is a very settled but fun and beautiful college to attend. Everyone is helpful and friendly around here so it's hard to not make any friends at all. The teachers are great! They are willing to help in any way that they can and will know each of you personally as the classes are normal sized classes. We also have many opportunities of furthering our knowledge and getting help with any and all work with our tutoring program Center for Academic Excellence. All teachers are also required to have office hours daily, so If you ever want to speak with or get help from your professor he/she is only a minute away. Want to know more?

I am proud to call myself a badger. I have had my ups and downs with Spring Hill. Pod living (my dorm) was the best thing that could ever happen because that is where I found my best friends. The party's on campus are really fun and they happen every weekend. I am in love with my professors especially the psychology department. The psychology department professors are very friendly and love to chat. They generally care about me. I really enjoy on how the classroom sizes are small. The problem with Spring Hill is that because its a small campus word travels fast. People will always know about your business. I have found my home here at Spring Hill with my friends who are always there for me.


I think Spring Hill College overall is a great school. The teachers and students are very active with helping you focus in studies and the environment is very friendly. They have free tutoring, which I think is awesome. The CAE center is very helpful with helping students tidy up papers and explaining math problems. Also, the student teachers are very helpful and patient with other students.


Overall Spring Hill College is a fine school for those who wish to go into the more average or artistic majors. As for someone who wishes to go into a computer related major I would advise you to look elsewhere as the set up at SHC is not exactly the best for the computer majors. Aside from that, the small campus brings community and with it a closeness with fellow students and professors. Overall I would recommend this school to anyone aiming to attend college in the Mobile, AL area that is going into a more commonly held major.

  14. What is your overall opinion of this school?

    This school is VERY small. It's under 900 Undergrad. Almost everyone is in a sorority or a fraternity...it's not hard to get into one but the entire school and student body revolves around greek life 24/7. If drama and rivalry and reliving highschool are what you are looking for this is the school for you!

  15. What are the most popular student activities/groups?

    Very safe campus can leave your dorm room unlocked, although I never did. Basketball games are really popular here but thats about it, if you're into baseball they have a lot of games and Babe Ruth played on the field at SHC. Dating scene is luck of the draw - there is a much larger Girl to Guy ratio. If you're awake at 2AM on a tuesday you should probably go back to bed, there is nothing going on in Mobile, Alabama unless you wanna head to the Taco Bell for a chalupa. People party usually just Thursday, Friday and Saturday nights. They either party in the apartments which are on campus or head downtown to the bar scene.

    This school has some excellent professors, if you can get past the fact that you are stuck living in the bubble of Spring Hill College (all students are required to live on campus all 4 years) in Mobile, Alabama then the education is worth it...the Burke library is only a few years old and absolutely beautiful, its a great place to study.
