Degree: Fine Arts
Graduation Year: 2014

The College of the Holy Cross was a wonderful environment to pursue my BA. The small college allowed for close relationships with faculty and classmates. The coursework was rigorous, but often relevant to current issues so as to prepare students for careers after graduation. The Jesuit values are present in the education, though not imposed upon students. Rather, the environment encourages you to be a "man or woman for others". Upon graduating I felt prepared to succeed, but also confident that I could choose a path which contributes positively to my community.

Small class sizes mean a lot of attention from professors. That also means you're expected to show up to class and participate in discussions. You'll get a high quality education across the board. Private school means significant student loans so have a financial plan in place when you decide what school to attend.

Holy Cross provided me with the most incredible academic education, while harboring my growth as an individual. The professors were extremely knowledgable and the classes were thought provoking. If I had to do it over again, there is no doubt in my mind that I would choose Holy Cross.

Holy Cross is a great fit for those looking to feel like they belong on campus. The class sizes are small, the teachers are attentive and available and the plethora of student activities and organizations truly means there is something for everyone.

Degree: Biology
Graduation Year: 2008

Excellent liberal arts college that only teaches undergraduate students. All classes are taught by professors and not teaching assistants. Most classes are under 20 students so you get to know your professors and classmates.

Small class sizes, so you get a lot of personal attention. This is a school that requires you actually attend classes.

Great program; the professors are all invested in their students' success. It's a diverse staff with a great range of course offerings. This is a school where attending your classes is a must, and as a professional in higher education, that's something I see far too little.

Tell us about your college experience.

I transferred into my undergraduate institution, and so I knew that it would be a better fit than where I was coming from. While the academic and career aspects of my institution were fine, what really stood out for me was the outside-of-the-classroom experiences that made my undergraduate experience "Fantastic."

Would you get the same degree if you could start over?

No, I would have chosen a degree that was more tangible and applicable to the "real world" and less liberal arts based.

What advice can you offer other students?

Don't take out student loans - there are enough places where if you have the grades and the extracurriculars you can get scholarships. The student loan payments are not worth it in the end - they set you back at least a decade in comparison to your peer-college graduates who don't have loans.
