Degree: History
Graduation Year: 2016
"Hood College was a wonderful small private school. The classes I took were extremely personal, with my largest class being 25 students and my smallest being 3. I loved all my professors and feel very confident with my experience from Hood to move on with my career."

"Great college, great teacher, small classes awesome programs! I really enjoyed my time at Hood, I learned a lot, love the small classroom setting and the honor code. I always felt safe, great honest community of students and great relationship with Frederick community. They helped me study abroad and gave me a great education that prepared me for grad school. I would definitely recommend this school to everyone, specially if you like smaller classroom environments, personalized education and excellence in teaching."

Lee G. - 11/30/2015
Degree: Computer Science
Graduation Year: 2012
"Class sizes are small, which is a great benefit if you learn best from a more hands on approach. To be honest, the Computer Science department feels a bit lacking when it comes to the breadth of technology you'll learn, but that may have changed, and the college does have a good amount of resources. Tuition is pretty expensive, but if you did reasonably well in high school you'll likely get a scholarship. The campus itself has changed quite a bit, and I don't feel as though it's quite as pretty as it once was, mostly because it feels more cramped. I think the Education department is still considered quite good, so if you're thinking of teaching this is a decent college to look into. Frederick city has a few rough parts here and there, but the downtown area is filled with all sorts of shopping and food opportunities, and there are several tech companies around including Thermo Fisher and SAIC. Fort Detrick also has contracts with several companies that work on-site. A lot of people aren't aware of Frederick's job growth, but I highly recommend looking into what you can get for internships early on. Depending on your major, your internship experience during college might be far more important than your time actually taking classes at Hood."
