  • Dec-14-2009 I am a current student here

    Holy Cross Students literally refer to the college life here as Life on the Hill. In reality it is like you are separated from the outside community in a positive way. The campus is small so you see familiar faces frequently; however, if you ever need time to yourself there are thousands of creative study places you can find. Ultimately, Holy Cross is the place the be if your looking for a place where you can experience simple diversity but not feel overwhelmed.

    Holy Cross, although homogeneous, does not seem to be cliquey. Students are friendly, open, and willing to help each other out. The campus atmosphere is amazing- warm and focused. HC students really seem to be able to achieve the perfect balance between academics and social life, something that would make anyone enjoy being where they are. Student's Bleed Purple meaning school spirit is high, and everyone is proud to come from Holy Cross, with a 95% graduation rate to prove it.

    Although the school is very small, if that is the kind of school you want, then go for it. It seems like a pretty close-knit college community, and very welcoming.
