    Holy Cross is expensive, there's no doubt about it, but their financial aid is wonderful. I wouldn't have been able to attend without their generous scholarship and I certainly would never dream of going to school anywhere else. The professors, the classes, the activities, the lifestyle, 'Sader Nation is THE place to be. You will have a bad case of Purple Pride before you know it and you won't regret spending a single cent.

    Holy Cross recently came in 2nd in the nation via a survey done by alumni on their college experiences. Holy Cross alum still love the school. The network is out of this world. The community at HC is so warm and welcoming, I haven't met a single person that wants to transfer yet.
