    Holy Names University is a good school located in the hills of Oakland, California. The reason why this is a good school is because the institution has a small student to professor ratio which allows the students to have more of an opportunity to engage with their respective professor. Holy Names has a close knit community that makes campus residents and commuters feel like they are a part of the Holy Names (HNU) family

    This school provides a private school experience, it is small and somewhat of a close-knit community. There is a beautiful view and every part of the campus is accessible, the dormitories are quite close to the lecture halls. There are several sports teams and extracurricular activities are provided as well.

    Holy Names is small school, but one where learning is not impossible. Most of the teachers here are great and they actually want you to succeed and they will help you all you have to do is ask questions. Its not the best place to party, but its nice and cozy.

    A small school that puts students first. They know how to keep each student on the right path to attain their goals. There is a lot of support from the Professors and the Student Success Center.
