What Students Are Saying

3.00 Average Rating
A small, four year, liberal arts college dedicated to the mission of the Order of the Holy Cross Brothers. The Brothers actively pursue to educate the hearts and minds of it's scholars attending both young and old. This atmosphere provides a strong foundation for a will to learn, the will of service to others, and a strong faith in God.
Vincent from South Bend, IN
The professors at Holy Cross College are extraordinarily better at guiding and motivating their students than any I have ever experienced. The best choice I have made as a young adult would be choosing to give Holy Cross College a chance. I am exceedingly grateful for the time I have spent under the tutelage of such great minds as those found at Holy Cross College.
