What Students Are Saying

3.61 Average Rating
Get to know your teachers, you will have them again and they will help you a lot.
Janisa from Los Angeles, CA
Be open to knew people. At Holy Names everyone is different. Try to make new friends, you never know if that new friend could end up being in your life forever. Also, try to get as much of your GE's done as soon as possible. Some classes, such as Biology courses, do fill up quickly. Get as much done as quickly as possible. Talk to your counselors and teachers. Communicate with them so they know how they can help you.
Rochelle Mae from San Francisco, CA
Students should develop relationships with their professors because it helps with getting help when tests and finals come around. I found it key this semester for all of my professors to know my name!
