What Students Are Saying

3.67 Average Rating
From touring the campus of Hood College it is easy to interpret that even though the school is smaller and less populated than your average University, this factor does nothing but work in it's favor. The small canvas in Frederick, MD is cozy but yet still spacious and offers all the essential accommodations for a student to succeed in college life such as academic counseling centers, career services, libraries, student lounge areas, etc. The fact that the school is smaller gives students a better chance to reach out to their teachers for help and feel less overwhelmed.
Stacey from Columbia, MD
Hood College focuses on the individual student by providing small class sizes and big learning opportunities. It's location in a Frederick offers the feel of a small town with the exposure to many large city amenities and access to Baltimore and Washington D.C. The campus layout allows for ease of class scheduling, studying, and recreation.
