What Students Are Saying

3.67 Average Rating
Classes are very tough but the teachers will work with you.
Austin from Williamsport, MD
The teachers are amazing at their fields but there are high expectations and many students don't graduate within four years. I have to take classes over the summer and winter breaks and I am still not sure if I'll graduate on time.
Jillian from Germantown, MD
Hood is very strong in academics and holds their students to high standards.
T'Mera from Landover, MD
There is a lot of work that goes into every major and sometimes its overwhelming. However, the classes are challenging in a positive way and make sure you can't just cruise your way through college.
Megan from Baltimore, MD
According to US news under the education articles, Hood ranks number 26 out of 100 in the north of best schools to attend. That is a very good number given the number of Ivy Leagues located in the North. Almost every Hood College student, and a large number of the professors will tell you, Any degree from Hood promises success.
Alaina from Lincoln University, PA
Classes are what you make of them. All levels of educational opportunity are available, from basic to honors, each with their own level of academic expectations.
OLIVIA from Pompton Plains, NJ
Tons of classes to choose from, but a lot of the classes require you to be hard working and not slack.
Cory from Seven Valleys, PA
I have heard nothing but prestige about the academic aspect of Hood College. My high school teachers, friends, bosses, and people who I've merely just run into a conversation with talk very highly of Hood college and all the internships, research, and assistance they offer when helping their students reach their career goals.
