Holy Cross is a small liberal arts school located in Worcester, MA. People in the New England area most likely have heard of it, but often ask, 'oh yeah, where is that?'. Worcester is not the best of college towns, although it does offer some night life and Holy Cross is a bit isolated from it because we are a gated campus on a hill overlooking the city. Holy Cross is a small school with just under 3,000 students. I often can not leave my dorm without seeing someone I know, which I enjoy. Basketball is definitely the biggest thing on campus, and there is a lot of school spirit here.
Classes are small and professors know you by name within the first week of classes. I can't say better things about the professors here, they truly want to help students and focus on them, especially since Holy Cross is only undergraduate. Students are fairly competitive, especially in the pre-medical and science programs. Academics at Holy Cross are very rigorous and that is why we only take four classes a semester, which definitely keeps students busy.
Students come from all walks of life. Most are Catholic, as it is Holy Cross! There are many different active social groups on campus that support different racial, religious, and LBGT sectors of people on campus.
