Alumni Testimonial



I chose Hood College because the moment I stepped on campus I was welcomed like family. Everyone here wants to see you succeed. I liked the opportunities professionally on and off-campus. The professors had on-campus research projects where I could get hands-on experience and the career center connected me with my dream internship at the Baltimore Aquarium. Entering into Hood, I wish I would have known how available our student success center is. The staff there are some of the friendliest people I have ever met and really pushed me to succeed at Hood. Would have saved me a lot of long nights in the library! The diversity of campus activities paired with our small student body really helped me to grow as a person. I was able to compete as a soccer player and a track athlete, participate in community service at the animal shelter, intern with the Baltimore Aquarium and Maryland Zoo, all while maintaining a good academic record and still having time for friends. The support services and family atmosphere on campus really help you to explore who you are academically and socially.
