    The location is pretty good. This in turn makes the social life pretty dull and limits you to small town Geneva and the lake. ...Continue reading

  • Overall school rating 1/5
    Transferred out after a miserable first year. If you are not from New England or your parents are not incredibly wealthy you will find the people here snarky, phony and incredibly self centered. I have never met a group of kids so oblivious to real life and the actually hardships the rest of the nation goes through. Place is ridiculous. But, you will get a great job most like The campus is nice but gets old within a week or two. The scenery towards the water is stunning but the rest of the campus is quite dull. ...Continue reading

    Great academics, however, it is a small school in a small town. Geneva is up and coming and has great restaurants, but a car is pretty necessary if you want to get places easily. Syracuse and Rochester are also about an hour away, which is nice if you have the time and a car to get there. The social scene is decent and really depends on your friend group and if you enjoy them. ...Continue reading

    I love this school. Athletics are also excellent at HWS. But if you want encouraging and helpful professors then this is the right place for you. ...Continue reading

  • Overall school rating 3/5
    Hobart is a school where you're reputation as a person will go a long way, being at such a small school people would rather assume what you are like rather than go out of the way and meet you yourself. And, on the particular, there is a big hate movement towards smithies, which is supposedly a population of airheads. I particularly think that it is completely bogus, and that if everyone just relaxed and accepted each other, all would be well. ...Continue reading

  • Overall school rating 3/5
    Yeah it is a little out of the way and some facilities need some upgrades but academics are strong and getting better every year. It's beautiful, academically challenging, and the personal connections you make with the professors make it a unique college experience. ...Continue reading

  • Overall school rating 4/5
    Kind of disappointed in the lack of sports teams on the club level but that's something they will help you make. Classes are hard but reputation is the best ...Continue reading

    You really get out what you put in here, so make the best of it. ...Continue reading

  • Overall school rating 3/5
    Beautiful campus with all around good people. Garbage weather, but students still have fun. If you challenge yourself with difficult courses you will get a strong education from committed and thoughtful professors in all subjects. The only gripe I have (being a picky eater) is the limited variety and quality of Saga's food. ...Continue reading

  • Overall school rating 3/5
    School is fun mostly greek life and off campus house parties, the weather and food on the other hand will be disappointing. Only down side is the campus safety is really strict and shuts down frat parties all the time. When there arent frat parties to go to theres nothing to do. ...Continue reading

    This school is not meant for everyone, meaning that if you do not like being in a rural area, it would be best to avoid. ...Continue reading

    HWS is amazing, it has a really diverse cultural life, and if you attend events, it's hard to get bored. It was a great place for me. ...Continue reading

    So pretty much... They like the school, I guess but they don't love it. There is sadly not much enthusiasm when students say I go to Hobart and William Smith! unless they are putting on a show for prosepectice students or working during orientation. Not a school that understands genuine pride ...Continue reading
