Health & Safety:
Security is terrible - takes them 15 minutes to get to any call.
College Freshman 2013-12-11T07:38:08Z
Guys & Girls:
Boring campus, and no co-ed things
College Freshman 2013-12-11T07:37:33Z
Travel to Tech, or Hampden Sydney isn't bad at all and Roanoke is fabulous!
College Freshman 2013-12-11T07:36:23Z
Downtown Roanoke is great! Love it!
College Freshman 2013-12-11T07:34:55Z
I adore it - no one else seems to. Little to no school participation in athletic events on and off campus.
College Freshman 2013-11-07T02:37:12Z
The shuttle only runs Wednesday through Saturday, make sure if you go downtown that you remember where the shuttle stops. besides that they only stop at the Walmart and the mall nearby.

Health & Safety:
The campus security is overall nice and does patrols around the campus, just be careful at nights especially when there are parties on campus.
College Freshman 2013-11-07T02:28:39Z
It's nice to bring a laptop of your own, but there are plenty of computer labs open throughout the night and the printers are easy to use also.

Guys & Girls:
Its nice to know i always don't have to worry about guys trying to sneak into my dorm or something since its all girls, but sometimes it would be nice to have it co-ed because it can be too much being surrounded by only girls all the time.
College Freshman 2013-11-07T02:23:35Z
I love the campus and the community, but sometimes its odd to be at an all girls school and if you ever wanted to transfer to another school sometimes your credits won't transfer.

There's a big acceptance of the LGBTQA community here but many of the students have similaar politiccal beliefs or backgrounds.
College Freshman 2013-11-07T02:18:02Z
There's a $75 parking sticker per year, freshmen have to park in what's called "siberia" but it's maybe a five minuet walk from tinker so it's not too bad.
College Freshman 2013-11-07T02:15:45Z
First years live in tinker, which is closest to the parking lot, its the farthest from the classrooms yet its only a four minuet walk to them, so the distance is really nice.

There's many options to choose from if you want fast food or good quality restaurant style food and there's many different ethnic style foods nearby.
College Freshman 2013-11-07T02:09:48Z
It's Virginia, the weather could be cold one day and hot the next but its overall beautiful here, especially the scenery.
College Freshman 2013-11-07T02:08:14Z
Since i'm under twenty-one right now i don't know what the alcohol prices and variety look like, but i've heard that the parties are really good.
College Freshman 2013-11-07T02:02:11Z
They try to offer different options to those who are vegan, vegetarian and have to have gluten free meals, but the overall quality of the food is not that exciting and the hours are not that flexible sometimes.

The campus police are very nice and make the campus feel safe, the honor code is very strict but because of this it makes it feel very nice to know you can leave items in the library and come back later to get it.
College Freshman 2013-11-07T01:55:00Z
The financial aid package was very helpful, just make sure you keep in touch with them to make sure everything goes through.

Hollins is a very diverse campus, with lots of foreign students.
College Junior 2013-08-07T01:26:55Z
Pretty good in every season but winter. Classes are never canceled because of weather.
College Junior 2013-08-01T23:15:51Z
Hollins is pretty far away from the city and only provides transportation on the weekends.
College Junior 2013-05-28T17:53:16Z
There is a honor code that is very strict about violations. Violators go before the student led honor board and anyone that knows about a violator can also be brought before the honor board.

Roanoke is a fairly small city, but what's there is really nice. There's a lot of different activities happening downtown, at the mall, or in nearby Grandin, and the people tend to be open and friendly. There doesn't seem to be a whole lot of nightlife here, but I'm not really interested in that, so I'm not an expert on what it's like.
College Junior 2013-05-01T03:19:31Z
There is a shuttle that runs Wednesday through Saturday, weekdays being from 6 PM to midnight and Saturdays being from noon to midnight. The shuttle runs a closed loop from campus to the mall to Walmart to downtown, then back to the mall, Walmart, and campus. If you want to go somewhere else, go at a time between the shuttle stops, or go somewhere on Sundays, Mondays, or Tuesdays, it is best to have your own car or hitch a ride with a friend. Luckily ride-sharing is common and you are allowed to have your own car on campus. There is a taxi voucher system that takes money from your student account to pay for taxis, and it is fairly cheap to go to the airport. There is a bus station a few towns over if you need to travel long-distance.
Sorry, there are no reviews.
