Change from college to University has helped with athletic recognition

Campus patrol is strict and tickets are handed out forcefully
College Senior 2013-08-24T19:07:23Z
The process was not easy so I appreciate they just do not take anyone.
College Senior 2013-08-24T19:04:25Z
I feel they are giving us the cutting edge in education for what we will need for when we are teaching ourselves.

The parking on campus is terrible. There are more students than parking places.

There is virtually no off-campus dining at MHC. There is a subway, but that is pretty much it.
College Sophomore 2013-07-31T05:15:14Z
The dining areas around campus are few and far between. The dining hall only has good food about once a month, and there is only one other place to eat on campus, and it is really expensive.
College Sophomore 2013-07-31T05:11:49Z
The drug scene at MHC is fairly big. I knew personally of a few different people who were dealers. However, there is much more drinking at the college.
College Sophomore 2013-07-15T00:40:31Z
Depends on who you hangout with and how much you give into peer pressure. but drinking is more popular then smoking would be you rarely see smoking.
College Sophomore 2013-07-15T00:35:05Z
majority of our students are black and white. there is only a hand full of students that are a different race. but that hand full of people are never neglated. But the confidence in students to meet new people from a different race needs to improve. but overall theres never really any problems.

Mars Hill is very big on sports, they put a lot of money, time and resources into the sport programs. This leaves very little money for the rest of the non-athletic needy students, like myself. The sports aren't very highly ranked because we are a small school. However we do recruit a lot of people in, because we offer them full rides. Our soccer team and cycling team has done very well in the past, but the rest are mediocre
College Junior 2013-07-03T15:13:25Z
Mars Hill is very conservative in it's beliefs. However, kids find ways around the rules and break them anyways. Parking is almost always on point, if you park where you aren't suppose to you will get a ticket.

I love mountain weather but this year it has been wild compared to usual. This year itv would snow one day and then it would be exponentially hotter the next day. It really was crazy. Eventually you get used to it but it never fails to be interesting. You could wake up to a nice warm day or there could be inches of snow and ice on the ground. You never know what you are going to get. You can watch the news but it is generally wrong. The weather in Mars Hill is very unpredictable.

The campus does not provide transportation for its students. This is always a problem because the campus is located 15 minutes from the Tennessee state line in the Appalachian Mountains of North Carolina. Everything off campus is atleast a twenty mintue ride to Asheville and if you do not own a car or have a friend with one you are stuck on campus. To have a car on campus is 250 dollars a year. As for long distance transportation the bus station is in Asheville and the airport is in Hendersonville. Each of these locations are atleast twenty mintues away from the campus with the campus providing no transportation. The town does not have transportation because the town is a small mountain town that revolves around the college.

The school awards many scholarships for its students. The school does try to make everything moderately affordable for everything. I have had a hassle everytime it is financial aid time because Mars Hill always loses my paperwork or there is always a complication that arises. But for most everyone else there are no major issues and evrything goes very smoothly. Applying for financial aid early is always a great plan.

Mars Hill College has an interesting curriculum. There is a large intrest in education and social sciences. There are many people that are majoring in some form of science. The workloads are not bad for most people. Some of the "hard" science majors talk about the stuggle with labratory time and the hassle it creates.
College Freshman 2013-06-06T18:55:11Z
We have specific courses that are alotted for internships and reseach in your field of study. There are also banquets throughout the year to mean professionals and begin setting up a network of people to assist you in getting a job after college. There are days set aside through the school for career building and resumes. Everyone is incredibly helpful. My major is wonderful. The professors are highly intuitive and truly care about the well-being of their students. The professors are very understanding when it comes to the students lives on campus and at home. The workload, in my opinion, is not bad. It is a lot of reading and lectures. We have to take a lot of notes.

The school is a dry campus therefore there is no drinking allowed by anyone. The RA's are tolerant and kind as long as they get along with you. There are some RA's that should not be allowed to have such a job because they abuse it and go on power trips. Other than that the campus piolice are or can be easy to get along with but they tend to go over board in small or silly issues and they seem not to care about the major problems. The campus security is known for offering a two hundred dollar reward when they cannot apprehend the criminal and they want "dirt" on them.
College Sophomore 2013-06-02T00:26:26Z
The school focuses a lot on sports and gives more scholarships to those who play. This is not fair.

Mars Hill has a great infirmary and safety options.

FAFSA says my family should not have to pay anything for tuition but secretly the school added three to four student loans to my financial aid package. I do not think that fair.
College Sophomore 2013-06-02T00:21:38Z
The school cooks a lot of similar dishes and the weekend hours are ridiculous.
College Junior 2013-05-30T01:41:06Z
There are very few restaurants off campus and of the ones that we have they are either a bit pricey for a college student budget or they are open on odd days or at odd hours. The only place that I know of that is always accessible is Waffle House.

There are a ton of athletes at Mars Hill and I know that a lot of people attend the football games, though less people attend the games of the other sports. I think that the teams do pretty well (I don't pay much attention to sports myself). It's bothersome however that the school seems to focus more on athletics instead of other areas such as the band or other arts.
Sorry, there are no reviews.
