College Life Rating

HU has one of the BEST college life experiences. There is always something to do, something to join whether it be community service club, state clubs or academic clubs there is never a moment where you could say you have nothing to do and if that is the case, it is because you made that decision.

Student at This School - Grad Year 2015

College Life Rating

The clubs, athletics, campus safety, social atmosphere, and weekend activities can be described in one word, tremendous. All of these bring a lively and safe environment all in one. I love it here and would not want to go to any other school.
