Student Reviews and Ratings for Hillsdale College

Overall Rating:

Overall Rating:

This college is exemplary and unique. So unique that it receives special treatment in the US tax code, unlike any other college in the nation. A truly shameful example of kleptocratic "conservativism."

Overall Rating:

An institution that is true to its stated values. Solid values, top rate education. I could not recommend more highly to responsible young people, and older people, too!

Source of the review: Google Places, Google Maps™

Overall Rating:

Their focus is true education with responsibility in both intellect and moral/ethical daily choice of lifestyle.

Overall Rating:

My oldest applied. She is president of her class, she volunteers for many things. Teachers love her. She is part of national honors society. They rejected her to come. She is very passionate about the constitution and u.s history. She will be attending Oral Roberts University. I was disappointed. Love what the school is but she was more than qualified to go.

Overall Rating:

Honest, Trustworthy. Offers free courses. One of very few Colleges who teach American history in truth.
