Overall Rating

Hobart College was a unique experience and one I would recommend to any prospective student looking for a liberal arts education in a small, New England-esque setting. Campus is beautiful and steeped in history dating well into the 19th century. Winters are long but campus life in the fall/spring certainly make up for time spent indoors.
