            The students and professors that you will or can meet at holy cross are outstanding. Holy Cross has devoted its self to caring about you as an individual. The various activities, clubs, groups and even classes…allow you to grow and reach your potential. I loved Holy Cross, and would absolutely do another four years there!

            Holy Cross was one of the friendliest campus' I visited. Absolutely enjoyed my four years there. The professors cared about your education. Graduating from the Cross opened many doors for employment. Also met my spouse as well! I now give back with helping out the Admissions office and am very involved with the Holy Cross Club of New Jersey. Go Cross!

            The College of the Holy Cross provided me with a terrific Jesuit liberal arts education. The professors were top notch, the campus is beautiful and modern and I met an incredible group of lifelong friends. The education is coupled with forming "men and women for others" and there are lots of ways to give back to the community while learning. I couldn't recommend this school enough!
