What was something that stood out to you about Holy Cross?

The classes at Holy Cross were on the smaller side so I was able to have a much more engaged academic experience other than just lectures. I also liked how residential the college was, and how most people lived either close to the college or on campus so everyone is very involved in campus and are not rushing home after class.

What was something you looked forward to experiencing at Holy Cross?

I was looking forward to the Montserrat classes, being in a year long class and getting close with my classmates exploring topics that I was not as familiar with in comparison to some of my other classes.

What makes HC special for you?

The community and the amazing professors

What is your favorite thing about HC?

My favorite thing is the HC spirit,  everyone is just so happy to be here!

Once you graduate, what will you miss most about HC?

I will miss walking around campus and just seeing all the familiar faces

What is one piece of advice you would like to give to prospective students?

You won’t make the wrong decision in the end!

Name: Spencer Caron

Class Year: 2020

Major/Minor: Philosophy & Neuroscience

Hometown: Belchertown, MA

What was something that stood out to you about Holy Cross?

The close knit community and supportive alumni network

What was something you looked forward to experiencing at Holy Cross?

Taking courses in different disciplines.

What types of things do you enjoy talking about with prospective students/families?

I like talking about the different majors and my and my friends’ experiences with their favorite classes. I also like talking about the food on campus and how Kimball is continually getting better.

What do you find prospective students are most concerned about and what advice would you give them about it?

They are usually most concerned about finding a major quickly and I tell them that I am a sophomore and have barely made any progress on my major/minor, but will be perfectly fine in the end.

What makes HC special for you?

It is an undergraduate institution that is most concerned about student success.  Research, partying and sports come second to making sure students are successful in their lives beyond HC

What is your favorite thing about HC?

The size.  I would never have been able to do the things I have already done if the school was larger.  The size also allows me to know the students in my class, and easily become acquainted with professors

Once you graduate, what will you miss most about HC?

I will miss weekend days with my friends and taking unnecessary trips to target to buy snacks for the room.  Leaving HC will probably mark the end of being able to hang out with friends on a regular basis
