简评

On-campus dining isn’t spectacular, but it has drastically improved recently. In the past couple of years, the freshman and upperclassman cafeterias have been completely renovated, and the quality and selection of food has greatly improved. The new freshman cafeteria, called Fresh Food Café, is an all-you-can-eat buffet that always offers a mix of pizza, salads, sandwiches, burgers, vegetables, meats, and desserts. It also has vegan and kosher selections, although you have to pay extra for the kosher meal plan. This cafeteria is open for breakfast, lunch, and dinner, and focuses on using fresh ingredients and always has a healthy option or two. The new upperclassman cafeteria, Nolan's, is in Charles Commons. This eatery is not an all-you-can-eat buffet, but it offers gourmet salads and sandwiches, pizza, grilled foods, and pastas. Students can also use their meal plans at Charles Street Market and Einstein’s Bagels, which is a great addition to JHU and is located underneath Wolman, one of the freshman dorms.

The main complaint students have about the meal plan is that they are required to purchase it as long as they are living on campus. The meal plan is expensive, and many students would rather cook for themselves or eat at the many local eateries. The dining halls get repetitive after several months of eating in them two or three times daily. However, most schools require students to purchase a meal plan if they are living in university housing, so this complaint comes from college students nationwide. Overall, JHU provides students with many on-campus dining choices, and the school is constantly trying to improve these services.

 

Hopkins has renovated and is continuing to renovate many facilities on campus due to students’ complaints. The campus itself is beautiful—several years ago, an anonymous donor gave money to replace all asphalt pathways with brick, and the quads are landscaped well and surrounded by flowers and trees. After driving through Baltimore to get to Hopkins, walking around the beautiful campus is a very pleasant surprise. While on campus, you barely feel like you are in the city. E-Level, located in Levering Hall, is a great place to hang out, with its free televisions, video games, and pool tables, but many students still wish it were an on-campus bar. The Mattin Center, Levering Student Union, and the Recreation Center were all built or remodeled in the past few years, and students are happy with these facilities. The main complaint is that although these buildings contain more space for student recreation, music practice, and theater, they are still crowded. On the other hand, these three buildings are state-of-the-art compared to other facilities.

Students have responded well to the renovations that the administration has made. There are plenty of places for student groups to meet, and the campus is well maintained. The Recreation Center and the Mattin Center are grade-A buildings. These facilities only lose points because they are not big enough for the interest they have generated. Levering Hall has E-Level, a cafeteria, and large meeting rooms for student fashion shows, dances, and lectures. The athletic facilities are state-of-the-art because of the Division I lacrosse team.

 

People get accepted into Hopkins because of their intelligence, not because of their attractiveness. That isn’t to say that there aren’t attractive people at Hopkins. The biggest difference is that students at Hopkins pay less attention to their appearance than students at other schools. There’s no one type of person that dominates Hopkins: There are preppy people, jocks, and foreign students. Girls like the near 50:50 ratio of guys to girls, and it isn’t hard to meet people of the opposite sex since almost all dorms are coed. In the AMRs, there are a decent number of hookups, but many of them aren’t too serious. By sophomore year, there are less hookups and more relationships, which tend to be based on common interests, not looks. Even so, many students go through Hopkins without having a boyfriend or girlfriend. If you are upset by the selections at Johns Hopkins, you can easily travel to several other area colleges to meet more people.

On the whole, Hopkins is a pretty average campus when it comes to looks. There aren’t many, if any, models running around, and there’s a running joke on campus about the pick-up line for attractive people being “You must go to Towson/Loyola.” The population is diverse, so there’s no traditional look here. Most of the students are pretty down-to-earth and studious. Even if you don’t end up dating anyone, you will, at the very least, make friends with members of the opposite sex.

Baltimore is a city with many great bars, restaurants, and attractions, but it takes time and effort to find these spots. The city isn’t huge, so learning how to get around doesn’t take rocket science, but you do need to know where the good spots are. It is great if you have a friend with a car, but public transportation can also be used. You can hop in a cab and get anywhere in the city for less than $20. Baltimore is a city of neighborhoods, and each of these has a very distinctive feel. Johns Hopkins straddles several neighborhoods: Roland Park, a residential neighborhood with parks and mansions; Charles Village, a collegiate-urban environment; and Hamden, a working-class neighborhood. A little further from campus, Mount Vernon houses Peabody Conservatory, Maryland Institute College of Art, and several theaters, and it is known for being a trendy artists’ area. From early spring through fall, neighborhoods host festivals that celebrate the particular feel of their neighborhoods with food, vendors, and games. However, students who don’t regularly read city newspapers miss out on these neighborhood events. Freshmen mainly go to the mall in Towson and the Inner Harbor, both of which can get old quickly. Make sure you visit the National Aquarium at least once.

Baltimore is a fun medium-sized city. Those who come from big cities are disappointed by the lack of activities, but there are a number of activities for a city of its size. Once you are 21, there are a plethora of great bars. Keep in mind that Baltimore is within four hours of Washington DC, Ocean City, Richmond, Philadelphia, Pittsburgh, Newark, and New York City. Washington DC and Philadelphia are an easy train ride away.

 

Johns Hopkins’ students have many options when it comes to nightlife, some just don’t take advantage of them. The students who complain about the social scene at JHU need to open their eyes. There are three bars within walking distance of campus—two sports bars and a dance club. If you enjoy dancing, then the Den is the place for you. Students from Towson and Loyola frequently take cabs to party at the Hopkins’ bars. Student organizations have added to the nightlife scene by realizing the need for school-sponsored club nights, and while groups used to organize these nights once a semester, they now offer them two to three times a month. For a small charge, students get transportation, club entry, and sometimes even drinks. Some of these nights are open only to Hopkins students, while others give students a chance to meet individuals from other schools. If students are willing to look around Baltimore, they will likely find a club that matches their interests. In addition, many students go to house parties with their friends. There are three main fraternities on campus that throw parties once in a while, but they are usually crowded. It is fun to check these parties out and then head to the bars.

Johns Hopkins’ students work hard throughout the week, but the campus comes to life on Friday and Saturday. The three bars near campus (PJ’s, Charles Village Pub, and The Den) are relatively small, so that is the main downside, but outgoing students venture outside the confines of these bars. Going to Towson or Loyola bars is usually a blast because this gives you a chance to meet new people. If you are not a fan of going to the bars, there are other fun activities on campus, such as student plays, concerts, and movies. Some students are ambitious enough to travel to the Inner Harbor or Fell’s Point area, both of which are known for their nightlife. These areas provide a much different social scene and it is only about a 10 dollar cab ride. For the few individuals who are unsatisfied with the nightlife in Baltimore, DC is only a short train or car ride away.

 

The off-campus dining choices for JHU students are endless. There are enough restaurants around Baltimore to satisfy even the pickiest eaters, and about 15 of these restaurants are within walking distance of Hopkins. The Hopkins and Collegetown shuttles or access to a car will greatly increase your culinary options. Since Hopkins has such a diverse student body, students go to ethnic restaurants at least as frequently as ones that serve American cuisine. Suggested restaurants include Xando, Ruby Tuesday, Cheesecake Factory, Chipotle, Niwana, Holy Frijoles, and Thai Landing.

While at Hopkins, make sure you get out at least occasionally to sample the restaurants Baltimore has to offer. Students mainly cite the lack of time and money as reasons they don’t get out to eat more, not the restaurant selection, but since Baltimore has so many college students and young professionals, there are numerous places where you can get a delicious meal for less than 10 dollars. There are even places where you can get a meal for 5 or 6 dollars and still bring home leftovers. If students make the effort to try restaurants around Baltimore, in addition to ones adjacent to Hopkins, they’ll be sure to find a favorite.

Off-campus housing is cheap and convenient. If you are open to living anywhere within four blocks of campus, housing is also plentiful, with students living in one-, two-, three, or four-bedroom apartments and rowhouses. It is more difficult to find housing directly across the street from the University but not impossible if you look early. Students are spread out in every direction from campus, so no matter where you choose to live, you are likely to find other students as your neighbors. Make sure you go through the building carefully before signing the lease because some landlords aren’t known for keeping the buildings in good shape. Even though you will not have trouble finding housing, expect to look on your own. It’s a good idea to ask upperclassmen to talk with their landlords and put in a good word for you, but many students have not found the off-campus housing office to be helpful.

Finding off-campus housing won’t prove to be an issue, but some students don’t like that Hopkins has almost no upperclassman housing options after requiring students to live on campus for their first two years. But housing is plentiful, and Baltimore has low property prices. The problem lies in that students often forget that they live in a city, and that they need to be concerned with security. Students have been robbed walking to and from their houses, and many student houses have been burglarized. If you live in a rowhouse, lock your doors all the time and find a place with bars on your windows. If you keep a few basic safety guidelines in mind, however, you should have a great experience living off campus.

The weather is unpredictable in Baltimore. Students from the north tend to complain that it never gets really cold and that it hardly ever snows. There are usually several small snowfalls each winter, but the city shuts down because it isn’t prepared to deal with snow. Although public schools close at the hint of snow, Johns Hopkins stays open at long as possible because it is so difficult to reschedule classes. When Hopkins does cancel class, most professors reschedule classes at their convenience. It is sunny most days, but storms come up without warning, and it is not uncommon to have thunderstorms every night during the spring and summer. Bring clothing for a variety of seasons.

Most students don’t find the weather in Baltimore unpleasant. They do, however, dislike not knowing what kind of weather to expect at any given time. Many days it looks warm outside while it is still cold and windy. People who stay at Hopkins during the summer complain about the humidity, but during the school year, the weather is overall mild. As long as you are prepared for unpredictable weather, Baltimore weather should not be a detriment to enjoying life at Hopkins.

Hopkins students are generally pleased with academics. If you ask JHU students what the deciding factor was for choosing Hopkins, the school’s strong academic reputation tops the list. The medical school is regarded as the best in the world, and other majors, such as engineering, economics, and international relations, are nationally recognized. There is some contention between the engineering/science and the humanities/social science students, but this is only because Hopkins students thrive on competition. Some students are cutthroat, but for the most part, JHU students are willing to lend a helping hand. Humanities/social science students have more control over their schedules, and their classes focus less on memorization and more on critical thinking. Engineering/science students complain that their classes are tougher, but this is definitely up for debate. The only universal complaint Hopkins’ students have about academics is that some teachers are unapproachable and are only interested in their personal research. Underclassmen are turned off by large lecture courses, in which professors don’t really engage with any of the students, which makes some students feel as if the professors are not really there to help them. Courses with teaching assistants are great, because TAs are often more accessible than professors. The general belief is that teaching assistants have more interest in helping students learn than professors.

Academics at Hopkins would be stronger if there were greater camaraderie and individual attention in lower-level lecture courses. Students who need or want a lot of individual attention have to make the effort to meet the professor or teaching assistant outside of class. This is less true in small, upper-level seminar courses. Students also complain about the lack of grade inflation at Hopkins, which puts them at a disadvantage when compared with students who attend other top universities. This disadvantage is overpowered by the fact that Hopkins’ students have access to some of the best professors and researchers in the world. Hopkins provides ample opportunities for students to design independent studies and research. Overall, Hopkins is the perfect fit for hard-working individuals who have a thirst for knowledge.

内部状况情况的评价:[Cover Grades] : The first semester your grades are on a pass/fail basis. This is awesome because you can focus on adjusting to college life (balancing homework, extracurriculars, work) without having to worry about your gpa that semester. Wed Feb 08 08:00:00 UTC 2012
校外就餐情况的评价:[Off-Campus] : There are a lot of restaurants around within walking distance. It's also really easy to get to the Inner Harbor where there are even more choices. Restaurants around campus will give you a discount for being a student which is a plus Wed Feb 08 08:00:00 UTC 2012
校舍设施情况的评价:[Library] : The library is really nice. It's easy to find books and the staff is helpful. The library gets crowed at times but the university just built an extension to the library so there will more room to study in the fall of 2012 Wed Feb 08 08:00:00 UTC 2012
校园规定情况的评价:[Work Hard Play Hard] : You definitely have to find your own fun at Hopkins. It's not the type of place that insists you drink or partake in drugs. One thing that is appreciated is the fact that Hopkins treats young students' foray into drinking with the appropriate amount of severity. No one's future is ruined because they went to a frat party while underage. Still, Hopkins isn't stupid and deals with severe infractions appropriately. Fri Feb 03 08:00:00 UTC 2012
体育运动情况的评价:[No School Spirit Unless You Like Lacrosse] : The only sport for which Hopkins really comes together is lacrosse. Despite having top teams in many other sports, Hopkins doesn't seem to encourage attendance to any games except those played by their only D1 sport. It's a pity, seeing as the performance by those other teams is equal to if not better than that of the lacrosse team. Fri Feb 03 08:00:00 UTC 2012
