Welcome! November News and Updates

Alumnae_Hall_SM-560x361Happy November 1, and welcome back to the Hood College Counselor Connection! This year marks the 125th anniversary of Hood College, and we are thrilled to be celebrating the College’s history as we look toward the future and continue to improve our community.

We are now in the process of reviewing applications for next year’s incoming class, and we will continue to review applications and award financial aid on a rolling basis throughout this academic year. Students are currently being reviewed for both Spring and Fall 2018 admission, and all students are automatically considered for merit-based scholarships.

In addition to celebrating our 125th anniversary, we are excited to announce the following news from Hood College:

  • We recently signed enrollment agreements with Frederick Community College, Carroll Community College, and Montgomery College to make it easier for transfer students to join our community. We look forward to adding to this list throughout the year!

  • Beginning with the class of 2022, residential students will be required to live on campus for their first three years at Hood. To facilitate the implementation of this new policy, we are in the planning stage for construction of a new residence hall.

  • Yaa Gyasi, author of Homegoing, recently visited campus as part of our first-year read program for a discussion, Q&A session, and a book signing event.

  • Crystal Griner ‘06 was awarded the President’s Medal for Obligation by our president, Andrea Chapdelaine, Ph. D. in a ceremony held on campus in late September. Griner, a Capitol Police Officer, was recognized for her heroic actions when a gunman opened fire during a congressional baseball practice earlier this year.

If you are a member of a professional organization that needs a meeting location, we would love to host your event! Please contact Elizabeth Gomer (gomer@hood.edu) for more information.
