Frederick, Md. - For students at Hood College, the term collegian is not only in reference to their education, but also their lifestyle. The college campus, a tidy collection of dignified brick buildings and manicured lawns, exudes intellect. A medley of quaint shops lining the newly constructed river walk in historical Frederick, exudes culture. The college atmosphere, advocating tradition and honor, exudes character.

Hood College offers classic ideals in a contemporary environment, an impeccable blend of past and present. Don't let the private school price tag scare you - Hood College offers a wealth of financial aid. Visit www.hood.edu for more information.
