Hopkins Insiders

An insider's look

The best way to learn about the undergrad experience at Hopkins is to hear from students themselves.

What is it that makes a school unique? What makes it somewhere you’d like to spend four important years? It’s not just the campus or the buildings; it’s the people you meet and the experiences that undergraduates share which shape the college community.

Hopkins Insider is your gateway to our campus community, with student profiles, blogs, photos, videos, and more.

“While the jump from Hopkins to art school may seem unlikely, the amazing film department and other opportunities I was granted at Hopkins crystallized my creative abilities and point of view. Hopkins allowed me to explore different fields while diving into my interests, and this led me to discover that I’m truly passionate about design.”—Genevieve O. ’17
