Who better can articulate what it's like to be a Piper than Pipers themselves?
Along with the prestige that comes with Hamline University, I chose Hamline because the campus had professors with real life experiences/careers. Being taught by someone still in the field I want to pursue is absolutely amazing.
The most valuable aspect of the university is the student to professor relationships. All of my professors, regardless of the type of class, wanted to create an atmosphere for learning and creativity in their own way. Their dedication to have their students learn and be engaged is incredible. I value the relationships that occur with the professors. Hamline University professors are lifelong mentors.
I chose Hamline for the diverse community and the small class sizes. It offers more time to connect with professors. My favorite Hamline memory is going on a Target run freshman year with my roommate. It was the first time we hung out.One thing I’d like to accomplish while at Hamline is studying abroad in Brazil!
I chose Hamline because I love the Twin Cities, but I also love the small community feel. It’s a safe haven from all the hustle and bustle of city life.Our annual Fireball dances make for some of my favorite memories. I also love hanging out with my teammates.My favorite place on campus is historic Hutton. I love the smell of the old wood floors, and all the history in there really is magical.
I chose Hamline because it’s a small university with a welcoming atmosphere. My favorite Hamline memory was when the men’s soccer team made the playoffs.My advice for incoming students is to not be afraid. You’ll find out that you’ll fit in somewhere. Don’t rush it.
One of my favorite Hamline memories is the tour I took before I came to campus. I’d advise any incoming students to take one.
While at Hamline, I’d like to set myself up to graduate in four years with a double major.
My favorite place off campus is the Mall of America. I love the shopping!
My favorite Hamline memory is participating in things like metal pours in the sculpture department.The most valuable aspect of the university is all of the resources available to students. Everything from academic to personal! The best part of being a Piper is the amazing people you get to meet everyday. Everyone is so passionate, and it’s contagious.
