约翰霍普金斯大学介绍

约翰霍普金斯大学(Johns Hopkins University,缩写JHU,别名“菊花大学”)成立于1876年1月22日,系根据美国著名慈善家约翰·霍普金斯的遗嘱使用其遗产建立。约翰霍普金斯大学是一所中等大小的非营利私立研究型大学,主校区位于美国马里兰州巴尔的摩市,在华盛顿特区、中国南京、新加坡、意大利博洛尼亚都有分校区。约翰霍普金斯大学是美国第一所现代研究型大学,它的成功引发了美国大学向研究型大学转型的风潮,一批新的研究型大学也随之纷纷建立。学校以医学、公共卫生、空间科学、国际关系、文学及音乐等学科而闻名世界,也是哈勃空间望远镜和詹姆斯·韦伯空间望远镜的地面控制中心所在地。美国国家科学基金会连续31年将该校列为全美科研经费开支最高的大学。截止至2012年,约翰霍普金斯大学共有36名校友获诺贝尔奖。

注:约翰霍普金斯是19世纪巴尔的摩地区著名的美国企业家、废奴主义者与慈善家。很多院系都是由其名字命名,如:约翰霍普金斯医院、约翰霍普金斯护理学院、约翰霍普金斯医学院、约翰霍普金斯公共健康学院。

好评项:

1 Baltimore is a great mid-size city that offers many entertainment options. Washington, D.C., is an easy day trip away.
2 Despite being in the city, Hopkins is actually very beautiful and green. When on campus, you never ever feel like you're in a city.
3 Johns Hopkins University has a great academic reputation. This reputation helps students network and find jobs right out of college.
4 Lack of a general core curriculum. Individual majors have requirements, but there are no courses that everyone takes.
5 Off-campus housing is affordable. Baltimore is a city with a low cost of living.
6 Research opportunities abound. If you want to do research as an undergraduate, Hopkins is a great choice.
7 Students organize symposia and lectures with world-class speakers. These speakers discuss topics from engineering to international relations to film.
8 Transportation around the city is quick, easy, and cheap. This allows students to explore the many benefits of Baltimore.
9 You can walk anywhere on campus and to almost all off-campus housing within 15 minutes.
10 All of the dorm and food options are well above average. Hopkins students are spoiled by this.

差评项:

1 The competitive nature of the students. The school is so competitive that a large number of students rarely take a break from studying. As the school year drags on, you begin to see the same people in the library.
2 Hopkins lacks traditional school spirit. Students are proud of the Hopkins name and reputation, but not its athletics.
3 Many students feel that professors are more concerned with their own research than with helping the students they teach.
4 The on-campus meal plan leaves a lot to be desired. Although there's a wide selection of food offered, students dislike the meal plan requirement for freshmen and sophomores. It is expensive, and the dining halls repeat food choices often.
5 Parking is a headache. Even when friends come to visit for a day or two, it is almost impossible to find them a parking spot.
6 There are unsafe neighborhoods surrounding Hopkins, and new students need to learn where they should and should not walk.
7 Tuition is extremely expensive. Although financial aid packages and scholarships lower the burden, most students graduate with large amounts of debt.
8 With the name recognition attached, students expect to have an adequate health and wellness center. The Student Health & Wellness Center, however, is famous around campus for misdiagnosing student illnesses.
9 Although there are around 6,000 undergrads, it often feels like you always see and deal with the same people.
10 Grade deflation makes it difficult to maintain a high GPA, though there are always exceptions. Very academically rigorous.
