There are three reasons why a student should consider Holy Names University:
- The Holy Names campus provides a close-knit, supportive environment that allows for rigorous learning and personal development. Students experience close partnerships with distinguished faculty and learn to question, experiment, research, and sharpen professional skills that they will use throughout their lives. Students also have many chances to have fun, volunteer, assume leadership roles, and express their creativity.
- The majority of HNU’s classes have fewer than 20 students—which provides a more personal education and allows for more extensive interaction with faculty. This comfortable learning environment encourages the sharing of ideas with classmates and sets the foundation for leadership and service in a complex world.
- Holy Names University is located on 60 wooded acres in the Oakland hills. The unique location offers a breathtaking, panoramic view of Oakland, San Francisco and the Bay. Nestled among the hills, the campus provides a safe haven and an extremely beautiful study atmosphere. At the same time (BART) makes it easy to reach museums, sporting events, and world-class performing arts within minutes. Convenient day-long or weekend trips may be made to Yosemite National Park, the Sierra Gold Country, Lake Tahoe, Monterey Bay and Carmel, and to the Napa Valley and Sonoma County Parks surrounding the campus offer numerous opportunities for hiking, horseback riding, or bicycling.
