Johns Hopkins University (JHU) is a public research university that is a world leader in education, research, and medical healthcare. When it was founded in 1876 by benefactor Johns Hopkins, it was divided into the university and a separate hospital - The Johns Hopkins Hospital. Today the university has three major campuses: the headquarters "Homewood" campus in Baltimore, a campus in Washington, D.C., and a campus in Montgomery County, Maryland. Johns Hopkins University also maintains learning facilities throughout the Baltimore-Washington area and in China and Italy. The Homewood Campus sits on 140 acres of green space and offers courses for part-time and full-time undergraduates, as well as programs for full-time graduate students. Part-time coursework is also available to master's degree students. Johns Hopkins Institutions are comprised of the university and the Johns Hopkins Health System. Together, these institutions are the state's largest private employers. Johns Hopkins programs rank first among U.S. universities in many areas, including federally funded research programs, the School of Medicine, and the Bloomberg School of Public Health. Johns Hopkins faculty members and their research colleagues have won more federal research and development funding than any other university in the U.S. since 1979. The general academic calendar for Johns Hopkins University follows the semester format, with fall, spring, and summer semesters. However, the summer semester is divided into several "Summer Sessions." There is a "Winter Intersession" offered in January. Each of Johns Hopkins University's nine schools maintains separate academic calendars, which may vary somewhat from the general academic calendar. Students are encouraged to consult the academic calendar for their specific school within the university to determine their schedules.

The professors are great at lecturing and generally very understanding and helpful. Most professors and TAs find ways to help you and understand any problem you could encounter. There are always little events happening and giveaways that help keep moods up. Overall the environment is good.
One has to study, most record lectures and thus definitely review those. Do extra credit if you have the opportunity.
The resources and student body at Johns Hopkins are like no other! While it is certainly a challenging environment, it is also a place of tremendous personal growth.
Johns Hopkins is a very rigorous school. Student mental health is not the best, and the administration can be unresponsive to the voices of both students and faculty at times.
There are many opportunities to learn.
The administration tries to extract as much money from students as possible.
