A tiny private school in Lynchburg, VA with crappy acedemics and a great basketball team. No one but your mom and your math teacher cares what your grades are as long as you play volleyball, basketball, or softball.
It doesn't matter that he has a 1.3, didn't you see his four 3-pointers in a row last night? Hell yea, that's what Holy Cross is all about!

Analogous to a J.Crew catalog, this preppy, snobbish Jesuit college is infested with stuck-up rich kids fresh out of boarding school. Holy Cross is reputed for its sheer homogeneity and the inferior quality of food. It is built on the top of an effing mountain and the campus is notorious for its harsh winter climate. Perhaps one of its most ironically redeeming qualities is its proximity to WooTown (Worcester, MA), a low-SES city crammed with "Woo Rats" (Worcester locals), and home to some of the "classiest" bars and clubs in the U.S. If you are overweight, if you don't like to pop your collar, or if you're not an alcoholic, you probably ought not attend this school. Also if you enjoy getting A's, you ought to look into an easier school - like Harvard; because welcome to Holy Cross, where your best is never good enough and you will never experience the fruition of your labors.
Wait, if you go to Holy Cross... then why are you driving a Toyota?

My parents won't let me go to Holy Cross.. I got alcohol poisoning last time i visited.

college in the middle of boondock worchester massachusetts. situated on a hill, fat chicks stay away from this college or instead of gaining the freshman 15 lose it pretty quickly. it doesnt get warm there till graduation day as well.
Famous students consist of Bob Cousy, Chris Matthews, and Mike Wooters.

Best College by far in that area of Massachusetts
"Look at that dude wearing the red sox hat, and the tube socks wrapped up around his pant legs. He's got books too. He must not go to Assumption, hes got to go to Holy Cross."

Preppy, isolated school overlooking one of the more useless cities in the US, Worcester. Filled with people who really would rather be shitfaced then in class, the atmosphere can be quite maddening if you do not have the means to escape campus everyone now and then (aka have a car). The food sucks, but that is not a problem for most, since anorexia is all the rage here. When in doubt, if you don't know someone's name try "Caitlin" or "Joe."
caitlin please wear lacoste, not imposter. this is Holy Cross, not Worcester State. mix my gin with vodka please, not juice. i alreay had 110 calories at dinner with my 2 oz. salad.

A small but prestigious Jesuit undergraduate college of old money, it is located on a ‘hill’ overlooking a mid-sized cesspool (Worcester, MA) and filled to the brim with rich white kids studying to be whiter and richer (when they aren’t totally hammered). The historic campus is a designated ‘arboretum’ which just means that olden day people planted lots of trees there so that drunken kids could later pee on them. The trees and fancy old buildings don’t make up for the fact that the campus is on the side of a damn mountain and the many stairs become death chutes during the notoriously snowy winters –which last till May. The food is of the lowest quality although gaining weight is rare due to the fact that crossing campus requires climbing between several altitudinal zones. A’s are not given to students at and those who seek them are readily advised to attend easier schools –like Harvard. Holy Cross has the highest academic rating of any Catholic institution in the country (98/100) and ranks above most comparably snobbish colleges (see ‘Ivy League’). To lessen the obvious pains of academic life most students resort to aggressively binge drinking in large groups throughout the week, continuing to pursue the activity in a more belligerent form over weekends. Though most students never want to leave, graduation compensates them with a 65k+ starting salary, a fondness for Vineyard Vines, and life membership to AA.
–“Joe, didn't you go to Harvard?”

–“No, I went to 'cause I'm not Asian and I drink too much.”

–“I’m applying to Holy Cross because I want to make more money than my asshole friends at Georgetown”

–“Dude I like those pink shorts.”
–“I got them when I went to Holy Cross.”

–“How do you remember? You got alcohol poisoning last time you were there.”

When you slide your boner up, around and then under your belt as to conceal it from unsuspecting bystanders, resulting in a perpendicular formation between said boner and belt. Often performed through manipulation of the boner through a pants pocket, but when done professionally, direct contact can be performed inconspicuously as well.
"I had a raging boner today in class, thank god for the Holy Cross when it came time to stand up to do my presentation"

"See that guy in the tattered rags, with the knife, setting that car on fire? He's from Holy Cross."
