“Heartbreaking, infuriating, and unmissable.” “Brick by brick, Hunting carefully and methodically builds the case that an integral part of our higher-education system isn’t just blemished but broken. We need to fix it.” Grade “A” – Leah Greenblatt, Entertainment Weekly

The Hunting Ground is a must-see for all university students, and those preparing for college as well as parents who send them off and the educators who guide them. ***1/2 out of 4 – Claudia Puig, USA Today
