"Caldwell University is an extremely diverse campus. It's very welcoming and prospective students can connect with one another quite easily. My time at Caldwell University has been amazing and quite enjoyable. There are numerous resources available for students and people are here to help one another!"

"Caldwell is currently the only CACREP approved Art Therapy program in the U.S., which makes it the top choice for anyone pursuing their Master's degree. With the AT field being so new, there are several changes/tweaks happening within the current (2017-2018) program. Methods in AT is one of my favorite classes, taught by a woman who is been in the field for more than 20 years, and is genuinely quite creative and knowledgeable in art and art therapy. The program is small, averaging about 70 women, yet very intensive. If a full-time student, I recommend working part-time (otherwise, flip the roles of FT/PT) - students are required to maintain a certain GPA, and get no lower than a B in any class. To the open-minded individuals, creative, think-outside-the-box beings, and those who have a destiny to help in a creative way, I recommend this program to YOU!"

"Caldwell University is a great institution. The small campus makes it feel like home for the four years you are there. The professors all get to know you due to the small class sizes. They also have many sources to help you succeed, such as the writing center and tutors. I truly enjoyed my four years there. If you like a small school with a "homey" environment then Caldwell is right for you."

"it was a good program, it was small so you actually felt like you mattered. The professors were all pretty good, some better than others. The person that ran the counseling program was phenomenal. She took the time to know all of her students and was always available if you needed her."

"Professors are professionals in the field who provide useful examples that compliment class lectures and genuinely care about each student. Small class sizes allow each student to be involved in each class and allows for more in depth conversations during class. Program requirements and length unclear at times but advisement is available."

"I thoroughly enjoyed my graduate school experience. The campus was located in a convenient and safe location; the faculty was friendly, knowledgeable, and readily available; and my cohort of peers was easily to work with and learn amongst. If I had to choose a con of my graduate program, it would be that it included a lot of material that did not directly prepare me for my current career as a school counselor. For instance, it would have been helpful to learn about the school-based computer programs used by school counselors today (Naviance, Powerschool, etc) as well as the processes of 504/I&RS meetings which are critical in the school setting as well."

"This college is very small compared to where i went to bachelors and has some cons because of that. There are not enough options for food at this school. Parking here is a lot easier then other colleges in the area, I never have troubles finding a spot. The program I'm in is very good. I feel like professors work with you and still push you to become a better person. I have learned a lot in my time here so far."

"some of the pros would be many of the faculty have vast knowledge and practice in the field they teach. They have a variety of network opportunities in the field and offer much room for growth and development for each student. Some of the cons would be the cost and social experience on Campus. As many graduate schools are, Caldwell College is too expensive. In addition as a graduate student unable to afford housing on Campus their is limited opportunity to meet new people and with such a small campus their are rarely any common interest among the students in terms of the events held on Campus."

"The benefits of attending Caldwell College for graduate studies are showcased in the small class sizes and small-community atmosphere on campus. Typically, graduate students in the counseling field work closely with a small group of professors, enabling students to form connections and network. The small class sizes also provide an optimal environment for critical discussions and peer feedback on various presentations and topics. Cons of going to a small school for graduate studies would be the limited access to published resources and a small online database selection for research purposes."
