Chadron State College Reviews
Student & Graduate Reviews (9)
Chadron State College became my home away from home the moment I stepped onto campus. The small class sizes allowed me to received more focused, explicit instruction. Professors knew me on a first named basis and truly had my best interest at heart throughout my four years at CSC. The education program offered career-applicable opportunities not only during face-to-face instruction, but also through learning and training opportunities in elementary classrooms. They prepared me to be a teacher early on in my education by allowing me to gain classroom experience and learn from high quality teachers before having a classroom of my own. CSC has shaped me into the teacher I am today and I will forever be grateful for each and every individual that had a hand in my educational experience.
I first attended Chadron State College right out of high school for a degree in Hospitality Management through the Family and Consumer Sciences program. Chadron is a beautiful and welcoming town that is easy to familiarize yourself in. I easily built lasting relationships with the personnel at CSC, as well as others in the community. The college had a great work study program that I took part in. I also worked other jobs outside of the college. I would definitely recommend this wonderful college to anyone looking for a solid education in a great little town.
This school made me feel comfortable. The small class sizes really helped me to have on-on-one time with the professors and get to know them personally. I was a student -athlete and the teachers worked well with me to get all my classwork and homework done in a timely manner. With this said, I graduated as a student-athlete with a 4.0 with the help of my professors and coach working together to fit my educational needs. Academics was the number one priority. I learned everything that I needed to know to move onto the next level of my education career in obtaining my Master's degree.
Chadron has one of the best online programs I have experienced. All of my instructors were professional, highly responsive, and always willing to help. I enjoyed all of my classes, but my education classes were the best.
The college is small, and nestled right up against the black hills and Chadron State Park, so it's a beautiful setting and great place to live. I loved the intimate nature of it, as it was a great place to get involved and make friends. I lived in a house with roommates and it was an easy walk to downtown and the great little stores and restaurants. My favorite was a Mexican restaurant and right across the street was the small community movie theater. There weren't a lot of students in each class, which was great for interaction with the teacher and getting a quality education. I also enjoyed driving an hour to Rapid City to go shopping. Chadron is small, so the biggest store is Wal-mart, but there aren't a lot of other shops for necessary items. Rapid City wasn't far away and was great to get in some more shopping or go to a movie at a bigger theater.
This school was great. Small classes so I knew most of my teachers personally. They were always friendly and open door policy for everybody. I wouldn't have picked anywhere else to go!
The small town college atmosphere was comforting and the surrounding landscape was peaceful and serene. Little to no distractions got in the way of my education and with the smaller class sizes, the student to teacher relationship was more intimate and made the learning experience more fun and personal. Would do it again if needed to go back for another degree!
I really enjoyed Chadron State. It is small yes, but they make sure you still get the college experience without draining your pocketbook. CSC is the best choice for a school and I wouldn't have gone anywhere else. I am proud to say I am a CSC Alum!
I love CSC. It is small enough of a school that the faculty actually knows who you are and CARES about you--not just as a student, but as a person. The learning center on campus is infinitely helpful for studying/tutoring, the campus itself is pretty, and it's one of the most affordable state colleges in the country.
