3 College Junior

Off-Campus Dining: There are tons of student discounts at local food places, but most of them are just fast food.

2 College Junior

Off-Campus Housing: The off campus housing lies in very dangerous areas with lots of crime. Living on campus is also required for anyone under 22, unless they live with their parents.

4 College Junior

Facilities: The campus has been improving a lot. They have modernized a large amount of buildings.

4 College Junior

Campus Strictness: Cairn is very strict and often takes action regarding any behavior that does not meet codes of conduct.

College Junior

Greek Life: There are no sororities on campus. The different dorms sort of act similar to sororities minus the drinking and hazing.

College Junior

Nightlife: Drinking isn't allowed under covenant for the university even for students who are of age.

4 College Junior

Local Atmosphere: I don't mind it. There's enough to do, you just have to know about local attractions.

3 College Junior

Campus Dining: The dining commons have definitely improved in recent years but are still lacking in some areas due to insufficient funding.

4 College Junior

Majors: There is very little required for most undergraduate programs other than an average GPA and SAT score. But getting accepted into Graduate programs does require at least a 3.0 GPA.

5 College Junior

Majors: The Business program is awesome. Most of the professors are experienced professionals who offer real life examples to teach students about approaching different issues.

2 College Sophomore

Scholarships: It's definitely a hassle. I like the school but it is way too expensive and I am not receiving that much money from FAFSA as it is. I barely was able to make it through my first year and am a little worried about this upcoming semester. If your late with a payment by a day, everything is on hold on your account until you pay the school. I wasn't able to eat or have access to my dorm for 2 weeks.

Campus Dining: The Food is not that bad at the school. They Offer a wide variety literally so everyone has a chance to have whatever they liked. Sometimes the food could be better prepared especially on weekends.

Local Atmosphere: Honestly It could be better. If you really want to have fun, You'll have to catch the bus or train on a hour ride into the City of Philadelphia to really have some fun.

Off-Campus Dining: Honestly, there is nothing but fast food chain and sit down restaurants like Mcdonald's and Denny's and Ruby Tuesday near my school and yet, everyone just eats Chik-Fil-A non stop

Guys & Girls: I currently attend a private christian college so that being said, everyone is for the most part very religious. Don't underestimate that for boring and meek because everyone seems to have a nice time here. Everyone is very sociable and approachable. the biggest interest surprisingly amongst the guys and girls is that a huge majority loves Duck Dynasty. I've personally never seen it but they love it. Everyone is for the most part very down to earth and laid back and it shows in the way the dress as well. Most people here tend to get into relationships fast, many actually go on to get married before they even graduate.

Campus Housing: The Campus Housing Life at Cairn University is really Great. Its in very close proximity to the different buildings including the Gym and cafeteria. The RA's make it very enjoyable as well because they all are so interactive with their fellow wing mates and their are always activities going on at the different dormitories. Even the washers and dryers are very accessible and up to date. All together I have no complaints dorm life is pretty fun here!!!

Diversity: Being a part of the minority race on campus is not too bad. The vast majority of Cairn students are Caucasian. Most people are interested in other people's cultures. However, there is a lot of cultural ignorance here. It seems as if high schools are not doing a great job educating Caucasians on the differences and major points of any international culture. Every week, I would find myself teaching my culture. I came from a diverse community that already understood my culture. Anyways, Cairn is not ethnically diverse but their students and faculty have an interest in getting to know people of other ethnic backgrounds.

Parking: The permit prices are lower compared to every university I've visited. Fines will add up and Security is quick to dish out those fines. Sometimes it doesn't help to appeal a ticket because they will rarely overturn it. You don't necessarily need a car on campus. However, if you desire to venture off, a car or bike is necessary.

4 College Senior

Computers: Availability is great! The network tends to crash. BEWARE!

4 College Senior

Scholarships: They are so nice and easy to work with. On the real, tell them your need and they will try their absolute best to help you.

3 College Senior

Campus Strictness: For a campus with a surplus of parking, they sure do give out many tickets to people who decide to park elsewhere. More often than not, each parking lot, other than Heritage Halls', is fairly spacious. --- It's a conservative school, so drugs, alcohol, parties, dancing and profanity are things to walk on eggshells with because you'll probably get in serious trouble for all of these.

Health & Safety: Haven't heard of anything remotely bad happening in the last 5 years. Campus is very, very safe.

4 College Senior

Campus Housing: I'd suggest living in Heritage for your first year or so, then moving on to Manor for a year or so, then finishing up at Penndel Apartments. As you mature and seek independence, you're going to want to get off of main campus. Penndel and Manor are old and you'll be able to notice that right away. Heritage is newer and modern.
