Students under 21 are not allowed to live off campus unless they are living with their parents. The school is big on students living on campus so they don't really mention much about living off campus. There are some flyers around campus showing some off campus options but the school does not go into detail so students are forced to look into it themselves. I don't really know much about this topic because I live on campus.
There really is not a lot to do at night. Because it is a Christian school people don't really go to parties or bars and things like that. Some students go out partying but it is not really a big crowd. There is also not a lot to do in the area especially if someone does not have a car so if a person wants to go out on a Friday night some options include bowling, movies, or going out to eat.
My favorite sport is basketball and basketball season was my favorite part of the year. I looked forward to when we had home games and I was a big supporter. Our basketball team did not win a lot of games but the gymnasium was always packed with screaming fans. Our school is big on school spirit, students are always going to volleyball, soccer, basketball, and baseball games. Our girls soccer team won a lot of championships and they worked very well together as a team. People from different teams would always be seen hanging out together.
When it is cold it is incredibly unpleasant walking to classes. The cafeteria is in a different building than my classes so sometimes I skip breakfast and dinner in order to escape the cold. In that way my experience during the winter has been disagreeable because I've gone hungry multiple times. During early fall and spring I love being at school. My campus is incredibly beautiful and I really enjoy seeing students sitting by the pond or playing frisbee-it feels more like a community when I see everyone outside.
Being a social worker is definitely not for everyone, it is very rigorous and before you get accepted into the program you have to go through specific clearances. You have to reviewed by the entire social work faculty in order to make sure you are good for the job. I believe that everything you do as a student definitely prepares you for being a social worker in the real world. Every student is required to participate in a field trip where they will experience what it is like to be homeless and living in the Philadelphia area. The courses are very interactive, for instance the class I am taking now is called Social Work Experience and it is helping me understand every aspect of being a social worker, both positive and negative. Students are also required to do one day and four day placement at real agencies. Many students end up getting jobs at these agencies and quite a number of agencies specifically request for social workers from Cairn University. Most students who graduate get a job in the field right away.
Sorry, there are no reviews.
