4 College Junior

Facilities: It's a beautiful area and the buildings are nice.

5 College Junior

Majors: It is very easy to get into the nursing program right away (as long as you meet the requirements). No waiting around for 9 months for the next available program. That's why I chose Cedar Crest.

College Junior

Majors: Haven't started the program yet.

College Junior

Health & Safety: I can't review this yet.

College Junior

Off-Campus Housing: I don't use off-campus housing for college students.

4 College Junior

Off-Campus Dining: I love Liu's House of Sushi.

3 College Junior

Athletics: I don't know that much about the sports.

3 College Junior

Majors: The science programs have been expanded, but the art programs have been continually cut.

3 College Junior

Majors: It depends on the major...

You have to pay Cedar Crest to complete a Dietetic Internship (required to be Registered Dietician Nutritionist) or Nursing Clinical (to be Registered Nurse).

I don't think you pay Cedar Crest for the Social Work Internship (but you do pay for classes taken during the same year).

3 College Junior

Drug Safety: It's probably average. Many students drink alcohol including minors.

2 College Junior

Campus Housing: One of the dorm buildings is literally 100 years old and has not been fully renovated. Many of the windows in the building do not open and we are only allowed to use one set of doors. Some of the rooms are very small (literally only enough room for a bed and desk).

3 College Junior

Academics: Academics are good. Our professors really know the fields they teach. The small class size means teachers get to know the students and vice versa. The science programs have been expanding and the arts programs have been shrinking, though.

4 College Junior

Off-Campus Housing: Most students live off-campus. It's cheaper than a dorm room, especially if you're sharing the cost with an apartment mate.

3 College Junior

Nightlife: I'm not really involved in Nightlife. Some students like to go to Stonewall, but most of us are very studious.

3 College Junior

Health & Safety: There is only a doctor available two days a week at Health Services. I've always been able to get an appointment, though, or the Director of Health Services is willing to examine me instead.

3 College Junior

Campus Strictness: A lot of students (including underage students) do drink alcohol, especially before exams (this is called Frolic).

There is a limit to the amount of visitors you can have in a month (8 overnights, I think, and only 2 in a row).

Most people don't do illegal drugs, but there are a number of smokers.

3 College Junior

Overall Experience: I chose Cedar Crest because it was small. Small class size means you really get to interact with the professors.

4 College Junior

Transportation: Many students have cars because 75% of the school are commuters.

However, the campus is very small, so it's very easy for students to walk from their dorm to anything else on campus. There is a grocery store, drugstore, frozen yogurt shop, hair salon, and several restaurants literally right across the street. So, residents often walk to that shopping center. There is also a bus stop across the street.

3 College Junior

Scholarships: Transfer students don't receive as much money as freshman students (which is a pain) and don't receive a textbook stipend (like some freshman students).

5 College Junior

Diversity: Cedar Crest has diverse sexualities, religions, etc

2 College Junior

Athletics: We are a division III school. So, athletics is not important. We rarely win any games.

3 College Sophomore

Greek Life: It has its pros and cons

College Sophomore

Campus Housing: I never lived on campus

3 College Sophomore

Majors: The interview process was laid back and enjoyable

4 College Sophomore

Majors: The professors are extremely helpful

Attending Cedar Crest is truly a unique experience. Like any college, there are always aspects of the institution that could be improved, but Cedar Crest provides every student with the opportunity to be a member of a vibrant, diverse community of passionate and empowered women. At Cedar Crest, your classmates are also your friends, and students are really encouraged to actively participate in everything that interests them. You always hear about college being a place to discover who you are and what you want to do with your life and a list of other clichés, but at Cedar Crest, you can really see that happen. 

Students leave Cedar Crest well prepared for their careers and as a part of a  network of Cedar Crest alumnae from across the country who look back at the College as the place where they discovered the field that they're really passionate about or the campus where they began lifelong friendships. Weighing the positive and negative aspects, many students would choose Cedar Crest again. On top of being academically strong, engaged in the surrounding community, and dedicated to providing opportunities for women's leadership, Cedar Crest is just a genuinely fun place to spend your college years.
