4 College Junior

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

4 College Sophomore

Facilities: Cedar Crest is an arboretum and that maintenance staff takes great care of our campus scenery. We are located next to Cedar Beach Park with its walking path, river, and playground down the road.

Cedar Crest is an all-women's campus and greatly promotes female leadership and takes pride in its students.

3 College Sophomore

Facilities: It is nothing out of the ordinary, usually pretty quiet and the events are quaint to say the least. The library system is very efficient.

3 College Sophomore

Facilities: There is nothing truly unique about the school except for their variety of majors and that they will design a program for you to pursue according to your interests.

3 College Freshman

Facilities: There are many events on campus, including weekends that if you want to go to them you can. However, life is nice and quiet usually.

The campus is impeccably maintained. All of the buildings, new and old, are kept in great condition. Classrooms, hallways, and other campus spaces are always clean and look like new. Maintenance and repairs are always completed promptly.

Outdoor spaces are beautifully landscaped. As soon as the weather starts to get warm in the spring, the grounds staff is out planting flowers, clipping shrubs, or cleaning fallen flower petals from the sidewalk. The campus is really beautiful, and the maintenance staff takes pride in keeping it that way.
