Overall ExperienceWhat's This?

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.
