3 College Sophomore

Local Atmosphere: The area has plenty of things to do.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Dining: Depending on the time you arrive

3 College Sophomore

Parking: You have to park far and walk even further.

4 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: It is all very reasonable.

5 College Sophomore

Drug Safety: They do not tolerate it.

5 College Sophomore

Weather: The college follows great procedures when bad weather occurs.

3 College Sophomore

Guys & Girls: Everyone is very nice and very sociable.

College Sophomore

Nightlife: I do not live on campus.

3 College Senior

Facilities: The facilities are nice, but by no means phenomenal. Just adequate.

4 College Senior

Overall Experience: I loved Chestnut Hill College, while there are some small things I would change, overall it was worthwhile. I loved the sense of community and that everyone knew each other. The professors genuinely cared about us, and treated us individuals.

5 College Senior

Majors: As far as I know there are a wide variety of majors, and I am very happy with my choice (Molecular Biology)

4 College Senior

Majors: Admissions was great, I had no problems and was accepted easily.

4 College Senior

Parking: There is usually enough parking on campus by the tennis courts, the parking lot is usually only full during big events. Even then there is always parking up at sugarloaf.

3 College Senior

Campus Dining: Most of the time the food is pretty good with a wide variety, but every one in a while it really sucks. Although it has gradually gotten better over my four years.

3 College Senior

Scholarships: There are some great scholarships available, but their financial aid department is horrible!

5 College Senior

Health & Safety: I think the health and safety aspect is excellent, it's a small school where you know almost everybody, and we all watch out for each other. I feel safe walking around alone at night (and I'm a young woman).

4 College Senior

Greek Life: There is no greek life at Chestnut Hill, which I think is excellent. The last think we need is more cliques.

4 College Senior

Academics: The academics are excellent, and I believe what you will learn at Chestnut HIll will surpass many other schools

3 College Senior

Computers: There is only one small computer lab, which is usually adequate but occasionally fills up during certain times of day. The wifi is patchy and kind of slow, especially depending on where you are on campus

3 College Senior

Nightlife: There really isn't much of a nightlife. If you have a good group of friends, you could throw your own small dorm party very secretly.

4 College Senior

Weather: The weather is usually pretty nice. The summers are hot, but you get the most beautiful falls and springs

3 College Senior

Campus Strictness: One thing everybody should know about the school is that it is very strict. There are strict visitation policies reguarding who you can have in your building and when, and each visiter needs to be signed in. You can't have a friend overnight unless your request is approved several days in advance. Drinking and drugs are hard to get away with, so if you plan on doing either you will need to be very quiet and secretive.

Parking is also difficult, you aren't allowed to have a car on campus until junior year. If you do, you will get ticketed, and maybe towed (I was).

4 College Senior

Off-Campus Dining: There are a ton of local small restaurants, chains and grocery stores that allow you to access almost any type of food you can imagine. My favorite was a sushi place called Osaka a few miles from campus. There are also a lot of places that deliver, and a small diner directly across from the campus

3 College Senior

Off-Campus Housing: While there is off campus housing, it's usually very very expensive due to the area

4 College Senior

Transportation: There are campus shuttles that run regularly around campus and town every fifteen minutes and are very easy to use. There are also shuttles that run to nearby shopping centers on weekends and certain days, and shuttles that run to the airport near breaks. If there is somewhere you need to go in an emergency, you can always find a campus service to take you.

Having a car is nice, but definitely not needed.

Because the school is right outside of Philadelphia, there is a ton of public transportation nearby that can get you anywhere you can think of!
