4 College Freshman

Local Atmosphere: campus is in a good location

4 Recent Alumnus

Local Atmosphere: The area is beautiful, quiet, and pretty charming. Access to other activities could be available if you are willing to travel a little. Overall the atmosphere is great.

4 College Sophomore

Local Atmosphere: The people who live in the Chestnut Hill area are very friendly towards the students. There is public transportation that I a student can take to get to the malls if he or she does not drive. The malls that are fairly close are: King of Prussia, Cherry Hill, and Franklin Mills.

3 College Sophomore

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

4 College Senior

Local Atmosphere: The town of Chestnut Hill is an adorable little hipster-y town with lots of cute coffee houses and small businesses. It's a great place to go out and get brunch or take a walk, but not a vibrant college town by any means. However Philadelphia is about 10 miles away and easily accessible by train, bus or car, so there's always something to do in the city!
