4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: There are many places off campus that are that people order from or get a ride to. It's decent, and people rarely ever complain.

4 College Freshman

Parking: I never really hear of people complaining about parking.

3 College Freshman

Transportation: There are public transportation available, but i haven't heard of campus-provided transportation. A lot of the people i know rely on friends who have a car to get to places in town.

2 College Freshman

Health & Safety: There were people getting things stolen from their rooms this past semester, and the Health Center is barely ever open. It's a shame that students have to pay a fee for their services when they're not even available that often.

1 College Freshman

Scholarships: Being a freshman I knew nothing and the school did not help that struggle. I was left to figure a lot of things out on my own and the financial aid i received helped, but my remaining balance is ridiculous! The payments i am expected to make monthly are impossible. There aren't many if any available scholarships offered to/for me.

3 College Freshman

Nightlife: There are parties on campus, but they often end soon because people are scared of getting caught. Sometimes even they do get caught.

3 College Freshman

Campus Dining: There is always food, but the options aren't that great. There's just about always the same things. There aren't really any healthy options.

3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: My experience has been okay, my school has its up and downs. I had some great experiences like sporting events. Cheyney plays top rank divison ll schools and I love the teachers there. Its great having to know some professor personally to help you in school. I think will be great if they change a couple things. They should fix the residential dorms there, they are pretty old and need adjustment. Also the athletics facilities can be fixed up to make a better atmosphere. Overall I don't think I would choose it again, but I don't regret anything I do so I can adjust to it.

4 College Freshman

Computers: Has numerous computer labs and excellent network

3 College Freshman

Weather: My school doesn't affect my campus experience.

1 College Senior

Off-Campus Housing: There is barely any off - camping housing located around campus. No apartments, barely any houses, just road and mansions which I definitely can not afford. Most students either live on campus or commute back and forth from home either via bus or car. A lot of Cheyneys' students commute because the school is so close to Philadelphia where a lot of the students attending lives.

3 College Senior

Weather: Campus weather doesn't play a major role on my campus experience, plus my school isn't that far from my home so the weather is pretty much the same as it back home. Its a little colder up school though because we are closer to the mountains.

2 College Senior

Athletics: Athletic facilities and equipment are old on my campus, also there isn't much school spirit because we never win. Also I believe a lot of funding is being spent on other thing besides athletic facilities because they haven't changed since my freshman year and I am now about to be a senior.

3 College Senior

Computers: The computers on Cheyney campus are somewhat reliable we have up too four computer labs on campus and two of those contain mac desktops for graphic design majors and people with graphic design classes

1 College Junior

Guys & Girls: Most of the guys and girls on campus are so worried about themselves and having little cliques that they tend to figure about the real reason they are there. There are some guys and girls on campus that are up lifting and are actually there for education.

3 College Senior

Academics: I am a stem student. My major is Biology. We have good research doctors at our school, but most students want to get into the medical field. So students do not do extra to help improve the department

Overall ExperienceWhat's This?

After numerous administrative changes, many students are not pleased with the disorganization of the school. With all of the adjustments in some of the major departments to meet Pennsylvania State guidelines, a lot of information is getting mixed up and disorganized. Student financial aid is being processed a lot slower than it should be, and scholarship money is being disbursed at an alarmingly slow rate. Some students experience having a "stop" placed on their account because the system says they owe money, even though they are attending under Keystone Scholarship, which is a full-ride scholarship. The corrections are made, but it takes a long time and students often have to do legwork to ensure that it gets done.

A lot of students complain about these conditions, and it is not uncommon to see a petition started or for the student government to protest against the administration's decisions involving what to do with tuition money. At Cheyney, there is a strong sense that the students hold the most power on campus—which should be true for any college—and they are not afraid to use this power.
