I am very proud to be a member of Caldwell's Greek Life. Unfortunately, since we are a small school they're only two sororities and one frat on campus but we work with what we have. We host as many events and fundraisers as possible to raise money for our philanthropies. Although many see us as fake that's because they've never actually gotten to know us. If people see us fighting it's not because we don't like each other it's because we have different opinions on decorations for events. That's what happens when you're in an organization. So I encourage everyone to come out and be part of Greek Life because it has truly changed my life for the better! I love it! Even if you don't want to join just come to the events and support a cause. (:

Really am enjoying myself, and the teachers here aren't bad. Everyone here wants to help you with what ever it is you need. The food isn't that good but there is a cook that tries to make the food good! Academics are really important here and the sports teams are good. But its fune and its a small personal campus.

Caldwell University is an excellent university. It comprises of a friendly bunch of students and staff included. The food is good. The campus housing is great. The advisors are extremely helpful. The available services on the campus ensure the comfort of the students. The professors are easily approachable. The activities on-campus are awesome. The only problem is that student participation is low. Plus, the financial aid is very helpful. I would recommend Caldwell University to anyone.
