Cedar Crest is a liberal arts college that offers majors and minors from art to biochemistry to psychology. In addition to traditional areas of study, some of the departments also offer majors that aren't available anywhere else in the area, including neuroscience, art therapy, and genetic engineering. Every student also completes the liberal arts curriculum, but unlike the general education requirements of other colleges, Cedar Crest's liberal arts requirements don't take up the entire first two years. Many students double major or even triple major simply because they don't have to take an exhaustive list of classes unrelated to their majors. Almost everything you need in terms of academics is online. You can register for classes, look up degree requirements, and check your grades. The College email system is the primary method of communication between professors and students outside of class.
Professors generally enjoy working with each other and with students. The College is small, and professors come to Cedar Crest simply to teach. The vast majority of Cedar Crest professors is very invested in the campus community and can even be seen eating lunch in the dining hall. Most professors enjoy talking to students outside of class and are more than willing to offer their time. Each student is assigned an adviser who is a professor in the department of a given major. Your adviser knows which classes are offered when and what requirements you need to fulfill to graduate. And because you will probably have your adviser as a professor, you will be comfortable talking to him or her about your career plans and the goals that you set for yourself throughout your college career. Cedar Crest is very strong academically, and if you can bring dedication and passion to your classwork, then you are more than set to succeed.
