I felt very welcomed from both students and faculty

During my first year at Chatham, I had a very good experience. The athletics are top-notch, the students are kind and caring, and the majority of the professors are very knowledgeable and helpful. I love how the Chatham community tries its best to make each and every student feel inclusive and accepted. I think that this is very important for all young adults and it will allow them to enjoy their college experience more.

Chatham is a great college and the professors and staff are personable. The campus is beautiful and rich in history, but the culture is changing to be more diverse.
