Don't even apply to go to Chowan University they accept anyone! I recommend people go to community college and transfer to their choice university like i did. I stayed at Chowan for one year and that was the worst school year of my life. I had no friends and ate in my room. This school is not worth the price and the headache. They say its a Christian school it the opposite its a party school, the only thing you get in trouble for is saying a bad word. I never felt so unsafe in my life townies can walk on campus and do what ever they want. You go into stores and they follow you. The classes at chowan fill up quick and their not a lot to pick from. The only thing is the class size. The professors act like your in grad school and give you hard assignments.

Yes, people are friendly. But that's about it. A degree from here is worthless. You will end up with students who don't want to do any work, so you don't really learn anything. Most students here only want an easy A, and some are (sorry, but it's true) flat-out stupid! They can't even spell! I feel like I've incurred student loans for no reason here. I am definitely transferring because I want my degree to be from a much better school. By the way, any time anyone asked where I went to school and I said "Chowan," they are always like "what?" Nobody even knows about this school unless they are the locals, but this is a town of less than 4,000, so it's useless!

You pay too much to go to the school. They cover stuff up that happens to students. Dorm are small and have bugs sometimes. People there are not friendly. Not enough classes to pick from and teachers don't know how to teach. The school is money hungary, most of the time you have a payment plan. Your in the middle of no where only have McDonald's and family own businesses. You have have to pay for our own books and don't get a refund check! I recommend that nobody go to this school, cause your going to transfer. The food is also horrible and not a lot of choices.
