1 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: Students are required to live on campus for 3 years, and all 4 years if they want to keep a scholarship. I extremely dislike the policy and disagree with its implementation

3 College Freshman

Party Scene: There are parties if someone wants to find them, it is not difficult. The perception that CNU is not a "party school" is mostly wrong, most people I know of party on weekends and holidays. It is also easy to avoid parties if one does not want to go to them

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: There is a lot of options for off-campus food. Many different places are within close driving distance and there are several within close walking distance when campus food becomes tiring to eat

2 College Freshman

Administration: The amount of restrictions that administration puts on students is approaching ridiculous. There is very little personal freedom in the rules, and everything is done so the school can look good on paper with good numbers

5 College Freshman

Scholarships: I applied for financial aid and received it in a timely and effective manner from the school

4 College Freshman

Campus Food: The food is tasty and while it can be repetitive is not too bad. The lack of control we have over our swipes is frustrating, there is no flexibility in the system. Few Dining Dollars are actually given with the plan

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: The buildings at CNU are absolutely beautiful, and the dorms and rooms are designed very well. However, everything that comes with the rooms is a big downside. Rules are strictly enforced and student situations are rarely taken into account. Room and Board is very expensive comparatively, and the housing lottery is very poorly done and many students ended up not getting appropriate housing next year. Finally, their three year on-campus living policy is extremely frustrating for students who want to move out. The dorms are beautiful, but the policies are a big downside

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: There are some good places you just have to look and find them yourself

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: There are many different options to choose from when you are tired of dinning hall.

3 College Freshman

Administration: I haven't had many encounters with administration but it seems to be going well.

4 College Freshman

Scholarships: I was capable of receiving many scholarships but I didn't take advantage of them. They are good about getting scholarship to their students.

3 College Freshman

Campus Food: They get repetitive and sometimes things aren't the best or most healthy but there are usually plenty of options you can find something you like.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: The residence halls are fantastic! The people who work in them are just as wonderful. The housing lottery, on the other hand is not as great. As a former PLP member and knowing people on PLP I know that it doesn't help as much as they portray it to.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: I don't know much about the off campus housing, but I do have some friends that used to live off campus. I went there once and it was pretty dirty. I would rather live on campus.

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: I love the restaurants off campus. I don't go very often, but they are great for special occasions!

4 College Freshman

Administration: I thought the administration was great. I never had any problems, and they seemed to help whenever I needed help.

3 College Freshman

Scholarships: CNU does not give much financial aid because it is such a small school. I hope to get more in the next few years.

4 College Freshman

Campus Food: I loved Regattas! The Commons is not great, but it is decent. I also love the dining dollars to use on Chick Fil A! Overall, it was a great dining experience.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: I really enjoyed the housing I had Freshman year. I loved the social atmosphere and all of the people in my hall. My housing complex was so close to classes and restaurants. However, I did not have very much space in my room compared to other colleges. It was still a great experience.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: The campus is beautiful, spacious, and clean. However there are many flaws with their housing lottery and their registration process for classes.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: Places are ok. I always try the different Italian places that deliver lol

4 College Freshman

Party Scene: Its fun, and you genially feel safe, but stuff can happen you just have to trust who youre with.

5 College Freshman

Administration: Its very strict, pretty annoying. Honor code is great though, don't have to worry of people stealing. The dry campus part sucks, but there's always parties if youre looking for them.

5 College Freshman

Scholarships: It went pretty smoothly for me

3 College Freshman

Campus Food: Food just gets tiring after having the same stuff. Its not terrible, but sometimes it seems that way lol
