5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: It's really small and feels like home. I'm from the eastern shore and have tons of family in Chesterton, so I'm no stranger to the area or how the people are in it. The food is good and the campus is beautiful.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: My school has such a welcoming environment, it felt like home the first weekend on campus. Upperclassmen and underclassmen alike are encouraged to meet new people and try new things throughout their entire career at my school, not just their freshman year. My school is unique because of its tight knit community. The small class sizes allow you to really get to know your professors, and build special one-on-one relationships with them, which can help down the road when it's time for letters of recommendation or networking. Furthermore, school pride is overflowing at my college. Despite being a smaller division 3 school, sporting events are always packed to the brim with fans. The school also runs several extracurricular programs during the summer and winter breaks that take students to every place imaginable, from spending time with the Native American peoples in Navajo Nation to building schools for children in Tanzania. If I could go back and do everything all over again, I would choose my school a thousand times over. It's the perfect place for me.

Athletics: The trainers are some of the best around and the JFC has great accommodations for athletes and non athletes, everything in the gym is open to all of the students and easy to access

4 College Freshman

Greek Life: Greeks are great people, they aren't cliquey or rude to non greeks, everyone has friends outside of their chapter and collaborate with other organizations on campus to plan events and support the school

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: I'm not sure how the pricing is, but my friends who live in town are really happy with living off campus

4 College Freshman

Party Scene: The parties are pretty great. Especially the ones following homecoming and birthday ball.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: The spots in downtown Chestertown are the best. Dominos is the only late night option

4 College Freshman

Scholarships: My family and I met with a person from finical aid and they broke down everything we had to do. She also offered to meet with me later in the year to help renew scholarships for the following year!

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: The freshman dorms are alright, the best place in the following years is to be is in Chester or Sass.

4 College Freshman

Greek Life: Great people. Great parties. Great fun.

4 College Freshman

Athletics: The JFC is great! WAC seems dedicated to sports but we don't do the best. We do well though I guess!

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: I believe it is pretty expensive but good place to live.

5 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: I like the late night hours.

5 College Freshman

Administration: I love the college. I don't know much about administration but there is a new president and I have heard great things!

5 College Freshman

Scholarships: They were extremely helpful and it went quickly and smoothly

4 College Freshman

Campus Food: I enjoy it but it could always be better! There is great variety at all times. The pasta can be improved.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: It really depends on where you set up shop. Honestly.

Locals don't take too kindly to partying on Washington Avenue, Mount Vernon, or Kent Circle, which are the only "good" neighborhoods next to campus. You could try your luck closer to High Street, but you're trading square-footage and convenience for a more intimate space further from campus. You could also try across Washington Avenue on Philosopher's Terrace, or any of the neighborhoods over there, but again, you're trading away convenience for a bit more treacherous of a walk, crossing several busy roads on the way to campus. Whatever floats your boat!

Mount Vernon, Kent Circle, and W Campus Avenue have scarce parallel parking, and driveways are not a guarantee. Washington Avenue is better for parking. You can also just leave your car on-campus if you can't find parking close to your housing.

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: Depending on where you go. Plaza Tapatia, Procolino's, Fish Whistle, Luisa's, China House, and Lemon Leaf are all worth it. Domino's is the only late night option after campus dining services close up. There's a Rita's Italian Ice, a smoothie shop, and an ice cream shop called The Freeze all within walking distance from anywhere on campus. Also within walking distance is a to-die-for sub shop in C-Town Liquors. It's not as good as it used to be, but it's still the best sub shop for miles on the Eastern Shore. Downtown on High Street, you can get hand-scooped ice cream at Stam's Drug Store, right in walking distance of Fish Whistle, Lemon Leaf, and a short hike from the college boat house and waterfront.

Experimentation is a must, and highly encouraged!

4 College Freshman

Administration: No real comments. Officers are very helpful, and follow up on all concerns.

5 College Freshman

Scholarships: Write a good app. essay for the merit scholarship and actually talk face to face with financial aid for the rest. They will work WITH you! Have a campus job? Ask about federal work study. Already have one FWS job, but have another campus job that isn't FWS? Talk to Natalie Story and she'll set you up with more FWS dollars to spread to the other job. It's great!

4 College Freshman

Campus Food: Martha's is great, Mondo's is missed, Create is passable, Dining Hall is hit or miss, Sophie Kerr Cafe is minimal, and Java George is great for grab and go.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: There is a large spectrum. There is some great, and some horrible. However, all residence halls will be improved in the coming years, so this 3-star will very soon be a 5-star. Keep that in mind!
