The students and faculty make the hard things worth it. Cedar Crest has always challenged me, yet despite all of my struggling, I am still able to thrive in my personal and work life. The food can improve, for sure. I'm not here to spill tea, but my honest review is that the way the students and staff are treated can change. I spoke to some of the cleaners and food management; they are overworked. It seems that is the case in all major institutions but at such a well-known school, one would expect more respect for their workers.
Cedar Crest College is a good college. The classes are small, and you have the ability to really get to know your professors. There is a lot to do on campus from clubs to sports to community service. The food isn't great but it could be worse. The best part of Cedar Crest College is that if you are in good financial and academic standing, then in your sophomore year, you can travel abroad for free during spring break. My class is traveling to Athens, Greece for the week.
I love Cedar Crest!!! This school is great! The campus is beautiful and there are plenty of things to do to get involved. Our professors are wonderful and most have Ph.D.'s in each of their fields. Sorry boys, only men in the Nursing field are welcome at night. This is a girls campus. The food is good and I have not met a person yet that wasn't nice or pleasant. It reminds me of a little town from years ago!! Again, I love Cedar Crest and would recommend this school to any girl out there. Oh, the classes are small which makes it easier to approach studies and extracurricular activities!! There is so much to do on campus!!! Please, take it from me, Cedar Crest Rocks!!!
Cedar Crest college is my second home. The environment is beautiful along with it's long history from 1867. It's a small, quiet campus, but it's a great school to focus on your work. The class size is small, which I like because the professors will get to know you. The professors are great. They are available after class, in their office hours, and will reply to your email as fast at they can. Tutoring is available in the library all the time, but getting together with a group of students for a study hour is what I prefer. Everyone here is very friendly and welcoming. It was a very easy transition from leaving home to moving here. Also, there is always something to do. From bingo to trunk or treat, there is also many free fun trips. Cedar Crest offers many opportunities. There is hundreds of clubs, which you can even make one yourself. Also, the sports here look really fun and being on a team here would be a dream come true. Lastly, the academics here reach for the stars. I am an intended nursin major, which their program here is one of best In the state and country. This school even has a sophomore expedition every year and my class will be going to London next year! Cedar Crest is an amazing school and I am glad that I am here.

When I was deciding on a college, I knew that wherever I went would need to have the major I in which was interested It limited my options a bit, and I ultimately chose the school from my list of "major-friendly colleges" that I was pretty confident would accept me. It seemed like the most practical decision I could make.
One of the most important lessons after I arrived at college is that a lot of other students had chosen our school for similar reasons. Many of us ended up discontent with our college experience and/or transferred to another college or university, as we realized that, outside of the majors we had wanted, it really was not a good fit at all.
My best advice for anyone looking to attend college is to take your time observing the actual campus community and see if it would be enough to keep you happy even without your current major of choice. Even if there are other campuses nearby, it will still make a huge difference in your college experience if you don't have anything but academics to keep you at your own school.
My classmates are extremely liberal, while I am very conservative. That's something that I struggle with sometimes, but they're friendly and fun to talk to. I've made some good friends who i will hopefully remain close to for many years to come. My classmates are intelligent, and they really want to succeed and do well. They are good leaders who are self-confident and want to make a difference in the world.
I like that it is small and the teachers get to know you personally.
The school is disorganized, pricey, dead on weekends, too focused on the sciences, and filled with feminine drama.
My school is great for those not ready to go to college yet.
Anyone who is conservative, poor, male, lazy, partygoer, drunk, careless, or environmentally unfriendly should not attend.
It's an all girl school, so if you're a girl, you've got a leg up. However, some men also attend. Other than that, anyone can attend.
Cedar Crest is best known for its strong Biological Sciences department. From the very beginning of a freshman student's education in this field of study, she (or he, sometimes) will participate in a small research project in the spring semester of the first year. Students are also encouraged to continue researching their own interests through work on a thesis.
The professors are always so concerned about you, not including your grades. They really want to make sure that your life as a whole is going well, and are a great shoulder to lean on if family, friends, or life in general is just driving you up the wall. Our president is also a phenomenal woman - she's extremely involved in campus life, holds office hours ever two weeks for students to come talk to her, and really cares about making the campus the best it can be.
They are a very up to date with technology for their nursing students. The college teaches and tests its nursing students from the very beginning just like the NCLEX exam. So when taking the test to get their license after graduation the students know what to expect. Cedar Crest College has a pass rate of almost 93% for the NCLEX which is a very high rate. I turned down scholarships from other colleges to go here because they are rated so high.
Since they are a very good nursing college there is no room for slackers. They make you go through a lot of things that other colleges do not. For example I had to take extra Statistics and Chemistry classes to make up the credits for my classes I already had, because they were not equivalent. I also had to take the TEAS exam, which is not required at other schools. There pass rate is high, because only the most dedicated students make it to the end.
I wish that I would have known how hard it was to be so far from home. I also wish I would have known what I was getting myself into. This school is difficult, however, it is worth it.
Very warm and nurturing environment.
