Chatham University Top Questions

What are the academics like at your school?

Elise

Chatham University's academics are great as long as you take advantage of what the professors have to offer! All of my professors know me by name and even some of the professors I have never had know my name too! My favorite class at Chatham has definitely been my Organic Chemistry class. I know you are probably disgusted, but trust me - Dr. Lettan makes it so awesome! I was so worried going into the class due to the stereotypical "Organic Chemistry is so hard" comment from every college. Although it was challenging, I took advantage of one-on-one help sessions and any extra help that was offered. Engaging with my professor helped me to succeed. Class participation is usually pretty high unless you have an early morning class. Even then, however, the professors may make you do jumping jacks or something else to wake up! The science program is great at Chatham. Being able to communicate with your professor about difficult topics in a timely fashion definitely helps success. After class, my friends and I have had intellectual conversations in our cafe. I commonly see class topics move outside of the classroom. Sometimes a professor may even tag along and will talk to you about things from class or just normal, every day topics. I wouldn't be surprised if they joined me for lunch or sat down with me in the cafe! Overall, Chatham University provides a well-rounded liberal arts education that is geared toward making you world ready, incorporating both job knowledge and a general appreciation for your field.
