What is your overall opinion of this school?

Honestly, the lack of available technology for a cyber security/computer lab is terrible. Anyone can walk in, minimal security. In the parking lot someone was raped, but they have their priority set on parking permits and preventing people from parking in Chestnut Hill College, rather than the safety of the students. If they were busy patrolling to make sure students are safe, than giving out tickets and car boots, their job would be more worth while. The classes, for your degree are completely pointless. I have one class that is important and it is for one day a week for three hours, while on the other hand, I have a probability and statistics class that takes up one hour, three days a week. My time would be better spent learning the fundamentals of digital security and preventative measures of cyber security, in order to be a better professional in my career with the ability to help people. At least, I hope to help people with the skills I have. On top of all that, getting a meeting with my advisor is living hell. I have to work and attend classes. If you are an adult who has to work to support themselves, to survive, this college is not for you. If you do not have money for you books and supplies, let alone transportation, do not go here. Chestnut Hill College is loyal to your money, not your success. If they were loyal to success, they would ensure all assignments would be known and communication between students and professors is solidified. If success is what they want you to have, they would make it easier for students, because they know the worldly turmoil their students are facing. When I say success, I am not talking about the work it entails to obtain a degree. I am speaking of the knowledge you learn in order to obtain that degree. The knowledge that should be there when you graduate and start a profession as a professional. Most people learn hands-on. They learn by being taught. I have spent more than enough money out of my own pocket to receive an education. When I first signed up to join Chestnut Hill College, I thought, "Great! Finally! A college willing to work with my schedule and teach me everything I need to know about being a professional in my desired industry. A college willing to work with me. The professor reviews are good too". However, now I am finding out they lied. They lied about the financial necessities students would need. They lied about their teacher reviews. They lied about the hidden fees that basically almost put me out of house AND home, with no food on the table for months and bills with shut off notices. Their money does not go into ensuring the best education for their students. Their money, the students money, goes into the restructure of the school, landscapers, construction. Lastly, my final point that many would agree, I too asked for financial help to attend Chestnut Hill College. They said I had to pay a deposit. I said I could not afford to pay it as I do not depend on anyone financially and was out of work. I was blessed by someone who believed in me to finish college to pay the deposit. Only to find out another student had that fee waived for her/him for financial instability. When I said I would need help for my books, they offered nothing. When another student claimed he/she needed help with books, they found a, "Griffin Grant" to award him. Then this student and I compared GPA's. I had a higher GPA. Now tell me that is not a slap in the face as I have come from a Community College, 1 and a half years of which I was homeless, worked as hard as I could in order to get a high GPA to get into a school like Chestnut Hill College to starve for a month because I had no food or money, try to work out with other students how I am getting to school and getting my books. That, "Griffin Grant", could have done a lot for me at Chestnut Hill College. I also pondered if it had to do with race or gender seeing as it was a white male and I am a mixed woman, but I dislike making claims about racism, however, if the shoe fits.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I absolutely adore Chestnut Hill College for all that it offers. There is a club/activity for everyone of all races/genders to do! The dean allows her dogs to be therapy dogs which helps out the students during finals week when they become overwhelmed, not many campuses do that.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Overall, the college is great. There is a beautiful nature trail right across the road. The classrooms are small that the smallest class can be from up to 7 students up to 25 students. This allows constant one to one interactions with other students and the professors. The college provides several events to help lessen stress, entertain, and help students make more friends. They also encourage students to start their own clubs. One can easily get a meal from the cafeteria, the McCaffery Cafe, and the Griffens Den. The only struggle with meals is presented when one has a special diet. There is also a struggle with the overnight guest system in my opinion there should be more debate on the terms of the system in place. However, the college is beautiful on its own, especially if you like Harry Potter, the views seem as if taken from the films themselves.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Its a very small school with a huge athletic department. Most of the activities on campus are catered towards athletes, which is nice as one of the hundreds of athletes. The professors are always available and willing to help since class sizes are so small. Housing is limited since all of campus is within a 5 minute walk. Its also really nice having all of the buildings so close to one another. The academic departments (especially the Communications department) motivates their students to get involved and helps them achieve success in their careers. Griffin Nation is a very proud group of students.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

My overall opinion is that the school is highly expensive yet their curriculum is very limited for certain majors. The campus is beautiful but they have very little to offer. I believe they need to focus more in the music program. The school expects us to turn to them for help and they do nothing in return.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

As a returning adult student, I found it a great accelerated program with understanding and available staff. There is a whole team committed to the continuing studies program that is a tremendous resource. The college is just outside the city so has a lot of green spaces but is also close to shops in the artsy Chestnut Hill area. I wish I had found it as a young person.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Chestnut Hill is a very small school but with that fact the school has a warm welcoming feel. It is not too overwhelming but it's not too small that you feel suffocated by the staff. With the Chestnut Hill town so close to the school, it is easy to take a break and catch a breather.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Chestnut Hill College is a good school to attend if you want to have small class sizes and a campus that is not to big or to small. When you first arrive on campus they give a personalized guide to actually what you want to learn and achieve at the college so you can focus on your goal. What I enjoy the most is the friendliness and excitement around the whole campus from students and staff.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I wouldn't exactly say I love it here at Chestnut Hill but I certainly do like it here. I just finished my first year there and everything went well. There are only a couple things i despised about the place and that's the dorm hall Fontbonne and the cafeteria food. Fontbonne has terrible wifi and the community showers were hardly clean. SOmetimes the showers wouldn't be clean for over two months. There was a lot of complaints sent to the RA's but they can only do so much about the problems.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I love my school because it feels like home. I feel safe and happy in the environment created at school. Everyone is very accepting of me and happy to help me achieve to my highest ability. The staff members and teachers are always extremely friendly. I also love the small class sizes because I feel like I'm getting a personalized education.
