My opinion of Chestnut Hill College is that it is the platonic ideal of a major league college. It provides the students a chance to get involved and to understand the world around them in a safe and lively environment. The campus is spacious and lovely and my fellow students are a pleasure to be around.
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.
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.
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.

Hey, here is some advice about college life and the transition into freshman year. When you go out to parties, make sure you go with friends, and keep an eye out for each other, and don't put your cup down. When you schedule for classes, look up the requirements for your major so you don't miss out! Don't lend out all your quarters to be nice the first week of school, you'll need them! Get active, and join clubs or sports, it helps you meet people and can be fun! Do not go boy crazy, and party all the time, when you come back next year, everyone will think you're the party girl. Getting your classes out of the way in the morning helps to free up your schedule instead of spreading them out through the day. Have fun and be safe! Leave the high school drama in high school!
My school is filled with very friendly people.
The students in the classes how eachother learn about the different topics within the course. Individuals take the courses because they are required for their major and the student may have an interest in the topic.
I wish I knew more about the staff and the involvement they have with the students.
The professors are really cool and knowledgeable, and the support staff care about the students a lot.
person that enjoys small classes, with intentive teachers, can keep themself occupied, wants to play college sports
I feel that the worst thing about my school was the limited supportive services available to accelerated students.
It isn't. It's known for not really being known. Particularly, if someone does recognize the name, the first thing that comes out of their mouth is a comment about it being an all-girls school and nothing else, not even where it is (Philadelphia). Chestnut Hill hasn't been an all girls school for well over five years now and that just goes to show how it has done nothing to make a name for itself, atleast positively.
It is in a quiet historical rich neighborhood inside the city of Philadelphia.
The student to teacher ratio is only 11:1 so unlike most state schools you should expect small class sizes and and one-on-one attention with your professors. The downfall- your professors will know when your not in class. The benefit- teachers are always willing to help with anything regardless of if its for their class, another class, or something not even school related. They will also get to know you on a more personal level, which helps makes letters of recommendation more personal for any type of grad school you may think about applying to later on. Also, if you decide to come to CHC don't be surprised if you end up eating lunch with a professor in the dining hall or arrive at a meeting and find an assortment of teas and snacks has been laid out for you to enjoy.
To be completely honest, I could not be more impressed with the college I chose. CHC continuously goes beyond my expectations of what a college should entail, and I could not have made a better selection as to which college to attend. In regards to my favorite things about this college, I have narrowed it down to three major parts. For starters, I love the fact that our student-to-teacher ratio is 11:1. This means that in class, when something doesn't make sense and I raise my hand, I will be called upon within a matter of seconds. I hear my friends from other universities talk about the difficulties that they have had with classes in which they were one student out of a couple hundred, and it makes me appreciate this small ratio even more. The sizes of our campus, student, and faculty body are at the perfect level. The new social room is another thing I love, because I am a commuter, and it is a calm and quiet place to sit and relax in between classes, without having to walk over to the library. Also, they started serving coffee and snacks in the social room, which means I can even grab a bite to eat before my classes start. The new fitness center is another spot I love about our campus. I get a lift and run in every day, and the new fitness center has the equipment to accommodate everyone's workout style. From simple workouts to more complex lifting, you will be able to get a workout in the new fitness center. I truly am enjoying my college experience here at CHC.
My school looks like its a castle. It is located on beautiful property, the people are really nice and its close to the city.
Typically a Chestnut Hill student is stereotyped as being extremely well rounded. Most students in the community are involved in several different things including sports, clubs, and other groups.
A student who wants small classroom sizes, and a school that is close nit in the student body.
Our school has an endless amount of activities that go on, so I will mention a few for the sake of this response. For athletes, all of our teams (with the exception of the men's lacrosse team) compete in the Central Atlantic Collegiate Conference, or the CACC for short. A few of the men's sports include: baseball, soccer, and basketball. A few women's sports include: basketball, volleyball, and softball. If you are more into the arts, our college puts on student-run plays and musicals. Along with this, there are also orchestra and choir concerts. Our school also participates in competitive Quidditch. A special event is held on our campus as schools from up and down the east coast come to our college to compete in the sport. Also, with the Metroplex and Plymouth Meeting Mall nearby, students always have something to do. Our school even sponsors trips to places such as Hershey Park, Broadway, and Phillies games, to name a few. The tickets are cheap, but the fun is endless.
I'm an education major here at CHC, so I'm currently in my Practicum semester. This means that for one of my classes I get to go to an elementary school in the area and observe and teach lessons. This is really cool and a really great experience. They always say that you never know how much or how little you're going to like teaching until you get in front of the classroom and CHC's practicum class allows you to get that experience! I'm also taking a Methods class in which we talk about different methods of teaching. I am, of course going to be using a lot of these strategies in the future. In addition to these classes I'm taking a Shakespeare class, we read the plays, watch the movies, and in terpret some scenes on our own. It's a pretty good class, and Shakespeare is always a classic.
The most frustrating thing is the financial aid/student accounts office.
Chestnut Hill College does not have any Greek life. The only things that can be associated with Greek life are our Honor Societies, named with Greek letters (Psi Chi - Psychology Honors Society, Alpha Lambda Delta - Freshmen Honor Society, etc.) We believe in inclusivity and a holistic education. CHC's philosophy is that students should not be excluded from joining any activity, club, or organization that they wish to.
Beautiful Fairmount park is right across from our College campus! It is a beautiful place to ride your bike (we have a bike share system, so you can rent a bike with your CHC school ID) or just take a walk with your friends on a nice day. I think it is the most beautiful in the Fall with all the leaves changing and in the winter with the snow on the banks of the creek!
In the Rotunda of St. Joseph's hall, there are small cubby areas on each side in the towers. They have tables, chairs, outlets for your labtop, large windows for fresh air, heaters for the winter, and a great, inspiring view that is really motivating when you're trying to write a 15-page paper...eek!
