What is your overall opinion of this school?

CNU has an incredibly welcoming environment for people of all backgrounds. This is a small, safe, and spirited campus. The staff is very friendly, the students love to be here, and the dining halls are marvelous! We are very serious about involvement as well as being well-rounded in academic learning. There is plenty of study space, and sitting outside on a nice day would suit you just as well. It is an excellent place to learn and grow, and I am proud to be a Captain.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

The atmosphere at Christopher Newport is amazing. As soon as I stepped on campus I knew this was place I would be able to be my nerdy, shy self and people wouldn't make fun of me for it. I feel very safe and welcomed at this school. Everyone is willing and will talk to anyone else they pass or meet. The doors are held open. There is a lot of activity and a lot of things that you can or might want to get involved with.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Christopher Newport University is the perfect place for someone who is looking for a smaller, homey college. CNU is known for many odd things, including the plethora of columns around campus and the perfect manicured and always green Great Lawn, but is also well known for their amazing staff, small class sizes, and the wonderful sense of comradery between students. Whether you are a freshman or alumni, you are a captain and thus part of the family. CNU is a school that focuses on the individual student as well as the university as a whole. it is very hard to become just another name on a roster, even in the biggest of classes. Professors work hard to get to know each student and are always available for extra help or even just as a friend. Additionally, each student is given a Core Advisor during their first year, whom will help them until they receive their major specific advisor junior year. Core Advisors help to significantly simply the processes of choosing classes and are also there to help advise in all other academic aspects. Study abroad and community engagement are strongly encouraged, and the offices dedicated to each are very helpful. Outside of classes, there are hundreds of clubs, inter-mural sports, and all sorts of other activities. You will never be bored on campus. CNU is by far one of the best universities in Virginia and is an absolutely amazing place to call home.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Growing up, I would always go to the CNU games with my grandfather. Now that I’m an upcoming freshman, I’ve never been more excited to step out of my high school life and into a new chapter. Christopher Newport is the absolute best place to start that step in life. The campus is beautiful, and the arts are astounding. I really look forward to starting my life on that campus.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

At first I was not sure I would like it, but out of all the schools I toured this one the only one that made me feel at home. This is my first year at CNU and I could not be happier. There is always something going on and they really try to make everyone fit in. I am very excited to finish out my degree at Christopher Newport. There is something for everyone between clubs and Greek life. The staff at Christopher Newport wants everyone to succeed so they are extremely helpful with anything you need.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

When we first met I was instantly infatuated Little did I know what miseries awaited Like a fly to a flower - this was no mishap Except I discovered a Venus fly trap Your sweet, lovely aroma had lured me in But later that changed to the smell of kingpins Strawberry vapes and exploding meth labs Cockroaches, scabies, and rumors of crabs A PWI, this school needs more culture Apartment residents attacked by vultures The accomplishments of men like MLKJ Unrecognized they are- go to school that day! Though in Virginia where hurricanes hit If school is missed, weekend classes you sit While classes are small, and the food looks appealing Instructors are rude and you're sick after eating A professor admires Justice Brett Kavanaugh "If what I did got out, I'd be fired- HAHA!" They claim they will help you with all of your problems But your quickly abandoned, your heart left to harden If you can help it, go somewhere else If you decide to come here, your spirit will melt

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Christopher Newport is a beautiful school. All academic facilities are impeccable; there is never any trash or dust. The lighting is adequate and there is electronic projectors, white boards and/or promethium boards in all rooms which aids in catering to all type's of learning styles. Many of the professors have the highest degree in their field and demonstrate their passion for their subject through their teaching and eagerness to students who seek additional assistance with understanding concepts. The dining halls have at least one dish available that everyone will like. There are various options being served simultaneously and the second dining hall serves entrees entirely different from the other, on the same day, which students seem to appreciate the choice. There are not as many vegan or vegetarian options as some would probably like. Most dining staff are very friendly; which is a pleasant start to the morning. The overall atmosphere is welcoming and I always feel safe on campus, even walking out of the library at 2 AM back to my dorm, nearby. When coming to Christopher Newport University, it is to be expected that you will be known by name by your professors and have many opportunities to become involved in extracurricular activities.
