Anya - 06/08/2024

It has a welcoming feel and the students and professors are willing to help you learn! The students are excited to welcome the new comers and are always ready to give a helping hand or have a conversation. I especially love the staff though they are welcoming and helpful willing to work out what ever it is you need help with !

Makayla - 04/28/2020

I was a PSEO student threw crown however, all my work was online. Often I would run into issues with professors and other times they would be great. There was an incident where I had been accused of plagiarism for incorrectly sourcing something. Due to being a college and high school student, it was honestly a simple mistake blown way out of proportion. Though I have learned the correct way to source that specific type now.

Kelly - 07/13/2019

Love it

Amanda - 04/01/2019

It was a joke of a college. Applicants did not even need to take the ACT or the SAT to be accepted. The teachers are insufficient, the student body is constantly putting up a façade, and the academics are not equal to the price of admission. I would, however, encourage taking the 1 year Bible degree and/or the TESOL degree if one were to choose to go there.

A person could walk down the hallway and they will know 75{4a082faed443b016e84c6ea63012b481c58f64867aa2dc62fff66e22ad7dff6c} of the people they pass.

  10. What is the stereotype of students at your school? Is this stereotype accurate?

    The stereotype is that all students are religious world-changing preachers and Billy Graham-to-bes, unfortuantely, that's not all of us. We are awesome group of students who believe in a Christ-centered life and the importance of missions and a life that glorifies God. We are not all preachers or Bible majors. However, we believe in relating faith to everything we learn. For example, I am an education major and we learn Christian education thoughts and philosophies.

  12. What are the academics like at your school?

    While Crown is not a very difficult college to be accepted to, a decent amount is required of the students. An honor's program is available, which is quite rigorous, but even most regular classes require about one to three hours of work outside of class for every hour in class, in order to make good grades. While there are always exceptions, most students put a decent amout of effort into their schooling, as Crown is an expensive school, and students need to hang onto their scholarships. The classroom setting is a very positive experience. The professors are very personable, for the most part. For example, every professor I have had since my freshman year knows my name, and it is not an uncommon occurence for a group of students to spend time with any particular professor outside of class time. Many professors are involved with organized campus activities, such as a "professor hide and seek" that takes place at the Mall of America each year. The school requires an internship or practicum for most majors, which is extremely valuable towards gaining practical experience and for finding a career after college. I am an Intercultural Studies major, and wil take a two month practicum overseas, in a country basically of my choice, doing work that will help me understand what is required of people that pursue whatever vocation I will hope to find myself in after graduation.
