Where do I begin? I graduated from this
Where do I begin? I graduated from this school right before its University accreditation. The politics of which really have no place in my comments here. I want to say to all the prospective students out there reading this Chatham is WAY TOO EXPENSIVE and not a great education! The students are very dull and mediocre. The curriculum has been dumbed down over the years to match pace with the need to occupy classrooms with any warm body that will sign for the student loans to do so. Admissions are wide open for anyone, so if you are desperate for that B.A. or B.S. getting in will be no problem. But the exceedingly high cost is ridiculous: there's no way even the other homophobic, conservative Christian comments on this board would even tell you otherwise. If even those people say its not a good education and I would likely be contrary to anything those students say. Well thanks to this website finally leftist activists and right wing conservative Christian students have one thing common: we both are trying to tell you this school is not a good one.

Other than making friends with a few caringQuite Bright
Other than making friends with a few caring professors, and learning some valuable skills my experience at Chatham was terrible! I was told so many great things about Chatham before entering, and upon my first few visits to Chatham most people were friendly. But as time passed on quite honestly no one seems to give a damn, especially once you're a senior. Its like well, you're already here, paying tuition, we don't have to keep trying to make your experience a good one. The university is terribly unorganized and it is difficult to find out information, on graduation, tutorial, and internship procedures. There is a number of professors that are to say the the least, terrible, arrogant and self centered, and make you feel like you're nothing but a waste of their time. Stay away from applying for a degree in science and business fields, you can get a better experience elsewhere.

In general the school courts mediocrity over excellence.Quite BrightInterior Design
In general the school courts mediocrity over excellence. They are more focussed upon building up numbers of new students than satisfactorily serving the students already attending by promoting quality programs or maintaining the resources they provide. There is a lot of hype and little to back up that hype. They are supposedly big on sustainability but they have policies that waste greater amounts of paper than other schools, and large amounts of food - but are not open to changing these systems in the name of sustainability.
