Attending Chatham University has been a blessing. While I can give you negatives (as there are in many schools), I wish to focus more on what you need to know before deciding to attend. For starters, opportunities are widely presented to you on campus, but if you are not a person to take the initiative than Chatham may not be for you. The staff and faculty can only encourage you so much, but you have to take the final step. If you do, you are guaranteed to succeed. Also, when choosing Chatham, you have to realize the class sizes are small and personalized. In the business programs, at least, it is highly group oriented, as Chatham tries to prepare you for real world environment. One thing that Chatham is very good at is teaching its students how to present and offering opportunities to improve for higher scores. While the grades are very important, what you got out of it is more important. Third, the staff and faculty know you by name. They care. Period. If you get involved in dramatics and believe that you can't be respectful, Chatham is not for you. We are a community and, within our peers, a 'sisterhood.' Also, if you are a religiously oriented student or an international student, Chatham is very accepting. We do not press our views onto each other, but teach each other for global understanding. Basically, Chatham is a school for a woman wanting structure and opportunities. It provides you with the ability to be world ready and to really grow into who you are rather than who someone wants you to be. Any opportunities to take place in the social environment can be found within other college campuses in Pittsburgh, so no opportunities are missed. I highly recommend Chatham University to all young women out there.
