If you are a prospective student, I would be very cautious about attending CNU. CNU is almost a real life infomercial the way they market its school, and contrary to other schools that are actually good and can let its reputation speak for itself, CNU raves about amazing things at the school when its just not true. Its no surprise that huge amount of students transfer out of CNU each year, its because CNU is nothing like its advertised.

CNU students are basically apathetic and have no school spirit. This is because most students go here because it is their safety school and they didnt get in anywhere else. This is also evident on the weekends when tons of people pack up and leave. CNU is pretty boring on weekends so people go home or to other colleges where you can actually have fun.

CNU is a dry campus, and their university police (read: Rent-a-cop police) are on powertrips, and love to get students busted. CNU makes second year students live ON CAMPUS, which is stupid, especially because my friends at other schools can live off campus. This is probably because CNU loves to bust people, and their dry campus rules apply to sophomores who must live on campus.

Its pretty simple, CNU is an average school. Its not nearly as good as the major universities in Virginia, and it would not be wise to choose CNU over better schools in Virginia. CNU has no reputation academically, and there isnt much going on socially. I made a mistake by going here one year too much, and I am transferring as a junior to JMU next year, which isnt very uncommon as I bet a lot of students are filling out transfer forms right now.

commentVA Code 23-232. Don't see rent a cop there. So great to know that CNUPD likes to bust the very people who they protect i.e. job security. I doubt merit badges are given for each student they get in trouble. And keep in mind JMU cracked down a block party in riot gear, so don't get too comfortable that they are rent-a-cops too.
