It really depends on who you are. Christopher Newport University is trying to make a name for itself by building many new buildings. The school is trying to become a business school even so there is so many biology majors. Paul Trible, the president has try to cut funding for the science majors. The school would be great if they add more sciences core to it agenda. CNU is a liberal art university that focuses more on the art than the sciences.

CNU has the potential of being a great that could make University Of Virginia and the College of William and Mary a joke. Paul Trible is rushing the school for growth too quickly even so the school has not been here for 50 years yet. He has projects for chapels and more building that sounds ridiculous. Just add more funding to the programs and not just the business area. Psychology and Biology are also popular but do not receive as much as Business.

The president can be seen as arrogrant and conceited. I seen him twice in a span of 3 weeks. He would interupt a conversation and immeadiately shake your hand and say "Mr. President". Because of his arrogrance ,CNU alumni do not want to donate to the university.

And with more icing on the cake, the school has a very conservative feel even so it is growing. It is pretty common for people from NOVA that come here. Anyone that stands up to the tyrant, ends up being replace.

And don't give me that crap, "he has done a lot for school", and "CNU would be a shitty college" No human should be treating as a diety. Like I don't know, the library is name after Paul Trible and his wife. It just seems that Trible wants to make Christopher Newport University a great school so he can reap all the rewards.

If you apply to any college or university, remember this. College is just plain old bullshit. Every school just rave about what is so great about their school but fall short in the long run. There is major problem with every college in the U.S. Don't believe in the crap

Best colleges in the U.S.
A marketing ploy that been use for many years.

Hopefully, my review can help aid students look into CNU and any other colleges in the USA. Parents too. If you need help just email me.
