Unlike the majority of the students here, CNU was my first choice. I thought a nice small school would be great and the campus was gorgeous when I toured. HOWEVER, the school is expanding MUCH quicker than it is able to handle. Registering for classes was a nightmare, the classes are a nightmare, and living here is horrible. Many freshman, including myself, have cars to go home on the weekends. Yes there are parties if you know people, but if you do not meet the right people by chance then you are screwed. Even greeks hate this school. I am in an all freshman dorm and have not met one person who enjoys it here. EVERYONE wants to get out. This place is HORRIBLE. They really make it seem like they have everything perfect when you visit, but there is NOTHING perfect about this school. If you want to be close to the beach, go to ODU, Newport News is HORRIBLE. Trible is a horrible president and is only focused on pretty buildings, and having a good reputation, which he will never keep if he keeps running things like this. I would not recommend this school to anyone. Cannot wait until I can transfer.
