Cairn University Reviews
From the moment I stepped foot on this campus, I fell in love with the genuine, caring atmosphere of the faculty and staff, and every professor I have had the pleasure of having in class has been nothing but gracious, incredibly understanding, and kind. There is a unique element to this small Christian university, an element of community and togetherness that is hard to find elsewhere. It's a beautiful campus, situated right outside of Philadelphia. The opportunities I have been given here and the flexibility I have been given in pursuing my major is so appreciated and allows me to almost completely personalize my program. I have never once regret choosing this university, and I am deeply grateful for how dedicated it remains to Scripture and seeking God in every area of life.
I appreciated how much biblical truth was integrated in my non-Bible classes. The teachers not only care about the academic well-being of their students, but the spiritual well-being. There is nothing in particular that I would want changed about Cairn!
At Cairn University I felt like I fit in completely. It had such a great atmosphere and I knew automatically that I was going to like it. If you are interested in playing a sport, I recommend reaching out. All the coaches there are so caring and take good care of you and try their hardest to make you feel welcomed with the team. The classes are super small and they feel like it is just you and the teacher in the room. That was one of the biggest deciding point was seeing the class sizes, being so small.
