Caldwell University Reviews
Caldwell University is a wonderful place to learn. The professors were their greatest asset. They managed to hire some of the best and most caring professors I've ever come into contact with, especially in the Criminal Justice and Sociology departments. The biggest con about this university is its religiosity, so a student should make sure they're agreeable to taking at least four religion-based courses on top of the core and major requirements. But the campus is small, everything is easily accessible, the students are very friendly, the surrounding area is safe and upscale and the all the buildings are small and cozy. I'd recommend this university.
It was great! The campus looks amazing, the students are smart and full of energy, so many majors to choose from, and the insides of the building is like a wonderland of creativity. Not only that but the professors in the school have worked with many famous figures and had quite a had on many of the schools current materials that they use now.
As a biology major, I felt that most of my professors truly cared about their students. Since this college is much smaller than most universities, this allowed the students to have a close relationship to their professors. Whenever I had any questions or needed any help, they were there for me. Only issue at this moment is that they are yet to find an organic professor that will continue teaching long-term. They are currently changing organic professors every semester over the past year because they have yet to find one that is qualified to stay.
