Castleton University Reviews
Rating 3.36 out of 5 498 reviews
The professors were very helpful and found ways to teach during the COVID pandemic. While remaining flexible with student's schedules, the professors certainly put forth a good effort to accommodate student needs while understanding the difficulties of learning online and the environment many students were in.
Although being uncertain about attending Castleton at first, I felt like I was at home shortly after arriving on campus. Everybody on campus is super friendly and professors build a connection with their students that last for your entire college career. Castlelton is an affordable university that offers many things that you would find at a big name school while being more more affordable.
I love Castleton! Everyone there is so nice and welcoming its crazy. I was treated so well by all of the staff and administration.
Being online is hard, especially as a nursing student. With COVID being around many of my classes have been online and that has been quite challenging, yet my professors truly make the most of the situation. They offer office hours via zoom weekly, and most of my professors are willing to meet outside of their office hours if you schedule a meeting. They are all super friendly, and willing to help which is so helpful during these tough times.
I love attending Castleton University. The school is a bit on the smaller size in comparison to most universities but the atmosphere is very much like home. I always feel comfortable on campus, and everyone is always so friendly and easy to talk to. Being a student there truly feels like home and I could not imagine myself anywhere else.
Castleton is a small university, with a campus that is very user friendly. Academics are on one side of the campus, while student life buildings are on the other. The school is small enough where one knows many of the people they pass walking to and from buildings. Classes were held online this semester to keep people safe, but students were still allowed to be on campus to take advantage of the various resources the school has to offer. The faculty and staff care for the students, and they both care for the community. The school has state of the art learning and athletic facilities and encourages students to participate in various activities in and out of the classroom.
As a senior in high school, Castleton University gave me the opportunity to start college a year early. I plan to have 38 college credits completed by the end of my senior year.
I have been in touch with my college professors and am prepared for the upcoming school year. The instructions that my professors and advisors have given me are thorough and well understood.
Since the beginning of the COVID 19 pandemic, Castleton University took the right precautions when it came to finishing out our spring semester. Although such video classroom platforms, such as Zoom, were already established within this institution, Zoom was finally put to good use! After the announcement that classes would remain in an online platform, the faculty and staff were very communicative about how the remainder of the semester would look in an online format, giving all of us a week off to test out the online platform, and to be able to receive updates in a timely fashion.
I love being at Castleton because there is a great connection as a community between the campus, students, teachers, and the surrounding areas. Being at Castleton gives me the best opportunities to learn in my style.
It was great! Professors were very on it and active! The professors are always willing to help you no matter what and are great when it comes to your needs! They are very nice and help keep you on track while learning a lot! Overall great experience how ever I prefer inverse learning.
Castleton is amazing! Food is not great though. The people are so nice and the campus is small yet beautiful. You know a lot of people however its to a bad thing!
Not for everyone. you either love it or hate it. not the best personal experience, but many people i met there were in love with the school
I love Castleton University. The staff is definitely devoted to making your time there very successful. All of the nursing teachers I have had are amazing at what they do. As soon as I got my first call from the registrars the staff was so friendly and helpful, it's an amazing school!
It is what you make of it. If you don't have a car or know people that do you are stuck on campus because there isn't anything to do in the town. It is very small and you have to speak up for what you want. Though the school says they listen it is hard to have people of power listen to you unless you keep up with pushing it. If you play a sport then you will know a lot of people otherwise you will know other people in your major and in your grade well during orientation. I suggest joining the many different clubs we have there are a lot.
The food is terrible and always cold. Being able to ski all the time and graduating in three years makes it worth it. Teachers and classes are a hit or miss, some are great!
Don't go here if the following applys to you. Your a single parent, a parent, you took nursing classes out of order, you can't handle discrimination or being called vulgar names by the nursing staff for no reason (countless reports make no difference only when one of their staff members faces charges), if you have an inflexable schedule, you want to take summer classes or desire to take online classes. Expect zero sympathy and to be looked at as a dollar sign. A small college with no heart. In fact one nursing professor gave a coarse on compassion then bashed all her patients and some of the students. They are behind on the times. One advisors laughed at me when I asked as a sr. If I could take classes over the summer. He said tough luck they dont offer those classes only on their campus and no they won't work then. If you want to graduate you have a better chance at another University.
