I absolutely love the small class sizes and friendly professors and staff! The overall enrollment is small enough to know most everyone in all of my classes, and also the amount of clubs for being such a small college is impressive! Although the food service struggled this semester, it typically is satisfactory and I eat there for most meals. There are lots of study areas in the buildings, and the tutoring center is so convenient a life-saver.

I did take some classes online, mainly over the the summer. The online format was the exact same site used for in person classes, with the exception of supplemental access codes to sites. The online format utilized pre-recorded lectures, online quizzes and tests, and I thought was nearly identical to in person learning.
Chadron is a pretty small school, but it's hard to feel trapped. There are so many different people and cultures on our little campus. I swear you see a new face every day. The professors make an honest effort to help you out with anything. Your advisors truly care for their advisees and the food is to die for!
