As a sophomore at Chadron State, I have had an amazing two successful years of college. The community is small enough that social life has had a major impact on my education and I have been able to maintain relationships with my instructors. Courses are very challenging and I have gained all sorts of new knowledge from every course I have been enrolled in. One thing I would change is having more activities available to students on campus as far as social life because of thow small the town of Chadron is.

As a geology major, Chadron has one of the best geology programs in the country. It is one of the few places, perhaps even the only college where you can get a degree in geology online. The field camps every summer are a blast, giving you great field experience in states such as Colorado, Idaho, Utah, etc. With small class sizes you get one on one with your professors. I'd recommend Chadron to anyone who is willing to work hard and to learn.
I love Chadron! The way online classes are set up makes it easy for me to fit them into my crazy life. I can't say enough about the difference the Chadron experience has made in my ability to complete my undergrad degree and now return for my graduate degree.
