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!

I had an amazing first year at Chadron, being there made me feel like I was at home. I enjoyed the majority of my classes as my professors were a great group of people who were able to connect with the students as individuals instead of just a number unlike other major university. Another great part of Chadron is their athletics. I am on the football team so it might be a little bit biased but athletics at Chadron really bring the campus and the community together. We have just recently built a new athletic facility which includes a new football stadium, gym, locker rooms, and training room. Chadron is also building a new outdoors track. Choosing Chadron was the best decision I could have made for myself and I can not wait to go back next year.
I am still in high school as of now but I will be attending Chadron State College in fall 2020. I have visited and they are the best school out there for my future career. When I visited them made me feel that this could easily make me feel at home. They have an aspect at the college where the students get to know their professors and their professors know them. Students at Chadron are not known but their student number, but by their name. I am excited to get to call Chadron my home next year.
