      All in all, I feel Chatham has been a wonderful school. Attending a program that is so small has been a great experience. It provides easy one-on-one time with my professors, rather than having a lecture with 100+ students, where I hardly ever actually speak to the professor. Not only does the school provide wonderful educational opportunities, but even the events are wonderful. The amount of speakers that come to the campus to inform us of gender roles, women's leadership in society, the important notes on why it's important to be politically involved, and so much more has been great. I am being educated in so many ways more than just my degree.

      I attended Chatham as an adult continuing ed student. The classes are rigorous and the professors invested in the students success. The campus is a beautiful, peaceful, secluded section of a vibrant city. For those who crave the occasional night-life, your student ID will get you a bus ride to downtown Pittsburgh or Oakland (where Pitt and CMU, and several other student bodies make up most of the population).
      The food is delicious, with vegan, vegetarian, international cuisine, and farm to table products of the Eden Hall campus and other local farmers.
      You can also get a delicious burger and fries, if you are determined to eat junkfood.
      There were opportunities for international travel, networking, career councilling, tutoring, work study, internships with leading companies, and fun field trips.
      I am an incoming freshman at the school, and my experience so far there has been excellent! The campus is beautiful and woodsy yet is situated in the heart of Pittsburgh, so it makes it very easily to find good jobs and internships for whatever major you choose! Some of the staff is very helpful, especially with all my credits coming in. Go Cougars!
