Chestnut Hill College Reviews
Chestnut Hill College is nothing like the colleges you hear about or see on television. The campus life is extremely limited. There are no parties on campus, well maybe once in a blue, and there is nothing around to really do. The school is located near two malls, but besides that there is nothing for you to really do. Only juniors and seniors are allowed to have cars on campus, unless permission is granted. Therefore if you want to have fun you have to go outside of the campus and spend money on Public Transportation, Uber or Lyft rides. The food has it's days, some days it seems appealing, others not. However, despite all the negatives the staff is amazing!
I am enrolled in the Accelerated Degree program at Chestnut Hill College for adult learners. After doing three years at another university, I was pleasantly surprised at how many of my credits transferred over. The program is excellent as it provides flexibility with it's wide variety of courses offered and different locations. However, it is fast paced; each semester is split into two sessions-running eight weeks at a time. Chestnut Hill college even offers Summer I and Summer II for accelerated students making it even more convenient for working adults who have so many things to juggle to obtain credits. The staff is very welcoming and helpful and it gives the feel of a close knit family. Although, it is a Catholic institution, it is a very inclusive environment. I highly recommend this college especially for adults and transfer students.
I love the close-knit community, the professors, and the personal attention of the small classes. The professors know each of their students personally, which makes it easy to reach out to them and make close relationships. They genuinely care about your education and understanding. One thing I do not particularly like, however, is the music program. As a music ed major, I feel that there is not a lot of opportunity in the area because it is such a small, underfunded department. I have had great experiences in the personal lessons in the music department, for example, piano and voice, but overall, the I do not think it is the best school to attend as a music major. Some people, however, like the smallness of the department. Overall, I love the academics in the school and the family-feel of on campus.
