I like Cheyney because it’s small. I get the individual help from professors, I need while enjoying my college life. The campus is beautiful. The people are so nice. Everyone is so nice. Since cheyney is the first HBCU, the campus is rich with culture and learning experiences in every video.

Cheyney University has a beautiful campus full of teachers that are very supportive. I choose Cheyney because ot is close to home, but I get a chance to have a real college experience without being far away.
I feel as though that Cheyney university has great professers who really care about you graduating and moving on to grad school. I just feel as though the administration is not organized and has held many students up from getting their degree. For an example I was allowed to participate in graduation and take my 6 credits in the summer courses and be done waiting for my degree in the mail. I waited until December of 2013. They told me I had a balance that needed to paid. I went to pay the balance about 4 months later because I had to save the money up because it was over a 1,000. After I paid the balance I waited again for my degree for another 2 months for the register office to tell me it was an over site with one of my courses and I had to take the course over because I had a D in the courseLol. I tried to get financial aid but my loans were in default and I couldn't get a loan. So now its 2016 and I still don't have my degree. I feel as though it was a bit unprofessional on the administration part. As far as the teachers go they really care, in fact my professor told me about this scholarship so all I can do now is pray on it and hope for the best.
