Chowan is amazing! I'm a senior, and I wish I wasn't leaving just yet. I came in very uncertain about my academic potential. I will now be graduating with honors and an impressive resume. I owe it all to Chowan University!
Review Chowan University
Overall experience is alright. The college is not what I expected from my first visit. I have adapted to the boring campus with barley any places to eat near by. Academic wise is great! The only bad thing is comfort, finding joy in staying here.
Greek life is something I am a part of, Alpha Sigma Tau. However people don't know what all to expect from a Greek until they're one themselves. Greeks are important to the campus and actually are VERY involved with fundraising and making things happen on campus. Most Greeks are extremely sociable and easy to speak with as well as they know how to have tons of fun. Greek housing is not something that is available at Chowan, but there is a great deal of bonding within sororities and fraternities. As far as non-Greeks are everyone views the different ones differently. Some see Greeks as just another way to be "better" than someone while most see it as an unforgettable bonding experience and a new opportunity to be a part of something big. Overall the Greeks are great.
