My experience at Chowan University overall is a great way to start my college career at. The way that the professors educate students here shows that they genuinely care about students future. The school activities are sometimes creative. This school has a lot of nice places to study and relax at on campus. They also provide free tutoring which is a great resource for first year students. The class room sizes are very manageable to learn in, they're are typically no more than thirty five students in a class room. I suggest that you apply to Chowan University if you would like to fulfill your college career in a small urban environment.

Chowan is a small school that which, I am grateful for. It really allows me to preform at my best. However, it is a bit of a party school. there is a party most weekends. The staff and faculty really care about each individuals experience. Great people! Great school!
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!
