No a whole lot of restaurants available, especially if you want to take a girl out. Only 3 fast food places: mcdonalds, taco johns, and subway. There's one pizza place which is pizza hut. Only 3 other restaurants in town.

Guys & Girls:
Girls can be cute, but there are not a lot of girls who wear campus. Many girls are willing to sleep around, and they love to party. There are girls who don't fit that but generally ALL girls party and drink here. Most are athletic and involve in some sport or work out or do yoga on their own.
Boy wise, if you like meat heads, there are plenty here. Lot of beefy or muscular guys around but most are into chewing. We actually have a handful of international students, such as a close friend of mine who's from Belgium, yet you wouldn't know until he tells you. Though others have heavy accents. A lot of boys are into partying and the heavier guys are usually into x box sports games. The more athletic guys aren't too into video games though.
Everyone is extremely competitive with sports teams, with the Huskers or our home team.

Health & Safety:
If you feel sick, they'll probably send you to the hospital and won't give you anything really, but the nurse is there. As for security, I have literally never seen them. My friends have said they have seen them on rare occasion but its been so minimal, I didn't even know we them. It's relatively safe on campus, we have had no criminal activity, but it becomes so quiet after 9 that I feel uncomfortable walking from dorm to dorm at night or early morning.

Depending on what dorm you're in, it can be nice. Brooks has terrible rooms, but you know everyone in the building. Edna has the nicest up to date stuff, but you tend to only know about yours and one other floor. Andrews has the nicest upper class man dorms, next to the edna SUITE, however you know little to no one, even your neighbors.

Computers in the library are the best money can buy and they are all over campus in practically every building. Printing is available in every building and completely free, and that's been a life saver.
However, we have had issues with our internet. Sometimes it will be great, then other times it will fail. Bad weather will shut it down and you have to go down and reset your stuff once at the technology desk. The speed is decent, but don't expect high speed. If you're gaming, as long as your computers pretty good you'll be fine with only minor minor lag.

The walls are pretty thin in certain dorms, so having sex on your bed will get you a noise complaint. Having sex with someone loud will get a noise complaint. Which usually after two, they kick you out of the dorm. So if your boy/girl is sexually active, get a place off campus.
When it comes to alcohol, as long as you don't say anything or show it to anyone, you can get drunk in your room and no ones going to say anything. Many people come stumbling drunk through the lobbies, but as long as they aren't causing problems, no one will say anything.
Spitting, smoking, and other drugs are pretty heavily enforced though.

I was able to get one scholarship, but that was it. If you want to work on campus you're going to need work aid, except they give work aid to everyone on the IHOP program, so unless a student from there turns it down, you'll be stuck jobless on campus for goodness knows how long. If your parents make five figures, you probably won't even receive work aid.
If you're on IHOP, this schools a pretty good option. Except you will have to pay for summer classes since you won't be able to get all of what you need in four years and you'll have a ridiculously heavy work load to deal with.

There is nothing to do, unless your life revolves around bowling, going to the movie theater(which shows 3 movies and changes them MAYBE once a week if you're lucky), or smoke hookah. Even then, bowling closes early, and the movie theater and hookah bar open pretty late. Forget parties, they always get busted if they get big and are shut down by midnight. There's only one liquor store and it's pretty expensive, so if you drink you have a pretty limited selection. Shopping wise, they close by 5 or earlier sometimes. The only hangout place worth going to is the bean broker, where you can drink coffee and listen to whatever bands come into play (and if you get headaches easily, don't come cause it's loud). Even though the Bean Broker is a pretty nice place to be, the liquor, food, and coffee is more expansive than Starbucks or a sit down restaurant for what you're getting. I would say it's San Francisco pricing, and if you've ever been to an independent coffee shop there, you would know what I mean.
Fast food wise you have mcdonalds, subway, and taco johns. That's it. Forget taco bell or panda express or literally anything else. The closet place to get any of that is rapid, an hour and half to two hours away. Plus only 3 restaurants in town which are on par with cafeteria food, yet charge close to $10 a meal. Want a pizza? fork out $10 for a medium pizza, barely enough to feed an 18 year old, 100 pound girl who ate lunch a few hours ago. If you don't like pizza hut, then it looks like you won't be getting any pizza.

The facilities are pretty nice, the library has some high tech computers and are putting in a coffee shop but you can tell on the outside these buildings are old. Entertainment wise in the student center you're looking at pool tables, ping pong tables, flat screen big tvs, and an x-box. That's about it, not much else. The pool and ping pong tables are the big thing though, that's what most people play on if they're there.
College Freshman 2013-11-12T22:24:19Z
If you're going into sports, the school treats you insanely well, especially for football. They tend to pay for everything if you're going into football, and everyone goes to the games. They have rallies for everyone but football, track, cross country, and wrestling are the big thing. I hear and see stuff about rodeo but I've never seen them do anything. This is a big sports school though and the gym is a like paying for a membership kind of gym with the options they have available. No swimming pool though.
College Freshman 2013-11-12T22:20:41Z
The buildings for your major are very nice, and there are always counselors available. The workload is doable, but there aren't a lot of choice for majors and minors, so if you want more options you're better off at a bigger college.
College Freshman 2013-11-12T22:20:41Z
There are little to no internships available in the area. Anything is going to be at least an hour drive away. If you are going into anything other than science or teaching, forget even finding one. I'm going into law and they don't offer a single thing for law students that I have seen. Lots of geology and teaching aid options but that's all I've seen or heard of. Those are the only paying ones at least. Everyone else just gets jobs at Wreckers or the Bean Broker or even Walmart instead of interns, since those jobs pay the bills.
College Freshman 2013-11-12T22:16:34Z
I enjoy that all my teachers know me by name, however, this is not a college experience but more like high school. The teachers require you go to class, if you don't, after about 5 absences you have to drop the class.
The food in the grill is pretty good and the cafeteria is a hit and miss. However, if you don't get a meal plan over 14 meals a week, you can't buy more than one meal per certain times. Such as breakfast is from 7 to 10, lunch is 11 to 3, and dinner is 3 to 8. If you get up late and get lunch at 3 and try to get dinner around 6 or 7, then you'll be going hungry until either the C store opens at 9 or your friend takes you to get something to eat, causing you to not spend the meals you're paying for.
The dorms are pretty nice, but around late October, early November, they stopped allowing any students from leaving the Brooks dorm and restricted move ins to Andrews dorm. Brooks is the worst dorm, which is run down and terrible, so to stop people from moving into available rooms in other dorms was ridiculous. Even in Andrews, the rooms are for upper class-man but when they have availability they don't allow students to move in was frustrating. The rooms, based on quality, in the order you'll want is: Edna SUITE, Andrews, Edna WORK WING, high rise, kent, and lastly Brooks. Though you're paying a ridiculous amount to live on campus, you're better off renting a place if you can help it accept if your freshman, then you are required to pay their over the top price.
Oh, and if you're freshman you'll be required to take an FYI, which isn't transferable as anything except an elective to other colleges. So you better get an A in these extremely demanding classes, or it'll bring your GPA down significantly.
The counselors and staff are fairly helpful though. I have found that it is extremely helpful for my studies to be able to have access to my teachers almost 24/7. I'll start suffering in my History class so I'll sit down and my teacher will help me develop the perfect study guide for the test. Plus they offer tutoring which I haven't gone to (as I prefer the instructors help for tests as they know whats on them) but they are all available almost all the time as well.
Technology on campus is fabulous, all the computers are upgraded to touch screens and any building you go in to, there is an available printer in case you forgot to print it on the way out. Teachers are very understandable if you forget to print something and will either let you do it right after class or right then. The turn in box online is a little complicated to figure out at first, but it is actually pretty easy and nice once you get used to it. Just make sure that if you are typing your answers in a box, to type it on a word doc first because the page refreshes and signs you out every so often, which will cause you to lose whatever you were typing.
Finally, the events on campus are a lot of fun. They've done a little bit of everything from a foam party to a carnival. They are all free to students, however, there aren't that many after the first month of the semester. They used to have movie nights and competitions or something to do almost every day, but they've thinned out as time has passed. The events during the first month and some during the second month of school are crazy fun though, and they always have the best food. If nothing else, those events were definitely worth it, despite them being small and low budget.

The Edna parking lot is the worst designed and worst spaced parking lot. The spots are tight and slanted, and practically impossible to find a spot within a close distance. All the other parking lots are decent and have no problems with but Edna is just terrible, beyond terrible.
College Freshman 2013-11-12T21:53:38Z
There's not a lot of transportation options, unless you own a car or your friends own a car. There is a school campus bus or van that can take you to Walmart, but times are limited. Cops offer rides on occasions, but there are not no taxis or buses that I have seen of. The library is within walking distance, but its still about a 10 minute walk. Walmart is the only place you will want to go, unless you plan on going on a date or hanging out with friends which the only few places in town to go are the movie theater, the bean broker (which both are a 10 minute or so walk from campus), the hookah bar (which is rumored to be shut down), or the bowling alley. There aren't any date worthy restaurants around and they usually are about the same quality as the places to eat on campus. Its easy to get around on campus though, the furthest building is about 5 minutes in a fast paced walk, 10 in a slow crawl. The dorms are close together too, except for Edna and Brooks, which if you are an English major or have a lot of classes in Old Admin, I would suggested getting a dorm in one of these. Even though Edna is the farthest, its the newest dorm so it's very nice and clean. Avoid Brooks if you can help it though, despite being the middle ground between all the dorms, it's terrible quality. Long distance wise, get rides with friends and take only one car and have your parents meet you there. There's an airport somewhere in town, but I've never seen it. You're better off driving to a major airport if you're far away in another state, so going up to Colorado with friends is your best bet.

Charon is a small town. I grew up in a small town and love the atmosphere of them, so I love it. Its a great little community.

There is a lot of hands on that we get to do. The professors are very interested in the students work.

There are a couple bars here but not much else. The RLA puts on events and dances which can be fun.

I love Chadron State College. The professors are really helpful and as long as you are putting in effort are always willing to help you .
College Junior 2013-09-13T14:38:04Z
I enrolled in the online MBA program at Chadron State College in Nebraska.
I am a 30-something professional that has been out of college for only a couple of years. I have completed two Bachelor's degrees online and a Master's Certificate prior to enrolling at Chadron. In addition I have a 3.9 GPA and am a Mensan.
I chose Chadron because they had an MBA program, my employer's tuition reimbursement would cover the entire degree, and I could earn it in less than two calendar years.
My first class was Managerial Economics. The first homework assignment was a handful of questions from three different chapters in the book. I literally spent hours on the homework, without completing it or even understanding how to complete it. My fellow students had questions and requested help to which the instructor directed them back to the other students in the class. The book offered no good examples of how to complete the homework and the supplementary information provided by the instructor loaded to the course content did not review examples of the math either. I ended up dropping the class as a result of the lack of response from the instructor. I contacted the advisor and graduate studies director after dropping to explain the situation and request more information on how I could have been successful. Two weeks later I still had no answers and just got the run around.
I would not recommend this school. It is not acceptable to teach from a math book with no answers or relevant examples. Further the instructor should not push student questions back to fellow students and ignore student emails.

The computer labs are nice to have and are open to us at all times. The Internet to the rooms are a little slow but not to bad.

Campos is small enough that there is no need for public transportation. The city is small as well but a car is nice to have though walking is possible.

There's not really a diversity for people who want to pursue a career outside of Social work, teaching, or agriculture.
College Junior 2013-05-22T19:39:22Z
I go to school in a small town. Most students are from out of state and do not have any other way to get around without borrowing or asking someone for a ride. A car is completely necessary for getting around town.
Sorry, there are no reviews.
