There are no shuttles and the closest international airport is in Rapid City or Denver. We do have a small airport that flies to DIA.

I have never been offered drugs and much of the drinking is confined to small dorm room get-togethers and off-campus house parties.

My application took a matter of minutes and had no fee!

Guys & Girls:
Chadron is in a very secluded and "country-lifestyle" area, so a lot of the students are from small towns and did not want to venture into the crazy world of big, DI college towns.

A lot of parties happen, but the town is small enough to where you can walk anywhere in town within a half hour. A lot of off-campus living is near the main bar-scene.
College Sophomore 2013-12-12T07:45:23Z
It is a small-town with few options, but a lot of great small-dining business opportunities that you can't get from a chain-restaurant.

Health & Safety:
I would like to see better security in the dorms. I have been raped on-campus and did not have much support to help deal with the situation that could have easily been avoided with a male that already had three restraining orders from other females on the floor I was living on.

The school is great about awarding in-state tuition to out-of-state students. It is easy to obtain academic scholarships and there is a department called the START office that is dedicated to helping students with classes, loans, and financial aid.

The zones that allow on-campus and off-campus parking are very far from each other and most on-campus parking is reserved for on-campus students, not commuters. It gets frustrating because the students have to walk through the little parking available to commuters. It is dangerous for the pedestrians and nerve-racking for the drivers.
College Sophomore 2013-12-12T07:36:40Z
The athletic facilities are insufficient but the athletic training staff is excellent.
College Sophomore 2013-12-12T07:30:49Z
The RA's and RD's are very informative and helpful of the rules. They will easily answer questions, but if you are doing something that is against the rules they will bring the hammer down.
College Sophomore 2013-12-12T07:28:02Z
Wireless goes out in the dorms, finals week has limited computer access in the labs. Hard to get into labs if you live off-campus.
College Sophomore 2013-12-12T07:22:42Z
Sidewalks and pathways are not well-kept and snow builds up on roads. The school sits on a hill, so when icy conditions are present, travel for off-campus students is difficult.
College Freshman 2013-11-12T23:08:00Z
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.
College Freshman 2013-11-12T22:49:27Z
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.
College Freshman 2013-11-12T22:46:53Z
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.
College Freshman 2013-11-12T22:42:21Z
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.
College Freshman 2013-11-12T22:38:21Z
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.
College Freshman 2013-11-12T22:26:52Z
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.
Sorry, there are no reviews.
