CNU has a lot of open space between buildings to that students can study and also appreciate the beauty of the campus simultaneously.

I love CNU with all my heart. With their expansion (building) and growth of programs, it is definitely a campus to be proud of.

I do not normally go out, but there are some options. A few things are on this side of the water, but there is a lot more on the south side.

Campus housing tends to be larger than other universities. The best dorms to live in are Warwick, Rappahannock, or East Campus. Housing options once you're an upperclassmen get significantly better. You get your own room and your own bathroom and even a kitchen.

I normally do not eat on campus since it is expensive, average of ten or more dollars per meal. The food is not always consistently good. You can count on the deserts always to be excellent though.

CNU keeps accepting more students each year and keeps depleting parking areas for building. The campus offers ample parking for on-campus students but not for commuters. Commuter parking is far and very limited. If you park off campus in local businesses' parking, you risk getting fined and/or towed.

CNU is very strict, but it allows for the students to be more successful and have more opportunities to be a positive influence on the community.

CNU is within twenty minutes of the VA historical triangle (Jamestown, Williamsburg, and Yorktown). There is a lot of history and tourism in the area. CNU is about thirty to forty-five minutes from VA Beach, but there are closer local beaches. The university is adjacent to a five mile trail in the woods that wraps around the Mariner's Museum and Peninsula Fine Arts Center. The trail has many opportunities to enjoy nature and take gorgeous pictures. There are several other parks within twenty minute radius. All of the cities in Hampton Roads offer numerous activities throughout the year especially during the holidays. There are two main malls that students can go to: Patrick Henry and Peninsula Town Center. Newport News does however have several smaller quaint shopping strips for the local community like City Center or Port Warwick. If students wish to partake in nightlife, there are local bars within walking distance and some clubs about twenty minutes away. For more the students can go across the water to VA Beach or Norfolk.

It is best to have a roommate or roommates, otherwise the pricing will be significantly higher. Local housing offers a CNU discount for students. I have heard mixed things about landlords. I would recommend living in a complex rather than renting. Parking and safety can very depending on where exactly you live. The campus is located in the middle of a city with a definite presence of crime. There are pockets where it is worse than other areas. Students must be wary of those.

Guys & Girls:
Most of all the students are extremely attractive and keep in shape. Everyone who attends CNU is very hardworking. They are involved in their classes, on campus, and in their community. That is what CNU prides themselves on. A third of the students on campus are in Greek life which results in a more preppy/trendy population. As for social life, CNU is a dry campus, therefore, students are not technically allowed to drink on campus. It does happen however. If students are looking for parties, they attend parties off campus at commuters' houses. CNU does provide ample amounts of activities amongst all of the different organizations as well as the Campus Activities Board (CAB).

CNU does not offer very many transportation options. There are Zip cars only. The city of Newport News provides the HRT buses and taxis. Students must primarily rely on themselves for any sort of transport. Most of everything that a student would need though is within walking distance.

Even though CNU is more homogenous, the students are very accepting of everyone.

The weather in this region fluctuates a lot, therefore, it can be frustrating.

Parking is a big issue on campus. Depending on where you live, it can take you 10 minutes to get from your car to your dorm. The cost is also a bit much.
College Freshman 2013-11-07T22:08:36Z
There are a lot of Greek organizations on campus. The majority of the campus is involved in Greek life.
College Freshman 2013-11-07T22:06:55Z
It's a dry campus... or at least that's what they tell us.
College Freshman 2013-11-07T22:05:36Z
Very repetitive menus, but the staff is phenomenal!

Alcohol and illegal substances are prohibited on University property and will result in potential expulsion plus legal charges. Tobacco products are acceptable and designated smoking areas are located around campus.

Depending on the day, time, and parking lot, ease of finding a spot can change. If you leave in the middle of the day, you might not have a spot when you get back. However a car is not needed as the campus is pretty small being a 10 minute walk from one side to the other. Parking for the whole year is $250 and fines are usually pretty reasonable for most offenses.

All the professors care for their students and work with them to help them achieve as long as the students are willing to work with the professors and do work. Workload is well balanced and varies from professor to professor. As to study areas, every student has their own place to study. each academic building has study areas in it, sections of the library are open 24/7, and the student union and the great lawn are great places for either studying or relaxing between classes. I personally prefer climbing into a particular tree dubbed by many students as the study tree.

I love being a student of Computer Science at my school. Every week, the department brings in companies from around the area and around the state to talk to students about internships and careers after graduation. Teachers work with relatively small classes and professors are more available for one on one face time with students. Workload seems to be well balanced and every building is modern. In fact, one of the oldest buildings on campus is a residence hall that was constructed just over 22 years ago. Construction and expansion of the school have been happening constantly for several years now and the campus consists mostly of recently constructed buildings.

I receive federal student loans. I have never had any difficulties with the loans.

Parking spaces are at a premium. Passes are pricey but since a car isn't even necessary, it isn't that big of a deal.
College Junior 2013-10-31T18:33:36Z
I love CNU. It is amazing and the best college experience I could ask for.

I love my major. My adviser is my favorite professor and is incredibly helpful with anything and everything.
Sorry, there are no reviews.
