WHAT I LIKED

As a Black student at a PWI like Christopher Newport University, I would not recommend the school to other Black women. Although I've grown up in a very diverse environment Christopher Newport University lacks diversity and it's a bit of a culture shock. I've had lots of experiences being uncomfortable in spaces. On the other hand, the education you'll receive here is amazing. I'm an English major and the English department is exceptional. This is the only reason I stayed.

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

Beware that the school lacks a lot of diversity and that comes with its own set of problems that can be very hard to overcome depending on the person.

5.0

WHAT I LIKED

I loved how all of the professors were willing to help me when I asked. The classes I took were not only engaging but also challenging. I made friends for a lifetime and felt like I had a second home.

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

I did not like that some classes were not entertaining (depending on the professor) and the food was amazing.
