Degree: Public Health
Graduation Year: 2017

Caldwell University is an extremely diverse campus. It's very welcoming and prospective students can connect with one another quite easily. My time at Caldwell University has been amazing and quite enjoyable. There are numerous resources available for students and people are here to help one another!

Degree: Health Sciences

Caldwell is currently the only CACREP approved Art Therapy program in the U.S., which makes it the top choice for anyone pursuing their Master's degree. With the AT field being so new, there are several changes/tweaks happening within the current (2017-2018) program. Methods in AT is one of my favorite classes, taught by a woman who is been in the field for more than 20 years, and is genuinely quite creative and knowledgeable in art and art therapy. The program is small, averaging about 70 women, yet very intensive. If a full-time student, I recommend working part-time (otherwise, flip the roles of FT/PT) - students are required to maintain a certain GPA, and get no lower than a B in any class. To the open-minded individuals, creative, think-outside-the-box beings, and those who have a destiny to help in a creative way, I recommend this program to YOU!

Degree: Counseling
Graduation Year: 2008

it was a good program, it was small so you actually felt like you mattered. The professors were all pretty good, some better than others. The person that ran the counseling program was phenomenal. She took the time to know all of her students and was always available if you needed her.

Degree: Counseling
Graduation Year: 2017

Professors are professionals in the field who provide useful examples that compliment class lectures and genuinely care about each student. Small class sizes allow each student to be involved in each class and allows for more in depth conversations during class. Program requirements and length unclear at times but advisement is available.

Degree: School Counseling
Graduation Year: 2013

I thoroughly enjoyed my graduate school experience. The campus was located in a convenient and safe location; the faculty was friendly, knowledgeable, and readily available; and my cohort of peers was easily to work with and learn amongst. If I had to choose a con of my graduate program, it would be that it included a lot of material that did not directly prepare me for my current career as a school counselor. For instance, it would have been helpful to learn about the school-based computer programs used by school counselors today (Naviance, Powerschool, etc) as well as the processes of 504/I&RS meetings which are critical in the school setting as well.

Degree: Counseling
Graduation Year: 2017

This college is very small compared to where i went to bachelors and has some cons because of that. There are not enough options for food at this school. Parking here is a lot easier then other colleges in the area, I never have troubles finding a spot. The program I'm in is very good. I feel like professors work with you and still push you to become a better person. I have learned a lot in my time here so far.

Degree: Reading & Literacy Education
Graduation Year: 2016

To begin with, my professor is very personable, entertaining, and enlightening, which makes my interest level and retention level high. He has such passion for his subject matter, and it transmits to me. Secondly, the school where I work, and Caldwell College are in affiliation with each other and the classes are held at a school in the district I work in, making it very convenient as far as transportation goes. There are usually 15 of us in one class at a time, and that's just enough to receive personal attention from the professor, but also have different opinions expressed. It is unfortunate we can only take one class a time because of the way the program is set up. We also can have 2 weeks in between class visits, which disrupts consistency. However, I am very pleased to this point with my graduate program.

Degree: Counseling
Graduation Year: 2016

some of the pros would be many of the faculty have vast knowledge and practice in the field they teach. They have a variety of network opportunities in the field and offer much room for growth and development for each student. Some of the cons would be the cost and social experience on Campus. As many graduate schools are, Caldwell College is too expensive. In addition as a graduate student unable to afford housing on Campus their is limited opportunity to meet new people and with such a small campus their are rarely any common interest among the students in terms of the events held on Campus.
