What Students Are Saying

3.57 Average Rating
Cheyney University is a great university. It is not diverse so much, it is more on the African American culture. Its plenty to do on campus.
Tierra from Philadelphia, PA
The students, staff and professors are very nice.
I started band camp there and the welcoming was great.
The new dorm I am assigned to is beautiful.
