The College Money Maze gang went to our first college visit, HBCU Cheyney University and we discuss our experiences from different perspectives: being a minority, having attended and graduated from a larger university and looking at the college student experience.
Cheyney is located in Cheyney, PA and situated in a rural setting. You could pass the entrance on this dirt road and never know it. The signage from the main road is not very large or apparent. Using your GPS might also get you lost.
The University has a lot to offer first year students. The tour guide walked us around the campus and showed us the residence halls, the computer lab, the student center, the arts center the place on campus where the Divine Nine (Black Greek Fraternities and Sororities) call their hangout.
The Keystone Honor Programs is a highlight of the school and if you are one of the recipients of the scholarships, you have perks that go along with it such as first choice of housing and free tuition.
Cheyney University is one of the more affordable schools in the region with Tuition for in-state students full time at about $5,000 per semester. Out-of-state students would pay on average $7,500 per semester. You should also plan for an additional $6,000 for room/board/meal plan. If you are interested in their financial aid application or general information, go to the website and contact the financial aid office.
