CU Preview Day is an excellent way for prospective students and their families to learn more about joining the Chowan University family! During this event, you'll have the opportunity to hear from current students, learn about life on campus, get information about athletics, and have the admissions staff answer any questions. We hope to CU there!
Chowan University is known for having “faith in your future.” Much more than a tagline, our mission is to provide an education that transforms ordinary students into extraordinary graduates. We do this in good faith, trusting God in the person of Jesus Christ, with optimism for each student’s success. Our faculty come to Chowan to teach, advise, and engage students in the classroom, on the fields and courts of competition, and throughout extra-curricular activities. Faith in action underscores all that we do. It is not enough to teach students how or what to think; we teach students how to live with honor and conscience using their head, heart, and hands.
When you choose Chowan, you choose to live on our beautiful, diverse, supportive campus. You choose a place where you can thrive, confident that you are surrounded by faculty and staff that recognize your potential and genuinely care about your success. You choose opportunity. You choose family. You choose faith. You choose a vibrant future.
