Christopher Newport was an English seaman and captain of “the largest of the three ships that brought the Jamestown settlers to the New World.” Over 400 years later, Christopher Newport University “is Virginia’s up and coming prestigious university,” providing “a private school education and experience at a public school cost.” “CNU is the perfect size” at “just over 5,000 students.” Students enjoy “close relationships between teachers and students” and “small classes and easily accessible professors.” Most of the professors “are enthusiastic about their material” and “will work you until you sweat...but this is not necessarily a bad thing.”
The Jeanne Clery Act requires colleges and universities to disclose their security policies, keep a public crime log, publish an annual crime report and provide timely warnings to students and campus employees about a crime posing an immediate or ongoing threat to students and campus employees.
