Welcome from the President

Dr. Rhine Dear Student,

From the moment you first set foot on campus as a freshman, until you toss your cap into the air after you graduate, you will be surrounded by people dedicated to making your time at Chadron State College both rewarding and enjoyable.

Our dedicated and passionate faculty will prepare you to excel, as evidenced by the frequent recognition and awards our graduates receive in their fields. Our alumni around the country speak highly of the quality of the education they received at Chadron State and of their experiences here. Each fall, many of our alumni return for homecoming to renew old acquaintances, and recall a very special time in their lives.

Our current students hail from 45 states and Puerto Rico and 31 foreign countries. Many of our students reside on our beautiful campus and enjoy the traditional college experience and many others come to us through our comprehensive distance learning opportunities from their homes around the state and country.

We recognize that the college experience is more than a classroom. Our beautiful campus, located in northwestern Nebraska, is set among splendid bluffs, pine hills and grassy plains and steeped in the small town atmosphere of Chadron, Nebraska. A host of extracurricular activities are designed to challenge and enrich your life and your college experience. Our many athletic programs, including NCAA Division II sports in the Rocky Mountain Athletic Conference, intramurals, and club sports provide you with an avenue to participate if you aspire to be a student athlete or a welcome diversion from your studies as you cheer from the stands with your friends.

If I had to pick one word to describe Chadron State College, it would be vibrant—the academic programs, the faculty, the support staff, the athletic programs, the campus life and our alumni are all vibrant. Welcome to Chadron State College!

Dr. Rhine

President, Chadron State College
