Chester College of New England is located in the heart of Chester, New Hampshire, a rural town near Manchester. This private, non-sectarian institution of higher education is accredited by the New England Association of Schools and Colleges (NEASC) and the New Hampshire Postsecondary Education Commission. The tranquil setting of the campus is a conducive background for nurturing the artistic and intellectual development of the students. The low student-to-faculty ratio helps to build a strong relationship between the teachers and students. The General Education Core curriculum integrates liberal and creative art courses and Bachelor of Arts degree programs in Fine Arts, Graphic Design, Communication Arts, Photography and Media Arts, Creative Writing, and Professional Writing. A variety of scholarships are offered for outstanding students. The Wadleigh Library holds a perfect collection of books, periodicals, and media to support all curricular and research needs. There is a Student Success Center which offers full and part-time employment opportunities for the students. The campus also includes five computer centers/labs, college bookstore, commuter lounge, and dining commons. All the computer centers have high-speed Internet access.
