Remember, college is all about finding the “perfect” fit: the size, the place, the people. 

Here on our 260-acre campus in historic Newport News, Virginia, you'll find that Christopher Newport University is truly an incredible place — an excellent education, amazing opportunities, a community dedicated to your success and a stunning campus. Students come to CNU from every region in Virginia, across the country, and more than 40 foreign nations. They embark on their own CNU adventure for a variety of reasons - from our outstanding Honors Program to our unique President’s Leadership Program. Their destinations range from the stage to the boardroom; their tools range from test tubes to paint brushes. The stops they make on their journey may be different, but underlying it all, CNU students share some important characteristics - intellectual curiosity, a commitment to honesty and integrity, and a respect for the people around them.
