Which college do you think is better and why: Chadron State College or Wayne State College? I want to major in Family and Consumer Sciences and live on campus. I'd appreciate insight on anything: academics, food, activities, rec center, student life, pretty much whatever you can think of. Thanks!

Well I can speak with a fair measure of expertise to both schools. I'm a CSC grad, but grew up in Wayne (and my folks still live there.)

Both are good schools and both will give you an excellent education. The school itself is what will be different.
Wayne, because kids are closer to home there, tends to clear out on the weekends, at least for freshmen and sophomores. A suitcase campus.
Chadron's students are more likely to be farther from home just because of the population density of western ne. Consequently, more kid'll stick around thru the weekend.

Wayne has sororities and frats. Chadron doesn't. I liked it that way

Both have modern campuses, nice rec centers, nice student unions.

Chadron tends to have a smaller feel to it. Not just because the population is a little smaller, but because the town itslef, as well as the student body, is more rural than wayne.

It'll be easier to find a job in wayne. Wayne itself is a healthy community, and its close to both norfolk and sioux city. walmart has opened jobs up in chadron, but it'll be pretty limited compared to wayne.

That's just what I can think of off the top of my head. really, you cant go wrong with either. Feel free to ask more questions.
