Chadron’s “college town” charm has won over many students and faculty members. Northwest Nebraska has been described as the convergence of many popular characteristics. Chadron is the seat of Dawes County, about half of which is open to the public for hiking, biking, hunting, fishing and other recreational activities. The surrounding landscape is known for its pine-studded buttes that stand above golden wheat fields and pastures dotted with cattle and wildlife.
