4 Recent Alumnus

Guys & Girls: There is an extremely wide range of people that attend this school. All different types of people with different personalities. It is very easy to find some people that you share common interests with.

4 Recent Alumnus

Overall Experience: Aside from some of the Professors not being able to keep their classes very interesting, the school is great. The food is not nearly as bad as people make it out to be and if you put in the effort, you really learn a lot.

4 Recent Alumnus

Overall Experience: There is a Travelers office right on campus and the Professors really make an effort to help students find internships and network with professionals in their area of study.

3 College Sophomore

Diversity: The student body is quite diversified on most measures. Age appears to be the one area without significant diversity, with most of the student body under 25. Most of the students are accepting of this diversity, even contributing to a student who is trying to get gender reassignment.

College Sophomore

Campus Strictness: As an adult student, I don't spend much recreation time on campus.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Dining: They post dinner hours as 4:30 to 7:30, but I have never seen them have dinner service ready before 5:00, so students who have evening classes can't get the regular dinner service. The late dinner service always has the same options pizza, pasta, burgers and grinders, none of which make for a good steady diet.

College Sophomore

Health & Safety: I live off campus and have never had to use the campus health service. I have seen campus security roaming in common areas frequently.

3 College Sophomore

Guys & Girls: There are many attractive students of both sexes on campus. Most of the guys trend toward jeans and t-shirts while the girls outfits seem to get more alluring as the temperatures raise.

4 College Junior

Health & Safety: The police is always present but not overbearing. They take precautions especially during any holiday period to do a show of force to avoid issues like accidents and so fourth. They pay close attention to detail and if your car is parked in the wrong lot you will get a ticket.

3 College Junior

Overall Experience: The major issues I've encountered as a transfer student is that the transfer process was not what I expected. Many of my college credits were not evaluated as equivalent to the classes offered at CCSU. They were devaluated to just electives and it's still an ongoing process that I'm dealing with right now. As well as the issue with the school holding my financial aid, and my student loans meanwhile I'm attending school full-time and have no money to buy or rent my books.

4 College Junior

Facilities: There is something for everyone whether you enjoy sports, yoga, dance, or just like to shop at the bookstore which has a variety of college pride items such as athletic wear, rain boots, shirts, even child clothing.

4 College Junior

Facilities: I enjoy going to the student center that is the place everyone goes to hang out between classes, get lunch, or just get a coffee. The bookstore is located at the student center as well so you can go there and buy any supplies you may need. There's a printing station, a DJ booth, a post office, a game room with pool tables and if your feeling like you need a quiet study or a lounge area you can go to the 2nd floor and have a more relaxing and peaceful experience.

1 College Junior

Scholarships: I have had so many issues to getting my financial aid, not because I don't qualify but because the school has held to my financial aid, student loans and put holds on my account. I can't even buy my books for summer semester because I have not received my financial aid yet! It has been the worst experience.

1 College Junior

Off-Campus Housing: I have not received any help in looking for off campus housing, not once has anyone asked me about housing. Off campus apartments can start at $1,050 + I have to live off campus because I have a daughter so campus life is not for me.

College Junior

Campus Housing: I do not live on campus I am a single mother and rent an apartment.

4 College Junior

Guys & Girls: Everyone is always well dressed, students and professors are very professional, respectful, very proud group of people. There are several groups that tend to dress with a 60s look but everyone is accepting to other people. Sports is a big thing in our school, this is something everyone takes pride in.

4 College Junior

Diversity: The campus life is very accepting from the different ethnic groups, gay, bi-sexual, lesbian, black, white, Hispanic, Asian, etc. everyone is looked upon the same. I have not seen any discrimination from professors to the students, one student to another, everyone is demonstrated respect both ways.

3 College Junior

Greek Life: I don't believe there is a specified area for Greeks or special events.

3 College Junior

Academics: It is a long and expensive process there are few internships available right now and not many companies are hiring in my areas of interest. Also getting into the Nursing program to go for a B.S.N. is very difficult due to the high demand for the Nursing program and only a select few are chosen for the program every Fall semester.

3 College Junior

Academics: Depending on many factors determines whether or not you are allowed into your program of interest. The registration process is one that may be very difficult especially if you are a transfer student. If you are lucky enough to have your credits transfer in, they only count them as electives and you are left to take the same course over again with them. I don't agree with that process.

4 College Junior

Majors: I had internships at UMASS Hospital, Saint Vincent Medical Center, and Christopher House Nursing Home. I worked in various departments to include Interpreter Services, Radiology, Information Desk, patient care departments, and Alzheimer's Unit. I also worked as a Certified Nursing Assistant in Notre Dame DuLac which I worked in the Alzheimer's Unit.

4 College Junior

Majors: My career goals are to earn my B.S.N with a minor in Pyschology and work as a Registered Nurse taking care of the elderly population. It is very important to me because I have spent years working with Alzheimer's patients, and I believe I can make a difference in many peoples lives not only the patient, but also help their families who are also affected by the disease. My biggest fear is that I don't have the financial resources to make it all happen.

4 College Junior

Academics: I can learn something new everyday

3 College Junior

Academics: some of the rooms are old. As well as some of the professors are mean, but there are some good ones of both

3 College Junior

Majors: I feel that psychology is the easiest Major to get into which is the one I am in. But there are others that are extremely hard to maintain grades in
