Greek Life: I don't know anything about the sororities or fraternities. I'm not in one and I like to keep it that way.

Recent Alumnus

Campus Strictness: The policies at CSU are very fair and convenient.

Guys & Girls: I meet all kinds of people at school, and I never met anyone that I did not like or felt uncomfortable. Everyone has a different personality and we all treat each other like brothers and sisters.

Diversity: Chicago State is mostly full of African Americans, but there are some whites, Muslims, Hispanics, and Asians too. I feel very comfortable in this environment and everyone treats each other as equals, despite their color, background, religion, or status. Diversity is very accepted in this university.

Facilities: I would say my favorite spot is the library. It is four stories tall and very spacious, quiet, and reliable. I like going there to study, by myself or with other colleagues, use the computers, find books or articles for research, find inspirations for certain assignments, and relax. Plus, the librarians and IT technicians are reliable as well.

Recent Alumnus

Athletics: Students at CSU are very passionate about sports. They would join the basketball team or participate in watching the game.

Nightlife: The parties are always fun to attend to.

Recent Alumnus

Scholarships: Financial aid is available. Staff works hard to make sure students are able to pay for school and provide them scholarship if available.

4 Recent Alumnus

Local Atmosphere: The scenery is very spacious and clean. They always make sure the campus is clean and the grass and trees are trimmed. The events that they have are always related to black culture, which I find very useful and educational. Also, the local attitude towards students is very welcoming. Everyone, (teachers, staff, graduates, and students) always greet each other along the way, even if they do not know each other. I find that very hospitable.

Overall Experience: The professors at CSU are very supportive in making sure everyone passes their class with a high score as possible. They are passionate in what they do, and are very willing to help their students. All the professors I had are extremely nice and will take the time to listen to any complaints or concerns you have, whether it's during their office hours or not.

Recent Alumnus

Overall Experience: They always send out job and internship openings by email. I find that very reliable. They always try to help you find a job whether you are still in school or graduated from school. They want to see you succeed and earn a living.

Off-Campus Dining: THERE IS AMAZING CUISINE ALL OVER THE CITY, BUT IF YOU DO NOT LEAVE THE GENERAL VICINITY OF THE CAMPUS YOU WIL NOT EXPERIENCE IT.

Scholarships: KEEP UP WITH ALL OF YOUR PAPERWORK. DO NOT LOSE ONE COPY OF ANYTHING. STAY METICULOUSLY ORGANIZED. THE PEOPLE IN THE FINANCIAL AID DEPT SEEM TO FORGET THAT THEIR JOB IS TO HELP YOU GET SCHOOL PAID FOR SO THEY MAY CONTINUE TO HAVE A JOB.

Off-Campus Housing: FOR AN OUT OF STATE COLLEGE STUDENT CSU IS NOT ACCOMODATING IF YOUR WISH IS TO LIVE OFF CAMPUS. ANYWHERE DECENT IS TOO FAR AND COSTS TOO MUCH.

3 Recent Alumnus

Local Atmosphere: IT'S CHICAGO, EVERYTHIG CAN BE A QUICK TRAINRIDE AWAY. YOU HAVE TO MAKE THE BEST OF YOUR OWN SITUATION.
