4 College Junior

Diversity: Columbus State University is extremely accepting and diverse cultural environment. Our student community is open-minded and accepting to all topics (ethnicity/economic status/background/political beliefs/sexual orientation/etc). Columbus State is #1 about support and acceptance to all gender, age, and race. Our belief as school system is equality and respect, to engage and express opinion, and assure a safe and comfortable environment.

3 College Junior

Scholarships: My financial aid processed fairly well, however was a hassle due to registration processing.

5 College Junior

Greek Life: Greek Life is beneficial, helpful, and great advocates of community support. Greeks involve themselves in helping non-Greeks in all aspects and support. As a non-Greek, its great to witness the Greeks of any fraternity/sorority engaging themselves with the student/academic community and encouraging others to participate/join.

4 College Junior

Athletics: Columbus State University athletics are phenomenal and are at an all time high level. Our team performance gradually increase by support of fans and within the team and athletic facilities. With continuous support and school spirit from outside of Columbus State and within the school, we're able to 100% performance, determination, and focus in our games on the field and off the field.

College Junior

Campus Dining: Never ate on campus. I always go to school and leave and eat elsewhere.

5 College Junior

Majors: In my major if Criminal Justice, CSU works very closely with the Columbus Police Department in internships and other jobs to help further our careers. Its a great way of giving back to the University and it helps give awesome hands on experience. It helps us get a great lead.

College Junior

Majors: I've not had an internship but I know it's available to me once I become a Junior.

4 College Junior

Guys & Girls: I dont' feel out of place when I;m on campus. It seems as though everyone is there for a purpose, which is to get work done to graduate.

4 College Junior

Off-Campus Housing: I don't live in student housing because I have my own apartment off campus, however over the years the housing has expanded greatly. It seems as though the students really like it, but I don't have any first hand knowledge.

3 College Junior

Off-Campus Dining: Not very many vegetarian options nor organic unless you go to the grocery store. There really isn't one in walking distance of CSU. They are all on another exit.

4 College Junior

Nightlife: I really don't party but when I used to party a few years ago it was fantastic. Always a great crowd of people but they don't too anything too crazy that involves us in hometown scandals.

4 College Junior

Athletics: CSU has a fantastic basketball team as well as cheerleading is very important as well!! A lot of town support on these sports!!

4 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: Columbus State University had plenty of security. The safety of the campus was great and I always felt secure.

3 College Sophomore

Local Atmosphere: Local atmosphere was decent. Campus us located directly across from the mall which is very convenient. There is also a park and plenty of trails down the street from the school. Downtown life was historically pretty.

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: I preferred taking my own lunches to school, because healthy eating options were scarce outside of campus. Campus had healthy restaurants, but I am always trying to save money. It was still expensive to eat on campus.

4 College Sophomore

Facilities: Columbus State University had one of the cleanest, eco-friendly, and aesthetically beautiful campuses I have seen. The buildings are well maintained. Student life was always lively, friendly and safe. Access to the various departments were easy. My favorite area to study at was in the courtyard. They had trees, benches, and an outdoor eating area which was a perfect place for studying individually or in a group. The library was also another favorite place to relax or study. Students can take a break on the bean bag chairs, the mesh lazy seats, or in the private study rooms. I typically used a private study room, which was secluded, and better for ultimate concentration. During down time I used the recreational area. Their gym was almost spotless, plenty of gym equipment, which was well-maintained and the student help centers all around were well-informed and always on their "A" game.

4 College Senior

Local Atmosphere: The atmosphere is beautiful! I absolutely love the campus!

College Senior

Off-Campus Housing: I don't know much about the off-campus housing, but from what I've heard people are happy with living off-campus.

4 College Senior

Facilities: The RiverPark campus is amazing. The classes are within walking distance from the dorms and the school dining, and the dorms are right on Broadway and close to the RiverCenter and the River Walk. It's a beautiful campus!

4 College Senior

Facilities: There are great places to study if you need to get out of the dorms downtown. There are so many things to see and do. It's lively on the weekends as well.

2 College Senior

Campus Dining: The dining hall at the RiverPark campus is actually pretty bad. Everything is overpriced at the C-store and the hot meals either are not very good or they take forever to make. We complain about it often, but we still eat their and spend our fake money and meal plans. It's interesting. I still like going?

3 College Senior

Campus Strictness: It's not too strict but not too lenient! It really gives students freedom but keeps them out of trouble. Sometimes.

4 College Senior

Diversity: Columbus State University is extremely diverse when it comes to race, religion, and sexual orientation. We have people from other countries studying in our music program, and it's truly incredible to hear their stories!

5 College Senior

Majors: Columbus State's Theatre program is amazing, and I hate that I spent the majority of my freshman year in my dorm and not getting to know my fellow majors. I love the program so much though, and yes I would do it all again if I had the opportunity. My career goals involve going straight to Walt Disney World and working as a face character, and I know someone from my school who has a job there. I have no concerns about my career, but I don't feel a part of the program and I know it's my fault.

3 College Senior

Majors: Getting into the program is simple: You audition with either two contrasting monologues or a monologue and a song and afterwards you talk with the theatre department faculty. They ask you about theatre, what it means to you, and your career goals. The only challenge I encountered was waiting to receive the email saying whether I was accepted or not!
