College Freshman

Party Scene: I don't care about the party scene.

College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: The food is better at home.

3 College Freshman

Athletics: We have D1 athletics, but that doesn't make a difference in attendance. Our school spirit is pretty obsolete and that's one of the biggest problems I have with Central. I joined an intramural my first semester and had a pretty good time. The gyms are average if not a little small.

3 College Freshman

Greek Life: There's about one sorority and two fraternities on campus. The general attitude towards them is that they're not taken very seriously. The one fraternity house I visited for a party was small, charged guys to get in and extremely crowded. The one sorority house I visited for a party was less than clean, but I still had a pretty good time and it was very close to campus.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: I've never lived on campus, however I have friends who received an off campus house as second semester freshman relatively easily.

4 College Freshman

Party Scene: Just about the only thing I was satisfied with at Central was the party scene. Campus is more lively in the Fall and you can find multiple parties a night Thursday through Saturday. During the Spring semester when it's cold and no one is willing to walk to get to parties campus becomes pretty boring and most students resort to drinking in the dorms. Because Central is a commuter school you see the same people at parties, but most of them are chill and willing to let you in.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: Close to campus you have your average fast food options (Dunkin Donuts, Dominos, etc.). If you're looking for something fresher and healthier you'll have to travel some ways. Most of the restaurants around campus take Blue Chip which is the money loaded onto your student ID and most deliver pretty late at night. They're easily accessible as well, but get pretty monotonous after awhile.

3 College Freshman

Administration: The only interaction I ever had with the CCSU police is when they helped me jump my car one afternoon. They were very polite and helpful. However, I've heard they can be pretty strict with students who park in restricted areas and give out tickets left and right. Admittedly, drinking does occur on campus and in the dorms and not much is done about it. You can get away with pretty much anything (to an extent) as long as your quite and smart about it.

3 College Freshman

Scholarships: I come from a lower to middle class family with two parents so I didn't receive much aid for the year. I made several attempts to reach out to the school and ask for more aid and all they awarded me was $2,000 a year which is nothing in the grand scheme of things. Because I'm a Connecticut resident and received relatively good grades in high school I expected a little more in terms of financial aid and was completely let down.

3 College Freshman

Campus Food: The food is mediocre at best. My biggest issue was with the salad bar that contained limp lettuce and not many options for toppings. You come to college and hear about the freshman 15 an it's pretty impossible to escape it when you're not offered fresh fruits and vegetables for every meal. It also bothers me that you're unable to use your guest meals in the Devil's Den before 1 PM. I never went hungry at Central, but I was also never blown away with the food.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: My freshman year I lived in Seth North Hall which is a freshman experience dorm. I would recommend living there if you have difficulty making friends and would feel more comfortable living with students in your same position. However, the environment can become suffocating as gossip travels fast and since the dorm is composed of all freshman it very quickly begins to feel like you're back in high school. Basic housing is around $10,000 a year and the quality of the residence halls is average for what you pay. The suite style buildings and the newly built residence hall charge a little more per semester and I've had friends tell me it's worth the extra money. Overall, I was content with my first year housing experience; it wasn't great and it wasn't awful, but what I expected.

3 College Freshman

Athletics: The school spirit is close to embarrassing. No one shows up for games, and no one talks about the teams or the upcoming games.

College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: I have never lived or been to an off-campus house. There are relatively close to campus though.

Administration: The campus is a dry campus, but that doesn't stop anyone from drinking. My Resident Assistant's rarely write anyone up for alcohol usage, when they are well and clear someone is in possession of it.

3 College Freshman

Party Scene: I'm straight edge so I don't go to many parties, but I have heard that the off-campus apartments are the best places to go to parties.
