CCSU is a campus like no other. It is one that has a upbeat and welcoming vibe to it. When walking through the well kept campus there is a diversity of students am faculty that make the campus come to life. I made so many friends including some within my major that I know I'm going to be metworking with throughout my 4 years here. The campus always made me feel safe with the safety posts and also on campus police. Everything you need is right on campus and classes are a 5 minute walk from most dorm buildings. I love this school and all that is has to offer me.

I was a transfer student to this university and it was the best decision I could have made. The business program is phenomenal and I am learning so much. I love the campus environment and I am getting involved on campus though the club volleyball team, a on-campus job, and clubs. The people are very friendly and welcoming. We have many division one athletes which make games very exciting.

I love this school. I do wish, however, that we had more sections for the engineering classes. Sometimes it's hard to get into them.
