First, for those who have ill sediments regarding CSU is simply because they didn't make it! CSU offers a diverse group of socio economic AA's; you will get it all. The party scene at CSU is quite intense, I might add. If you can't balance an active social life and your academics you will FLUNK out of CSU, trust me so don't waste your money or time! So many students come to CSU with a belief that this will be a walk in the park, but the professors are avid disciplinarians. Don't show up to class and don't do your work, you will fail! I could have went to any university and I am beyond gracious of the opportunity and experience I was offered at CSU. Majority of the millennial alumni are proud Centralians who are doing very well in their profession, in addition to getting advanced degrees. "If you can make it at Central, you can make it anywhere" is the motto.
For Central For State!

What's makes my school unique and so great is that with it being smaller university, you get more hands on experience with the materials being learned. You get those one on one sessions with professor. Where as in bigger university most of the time you don't have that luxury. Also, when you're grouped with tons of people who are together for a common goal is the feeling in the world because everyone wants success at Central State. I play on the football team so that makes my experience even better because I am subject to a lot more things.
