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.

Central State University is a great institution that has been in existence for 125 years. My experiences at this university have been on average educationally uplifting. Here the students must apply themselves in order to receive positive outcomes. I returned to school as a non-traditional student in 2010 and have enjoyed learning from the qualified professors, in addition to experiencing other students who have many of the same or similar experiences such as myself, and who too have returned to school to complete their degree programs. My graduation date is scheduled for 2013 and I am looking forward to moving forward to graduate school in the fall of 2013. The Central State University slogan states that change is central and for me this has been quite a slogan for me to uphold!

The. Best. Instructors. Period. There are many things that go wrong at Central State University. Faculty and staff are not one of them. Every employee loves what they do and will not hesitate to help you. Professors are very knowledgeable in their respective areas (and everything else it seems!) and want every student to do their best. Often times when a student is struggling, they will call him/her into their offices and ask how you are doing, do you need any help with anything, is there anything I can do. If they don't know the answer to something they will point you to someone who can or get back with you later. I love all of my teachers!
