I have been attending this college since 2013. It is affordable and cheap for the academic part, but the campus life is very dull. The professors are nice and educated. It would be better if it was more organized. Overall, no complains. Good programs are offered!

Overall, Chicago State University is a great school. However, if you are looking for a huge campus with a great number of students who are enjoying the college life, then Chicago State U is not for you. If you desire to come back to school and earn a Bachelor's, or Master's Degree along with students who are parents and professors who are understanding and flexible then come on in! The best time is Welcome Week which is the first week of school every semester. Student Activities work really hard to get students involved and gain a feeling of comfort at their new or returning semester. Majority of the students are friendly as well!

I attended Chicago State for one year. The funding for extra curricular was limited and very low. I joined a cheer leading team, went to practices faithfully only to be told my dedication was a waste of time because the time was cut before the first basketball game. The education is not good. Many courses seemed too easy, I did not learn much and felt like my high school was more challenging. The school is also not located in a nice area and does not seem very safe. The dorms are small and the cafeteria does not offer much and is not open for long. I would not recommend going here.
