I graduated with a degree from CSU some years back, and have recently returned for another degree. I love my alma mater! The school has undergone multiple renovations, and has not only expanded the physical campus, but their course offerings and degree programs as well. It is well worth it to study at CSU, and it is a really nice place to learn too!

This is my second year of attending Clayton State University. My first year was great, I opened up as person and began to discover the type of life I wanted to live. I'm also an athlete for the school, the athletic family of Clayton State is supportive to all athletes and academically rich with dynamic individuals with drive. Living arrangements are different as freshman compared to upperclassmen, however its a learning curve for how to handle roommate situations and have compromise for others around you. Overall, I enjoy Clayton State I treat this school like my official home away from home.

Clayton State is unique because of the diversiy on campus. This school has very helpful reources. Students have many options in learning at this school. The professors go over and beyond in helping students. There is fun students activities to engage in on campus. Its also a beautiful campus with lakes and ducks. As well as geese that walks on campus. I wouldnt trade any other school for Clayton State University!
