4 College Junior

Health & Safety: It okay but it can be better.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: Coming in as a transfer student Cleveland state University has been very welcoming.

4 College Senior

Health & Safety: I usually see campus police when I am at school. Additionally, CSU does a great job at keeping students updated about incidents on campus via email.

4 College Senior

Overall Experience: I believe that Cleveland State prepares its students very well for their careers. Cost of attendance is low, and faculty members are leaders in their fields. Any student who applies herself/himself will reap rewards by attending CSU.

3 College Senior

Campus Housing: I have not personally lived on campus, but I know that there is a wide variety of living arrangements for students to choose from. Many students commute, but those who live on campus can choose from traditional dorms, dorms with a lot of common areas, and apartments.

3 College Senior

Greek Life: Greek life at CSU is present but not prevalent. It is an option for students who want to take advantage of it, but is not very visible for students who don't want to take advantage of it.

4 College Senior

Athletics: Cleveland State has varsity athletics, but I haven't heard much about them during my time here. Where CSU really shines is in its intramural and club sports. There is a rich array of options for students who want to participate.

4 College Senior

Overall Experience: Cleveland State has been a place of much personal growth for me as well as a place of learning and progressing toward my degree. Its urban setting has enabled me to study alongside people of truly diverse backgrounds--ages, ethnicities and nationalities, religious traditions, sexual orientations and gender identities, and academic and professional backgrounds all vary widely at CSU. This has created a more open-minded and tolerant worldview in me, and has facilitated the development of interpersonal skills in addition to gaining competence in my field of study.

That incredible diversity has been essential to Cleveland State's identity since its inception, and is what makes the university so special. It is a public university placed in the middle of a city for the purpose of educating the people of that city. Many students are commuters, many are professionals changing careers, and some are traditional students. All come to CSU for their own reasons, and the resulting interactions and experiences are truly special.

It has been truly special for me to come to Cleveland State from my small town and experience college with such a diverse group of students, and for that reason I would attend CSU again if I could.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Really a diverse and interesting setting, everyone is very open and filled with enthusiasm

Overall Experience: I would choose CSU again for the location and ease of accessibility. Every professor I've met so far has been helpful and I have had no trouble scheduling classes.

3 Recent Alumnus

Overall Experience: Too much money for little value. Terrible parking and absorbent fees. Class availability is not conducive to working adult students.

4 College Junior

Health & Safety: Cleveland State University is located in the heart of downtown Cleveland, where there are multiple campus police officers and security guards throughout the campus. There are multiple resources available to both students and staff to report an illegal behavior.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: The quality of the career services on campus seems to be above average; from the CSU website dedicated to careers and internships, to the field adviser's available in addition to students general academic advisor. The field advisors are unique to each academic college, student many schedule appointments to discuss career and internship opportunities.

Athletics: Cleveland State University offers a variety of sports and activities for those students that are athletes.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: My overall experience at Cleveland State has been great, I admire the level of diversity the campus offers, that diversity even spills over to the course offering which I greatly appreciate. All staff that I've encountered those far seem to be experts in their fields and are eager to transfer that same passion and knowledge to their student at.

4 College Senior

Health & Safety: There are some problems like with any university. Safety and security is as good as it can be given that there are tons of students. They seem to respond quickly, and have new technology like apps to raise the safety standards.

4 College Senior

Campus Housing: I have plenty of friends in campus housing and they love it.

3 College Senior

Overall ExperienceWhat's this?

View student contributors

Cleveland State's motto is "the city is our campus" and with a setting like this, how can a student not enjoy all it has to offer? The city opens doors to many opportunities. No matter what major you are, the teachers are personable and easy to build a rapport with, and, most importantly, they help students gain a better understanding of the real world. With 16,000 students, you get all of the advantages of both large and small campuses, which is hard to find at other schools. The size of the classes helps students better understand the material and makes it easier to become knowledgeable in their desired areas. The city provides plenty of learning experiences that cannot be found at many other colleges.

The majority of students at Cleveland State will probably find a reason to complain about something that has taken place on campus, but the majority of those students, when asked, said they would pick CSU all over again. Once you come here, it will be hard to see yourself anywhere else because, like stated before, it provides you with many opportunities and advantages that might not be offered at other colleges. CSU is not just a place to learn what you need to know for a career, but it is also a place to grow and interact. Without the experience of Cleveland State University, a student could be missing out on the next door to their life, and that is a chance that should not be taken.
