Phenomenal Organizational Leadership Master's Program with an innovative curriculum directed by Dr. Joslin who hand selects talented faculty members. Convenient access to wifi study area. Small student population. Well maintained campus with water fountains adapted to fill a water bottle at the press of a button. Friendly and accessible college president.

Small $5 cafeteria buffet that is really only okay for desserts. Christina's place is overpriced and nothing a peanut butter and jelly sack lunch sandwich couldn't beat. Small bookstore not worth the visit to buy/rent textbooks, however there are some fun accessories and good sale buys at the end of each semester. Library and student achievement center both have rude staff.

Very focused on academics and studies, and the professors I have had thus far want you to gain the right knowledge for your profession. Not a lot of students get involved which does not help social life (it is a suitcase campus). I have heard great things about the prestige of the college's academics. Tuition is still expensive even they are "reducing" costs- also cutting scholarships.

For as much as CSM tries to promote their athletics, they still struggle to get participation. Part of that is just the fact that undergrad is all girls. However they have recently got several new coaches and I think that was a very positive move on the part of CSM!
