4 College Junior

Online Courses: They were not too much work and very flexible.

4 College Junior

Tuition & Financial Aid: I get enough money for my classes, books and anything else I need.

5 College Sophomore

Academic Flexibility: Because I view myself as a full time student, I schedule my classes so I have about five or six classes a semester. After I work out my school schedule, I give it to my boss in order to make a new work schedule. Where I work is helpful since they know school comes first, and I have a steady schedule. The only issue I faced was when my password expired, that was the first time a password had ever expired, but I just asked for help and it was settled in about five minutes.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: One of the major reasons I chose Columbus State was because the students were so friendly. As a high school student I always thought I would go to a big school, live on campus, do the whole college experience. However, since I was able to go to Columbus State my senior year in high school, I realized that it is not necessary to live on campus to have the experience. Besides I am glad I chose to stay at Columbus State because many people I went to high school with are now realizing how in debt they are, and I am not in that boat.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: At Columbus State I felt at home with the small class sizes, and they are fantastic for one on one time to work with the teacher. Most of the classes are incredibly informative, and are interesting to me. I love the ability of choosing what general education courses because there is such a wide range of them. My first year I did not use rate my professor, and all my teachers were fantastic, my second year I did use rate my professor and some of the teachers were not that great, so I now know that everyone has their own opinion on different teaching styles, sometimes it is better to not know those opinions. Some teachers pushed really hard, and made me work for my grade, others made it easier, but either way I know a lot more than I did before.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: For my personal goals, a degree from this school makes the transition to a four year college really easy. I planned to go to Ohio State after finishing my associates, and I knew I would be accepted which made it so I did not have to worry or feel stressed. I also was recruited on campus to be an Abercrombie and Fitch model which was great because I had just came back from Europe and did not have a job at the time, so being on campus and being recruited was really helpful for me.

College Sophomore

Online Courses: I do not feel comfortable taking courses online, therefore I did not take any online courses.

5 College Sophomore

Student Body: During my first year, I took classes for theater, politics, communications, languages, and some introductory level courses. Because of which I was able to meet people with many different goals, and I met people of many different backgrounds. What was fantastic is everyone is interested in what we all have to say. In my piano class I had friends that helped me study Chinese when we were not busy. In my communications class we had a political science major who used to be a music major. Most of the people I met went to Columbus State because it was an easy way to save money. I met some people from England, Malaysia, Canada, Hong Kong, and Taiwan. When everyone is interested in what others are doing, we learn from each other, and I believe Columbus State had a wide range of students who all are able to learn from to each other.

5 College Sophomore

Tuition & Financial Aid: My first year at Columbus State was actually free because I did their post-secondary enrollment option for high school students, this meant that my high school paid for my first year there. Because Columbus State is only a two year school that meant I only have to pay for one year. For my second year, I received three scholarships which paid about half of my tuition costs. I also received financial aid to cover the rest. For two years of college, I only owe about $6,000.00 which is really good.

College Sophomore

Career Services: Because I go to a community college, most of the students go on to higher education. Although they have a center to help find jobs, it mostly consists of temporary job types to last throughout college.

3 College Sophomore

Academic Experience: Because Columbus State is geared toward associate degrees, my major is not really applicable to the college. However, going to Columbus State is perfect because I am able to finish all my General Education Classes there rather than at an expensive four year school. The workload is bearable with my job, and teachers are understanding if something comes up. One thing that I wish they would change is to make all classes open to everyone. Because I am not with the childhood education program, I am unable to take any of those classes, some of which would be applicable to my major. This is a major drawback, however Columbus State does have a nice transfer program that I am using to attend four year universities after finishing the associate degree at Columbus State.

4 College Sophomore

Academic Experience: Nearly all the professors I have had at Columbus State have been fantastic. Out of twenty classes, I have only had three teachers with some faults. For English, the teacher is really energetic during lectures, and is great apart from being biased in grading. Now, when I write my essays, I try to agree with what my teacher says in my writing in order to receive a high grade. In my history class, I love the lectures, and I love the teacher, but for a history class to be based on fill in the blank tests that the teacher said she did not even believe in, that is wrong. The last teacher is actually from a class I passed with an A. It was for an intro to French class, and the teacher did not have any speaking, and the students basically could have just read the book for that class and not come to class. This teacher read straight from the book during class, and expected everyone to understand what he wanted us to know. If I had not just studied abroad before I took that class I would have failed. Although I might be biased on the French teacher; the semester before I had taken Chinese 1 with a teacher that was fantastic and incredibly helpful.

Campus Resources: On Columbus State's main campus, we have a library and a technical center. Inside both buildings,students can find computers, and students are able to use them anytime during the day. If a student forgets their ID, they are still able to use a computer by going to the library, and having computers in two different locations is fantastic. Many students may be in a hurry to get to their class, and this makes it so they do not have to go out of their way.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Resources: It's a small campus that's close to home.

4 College Junior

Online Courses: I love having online courses, I have a busy schedule and don't have time to make it to class 20 hours a week. I love that I can do things on my own time. I do think however, there should be a more definitive way of knowing exactly when everything is due, it's all online, there should be an accurate calendar.

5 College Junior

Student Body: I've had no issues at all with the student body. Everyone has been so friendly and helpful. I love the people I've met at school and hope that more people become like our student body. It's very diverse and very welcoming. There are lots of things going on at the school to help interact the students and to get them to get to know each other and each other's backgrounds.

4 College Junior

Tuition & Financial Aid: Columbus state is known for being cheap, that's why so many people go there, its affordable in comparison to other schools in the ares. The financial aid is great, Ohio does a good job of covering its bases with the FAFSA and getting people the money they need.

4 College Junior

Campus Resources: There's really no campus other than the parking lot and building. Our athletic fields are great at the school, but the softball fields need work. The library has many books and there are a few computer labs, you usually don't have a hard time finding a place to study or use the internet.

4 College Junior

Academic Flexibility: They are very flexible, but you must register very early for classes before they flexible classes fill up.
