After Columbus State University
- Very Good423
I chose this school because it was close to home, and it ended up being one of the best decisions I've made! The environment is extremely unique because something fun is always happening. During exam weeks, students pull together and the atmosphere is unbelievable as students team up to help grow and prosper together! The professors are continuously on the look out for ways to help their students in addition to providing a comfortable environment in the classroom. Columbus State may have started off as a "little" school but is growing with every academic year as new students make their way to the Cougar nation!

I didn't know what I'd expect when I first arrived to Columbus State University. It's far from home, and I didn't have any friends. It's a great school with good programs. I would change the food in the Cougar Cafe because it isn't as healthy or as tasty as people make it out to be. The academic programs in the different colleges are very intriguing. I love the Academic Center for Tutoring because there are people who take time out to help students on their coursework. The different events around school from numerous organization keep me engaged and involved on campus. One thing that I wish I could have been prepared for was the financial burdens. I didn't have a job and my loans didn't turn out the way they were supposed to so I wish I had more knowledge in that area. I LOVE the rec center because I can go have fun and work out in so many different ways and it's all included in my tuition! CSU isn't perfect, but it's pretty cool/

My campus is not too diverse concerning faiths. There are many non practicing Christians and atheists, Christians, some Buddhists, muslims, Jewish, and those who try to make there own beliefs off of all of the values of each faith. However, acceptance is very good but as far as introducing your faith- there will be opposition. That is expected of course. There are a handful of homosexuals, many republicans, many democrats. But, there is maturity when it comes to respecting one another despite of differences and that is evident. There are not many cases of bullying that I have seen or hatred toward a race or culture. There is a cool diversity of nationalities, exchange students from as far as Africa, Asia, and Europe. There are students here also from across the country, in places such as Wisconsin. It's great!
