3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I don't know, I don't know.

4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: Campus security offers several benefits.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I am pleased with the assistance from most of the financial aid office and enrollment services.

4 College Junior

Greek Life: the fraternities and sororities are very friendly and are apart of other organizations on campus.

4 College Junior

Athletics: it's easy and safe to get into the facility and there are safety precautions for anyone attending the school to enter, but outsiders have to pay $8 to workout and be with someone who attends the school.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: Since starting Columbus State, I have made new friends and some of them have helped me break out of my shell. My professors have help me achieve my true potential and has help many other students in having a better understanding on the subject at hand. My second English professor has help me improve my writing greatly, I went from making D's on papers to B+'s.

3 College Junior

Campus Housing: I do not live on campus, but I do have friends that do. They say it is very convenient being so close to their classes. They also say that the quality is pretty good and it is a clean facility. I stayed in the dorms while participating in orientation. I found the dorms to be pretty nice. If I lived on campus, I believe I would enjoy it.

3 College Junior

Greek Life: Again, I do not have time to participate in Greek Life, so I cannot answer this question truthfully.

3 College Junior

Athletics: I do not have time to engage in sports at my college. I work full time after class so I am not able to attend sports activities.

3 College Junior

Overall Experience: I have enjoyed my time as CSU, but I feel as though the faculty and staff is not up to par. They need some workshops to better themselves with communication and assisting students in need. The education that I have earned so far has been well earned and the teachers have been overall effective.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Everything about CSU/Schwob is marvelous. The atmosphere is rather competitive, which always pushes me to strive to better that I was yesterday.

3 College Senior

Greek Life: There's very little to do, so it's one of the only ways to make friends and go to events. Some of them have pretty awful reputations.

2 College Senior

Overall Experience: The school needs a lot of work. Professors can be hit or miss, and many of them do care about students who care about the work, but the entire atmosphere of the University rests in a kind of lazy disregard for, well, everything. Administrators are notorious for playing "not my problem" and directing students to other offices instead of helping. Services like internet are spotty at best, and dorms are expensive for what you get.

The biggest problem, really, is just that nobody seems to give a damn. I know students in their senior year of the English program who can barely cobble together a paragraph. What are these professors doing? I don't know.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: The cost of housing is about $2,500-3,000+ a semester which is ridiculous. Granted, there is the room, activity fee, and housing but I still think it's a litte pricey. I lived on off-campus housing my first year so it was more like apartments. The rooms were really spacious and I only had 2 roommates. They were very cool and I never had any big issues with them. In Courtyard 1, I love the social atmosphere, however the dorms are MUCH smaller. If you don't mind being stuck in a small room, then get a private bedroom and share a bathroom but I like my space. The RA's are helpful and cool to talk to when you go to the clubhouse to chill out.

4 College Sophomore

Greek Life: Greek life is really cool to me. Even though a lot of people don't understand it, I would just love to have that bond with other successful women that love to help the community as much as I do. Greek life includes everyone in their fun with events like probates, parties, step shows, athletic games and more. A lot of non-Greeks either think that the whole Greek life is either stupid or fascinating. There is no in between. There is only one big Greek building for all of the Greeks. There are no Greek houses .

4 College Sophomore

Athletics: There is an athletic fee that is included in our tuition, so that should be an incentive to play a sport at school. The tennis court is huge, there is more than one gym for athletics, and the school spirit is really high on campus.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: 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/

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Living on campus can either be a great or horrible experience. The cost of the housing and meal plans are absolutely ridiculous, especially considering they make you purchase a meal plan. Maryland Circle is probably the best place to stay out of all the choices because of more housing options such as space and accessories. Another giant factor that determines if you like your housing experience is the roommates you are given. The housing process is extremely easy if you're not working through a loan. Loans require a lot of time and processing which complicates the process of staying on campus.

3 College Freshman

Greek Life: I'm not a part of Greek life, but they do events sometimes around campus. I wouldn't say they improve anything around campus. We have one Greek building that most non-Greeks don't go into because it would probably be extremely awkward. The housing is like any other housing on campus-- there isn't anything special about it.

5 College Freshman

Athletics: I was going to play soccer at this school because the team is truly one of a kind and makes it far every season in their division. At Columbus State University, signs are posted, and plenty of messages are sent out to let students know that an event is taking place. It's always announced the next day how the games went, so it's nice to still learn the outcome of the game if you weren't able to make the game that day. I guess the most mind blowing aspect was how one student of a club can play sports, and when they have a game, that entire club will go to cheer them on and let them know that they are supported!

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: 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!

3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: i have loved some of my professors and struggled with some also

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: everyone helps with all they can

3 College Freshman

Health & Safety: i think there are safety issues everywhere and people just have to pay attention to your surroundings

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: i didnt live on campus very long
