4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Columbus State University is a very great academic as well as extracurricular activity college. The overall experience one gets from being in college for the first time and experiencing the independence is kind of overwhelming but in a good way. Columbus State has so many activities, organizations, and social groups as well as academic groups for an individual to join. Columbus State is a great choice for anyone going to college because the courses challenge you and push yourself to do your absolute best.

3 College Junior

Overall Experience: I am transferring to Columbus from Clayton State University. The impression I got from Columbus was far superior to Clayton, however I have not been at Columbus long enough to establish a solid opinion.

4 College Senior

Greek Life: I think if you're not interested in Greek life then you'll see Greeks as being snobby and etc, but if you're interested in it you won't see them as that. I also think that NPHC's are harder to get into because of the various requirements that you have to meet.

5 College Senior

Off-Campus Housing: I am actually in the process of moving off campus and I cannot wait. I recommend everyone to move off campus

3 College Senior

Party Scene: It's fun until the police comes

4 College Senior

Off-Campus Dining: I love to eat off campus.

1 College Senior

Administration: The campus police treat every African American at Columbus state like criminals

2 College Senior

Campus Food: The cafe was horrible. The workers were mean and it was mandatory to have a meal plan if you stayed on campus. That was another way for Columbus state to get money from you.

3 College Senior

Scholarships: Submit your fasfa early. The earlier the better

3 College Senior

4 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: There are many choices to chose form. Cost depends on what you are willing to pay for a meal. Some restaurants are in walking distance from campus.

3 College Sophomore

Administration: The college treats students like adults, you should know what to do and what not to do. As long as you're following the rules, everything will run smoothly.

3 College Sophomore

Scholarships: My experience with financial aid went smoothly.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Food: The den downtown is the best.

5 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: Living on campus is a great experience. The dorms are very nice at Columbus State University.

4 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: I havent lived off campus but my friends tell me its pretty nice

3 College Sophomore

Party Scene: College is what you make it. You have to know people to have fun.

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: There is nothing great about the surrounding Columbus area but there also isn't anything wrong with it.

3 College Sophomore

Administration: College is college. You get in trouble for doing serious things. They let things go for minor issues.

3 College Sophomore

Scholarships: Dealing with financial aid is a headache. One because the people who work in our office act as if they are incompetent and cannot comprehend any of the financial issues we are dealing with. There biggest issue is saying I do not know, to what I believe are simple questions.

2 College Sophomore

Campus Food: The campus food is really not good. They basically cook the same things everyday, and it is not tasty at all. The cafeteria closes to early. Many other campuses have 24 hours cafeterias or at least some part of the food industry that stay open late for students. Also the fact that you have to have a meal pan. I am feeling forced into spending more money than i have too and to eat the food i do not want to eat. If they just had a cougar cash plan that would be better.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: Living on campus gives you a wonderful opportunity to network and meet long lasting friends. Since you are surrounded by students 24/7 you are bound to communicate with someone and learn something new. Columbus State dorms are exceptionally nice, because they are apartment styled and once you become a upperclassmen the beds get bigger. We have free laundry and our gate cards allows us access into the gate and laundry room. The social atmosphere is really respectable. The housing process can be a little overbearing if you are an underclassman.
