I have had a great experience at Central so far. My advisor has been extremely helpful for the past couple of years, and I've had some great professors who were able to gauge my interest in classes I wouldn't normally enjoy, and they really care about their students. The campus is also beautiful!
Review Central Connecticut State University
CCSU is a great school to attend because it is a community of amazing people, professors, and administrators that want to see you succeed. It's an overall positive and warming environment! CCSU is a family.
I never attended CCSU but my cousin did and I loved it. The dorm was alittle tight but that's how all traditionals are. I met so many friendly people upperclassmen included. The first couple of days I kept forgetting where my cousin dorm room was, there was always someone to help me. I really enjoyed the food. There was always something going such as extracurricular activities or events and parties. If I wanted to live in Connecticut I would've definitely attended Central. My cousin also said this school was great educationally wise. I do recommend this school. I just don't really care for the area the school is in.
