Central State University Reviews
Review Central State University
It has been an awesome experience! The professors are very knowledgeable and caring. They want you to succeed. The campus is close knit like a family. My major isn't History, but I've learned so much about my history just by being on campus. Attending Central State Universiry was the best decision I've made in my life!
Currently my experience at Central State University has been amazing. What I love about this University is that it is a Historical Black College/University so the cultural of the school is great, the family-type environment is very helpful. The instructors and professors actual care about helping the students and making sure they understand the material that is taught. The overall communication at Central needs improvement and the enthusiasm of the student body needs progression.
First, for those who have ill sediments regarding CSU is simply because they didn't make it! CSU offers a diverse group of socio economic AA's; you will get it all. The party scene at CSU is quite intense, I might add. If you can't balance an active social life and your academics you will FLUNK out of CSU, trust me so don't waste your money or time! So many students come to CSU with a belief that this will be a walk in the park, but the professors are avid disciplinarians. Don't show up to class and don't do your work, you will fail! I could have went to any university and I am beyond gracious of the opportunity and experience I was offered at CSU. Majority of the millennial alumni are proud Centralians who are doing very well in their profession, in addition to getting advanced degrees. "If you can make it at Central, you can make it anywhere" is the motto.
