I would not change anything about CSU for it is surely the place that God intended me to further my education.
Charleston Southern University is a good school. Charleston Southern has great professors and offers many resources for your academics. It is also a small campus that is very easy to get around. I would like to see two things change about Charleston Southern: the student population and the athletics. I think Charleston Southern needs a bigger student population in order to create more diversity. It also needs a better athletics program.
It’s an alright college, but there isn’t much to do on campus. Campus life is pretty dead here. If you can, I would bring a car because there’s many things to do off campus. Also, if you’re looking for college here to be different than high school, there’s not much of a difference. This school is very cliquey, and sims cliques are hard to get into.

I will be starting my first semester at Charleston Southern University for the Spring 2018 term. So far, I have been completely satisfied with any questions regarding my class schedule or new campus. I look forward to the upcoming opportunity.
Big fan of the Christian environment! Small school population makes it easy to connect with people for bible studies, study groups, etc. Plenty of friendly places to hang out and study on campus.
The campus is very small. I liked that there were small classroom sizes that allowed us to interact directly with the professors, but there are few campus clubs that applied to my interests. The dining hall had a lot of healthy options available and I enjoy having the Chik fil A and coffee shop right on campus.
Small university with a BIG vision, I look forward to my time here. The Christian Atmosphere is not overwhelming, but you can tell that the staff works through God's word. They actually care about you and will take the time to help you acheive your goals.
Charleston Southern is an excellent school for students to consider. If you are considering majoring in Nursing, CSU is your best option. The ratio of student to teacher is remarkable. Any questions or problems you have, the professors will do anything to help their students. The campus is beautiful and opportunities are endless.
Great school to get your education at, while also becoming closer to the Lord. However this school treats its students like children! They are bunk beds in the dorms for grown people to sleep in. The dorm room is fit for one person, maybe two, but they shove three people in there. The dorms are old, molded, and have been there since the 1920s. Being a female, having to share a small room with two other girls is bad, but having to share a bathroom with five other females, is worse. Not only are the are the living accommodations horrible, but the food is just as bad. The food is unseasoned, inedible, and sad. The wifi doesn't always work, there's not enough parking, and there's not enough washers and dryers for three floors worth of residents. For the money I'm paying to attend this school, it's not worth it!
Eh! There's a reason why the enrollment here is so low. The academics here are pretty good and the cafe food is alright I guess, but that's about it. As for the location, the university is not even in Charleston it's in North Charleston but it's closer to goose creek and Ladson than anywhere else. The campus life sucks horribly! The dorms, especially the quads, are disgusting!! The bathrooms are horrible, which you have to share with four other people, the rooms are terribly small and they try to fit three people into a room, and there are literally spiders everywhere. The res life here is very very very strict and annoying and will check your room regularly and if things are not perfect you get a ticket. There aren't any open house hours and you can never have anyone of the opposite sex near your room ever, Family member or not! This school is definitely not worth the money they charge. Any intelligent person would take their chances somewhere else. Honestly!
Honestly at this point, I absolutely love this college. All the enrollment people have been so helpful! I am transferring into this college and when I enrolled into my previous college I barely heard anything back from them and had to hunt people down to answer one question! With Charleston Southern I have received at least one or two letters a week on reminding me of things I still need to do before I start in the fall.
This is a good place to go. I would recommend going here because you will truly excel academically. This place is a little pricey if your family doesn't make what's necessary. They have lots of clubs and activities and I really would recommend this college.
Awesome school that gave me another chance at getting a degree! I would recommend them to any student looking for a Christian based school as well!
The professors are very caring and always available to students. Most of the classes except, except for survey classes, are kept small. They have amazing nursing and education programs as well and graduates usually have little to no trouble finding jobs in these majors. This university also promotes internships which helps to get much needed real world experience. The biggest downside is the price. It is expensive and most students would not be able to attend it not for financial aide. They also have a strict code of moral conduct. No drinking, no smoking, and of course no drugs. It is a Christian school but it is not a requirement to attend.
I love CSU! The campus is so peaceful and beautiful, just the right size, and the perfect focus: Christ. There are many opportunities to serve Christ, further my knowledge of the Bible, learn leadership skills, and CSU has quality academic instruction with much rigor. On top of that, the student body includes many different cultures, and the people are just lovely.
I adore the professors and they have a wonderful education program. One thing I as a student would like to see changed, is more attention to students who are not financially able to continue their education.
I love the college that I attend. It is a christian university. It has free tutoring and counseling. They offer many opportunities for their students. They are growing in size and it is exciting to see. I live on campus in the dorms and all of my classes I am able to walk to in less than 10 minutes. I spend a lot of time in the library which is available until midnight. They also have lounges on each floor of the dorms. You can use these for studying or relaxing watching tv with friends. The professors are encouraging and care for their students academic performances.

I love the environment and how friendly everyone is. It is truly such a fun place to be, especially with charleston right down the road. I would recommend this school to anyone wanting to go to school. Even though it is a christian school, not everyone here is a christian.
This is a Bible thumping Christian school. If you're anything like me, you won't be happy here; in fact, you'll probably be close to miserable. The first thing you have got to understand is that if you're looking for a true "college experience" this is not the place for you. You can't have the other sex in your room. You can't drink. You can't have any tobacco on campus. There's little to no parking and if you park illegally campus security will be very quick to give you a ticket. There is 0 greek life on campus. NO PARTIES ARE HELD ON CAMPUS. The professors are very respectful and understanding. Sports teams here are good and the Football team is one of the best in the FCS. If you want to party you'll need to go downtown to a bar (you'll need a fake id if you're under 21). The school itself isn't even in "Charleston". It's in Goose Creek or North Charleston which isn't nearly as nice as Charleston. They drown out the college feel of this school.
I like the program I'm in, but there really needs to be more dorms and upgraded campus facilities! Also the food selection is very slim and is mostly junk food, just a dining hall, coffee shop, and CFA.
