Clayton State University is an excellent choice for a college any student can make for secondary education. The campus is still expanding over time and making renovations, and while renovations may leave some difficulty with traversing around the campus, the campus is exceptionally lively. The dorm rooms are exquisite. They serve as the perfect little nest outside of your home to make your temporary residency as you continue your education. The food is also great, and I always look forward to dining with my favorite meals. The professors who teach the classes always make your day, and while some students may find some instructors a bit taxing, they're all diamonds in the rough. There's a lot of variety and versatility in academic and athletic ventures. Experiences here at Clayton State University will last a lifetime.

Clayton State is a very beautiful and very encapsulating campus with more than enough amenities to keep the idle mind busy. The campus advertises a serene environment fit for studying, learning, and growing all in the same place and will help any student blossom far beyond their wildest dreams. Clayton State University is not short on opportunities to learn and experience new majors, and is close to the city of dreams, Atlanta. Being this close allows for students to network and advertise themselves accordingly to become the future of tomorrow in the working world. Clayton State has been more than adequate in shaping my dreams and ambitions, and this is coming from someone who had neither when enrolling. Are you the right person for CSU, because we need you.
I graduated with a degree from CSU some years back, and have recently returned for another degree. I love my alma mater! The school has undergone multiple renovations, and has not only expanded the physical campus, but their course offerings and degree programs as well. It is well worth it to study at CSU, and it is a really nice place to learn too!
