Clayton State University Reviews
Clayton State University has not only become my second home, but the foundation to my new and memorable journey. Inarguably, the most substantial part of this environment are the genuine people. Whether you are getting to know your peers or having a heart-to-heart with your professors- it is inevitable that everyone will leave a positive impact on your life. Aside from the emotional and social support system, CSU offers a wide range of propitious majors which are fittingly held by the most dedicated and scholarly professors. In addition, there are also academic help centers and a personal counseling department located on campus. The one thing about CSU that I would change is the freshman curriculum. There are various courses first-year students are required to take, yet gym is not one of them that is enforced. Valuing our body and making it a priority to take care of it throughout college is extremely vital for our overall well-being.
I was hesitant about attending Clayton State initially. It is a very small school that is known by many outside of the area it is located in. From the outside looking in it would seem that there isn't much going on; and not a place i would desire to spend my college years. Although after spending a few semester at that institution I have completely changed my tune. I have realized that while it may not be the biggest institution with the most resources/opportunities, it is still sufficient for a young adult seeking higher education. In fact for the cost, it is more than sufficient, this University excels at providing students everything they need to be successful during and after their time attending Clayton State University.
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.
