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.
Review Clayton State University
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!
I've had a wonderful experience at CSU! I am transfer student who has attended one other university before CSU. My admissions experience was great. I had no problems with admissions and advisement. The mandatory advisement each semester is great help and I know that this is a measure taken to make sure I take the required courses for graduation. My major is in Marketing which has proven to be the best choice for me. I am almost junior now and looking forward to graduate from CSU. I love being a CSU Laker! Go Lakers!
