As a commuter living a short distance from campus, Cleveland State was convenient. Distance is not what makes it an amazing school or what determined my decision to attend CSU. It was the great professors, programs/majors, student life, and affordability. There are numerous organizations and events to participate in and ways to become active at the school. The campus is beautiful and being able to walk off campus and immediately be in Downtown Cleveland to experience the city is awesome! It is a large school but you will not be just a number if you take your education, time, and life seriously. Just like in the real world you make your education, time, and life what it can be when you work hard and connect to the professors and students. Regardless of where you attend, only then can your educational goals will be fulfilled.
