I am planning on applying at Coppin state university. I fell in love with the college during orientation. The campus is jaw-dropping, the academics are even better. I am planning on majoring in sports management, and very few colleges offer that as a major. Coppin State University does though, I can not wait to start my 4-year journey and obtain my degree!

Coppin State University is a small hbcu that many people do not know about. I first found out about the college my senior year and high school at a college fair. Coppin had onsight admissions and I had all my information and was accepted onsight. I am now a sophmore and I love my school. The campus is beautiful, the staff is very hands on and that is because the school is small, so they are very helpful, and understanding. I recommend Coppin State University to everybody. All the facilities are new and clean , campus life is amazing and I am loving my Coppin State expireince.
Coppin State University has been a great experience overall. The students and professors care about your well being and your future success. There could be better food and more campus wide experience. Most people are friendly and welcoming. The Dean could be more interactive on campus and there could be more teachers available to teacher both day and evening classes. Coppin State University is not a big University, therefore if you are comfortable in a smaller classroom setting, this is the place for you. Coppin needs to update some of its technology and resources, other than that, Coppin offers an experience everyone would look forward to having.
