Coppin State University Reviews
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 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.
I enjoyed my experience for the most part meeting new people and becoming my own person, besides the extremely cramped dorm room, suite door that didn’t lock correctly so if anyone pushed hard enough they could get in (which I had a very unpleasant experience due to this problem) Some of my friends classes weren’t technically accredited courses so they didn’t transfer. I got sick and had to take time off of school and I informed them, they still held on to my credits until I paid off the room and board fee, even though I informed them of the situation and withdrew from my classes before the deadline. They were supportive when I attempted to come back to school they gave me extra time to complete my work. Yet when I was rushed to the emergency room from the dorms and the paramedics closed my suite door and ended up locking my keys in my room, they still made me pay a fee for letting me back in my room even though the situation was out of my control.
