What Students Are Saying

3.57 Average Rating
Apply early to all of your prospective schools. Gauge costs realistically; Really think about how much you are willing to spend on college, and then make sure the college you choose is Worth it.
MM from EH, CT
go to CCSU. its a great school for local and out of state students. i don't regret it at all.
Dillion from Bristol, CT
I would suggest that if you go to this school buy your books online i bought mine at half.com and the cost so much less than they would have at the bookstore because being a college student we try and save as much money as we can because college is expensive. Also I would suggest that If you are a girl stay in the all girls dorm. I know that it may not sound to exciting but we have bigger dorms and it is quite a bit quieter here than in the other dorms. Finally i would suggest applying to the honors program because it has a great scholarship and you get to take some pretty cool classes because of it. Also if you dont like Central are other schools that go along with it like eastern and Western Connecticut State University that you could look into
Jessica from South Windsor, CT
Make sure you chose a school that you can afford. You do not want to be paying for college ten years after you graduate. Central is just as good as any private school, except thousands of dollars cheaper.
Kayla from Bristol, CT
Choose a college that is good for you; don't choose it based on friends. You will learn lots of materials in a smaller class instead of a huge class. Also, meet with professors they aren't mean; they're there to help
Adam from Bridgeport, CT
Know full well beforehand that the weekends are dead on the weekends, so if you are looking for a party school, Central is not for you. I would suggest joining a club or team to get to know people on campus. I, personally, do not mind the commuters because I am friends with a lot of the athletes who always stay the weekends.
Danielle from New Milford, CT
My tip would by to try to get involve. I am a commuter and I try to get the "college experience" by joining clubs, doing volunteer work and participating in the different activities that the school offer. Also do not be afraid, faculties and other members are here to help student to achieve their goals.
Lisselot from Torrington, CT
Be prepared to work harder than you ever have before, CCSU is no walk in the park. Be ready to be challenged, physically sometimes, but very more so intellectually. Join clubs, get involved on campus, central has alot to offer.
