What Students Are Saying

3.54 Average Rating
It is a great historically black university. You will learn a great deal academically, as well as with yourself. Central State is a family based campus.
Janay from Bellwood, IL
I would rate CSU as an 8 on a scale from 1-10, its not perfect- but the environment and teachers are vibrant and upbeat. I truly enjoy CSU and a lot of the traditions too.
