What Students Are Saying

3.69 Average Rating
Cleveland State University is Full of opportunity and people who want you to succeed. CSU has so many student Clubs and activities going on that you may wonder if attend fun events might be a class. CSU also has wickedly awesome discounts with local museums and theaters, getting students into the best seats and places for very nominal prices, if not for free.
Sir Joshua from Cleveland, OH
Cleveland State University is a University worth looking into. The professors are willing to help you in every way they can, if not in the class room they will help immensely during their office hours or on your time. Also, there is alway some kind of activity happening in the Student Center. So when a student has extra time or looking for a short break, the Student Center is the place to go! It is a friendly environment!
