What Students Are Saying

3.71 Average Rating
When I first visited the campus I was surprised at the size and resources available at CSU. The advisors and administration is extremely helpful, especially being that I had never been on this campus before and had no idea what to do or where to go to get everything complete for a smooth entry into the university. With the great faculty and staff, beautiful campus, and huge array of resources I can't wait to take my next step towards my educational goals at Columbus State University!

Pretty great school with a beautiful campus. Majority of the teachers are genuinely nice and want you to succeed in their class and even sometimes go out of their way to make it happen, which is great for students. Help is everywhere and it is free!!
