You must take your academics serious at all times. The professors aren't going to baby you and hold your hand. Work comes first and play later. You have to be on top of your game. Make sure you are never procrastinating and be able to manage your time very well. Always study!!! If you need any help your tutoring we have plenty of tutors on campus that are set up at different locations and they are willing to help. I used my math tutor plenty of times and it help me our alot.

The academics can be hard but they are challenging!
The academics at CSU offer a very wide range of degrees and programs and hires very professional staff members and professors that are very focused on the student getting the material. However much of CSU academics deal with Cougarnet which is CSU's official website for students ,but many of the professors don't use it as they prefer Cougarview which creates a lot of back and forth between teacher and student and can be very aggravating. Other than that if CSU has the degree of your chose I would highly recommends them.

academic rigor varies depending on what you're studying, of course. some classes are extremely easy due to either the professor or course itself. however, the rigor of classes increases as you focus more on your major.
Jessica from Senoia, GA
Professors always challenge you to strive for your best and to stay on task with your assignments
Chloe from Tyrone, GA
The professors put forth a great amount of effort to give you the most out of the classes that you take. Yes, the work can be challenging but I wouldn't expect anything less from my college education
