What is your overall opinion of this school?

Central Connecticut State University is a great school academically if you take advantage of the opportunities available to you. As an alumni student, I can say that if you put in the necessary work, you will earn the grades that you deserve. The professors I had in the Accounting program were always available during office hours or by appointment. Many of them are advocates for your success, they want you to do and perform well... in fact, there are still a few professors I still keep in touch with, and I have asked them for multiple recommendations. I recommend prospective students to apply for the Honors Program. The Honors Program provides a generous scholarship for four years. In addition, their curriculum consists of classes that cover most general education courses, relating to geishas, robots and sex, and time travel. Outside of class, the clubs I checked out were amazing or mediocre, depending upon the club leaders intent and involvement. As for on-campus living experiences, I recommend Mid-Campus housing, although it is slightly more expensive than the other dorms. The food from the dining hall was at best, alright on the good days. I found myself often buying Starbucks instead. It is also very easy to make friends in classes, the student center, cafe, library, and more. As for the weekends, recently in the last few years the campus police have been shutting down house parties as soon as they begin. Therefore, most people (with their fakes, or 21+) crowd into Elmers, Russian Lady, or West Hartford bars (I personally love Division West). In sum, I found my undergraduate experience at CCSU to be an enjoyable experience, and I recommend prospective students to visit the school and see if they like it!

What is your overall opinion of this school?

CCSU was a wonderful school to attend from 2012-2016. I was able to make friends within the first 48 hours due to the programs offered by the Office of Student Affairs and the tight knit all female dorm I was in. My academic experience was phenomenal. The Physical Education Teaching department are made up of some of the best professors in the University and I also loved each English course I took. While I didn't too pay much attention to athletics, they were fun when I attended and the social life was what we made it. I never felt pressured to get involved into risky behavior and felt supported in my choices.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I think CCSU is a great option for people who are struggling financially. I hear they help many students with aid, unfortunately, I am not one of them but the tuition is still cheap compared to other schools. CCSU is also very close to me since I am a commuter so it seemed like the right choice. The school is a decent school for commuters however I have heard that it is boring if you live on campus because there are not many activities.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I love CCSU. I think I have received an exceptional education here. Attending this university has opened up so many opportunities for me. They offer wonderful study abroad trips both for traditional and non traditional students. They have several different clubs and organizations that you can join. The career center helps students with finding jobs after graduation and during school. The professors are passionate about what they teach, and the classes, for the most part, are interesting.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I really enjoy being a student here. I love that the professors are available to me and are very willing to make the time to meet. The Student center has quiet areas so I can study. Parking isn't the greatest but I try to get early classes to avoid that issue.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

My overall opinion of this school Is that it sucked. Never could find anyone to help me with my academics and all the professors i got i could never understand with their accents. And to me it seemed like that nobody really cared about any of the students grades. Also, the food is horrible they always give the seconds to the Devils den kids from the banquet hall.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

CCSU is a great commuter school. It is right in the middle of everything. The price played a big facts into applying here. I live at home and my tuition is a bit above $5000 per semester. That is way better to other schools I wanted to go to or even my friends go to. They are paying $30000 and way in debt already. The school is constantly bettering themselves. Facilities are clean, classes are average 20-25 people, which I prefer. Lots of sports clubs and activities to attend to. Professors that I have are very helpful during office hours. Honestly nothing but good things in my experience. The only big thing is parking can be annoying, it’s very limited since there are so many commuters. And the campus on the weekends or nights is pretty dry, since majority of the the school is a commenter. But that doesn’t affect me.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Central Connecticut State University is a great, tight-knit school made personally for students to succeed. There is plenty in the budget for all sports, groups, and clubs imaginable. They even let us propose our own events and club start-ups. Faculty encourages everyone to get involved and meet new people. The connections I've made so far are with people I plan on staying with for life. I am able to work in academic material other schools I applied to did not have all the resources for. However, CCSU allows me to get free tutors when I start to lag behind on a subject. The directors only want us to follow and meet our goals as students and people.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

its not really all that bad, some professors really need to up their speed or re-do their lesson plans, i also think they need to start posting more often because a lot of them don't post grades or schedules, it really leaves students in the dark about how their doing in the classes or when anything is going to happen. ive had a professor who was only available during class hours and didnt post anything online ever. it was a very rough class and i didnt end up passing because of the lack of communication i was able to have with the teacher, i need to be able to talk to someone if necessary and be able to get feedback in return instead of someone thnking of it as just their paycheck.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I transferred to CCSU for my sophomore year and it was the best decision that I have ever made. My freshman year I went to a school where I didn't really fit in, and the cost of attendance was insane. At CCSU, I feel like I belong there, and the tuition price is unmatched. I love it here!
