Central Connecticut State University Top Questions

What's the one thing you wish someone had told you about freshman year?


I wish i've known before i came is that you have to take pointless classes not affiliated with your major.


Before coming to this school, I wish I had known a lot more about algebra, statistics and the other difficult math courses that come with a four year college. In addition, I wish I had started researching the professors for the list of classes to complete my Bachelors degree.


I wish I had known some students before I came to this school. I commute and driving to school gives me a limited opportunity to meet students and some of the students who were living on campus had activites prior to starting the school year and they got to know their roommamtes and other freshmen. I kind of hated it and I am a shy type of person so I kind of sucked not knowing anyone at all before hand. however I did manage to meet a few people throughout my stay here and they have been very nice .

Before attending to this school, I never thought how small the campus was. I thought it would be bigger, it turned out wrong. The campus feel like a community. We have people from different countries, background, cultures. Each individual is unique in his or her ways from ones personality. This campus had given me the oppurunity to have closer connection and interactions with many students on campus. Everyone seems welcome. This campus have many talented students from playing sports, performing,creating and drawing, calculating numbers, conducting experiments, communication and etc. This university is dedicated to learning and success.


I have no regrets about my prior obligations upon coming to Central Connecticut State University because I was always determined to work hard.


I wish that I had started my Freshman year by living on campus instead of commuting, so I would have known that that is how people meet their friends and the people that they hang out with the most.


I wish I had known exactly what it was I wanted to major in and what classes were transferrable before I came to CCSU. I was attending a community college before and had no idea what I wanted to do, so now I need to take more classes here at a 4 year university were the cost is higher.


I wish I knew how bittersweet 8 A.M. classes were. While trying to get out of bed on Saturday morning can be a major drag, the class I have to get up for (Public Speaking) pulls you right out of the coma! I also wish I knew how important getting a good teacher was. This, as it turns out, is most times more important than what the actual class is---so ask around and get the best!


I wish I was better prepared for research papers. Research papers are much different than the papers you are taught to write in high school, where the focus is essay writing for the SATs. Research paper writing also was not a main focus of any of my classes at my community college. During my first semester at Central Connecticut State University, I have had to do more writing than I ever had to do before.


That the social life during the weekends is very dead


I wish i had known how much of a commuter school it was but everything else is perfectly fine. There are a lot of ways to get involved so the only problem is that not many people actually stay there.


I was very familiar with CCSU because I have many friends that come here. You can't possibly know everything about a school before attending, otherwise it would not be an adventure. Part of going to college is to experience new adventures and not knowing absolutely everything about the school is part of the adventure.


Nothing in particular - overall the experience has been fairly straightforward


I wish i knew how to better organize my time.


Before I came to this school, I wish I knew which degree program I wanted to be in. I made the mistake of going to a community college and transfering to go to CCSU. Then, after failing the first semester, I transfered back to the community college that I originally attended. Now I am back at CCSU and it just feels like I have been going to college forever and I am not getting anywhere.


I wish I had known that this school would not help me stay on track with my degree. My academic advisors only led me around in circles, didn't help to make sure I took necessary classes, and when I asked questions, the most prevalent answer was "I don't know". The Advisors did not do anything to help find any answers when they didn't have them either.


I wish I had been a bit better prepared as far as what would be expected of me regarding my major. I didn't even know until my third semester that I needed to have a minor! I'm a Secondary Education major, and I though English was my minor rather than a concentration!


That it was a dry campus, how hard it is to meet people as a freshman, how much homework there was going to b e


I wish i had known that there was nothing to do on the weekends.


All the different majors and what other things were offered to me


Not a lot of cubs. Not too academically intense.


I wish I had known the amazing people I was going to meet. I was obviously considering my options when going to college and if i knew i would meet some of my best life long friends here, i would have chosen it in an instant.
