Charleston Southern University Top Questions

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


I wish I would have known that being myself is perfectly okay. People come into college every year thinking they can change who they are and start a completely different life. Believe me, I tried. Charleston Southern is a Baptist College, and that means almost everyone here is extremeley religious. Unfortunately, I was confused about religion at first and I thought if I pretended to be into it I would fit in. Truth is, everyone is here to help. You will never go confused on this campus, and its okay to be confused. But be yourself.


I wish I knew how hard living the dorms and adjusting to others would have been. I also wish i knew how the cafeteria food tasted.


There is nothing I regret about choosing Charleston Southern, except that it is far from my hometown.


Before I came to Charleston Southern University I wish I would've known some better study habits. When i first started I didn't do to good at studing enough each night to do good in certain classes. I also wish I would've known how much professors expect out of each student.


I wish I knew about more options for getting financial aid before I got to Charleston Southern University. I'm so excited about getting an education! However, when you know you have a balance to pay and no job or car and you are an out of state student with parents who are struggling to pay the bills due to being hit with a job loss, it makes it stressful because you feel like a burden on them while you are off trying to make a better future. But it will be for he greater good in the future.


Do not take out loans unless you absolutely have to.


that there was no social life at csu unless you party off campus....i dont do that


I came to the school not knowing what my major was, so I wish I had known my major.


I wish I would have known about the campus life itself. It is dead on campus during the weekends. I also would have liked to know how hard it is to keep a 3.0 average. Also I would have liked to know that I would eventually tear my ACL and not be able to play basketball for a year.


That commuters are rarely informed of anything. That I would have to find out everything for myself.
