Don't waste your money.Quite BrightEducation
Don't waste your money. CSU has grown alot since its early days, but hasn't improved in quality at all. Be honest- how many really sharp college grads do you know have graduated from CSU? NONE!

Their Schwob Music School is great, and Drama is great. But are those really marketable degrees? When you really be honest with yourself, you realize there's nothing CSU can really offer you. The new apartment-style dorms are kind of cool, but so what? Mot enough computer labs, science lab equipment, class offerings, etc. Coming from Newnan, it was close and looked nice on a tour. This has been a waste of a year and alot of my parent's money. I am off to Auburn this fall.

To be honest, just through the application process,Quite BrightEnglish
To be honest, just through the application process, I'm starting to reconsider going to this shit hole. The financial aid office is full of unhelpful jerks that seem more concerned with getting you the hell out of their office then actually getting you the help you need. IF you are a typical student, I doubt it'd be to hard for you, but between applying for an independancy appeal, having to switch my residency (because for some reason they kept trying to make me an out-of-state student), and just getting enrolled, this have become a half a year affair! They don't tell you what you need all at once. They tell you "Oh, you need to get this one thing before we can get you enrolled." you get this one thing, suddenly it's something else. One thing after another instead of just telling me up front what I needed. I had to post-pone when I start school with them because of this crap! If you are considering CSU, don't. Try finding somewhere else, because honestly, they could give a shit less about you as a customer, and care more about having to work less. If I'm going to spend serious money on getting into school, money I'm going to be paying back for a good majority of my life, I'm going to spend it somewhere that doesn't give me such a hard time. I've already started looking to go elsewhere and I definitely advise you do the same.

Clearly, CSU is not Georgia Tech or Auburn.Quite BrightBiology
Clearly, CSU is not Georgia Tech or Auburn. However, for a tier-3 school it really is a decent education for your money. If you are an above-average student and can join the Honors program, do so. That makes a huge difference in the level of education you'll receive. You will have access to smaller classes with more challenging coursework. Also, what you make of your degree matters. I'm working toward a BS in Biology with a minor in either Chemistry or Mathematics. There's nothing easy about it, regardless of what school you attend. I agree this is easier than I expected it to be, but at the same time you get out of it what you're willing to put in. Ask the people who are complaining what their major is and GPA is, then we'll talk about the ease of getting through CSU.
