Cleveland State is great if you are eitherAverageMusic - Performance
Cleveland State is great if you are either Black or an engineering student. I'm sorry to put it so blunt, but it's true. The music department sets it up so it is impossible to graduate in four years and then takes away your scholarship after the four years. Professors who barely speak English look to office secretaries to tell them how to handle a student requesting an incomplete rather than handling it themselves. The department itself is overrun with drama, much of it finding its source in the faculty and staff. They have many times allowed students to maintain seething blogs online blatantly attacking fellow students and teachers who have subsequently left the school. It's a venemous place to receive an education, if you want to call it that. As for the university itself, it's a commuter school who is trying its best to pretend otherwise. The school will do everything in its power to make commuters know that they are unwelcome. They are constantly tearing down garages and replacing them with student housing and charge a ridiculous amount of money just to have PERMISSION to park, not necessarily to park, because all of the spots are taken up before a majority of the classes begin for the day.

Question
If you are a young college student lookingBrightMath
If you are a young college student looking for the college experience and to be inspired, this is not the school for you. CSU is a commuter school, and although they are trying to make it more of a community, they are failing. I would definitely not recomend Cleveland State to any future students. It is difficult to get involved because most organizational meetings are during the day, their SI and help sessions for students are in the middle of the day also. It is hard to do well in school when there are no incentives. The communication between the event groups and the students are unclear. CSU is just not what a young students college experience should be.
