Question
CSU IS A HELL-HOLE ON EARTH.Quite BrightEnglish
CSU IS A HELL-HOLE ON EARTH. It is the worst school I can think of coz being an International student from a thrid world country, one would assume that I would love USA, thats true but the city of Cleveland and its poor university is such a spirit downer that by the end of my 3 years here, I wondered who I hurt or did worng to, to desreve such a fate. CSU was a horrific experience that has scared me so much so that I am extremely apprehensive about applying to another school in the states.

My advice is apply to big cities like NYC, Chicago and so on if u want a decent school experience.
The English faculty is self-absorbed and unhelpful, the creative writing teachers kill your creativity and profs disregard undergrads to the point of ignoring them when faced with another GRADUATE student. The student life is filled with broken spirited people who walk around like zombies and do not want to make any friends since they have lived in Cleveland their whole life and already have their high sch/ comm collg friends. Bottomline: If u r ambitious do not go to Cleveland State as its filled with underachievers who dream of staying on and on in a dead city just because it is the epitome of comfort zone for them. ***nOTE TO Indians: NORTH INDIANS from Bombay, Delhi and other metropoitan cities STAY AWAY pls.... South Indians please come to Cleveland state as it is filled with your brothers and sisters who have no indviduality ...and south indians will fit right in as they go hand in hand to the engineering dept Academics are average and hardly challenging + the school is very expensive !!!!!!!! I hope this school gets razed to the friggin ground....

Question
You are a number,Quite BrightEnglish
You are a number, and they try to spit you out with a cookie cutter degree. Check out degrees at other local colleges and universities and compare before you choose CSU.
