What I liked about CCSU is how the program and professors are with you step by step and you are able to have the best experience academically.

I have only been at CCSU for the first 2 semesters of my freshman year, but I can say so far that my personal experience has been enjoyable. The quality of the education is good, with professors teaching with a level of professionalism and class one would expect in a college-level setting. My professors are clear and concise in their expectations for the classroom, and my peers recognize this as such. CCSU is a fairly big school, but not too big. It takes maybe twelve minutes to walk from one end to the other, so getting from a to b isn't a hassle for most. CCSU, like most colleges, has tons of clubs and organizations, so if one is interested, they could find a club within their niche without looking too hard. CCSU frequently has many social events on campus, spanning from movie nights to financial literacy events. Dining at Central is also pretty good in my opinion. There is a decent array of food to choose from in the main dining hall - Memorial Hall - like burgers, salads, pizza, rice, club sandwiches, wraps, for example. Devil's Den, a collection of mini restaurants, also offers a good selection of meals to choose from. Overall, I would highly recommend CCSU to prospective students looking for a solid college with good, quality education.

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

if you plan on living on campus, be aware of which dorm you choose relative to the distance to your classes. CCSU has two descriptors for areas of residence halls: "Up the Hill" and "Down the Hill". They are exactly what they sound like. Up the Hill residence halls are further away from academic buildings while Down the Hill halls are much closer or even right next to academic buildings. You should decide whether or not the distance matters to you or not. https://www2.ccsu.edu/campusMap/ The gap between the Up the Hill classes is not that great, but being mindful of your dorm choice and what is and isn't important to you is key.

Central Connecticut State University has one of the best social work programs in the state of Connecticut. Between the quality and content of the required courses and beginning volunteer placements a sophomore year, students are able to build their skills early on and obtain great experiences.

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

Some professors in the social work program were a bit poor due to their teaching techniques. However, this did not limit the quality of my education, as I frequently utilized office hours or sent emails regarding any questions or inquiries.

There was always something to do or a way to get involved.

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

If you can afford not to purchase don’t. If necessary, make scans in the library and save yourself hundreds of dollars!

Orientation was super helpful and made me incredibly excited about moving in, the food is eh, it's really just school food but there is a wide variety of selections. Schedules are completely left up to you and the process to change courses is super easy. Overall, I love the school, for the price it's absolutely exceptional.

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

Use the pipeline. When you commit, make sure you explore the entire thing, check out all of the information, and stay updated.
