WHAT I LIKED

Cleveland State is full of many people who know each other. There is no sense of anonymity, and while it may be appealing for some, it is very overwhelming to others.

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

The advisors seem to be following a strict plan instead of listening to what you'd like and need.

WHAT I LIKED

Cleveland State was so inclusive of everyone. It’s a very relaxing place with plenty of spots to get work done. Basically, all my professors so far have been amazing and really want all of you guys to pass. it’s honestly not that expensive compared to other universities. I would definitely recommend this place! Always take notes ask questions and have a friend you make there really makes a difference someone who can help you study, work together, etc.

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

Just be wary of those select few professors. Some of them just don’t want to do anything or care about your education. Every school has that one professor. Just take notes always always ALWAYS show up to class. I cannot stress enough even if the professor is really lax about attendance I urge you to go. You will fall behind and not know what to do.

WHAT I LIKED

Most departments are helpful, the dining halls have decent hours and decent prices, the food is pretty decent there, and I can study there for hours which is very helpful. I enjoy being on campus and the campus life is pretty active despite being a commuter school. I wish the campus was more accessible, though.

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

Accessibility in the buildings is not great. I wish there was better elevator and ramp access. The buildings are also, particularly maze lines on the engineering end of campus.
