If you are looking for an urban college with endless opportunities to find real world job experience, Cleve is definitely the college for you. We have hundreds of companies and organizations in Cleveland, ranging from Sherwin Williams to NASA! There is always something exciting going on in downtown Cleveland. With our large city events and major league sports, it is definitely an exciting time to be a student in downtown Cleveland!

I focus on high schools in near West Cuyahoga County as well as Central and Southwest Ohio.

Favorite place on campus: Definitely our Recreation Center. All of the equipment is changed out every 4-6 months, so you’re always using the nicest and newest machines. I love going to the free workout classes offered - they are so much fun!

Best advice for the college search: My one piece of advice for the college search is to visit as many campuses as you can. Visiting a college is truly the best way to determine if the school is the right fit for you.

Favorite class in college:  My favorite class in college was a History of Rock and Roll class. We spent each class listening to classic rock songs and learning about different artists and musicians. My professor was so passionate about the topic, which made the whole experience even better.

Best question to ask on a college tour: In my opinion, the most important question you should ask on a college visit should be, “what sets your university apart from the rest?” Every school has something unique that makes them different from other colleges and universities. At CSU, we love to talk about our unique location in the heart of downtown Cleveland.

Favorite CSU tradition: My favorite CSU tradition is Homecoming Week. Every year, we have fun events planned throughout the week including a Homecoming Week concert featuring a musical guest. This year, CSU is celebrating its 50th Anniversary during our Homecoming week!

Favorite CSU Fun fact: My favorite CSU fun fact is that Playhouse Square is technically a part of our campus! Theatre students have the opportunity to take classes in Cleveland’s theatre district, which is also the 2nd largest theatre district in the country (second only to NYC)!
