CSU offers a great education in the classroom and you will be taught by some brilliant people. Our location in downtown Cleveland offers our students many unique and exciting opportunities. If you haven’t been to campus recently, please come visit. I think you may be pleasantly surprised. 

I focus on high schools in East Cuyahoga County as well as Northwest Ohio and Michigan.

Favorite place on campus: It’s hard to pick. There are so many great areas of campus and being right in downtown Cleveland adds a level of excitement that you don’t always see on a college campus.

Best advice for the college search: Don’t be afraid to ask for help. There are many people that are willing to give you guidance through the process, especially all of us in CSU’s admissions office. Don’t hesitate to reach out to us, we’re here to help you.

Best question to ask on a college tour: When I was looking at colleges, I always asked the student tour guide why they chose to come to that school. Students have so many different choices and it can be helpful to hear what set that school apart.

Favorite class in college: So many to choose from. I took an astronomy class taught by an astrophysicist from NASA, and that was definitely one of my favorites. Use your time in college as a time to explore and learn about things that interest you.

Favorite CSU Tradition: Magnus Fest is always a fun event. It’s a essentially a huge party thrown for our incoming students right before classes start. It’s a great way to be welcomed into our CSU community.

Favorite CSU fun fact: One of the few remaining mansions from Cleveland’s “Millionaire’s Row” is located on CSU’s campus. The house was built in 1910 and was home to iron-ore shipping magnate Samuel Mather.
