Friendliness enhances atmosphere
December 1, 2011
When asked “What is your favorite thing about CSU?” several students claimed that a friendly atmosphere was number one. According to students interviewed, CSU’s student body, professors and student organizations make the university a happening place.
“I love the fellow students. Everyone is incredibly friendly, and I have made a lot of new friends,” said Josh Fern, a Music Education major and freshman.
Apparently, CSU students like to engage in conversation with each other and simply hang out with one another. They like being submerged in a large, diverse student body (more than 17,000 students) and having a choice of several student organizations to get involved with.
According to the university’s website, Cleveland State has been selected as one of America’s best colleges to attend by “U.S. News & World Report.” Some of the things that have made CSU a top choice for education include: a $500 million campus makeover, more than 200 majors, minors and programs, downtown internships, low tuition rates and NCAA Division I sports.
At CSU, students will find acceptance and an open-minded attitude among students and professors coupled with a close-knit environment.
CSU has several world renowned professors teaching at the university. According to students, they like the way professors present material in a straight-forward manner and the self-interests they reflect while teaching.
“I like my professors. They seem really interested in what they’re teaching,” said Aziza Doleh, a junior Journalism/Promotional Communication major. “They try to keep it fun!”
Cleveland State has more than 200 student organizations and clubs. CSU has recently implemented an online student organization networking system called OrgSync. According to the university’s website, “OrgSync is a free service to students and will give users the ability to: quickly scan/find registered organizations by category or keyword, develop and update organization websites, archive an unlimited amount of documents, pictures and videos, maintain accurate member rosters and profile directories” and much more.
