Meet the Admissions Staff

Lee Furbeck
Director, Undergraduate Admissions and Student Transition

Welcome to Cleveland State University! I am pleased that you are considering CSU in your college search. In the Admissions Office, we want to support your exploration of all that CSU has to offer. We've assigned an admissions counselor to your school or area so that you have a direct contact who can answer all of your questions and assist you with the application process. Why not reach out and introduce yourself if you haven't already?

It's a great time to be a CSU student. Our students benefit from CSU's prime location in the heart of the city, thousands of internships and co-ops, robust student organizations and athletics, and nationally-recognized academics and support services. I love calling CSU "home," and I hope you will too!

Students can experience everything a big school has to offer at CSU, with the benefits of a smaller school. Individualized approach, smaller classrooms, and the resources to succeed in and outside of the classroom. Our location allows for great internship, co-op and job opportunities, as well as access to exciting events and venues that downtown Cleveland has to offer!
