Cleveland State University is a dynamic urban university at the heart of a growing city. The staff and faculty at CSU are passionate about the future of each student and provide them with endless opportunities to be engaged in the classroom as well as outside of the classroom around Cleveland.

I focus on high schools in southeast Cuyahoga County and central Ohio.

What is your favorite spot on the CSU campus and why?
My favorite spot on the CSU campus is the Student Center Plaza. It’s right in the heart of campus and always has lots of student activity. It’s a great gathering place and is perfect for students to relax or study in between classes.

If you had your own Magnus outfit, where would you wear it?
I would wear mine everyday around campus!

What advice do you have for students who are choosing a college?
Ask lots of questions and visit as many schools you're interested in as possible. Find somewhere that makes you feel "at home". It's not always the big name school that is the best fit for you. This is a big decision and ultimately you want to find a place where the people are passionate about helping you and you feel like you can grow.

What’s your favorite CSU fun fact?
Cleveland State University is located on the old "Millionaire's Row" on Euclid Avenue - with a couple of the original mansions serving as university buildings today!
