Overall

The students and teachers I have encountered have been helpful in dealing with administration problems. Tips for prospective students would be when administration is holding you back, see your advisor. A great advisor will help you move past the administration.

Academics

I take a full 18 credit course load every semester. It is not very difficult to do. The classes I have been in have less than 20 students. The professors have always been helpful in understanding the subject at hand.

College Life

It's in Connecticut, so to an outsider, it may seem like everyone hates you. However, once you become involved with a group, you'll realize that is just the normal attitude of people from Connecticut.

Overall

To get around campus you should get to know people once you know people your social life will be great. The school is great i just wish they had more student activities to do at night, sometimes it boring around here.

Academics

My classes are great but I struggle with Biology alot and it gets me upset sometimes. Over all my classes are not too bad, as long as you go to classes and pay attention you will be fine. The professors are great too, can't complain about any professors I've had

College Life

There is not a lot to do on the weekends because, this is a commuter school. The clubs here are great especially the United Caribbean Club. The athletic teams are decent, I like going to the games. I like supporting my fellow Blue Devils

Overall

I had a very positive experience. I loved the fact that the entire campus existed without streets dividing it, so you were free to travel to all your classes in an auto-free walk zone. Overall, I had good teachers in my subjects, though that was largely thanks to ratemyprofessors.com (I could have easily ended up with sub-par teachers I've heard horror stories about). Most of my time however, was spend in the theatre building, and it was there that I made some of my best work, learned my most important lessons, and made friends and connections that will never leave me.

Academics

Classes at CCSU are generally small. 35 students or less in an average class. In the theatre department, most of my classes were 20 or fewer, and that allowed for great one-on-one instruction. Speaking for the theatre program alone, I rate the program very high for the self-starter student. A needier student would fare better at a larger institution where your choices are made for you and your methods of working are limited to a single technique. CCSU's program lays out a wide variety of theatre techniques, leaving you to embody the methods that work best for you.

College Life

Great campus life during the week, from early morning to late-night, the campus is buzzing Monday-Thursday. Everyone would leave campus on the weekends though, and that was always a bit disappointing. If you enjoy a little bit of serenity on the weekend, then this would be a great thing, but I always much more preferred the lively atmosphere. Thursday nights are famous for parties, big campus events in the residence halls and in the student center. Find your niche and you'll enjoy the campus life.
