Central Connecticut State University Reviews
Student & Graduate Reviews (12)
I feel that the dean at CCSU need to be on the professors a lot more. There were many classes at CCSU that were very hard and challenging just because of who was teaching it. It was either the class is unbelievable hard and the professor is giving students tens on tests or the very same class the next semester the professor will hold open book and open note tests. It made me frustrated that there was no middle ground. If I did find myself in one of the easier classes it made then next semester even tougher because I wasn't exposed to all of the material I should have been. I understand it is college and it is up to the student to learn, but any professor that simply shows up and writes on a white board and doesn't engage with his or her student should not be allowed to teach. They get worked too hard to get to that point in their lives to not teach the students.
CCSU is a great place to learn and further your education. The faculty and staff are very knowledgeable, helpful and accommodating. I returned to CCSU after 15 years to finish my bachelor's degree. It took 2 advisement meetings to get everything figured out and a plan for my future. Once enrolled into school everything they said they would do was done and I graduated a year later. I am know returning for a masters and have had questions the faculty has been quick to respond to questions and have once again laid out a great roadmap to my future. The exceptional service of the faculty impressed my wife she is now enrolling in a graduate degree as well!
An excellent institution with a strong history of education, Central Connecticut State University is a great choice for students across the globe, especially if they're education majors. As an alumnus of their Biology program I can say without a shadow of a doubt that my time there gave me exactly what I needed to start my career with the United States Forest Service.
Central Connecticut State University has a very positive and diverse learning environment. As an RA on campus, I got to have a more in-depth experience of their campus life which is very accepting. I will be graduating Central with two Bachelor's degrees which were supplemented through the Honors Program. The Honors Program at Central can be very rigorous at times but prepares you well for post-graduate research since you are required to publish a thesis as a junior.
The only reason I decided to attend Central Connecticut State University was to save money on tuition. I had heard good things about the school's education program, and since I wanted to be a teacher, it just made sense for me to go there. My general education classes were hard to get through. I dealt with incompetent professors, unhelpful advisors, and suffered through irrelevant classes. I was less than impressed with the dining options on campus for commuters. Things improved once I actually got into the education program. My professors were amazing and experienced. I was able to work in an elementary school every semester, which was a great experience. Although I had a rough start, I am happy with the education that I received at CCSU. I was hired immediately after student teaching as a paraprofessional, and I think the education I got at Central played a big part in that. I would recommend CCSU to anyone pursuing a degree in education.
I was hired 2 years before I graduated for the states largest construction company! Says it all about the school, they train you for a career!
It is a solid school. I had a really great time there. My original plan was to transfer to UConn after a year, but liked it so much I stayed. I would definitely recommend students to get involved in clubs and student government. They have a lot of options.
Excellent school. Campus was wonderful. Many great clubs and activities. Would recommend to anyone.
I received a great business management education and it was relatively inexpensive.
Love my school. Once you get involved in student life and meet more professors, a lot of opportunities can open up for you. The psychological science department is amazing. Our research methods class is intense, but will help you really learn the intricacies of research. Our professors are top tier and truly focus on student learning. CCSU's professor are largely hired due to their ability to teach, unlike many schools that just hire professors who have published a lot of articles. Though both are important, students need great teachers who they can learn from, that is something you can get at CCSU.
