Chicago State University Reviews
Student & Graduate Reviews (4)
I am a proud alum of the great Chicago State University where I received my BA degree as a student in the board of Governor's Program with a minor in Psychology. I will say that CSU has underwent several transitions over the years, however, the educators there are truly awesome teachers. CSU may get a bad wrap, particularly due to Administrative issues but if you take just one class there you will be certain that the actual instruction you receive is invaluable. Initially, I too was hesitant because of swirling rumors, but after speaking to a few students of CSU and a few advisors I knew that CSU would be the place for me to go to complete my undergrad degree. Also, it is in a great location (close to transit/ heart of the city) and it is very affordable. Coming from a private school, that ate up most of the loan monies as well as the grant monies I received, I was relieved to attend a school that utilized my grants primarily even leaving me enough money left to buy my books and supplies needed.
If you are looking to immerse yourself into an inspirational, influential, and innovative environment as undergraduate, Chicago State University is waiting for you. Located in Chicago's historical Pullman neighborhood, Chicago State University offers many choices to help you define yourself not only as a student, but as a citizen of society. Many of the instructors are world-traveled, well-renowned, career driven individuals willing and ready to impart their knowledge upon. It also doesn't hurt to be 20 mins away from Chicago's great skyline and Magnificent Mile of shopping. I am appreciative and proud to have received the experience I received from Chicago State. I was given the opportunity to open my thoughts, my heart, my options to a world beyond my understanding. Isn't that what you want?
Chicago State is has some of the best teachers in their education department. They are knowledgeable and current with their educational instruction. However, dealing with the administrative offices can be quite difficult. They often are slow to provide information and when they finally do the information is incorrect. I would recommend CSU but be prepared to face an up hill battle dealing with administration.
Administration unorganized but responsive. Teachers were wonderful! Location horrible and not central to much.
