"The professors are qualified and accessible. The use of technology is average. The community is not great for college life, but it is decent. The quality is high."

"The only con to CSU's graduate program is that there is a lack of variation of classes throughout the year. The pros include: class selection, professionalism of staff, willingness to help, registration procedure to include financial aid applications, etc."

"I felt the graduate program at Columbus State University was highly proficient and really helped me in regards to research. I thought the professors really cared about what subject I was interested in and they took time out of their busy day to help me out with whatever concerns and work I had. In regards to the social life on campus was quite a struggle for me. I think the fact I was an older student had something to do with it. Perhaps not comprending the generation contributed to my struggles. However, I recently did a study abroad program where I hung out with students who were the same age and I found their company to be quite comforting and welcoming. Perhaps the fact I've traveled around so much was the reason why it was quite a struggle for me to adapt to campus life at CSU. My finaid advisor was very helpful and she was instrumental in making sure my funds were available and on time throughout the duration of my graduate studies. The workload was somewhat sufficient. I think the professors were great in allowing their students to research a subject which they found interesting to them. The group projects were insightful and very helpful. In regards to career support, unfortunately that was a bit non existent. The professors or the department didn't really help us in regards to seeking an advancement or for first time employees. The university life was very affordable. Overall, I found the graduate experience to be highly favorable and I look forward to completing this program next year."

"I believe Columbus State is a great fit because it is affordable yet still gives you a chance to network and learn inside the classroom. The night classes are very convenient and are the only way that I can achieve my MBA. The administration is very easy to talk to. The only problems I had were that the website was not very user friendly and I felt at times that they were not very familiar with me or my questions. I work at a University and know that our admission counselors seek to make everyone feel like family. Although I did not get this feeling, my questions were answered and I am able to get my MBA!"

"I feel that Columbus State University offer a great, comprehensive School Counseling program. The classes are all relevant and we have great internship/supervision opportunities. However, the program lacks in providing upcoming graduates information on certification, testing, and job searching."

"Professors are/were active workers in the field and class that they teach. The classroom sizes aren't too large."
