Degree: Law & Criminal Justice
Graduation Year: 2016

I attended this university because I had no other options. I could not afford to move away from home and WCSU was affordable. I was pleasantly surprised by the quality of education I received there. I felt like the professors cared about my success in their classes and that the material was relevant to my future educational and career aspirations. The campus is beautiful and I never had any problems with administration or financial aid offices; everyone was always incredibly helpful. I think the individualized attention is a benefit of a small school. On the flip side, it is hard to feel connected to campus life as a commuter student. I got involved in the Greek scene to meet new people. While the Greek community is small at WCSU, it is friendly (no hazing!) and fun. The school has frequent activities in the quad and companies come to give away goodies between classes. Overall a good experience that won't put you into debt for the rest of your life.

Western Connecticut State University (WCSU) is an affordable state school in my area. I chose WCSU because it was close enough to commute while I lived with my parents to save some money and it offered a program in which I was interested in. In 2014, WCSU opened a beautiful visual and performing arts center with state of the art classrooms and equipment available for student use. Unfortunately, I was already a senior by that point and didn't have much time to take advantage of what the new building had to offer. If anyone is considering WCSU to pursue their education, I would tell that they get out of their school what they put into it. Internship and career opportunities are EARNED, not given. Going to WCSU will give you an adequate, affordable education which will give you the opportunity to pursue your career in your field of choice. I personally went into WCSU knowing I always loved art and working with children. I got my bachelors degree and am now pursuing my master's degree in early childhood education, I couldn't have afforded my master's degree if I didn't save so much money at WCSU.

Degree: Biology
Graduation Year: 2010

Western CT State University is a great value school. Its a state university, so its affordable. However, the quality of the education I received is way above what people expect from a state school. All the classes are small - 38 students max. Most of my classes had less than 20 people. You really get to know your professors and connect with them. And its clear the professors care about you and your education. Also great facilities, many new buildings. Great student life - theres always events and such happening.
