CSU is great! You have to put in the work. The degree will not be handed over to you. I saw many students failing, but they also didn't do the work. There are a few bad professors there, but every college has them. Do your work and show up. If you don't like putting in the work, then don't attend CSU. You're an adult now.

I really liked how hands on the teachers are helping you learn and grow if you're struggling, but I didn't like the limiting things to do on campus and under standard facilities. The campus food is below average and the community gym is not up to standard and should be renovated in order to encourage more students to take their health seriously.
