    Central is just as good as any of the other state colleges. Get involved! go to events, join clubs, or even just randomly explore the campus! The people great and theres so much around campus. (Malls, restaurants, parks, museums, hartford) This place truly is great ...Continue reading

    It's a very good commuter school. The people are really friendly and every is here to work hard. Most of us work two jobs and go to school full time so we take this seriously, focus on our work, but also are glad to meet like-minded people. Underground Deli is the only place to eat and the people there are fun. It's really what you make of it. Get an on campus job. Of course if you're someone who just does class then home you won't like it but take the time to invest into it and you won't regret it! ...Continue reading

    CCSU is mostly a commuter school, so there aren't always a lot of people to hang around with at night or on weekends. If you commute good luck finding parking. Also if you're not 21 and live on campus good luck finding something to do. Nothing around in the area. Faculty are rude, unorganized and there is no student support. You have to jump through rings of fire to apply to the major, just for them to accept you regardless based on your courses and to tell you things you already know. Not happy with my choice and hoping to see some improvement. ...Continue reading

    its a good commuter school not much on campus life.... Food and campus is alright. There are plenty of clubs but most exist only on paper. For only 10K a year it's hard to expect much You occasionally get a really good one or two in your major. The campus is decent, but the other students can be rude and anti-social. Large commuter school. Campus food is very poor quality and sometimes inedible. Tuition keeps going up but quality stays the same. ...Continue reading

    I chose CCSU without knowing anything about it & I regret it. I am a transfer student to CCSU and I will have enough credits to have 2 bachelors degrees else where. Most professors don't try to teach they power point you to death with no real information. No good clubs on campus. ...Continue reading

    Overall a really great school especially for people who like smaller campuses. If your coming to college to party not the place. The food is not bad although it is kind of expensive without the meal plan. ( I don't eat there anymore) Be careful of the science department it is full of nut jobs and needs funding. ...Continue reading

    Living on campus is worthwhile, but the food is questionable. But! Once you're here, Central has a plethora of activities and opportunities. Many professors are serious scholars and really smart and engaging. I'm a History major, and am excited for all the professor I'll be working with these four years. Central is a perfect place to focus your academics without being distracted from too much campus life. You can raise your gpa here with the benefit of having a full time Ph. D faculty with no TA's and in a classroom of 30 or so people, so you'll get plenty of attention. Great place for transfer students. ...Continue reading

    Commuting within New Britain is not bad thanks to the Fast Track. Best Connecticut state school aside from Uconn. Strong business school. Great M.I.S program. There's some really great teachers, but some truly terrible ones! Learn to use Ratemyprofessor and be on the register button for classes as soon as you can and you'll do find. Cafeteria is nice, which all you can eat food, nothing fancy. Campus is fairly easy to navigate and find, parking issue is present however. ...Continue reading

    i am an art ed major so as far as the social rating and clubs. The more you buy into what's going on here the better. people who aren't involved won't enjoy any school they go to.

    Very disappointed with the social work major here. There is not much to do. Resident life kind of sucks. I personally leave every weekend along with 90% of the campus...

    If you're thinking about living on campus, don't. Any office you go to will not know how to help you and the system to sign up for classes is archaic. If you are a transfer student they will keep you for a minimum of 3 years. They don't think other state schools are up to their standards . ...Continue reading

    Horrible experience with the social work major. Clubs are hard to find, and usually terrible. the campus life sucks. all the events are mediocre at best. The food is disgusting. The classes are okay because of class size and the professors but the students have no life to them at all. do yourself a favor and stay clear of this school. In fact, soon I wouldn't even be able to afford going here. ...Continue reading

    This school is truly what you make it. The professors are amazing and clubs really help you get involved and meet people. However, the food wasn't that great and there aren't many options, especially if you are a vegetarianvegan. Also, it's mostly a commuter school and all those who do live on campus, they go home on the weekend. So there is no on-campus life. I'm a commuter so it is kind of difficult to make and maintain friends on campus but it is possible. The teachers vary from not the greatest to some of the best I've had. The food is not anything someone would voluntarily desire, but it's do-able with many surrounding food places. Internet is terrible. ...Continue reading

    Wish they had better professors and the classes were geared more towards things that would actually be beneficial to our future careers. There is not much school spirit. The dining hall chefs are great people, but the options aren't always the best. There are definitely slim choices for vegan and vegetarian students. The students don't take school seriously and don't show up half the time. The buildings are falling apart and the vibe on campus is awful. Skip it unless you just need the degree. ...Continue reading

    CCSU is a great school the class sizes are really small sometimes which makes a greater learning experience. The professors are (usually) pretty good, some can really change your life as well (corny, I know). I chose CCSU over UConn and it was one of the best decisions Ive made. the campus is beautiful, the weekends get boring bc everyone seems to go home but overall I'd say I enjoy my time on campus and am happy to be here The campus is beautiful (since its renovations last summer). The students are always respectable. CCSU is located in a very nice location in New Britain, close to Newington. Very safe location, not so busy streets surround the campus. The classes & professors are challenging, but motivate & promote student excellence in the classroom ...Continue reading

    As a biology major, I think central has a decent science department where students can participate in a wide range of projects with faculty who know what they are doing. You're getting what you pay for. College experience is what you make of it. Doable school, but don't have high expectations. Keep an open mind. If you keep up with school work you can graduate on time however you need to take the initiative or else you ll be at the mercy of ccsu GOOD LUCK ...Continue reading

    CCSU academically is a good school to go to if you are a person who stays on top of things. I really thought there would be more clubs (better clubs) most of them are academic and the other ones aren't interesting. The internet is always crapping out on me. overall, it's college, not too bad but can always be better. In the winter when it snows, the roof of the garages are covered in snow, making it that much HARDER to find a spot. Also, some buildings don't have any air conditioning. This was horrible! I could hardly concentrate because I was sweating so much. ...Continue reading

So give CCSU the good ole' college try! ...Continue reading

    CCSU is a good school, and cheap. It's wonderful for both commuters and residential students. There are plenty of clubs and it is easy to get involved. My only complaint is the food.

    CCSU is a great school offering a great education that's affordable! Unfortunately, if you're a STEM major, get ready to fight to get into your classes.

I'm calling this a pretty good deal for the price. ...Continue reading

    People don't give central enough credit, it definitely is a suitcase school on the weekends, but if you know the right people there's always a good time.

As a commuter, I wish there more activities during the day and not s many at night. ...Continue reading

CCSU tends to get a bad rep because almost anyone can get in an graduate with SOME degree, but there are many departments within CCSU that will weed out the weak ones (i.e. S.O.

    It's all pretty average. I've been here for 3 semesters and have no clue whats going on other than class. Internet is always down. The location is convenient and the school is overall respected by employers after you get your degree. ...Continue reading

    I was accepted to a couple more prestigious schools but chose CCSU for the cost and distance from home, and I love it here. Making friends in your dorm building is pretty easy since you will be living with them for the year. I just might be easily amused, but that's just me. So give CCSU the good ole' college try! ...Continue reading

    CCSU is a good school, and cheap. It's wonderful for both commuters and residential students. There are plenty of clubs and it is easy to get involved. My only complaint is the food. Sodexo makes pretty much everyone sick. They have gotten better with vegetarian and vegan options, though. ...Continue reading

    CCSU is a great school offering a great education that's affordable! Unfortunately, if you're a STEM major, get ready to fight to get into your classes. Food is trash, mem needs to un-&$#% itself with how poor the quality is. suites are nice, i'd suggest living in one especially as a freshman if you can afford it. I'm calling this a pretty good deal for the price. ...Continue reading

    People don't give central enough credit, it definitely is a suitcase school on the weekends, but if you know the right people there's always a good time. It has many clubs to join but I wish the clubs were more interactive with the students. The professors care as long as you put in the effort. As a commuter, I wish there more activities during the day and not s many at night. ...Continue reading

    I love going to school at Central. It's a simple university with lots of opportunities for anyone... The tuition is lower than the other state schools, but rising. Some professors are horrible though. Others are great. Like at any college. People came from Japan to go here. ...Continue reading

    I love CCSU Great school great professors. CCSU tends to get a bad rep because almost anyone can get in an graduate with SOME degree, but there are many departments within CCSU that will weed out the weak ones (i.e. S.O. Engineering, C.S. department, Math department). Stick with the STEM majors here and you should be good. ...Continue reading

    Cares a ton about his class and relates everything to the real world and the workplace. Possibly the best teacher I've taken since starting college. Difficult course but you leave class knowing you've learned something ...Continue reading
