Why CSU
  • Photo of CSU student Bennedita Smith
    Being an out-of-state pre-med student was overwhelming at first, but the family feel at CSU has made all the difference. I chose CSU because I believed I could succeed here academically and socially. And that’s exactly what’s happened!

    My favorite thing about CSU is being in the heart of Cleveland, where strong connections to many large corporations located throughout Northeast Ohio made it possible for me to receive a Parker Hannifin scholarship and internship.

    I was separating from active duty and looking for a university that caters to a diverse population. Cleveland State — with its emphasis on education and resources like the Veteran Student Success Program — quickly became my first choice.
