Cleveland State is often seen as a last resort for students, whether it be for financial or academic reasons. CSU, however is now on the upswing. With a newly formed Honors program, and the ending of the open admission policy, CSU is beginning to take itself more seriously.
However, the students and staff at CSU need an attitude makeover. It seems like nobody is happy to be there. If you want an education for the sake of getting an education and need to stay in Cleveland, CSU is a good place to look into. Otherwise, I would suggest looking into other schools.
