          • Testimony
            1982-1986, Bachelor of Arts

            My oldest son just finished his freshman year at CSU. I graduated from CSU nearly 30 years ago. The University has done such an amazing job of staying contemporary and relevant to their students. I was so impressed with his orientation and welcome experience and the superior communication I've received from CSU and a parent. Overall his first year was so superior, I want to do it all over again!

          • Testimony
            2005-2009, Bachelor of Science

            CSU has a great set of programs that cater to anyone. The flexibility to change majors midway along with knowledgeable advisors made it easy to complete a double major while studying abroad twice. Thanks CSU!
