            Organizational Leadership - Great Content so far!

            I am really happy to have chosen CSU for my masters in Org. Leadership. So far, it has been a great experience, and although only at the beginning of my studies, I have learnt a lot and have been able to systemize my knowledge and experience. It is a lot of work, but definitely worth it.

            2008-2012, Bachelor's degree

            Proud to be a CSU Ram!

            I went to CSU for the theatre program, and it is a decision I do not regret! The campus, the people, they're all just amazing. I really was able to connect with the professors within my field, and other professors and employees on campus were helpful with my career path and any questions I had. I would recommend this university to anyone and everyone!
