Hear it from the graduates themselves.
CSU prepared me for this job by helping me find an internship while I was in school that provided my first experience in research, and gave me a lot of the tools necessary to work in this field. Through one of my professors, I was able to work for two summers at an oceanographic institute in Florida. The focus of my work was to explore the relationship between several environmental issues previously identified in dolphins and people who share this environment with the animals. This position allowed me to complete a research study from beginning to end. I also had the opportunity to present this study at two professional conferences.”

I highly recommend CSU to prospective students – especially if they are looking into the Construction Management program. Between the career fair, resume reviews and mock interviews, I was getting more offers than I knew what to do with.”

Looking back, CSU is the sole reason why I do what I do today. Through my classes, the mentors I had, and the organizations I was a part of during college, I was able to truly learn more about myself and my role in working toward enabling positive social change within my community. I would recommend CSU to anyone who wants to broaden their world views and have a better understanding of who they are in relation to the world.”

CSU offers a wide array of service-learning and community-engagement opportunities. Through these extra-curriculars, I learned the importance of giving back to the community, how to truly work with others, and what it means to be an engaged citizen. I also valued all of my supply chain classes. The professors were outstanding and the ‘real world’ experience I got from working with local companies and organizations was invaluable.
I’m very happy that I chose CSU. It truly is a place where the community and faculty care about each individual student, and invest time and energy into their success. I would recommend it to anyone.”

I couldn’t have asked for better preparation for this next step in my life. CSU is an amazing institution, brimming with individuals and opportunities to support each student in their next step. For me, my next step was law school. CSU prepared me through the many people and involvement activities that were available during my undergraduate career.
At this point, I’ve only made a few of those ‘life-changing decisions,’ that when you look back on them, you realize how much your choice genuinely affected your path. Choosing CSU was one of those decisions.”
