CSU – home of engaged learning! At CSU, our favorite way to get to know you is in-person during a campus visit. We think you'll be impressed when you head to CSU's 85-acre campus in the heart of downtown Cleveland. See what a half billion dollar campus makeover looks like including the new Center for Innovation in Medical Professions, home to the CSU-NEOMED Partnership in Urban Health. Learn about our top-rated academic programs, renewable scholarships and Arts Campus at Playhouse Square. Take a student-led campus tour, including our amazing new dorm rooms with a view (and private bathrooms)

"CSU is truly an Engaged Learning experience, and you are able to take charge of your own education and involvement. I have learned and grown so much since coming to Cleveland State, and I am excited to become an alum and stay connected."
