There is something afoot on Cleveland State University's campus. The downtown spirit adds to the excitement.

Cleveland State University (CSU) is a public institution that was founded in 1964. It has a total undergraduate enrollment of 12,443, and the setting is Urban. Located in downtown Cleveland, CSU offers more than 200 undergraduate and graduate programs. About one-third of CSU students are there to earn a graduate degree, and programs offered include those in the Monte Ahuja College of Business, the Cleveland-Marshall College of Law, the Washkewicz College of Engineering and the Maxine Goodman Levin College of Urban Affairs. At CSU, many students have full- or part-time jobs, so the university offers flexible academic planning and convenient class times.

Outside the classroom, students can get involved in more than 150 campus clubs, about a dozen fraternities and sororities and three different student newspapers. The university also offers numerous Cleveland State Vikings varsity sports teams, which compete in the NCAA Division I Horizon League. Off campus, CSU students can explore the city's museums, restaurants, professional sports teams and the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. 

Here are some takeaways from the information session I attended:With a budget $500 million dollar makeover of the downtown campus CSU has added to the renaissance of the city. The Ahuja School of Business attracts the most number of international undergraduates. Roughly 118 international UG students were admitted in Fall 2017. Several scholarship options in the college of business too. The college of engineering's new building will be ready by Spring 2018. CSU is launching a film school soon. The Mandel Honors College sounds appealing to high achieving students.
