  • I wanted to go to CSB/SJU because my older brother attended CSB/SJU, and the stories he shared, the friendships he formed, and the stellar athletics made me want to commit on the spot. The campus location away from a big town and the campus setting surrounded by trees, lakes and wildlife sealed the deal.
  • I was able to choose CSB/SJU because my parents knew that the education I would receive and the connections I would make while at CSB/SJU would really pay off in the long run. The amount of financial aid I received through the school and the state helped immensely. Combine these with the many scholarships and grants available through the school and CSB/SJU become very affordable.
  • I'm glad I chose CSB/SJU because the friendships I have made at this school will last a lifetime. Everyone here is just so nice! The faculty and staff are always willing to help and give you the best education possible. If I could, I would do all four years over again in a heartbeat.
