Enrollment Grows Again!
Marking its 11th straight year of enrollment growth, CSU welcomed more than 1,950 first-year students to campus fall semester, as well as 30 new faculty members.
In addition, CSU ranks 43rd among the top 100 colleges and universities across the nation with the greatest increase in student applications, highlighting the University’s growing national reputation as a first-in-class urban research university.
Applications to CSU surged 67 percent between the 2011-12 and 2016-17 academic years, according to a USA Today story detailing the results of a study by the financial news website 24/7 Wall Street.
CSU saw the sixth greatest increase in applicants throughout the entire Midwest region, behind only three other public institutions and two private institutions. CSU was also ranked among the top three colleges and universities in Ohio, public or private, and was the only public university in Northeast Ohio in the top 100 rankings.
The University also was again named one of the top 300 higher education institutions nationally in the latest rankings by U.S. News & World Report.
