The beauty of these EMT stories is that they are simply the stories of ordinary people who chose to follow an extraordinary calling.

Traci and Kalyn are proof that while you may not be in a physical classroom surrounded by students, your time at CSU can still produce much more than a valuable degree. It can bring you valuable friendships, as well.
Making Friends the Knight Way. Two years ago, Kalyn Chism, a recent CSU graduate with a degree in Occupational Safety and Health (OSH), posted a status in Schools App for Facebook (an online community of CSU students and graduates that promote relationship-building and networking).

CSU professor, Melissa Black, MS CSP CIH, recently authored an article for EHS Today. Read the full story here! ‪#‎CSUedu‬
After transportation-related deaths, falls are the No. 1 cause of death on the job, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS). It should be no surprise that CFR 1926.501 Fall Protection is also the standard most cited by OSHA.

CSU is exceptionally the best college; I just graduated this week with an Associate of Science, in Health Information Science, however l'm almost too elated to even write how satisfied I am with the college, staff, organizational structure, and etc. In it's entirety. I transferred 27 credits from another college, and 1 year, and 14 days later, I've completed 33 credit hours and have my degree, and I'm so impressed so much so that I'm going to continue on for my BS degree- You Rock CSU! 👏💕🎓💯

If I could give this school 10 stars, I would! Every part of my experience with this college has been nothing short of exceptional. From the way classes are set up to the people working at the school, this college excels. The people who I speak with in every office (advisement, registration, financial aid, student services, etc) are always so incredibly friendly and understanding. They are quick to reply and will do anything they can to help you. They do not pass you off to another department but instead go seek the answer for themselves to report back to you instead of passing you around. They are there if you have issues with a professor or a deadline and will do anything to fight for you and your position. The classes are informative and include real life teachings. With the two options of enrollment (lifepace or term), you can always find a class to fit your life and schedule. The classes are very affordable as well. I have never had such amazing experiences with a school and would recommend this to anyone looking to further their education.

I have been attending CSU part-time for a few years now and will complete my B.S. in OS&H by the end of the year. As someone who works full-time and has a family which I am dedicated to spending time with, my experience at CSU has been overwhelmingly positive. The support staff is beyond amazing. They are always so pleasant to speak with and have such lovely southern accents. Most of the professors are very helpful, and amazingly kind. That is not to say they are overly lenient, but they understand that sometimes life happens and you may have a late assignment occasionally. Again, my personal experience at CSU has been overwhelmingly positive. So allow me to conclude by saying that at this point I am making plans to continue on and get my back my M.S in OS&H.

I chose CSU for numerous reasons. I am in the military and required class flexibility, CSU gave me flexibility with a choice to condense the semester or take the full nine weeks. As a Master's student, CSU tuition was more than reasonable and included the text books. As with all schools, you get out what you put into it. It isn't regionally accredited, but for the safety professional, the Board of Certified Safety Professionals recognizes the institution and a degree allows for ASP and CSP certification. I'm proud of my academic accomplishments at CSU and I recommend this school to those that choose the safety profession.

This is by far the best University in the US. I surveyed this University among 457 other online Universities and this is ranked number 1 by it's professional leadership. The Admission staff made me feel welcome and took time to embrace my needs. I have only two classes left. 17 weeks. I must include the vacation week. Each class is 8 weeks of rigorous assignments and lessons. They are consistent in their structure so students can't fail if they put forth the effort and have a good worth ethic. This school will rate high on US News and Colleges for its successful strategies in helping law enforcement, Veterans, and simple people like me.

Just finished my B.S in Healthcare Administration in Nov 2015.. My degree has helped me land a position as Office Manager with a home health agency. I am now working on my MBA with CSU and have two years until completion. Great school, and the reviews I receive from my instructors are prompt and helpful.

SO after a few years of working towards my bachelor degree in fire science, I had to take a year off due to financial and personal reasons. I go to start again and finish my degree and told that the program is no longer offered. Ok no big deal, I have to re apply under the fire service administration program. Well after sending in my re evaluation I am told that instead of my previous 24 credit hours I needed to graduate before in the fire science degree program, I will now need almost 33 credit hours. After talking to my academic adviser, who acted like she was doing me a favor (which she wasnt) it got knocked down to 27. But none of my fire investigator and fire engineer classes count. So in the end do not go to this money hungry terrible school. Do your self a favor and stay far away from this place, and the classes are not that good either. The bottom line: I should have been given the credit I deserve and not screwed over into having to pay for more classes.

A recent graduate with and BS in Environmental Management. CSU has been a great institution for higher learning. The instructors are extremely helpful and fair with the students. Tuition is competitive and having the books included has been a big help. The grading a fair and the instructors will push you to do your very best. I am extremely satisfied and would recommend this school.
