Chicago State Review

Chicago State University is a small institution but due to the small size of the campus I have the privilege of knowing most if not all of my professors on a personal level. This helps me want to become a better student as well as work harder in other aspects. Chicago State is the perfect school to receive quality education from teachers who want to help and will do everything in their power to see you succeed.
