This is good news, indeed. Clayton State has a gorgeous campus and plenty of room to expand over time and they have Spivey Hall. I know their technology degree program has been strong for a while to the region. Another thing to note is that CSU has had a similar evening program non-credit classes that Emory has had for a long time for working adults or anyone else interested. Not bad for a 2 year community college that started out in 1969.

Thank god USG is investing in them. We need to train everyone in STEM not just the best and brightest that wind up at UGA and Georgia Tech.

Apart from HBCUs, Clayton State has the absolutely worst prepared students who are most vulnerable.

Wait, what are you talking about. This makes absolutely no sense at all. CSU is a liberal arts state college, it is not a STEM school, it does not advertise itself as one either. Clayton State was just named the best value college in the state of Georgia and 9th overall in the state by James Magazine. Also CSU has a higher Return on Investment than GSU, KSU, and UGA. Not knocking these schools but CSU is doing just as well as the other schools in the state.

I am a current senior at CSU after attending GSU and can say that I am enjoying my experience here a lot more than I did at GSU. Both are wonderful schools but CSU is giving me an experience I really will remember.

Previous poster, I already gave you a link for evidence.

Clayton State University is a University not a liberal arts school.

James Magazine? Never heard of it.

There's technically none such thing as a STEM school. A university is comprehensive meaning one is able to partake in learning in a variety of fields. Further, we need STEM support.

Interesting about the ROI, but you should read up on how those rankings were calculated.
