Being originally from Warren - a small country town - I chose CSU for a number of reasons, one being it's rural location. The small class sizes would provide more interaction with the lecturers was another. CSU also came highly recommended to me by the careers advisors at my school as having a good reputation within the business field. I both my first and second years I completed about 100 hours of work placement, which gave me insight into the finance field (something that I am very passionate about). I also completed a 120 hour internship with a local credit union, which allowed me to gain the workplace skills that will be required when I graduate. I would highly recommend CSU. It has given me the opportunity to study the course I love, meet new friends and study in an environment that I feel comfortable in. Rebecca Murray Bachelor of Business
