This begs the question...how do universities grow to become an OSU or UC in size and prestige? How does CSU become a more academically elite university? I would imagine the answer involves numerous factors and hopefully CSU is heading in the right direction. It would be amazing for CSU to one day be one of the premiere state universities in Ohio, and right in the middle of our downtown core! Is that even possible?

No, not for this thread it doesn't.  You're more than welcome to refer that conversation to this thread, though:

"They should work on a quality faculty and better academics first."
"bolstering the visibility of our already way-too-locally-prominent community college is what the region's taxpayers should be asked to directly support? "
"Studies show that given a sound roof and basic sanitation facilities, the school building itself has little or no effect on the quality of education."
"And if they want a tax increase for routine maineneance, they have mismanaged their facilities."


For the first time in my time on UrbanOhio i had to walk away from the computer.

First, A large metro region should have both a strong, modern, functional CC and a mix of state universities and private colleges. They can all co-exist, they won't hurt each other. Not everyone is going to go for a bachelor's right away, and not everyone SHOULD be at a four year. The trends are showing that more jobs will require at least an associates' or some training and these are decent paying jobs, and that people will be "thinking twice" before sending their kids off to college for 50K in debt. We're already seeing it in Pennsylvania with our state university enrollment (I am aware this isnt the ONLY reason).

Second, I pointed out earlier in the thread that there is STILL a frightening level of disdain for Community Colleges in this part of the country, which has an effect on retention and graduation rates, something that the south and west are killing us at. Why? They have modern facilities, modern programs that fit their areas, and fantastic matriculation agreements and partnerships with their local universities and colleges. We need to get on board with the rest of the country.

Much history in that building.  Trent Reznor worked in the studio there while working on Pretty Hate Machine.
I got some records from World War II

He was a rocker and I am too....Now Cleveland rocks....

I think it would be great to see Cleveland State's campus presence expand north.
