The CSSA program draws students from a wide range of academic and professional backgrounds, each bringing their own unique experiences to OSU and the classroom. Through CSSA's cohort model, our students are able to work, learn, and socialize as a cohesive unit. Graduates leave CSSA with a network of student affairs collegues, as well as lasting friendships from their cohort experience.
