Keep these in mind when crafting your CSU Global blog. 


The purpose of the CSU Global blog is to provide information on topics that nontraditional students and alumni will benefit from. 


Whichever topic you settle on, it needs to fit into one of our four blog categories:

  • Career Relevant: These blogs should share general information you’ve learned with other students and alumni. Think about topics on upskilling, landing a job, being promoted, career-switching, entering the workforce after years off, etc.
  • Student Life: Topics will cover tips from your learning experiences as a student, such as study tips, how to get the most out of online education, resources you’ve found, how you landed scholarships, etc.  
  • Community: These stories should serve to inspire other students and alumni. Think about them as though you’re building camaraderie. Are you a single parent? A veteran or active duty service member? Military spouse? Tell us how you’ve turned challenges into triumphs and how pursuing a CSU Global education has played a role in your success. 
  • Work-Life Balance: Pursuing higher education while working and/or raising a family is often a balancing act. Topics can include productivity hacks or advice on how to stay focused, time management, including your family in your education, and so forth.

Word Count: 

Blog posts should be 400-800 words long.


Write your blog to current and prospective students and alumni.
