The staff at CSUF have been super helpful throughout COVID with keeping me on track to graduate.
Make sure you take the time to get to know the campus and get all the benefits that you can from campus.
The art department provides a plethora of material and great professors that will help you succeed in life.
The dorm food can be lacking and the financial aid may not be the best.
CSUF has amazing professors in the Public Health department. Also, the professors that I took for my GE's most of them were amazing and really showed that they cared about their students. I dormed my first year there but the dorm life was not all there and would say it was boring overall. Off-campus living is better as there are different places to live with different aesthetics. It is harder to make friends since it is such a commuter school. My favorite place on campus will always be the Fullerton arboretum such a relaxing place to be at when trying to get away from the busyness of the campus.
Parking can be a hassle during peak times. The food on campus is satisfactory in my opinion and wish they had less known eateries and fewer fast-food options.
As a business major, this school has a lot of opportunities to socialize, make connections, and help you prepare for life after school.
As a commuter, it will get lonely and you won't feel like part of the school.
The school is very diverse and welcoming. There is always something to do whether it’s a club, sports, or student-led activities. The campus is like a home away from home, and it has everything a student will need to thrive in their education and in life.
The textbooks, while useful, are expensive. I have found cheaper alternatives online before going to the bookstore.
I loved attending CSUF because the environment Is very friendly and social. Classes weren’t packed and were easier to form relationships with professors. In my major, many of the professors really cared for the subject they taught as well as the students which made these much more enjoyable.
What I did not like about CSUF is a generic issue shared between all colleges which is, having to take courses that were completely unrelated to my major. As well as courses I had already taken in high school. Another issue I did not like was the high cost of parking. If you plan to commute with your own vehicle this may be an issue for you.
