I like that the staff is always there to provide educational as well as emotional support if needed. We also have a learning center where students can get tutored or helped on any subject to increase their chance of success.
I did not like some of the professors. You just have to find the professor that works for you because everyone learns differently. I recommend checking the rate of my professor before enrolling in a certain class.
Coming out of Covid, it was hard to adapt to the lifestyle of going to in-person school. CSUMB helped change that feeling by offering a smaller campus with a more petite student body making the classes feel smaller, allowing me to have personal relationships with all my teachers and get that one-on-one help when needed.
The dining commons didn't have many food options, and when they did have good food options, it didn't have much flavor and was often overcooked, or there was never enough food to supply for all the student body.
The faculty at CSUMB is great! Everyone at CSUMB is very open and welcoming to all backgrounds which makes it a great experience.
Food on campus is old and moldy unless you go to Starbucks or their other small restaurant.
CSUMB is a friendly and diverse community that works hard to provide students with opportunities for their future. Most professors and students are very kind and create a safe learning environment. I have only had the chance to spend about a year on campus due to Covid-19 but I can safely say that CSUMB is a diverse school filled with fun extracurricular activities and clubs. The university takes the pandemic very seriously and works diligently to create a safe environment for students to learn.
CSUMB is filled with clubs and partnerships that can give students the experience and resources they need to find a career after college. It is important to find these opportunities early and give yourself the experience you need for future career goals.
I like that there are many options to pay for classes, classes are more affordable. The staff is also friendly and very helpful.
Classes aren't easy, they are tougher than in a community college. Classes are more expensive.
The things that I like about CSUMB is that it is a very close community to connect with others. Since there isn't a lot of students here, we are able to connect with our community. I also like the biology program as well because there is a lot of scholarships that you can get for this major and many others.
What I didn't like about the CSUMB is definitely the food. I feel like they should improve on that to make sure that the students attending at CSUMB are eating healthy things and not get sick all the time at the DC.
