These schools are similar to California State University-Northridge in key aspects like size, setting, and academics.
100% of students
I'd like the campus to have healthier food options
lack of healthy food options
I like the feel of a calm campus. There are many trees and plants in the wide-open spaces to sit in the shade under. The OASIS center provides many services to accommodate stress for students. The faculty cares a lot about their students and I feel supported by my professors. Everyone is really nice and welcoming. Come take a tour!
There are issues come registration time due to the impacted major of psychology, but I have been able to get into classes after being on the waitlist.
I️ like that CSUN has wide variety of activities and there is something that is always going on around campus. A farmer's market that happens weekly to multiple people offering help all around. CSUN is a very welcoming campus and it is easy to walk around just for the scenery. Some programs are very strong like their Liberal Studies programs and Kinesiology programs, while other departments are weaker such as their Math department. All schools have their own strengths and weaknesses, and it is truly up to the interest of the student in order to make their educational decision.
I️ don't like that many professors were not able to adapt to zoom classes after 2 years. I️ also do not like how bad professors who are hurting students are able to remain a professor simply because it's too hard to fire them.
I liked the professors at Cal State Northridge. Many were accessible and willing to assist non-traditional students.
I did not like the lack of career counseling available to students.
CSUN is one of the most diverse CSU campuses out there, you'll absolutely find a group where you can find community. Whether it be from the frats, sororities, or on-campus clubs and associations! CSUN is right in the middle of a great variety of things to do; local movie theaters and farmer's markets to some of the most well-known amusement parks only 30 minutes to 2 hours away!
Parking was not always the greatest.
I love how California State University- Northridge always includes their students and sends emails reporting any small to a big event that will happen on campus. CSUN makes you feel at home.
So far, there is nothing that I can complain about.
