Off-Campus Housing: A pro for living off campus is that its less expensive that housing and a con would be that you don't get to interact with people as much because not everyone there by be from campus.

Drug Safety: Drug and alcohol scene is the same in every school, no matter where you go there will e drugs, alcohol, and peer pressure present. Our campus is very strict when it comes to drugs and alcohol.

4 College Sophomore

Academics: So far I've liked all my professors. Some professors do assign loads of work but it's college so it's expected. Registration process sucks because once you become a sophomore and junior you get the latest registration date.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: Housing is very expensive. The newer buildings are really nice but the older ones could use some work. The best thing about living in housing is that you're closer to campus and you get to interact with other people who live in the dorms as well.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: My school is unique in the sense that its a diverse campus and that it's a commuter school because you get to meet people from all over the place which expands your knowledge of other cultures, cities, and other countries.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Strictness: Our school is very strict when it comes to underage drinking and drug abuse, they do not tolerate it.

3 College Sophomore

Nightlife: Our school has a lot of on campus events that are fun. They provide foods, arts and crafts and sometimes different kinds of live music.

3 College Sophomore

Diversity: Our campus is very diverse. We have a big amount of international students which bring in most of the diversity to our campus.

3 College Sophomore

Greek Life: There is no Greek housing available. But the Greek life doesn't affect the social atmosphere on campus, it's like any other club in school.

2 College Sophomore

Weather: When it's hot, it's too hot. When it's cold, it's super windy.

4 College Sophomore

Diversity: Lots of different types of people. Very diverse backgrounds.

3 College Sophomore

Computers: Printing is a little expensive but free through ASG, I just wish there were more places to print for free or cheaper.

3 College Sophomore

Local Atmosphere: There are a lot of places you can go around to have food, have a drink, and relax but they all feel run down. Easier to just go to LA.

3 College Sophomore

Scholarships: All I had to do was fill out the fafsa. It wasn't a hassle and everything was automatic. Students with financial aid should be notified about school or major specific scholarships, sometimes due to busy schedule there is not enough time to research scholarships and you miss out on deadlines

College Sophomore

Campus Housing: i dont live on campus just visit and sleepover at a friends dorm every once in a while.

5 College Sophomore

Athletics: There is a lot of school spirit with any sport.

5 College Sophomore

Local Atmosphere: Northridge is a wonder place to live in and better place to go to school. The are many things to do day and night. Lots of restaurants and things to do a farmers market the mall and parks.

5 College Sophomore

Academics: i love being in the liberal studies department my advisers take care of me and any questions i have. I am going to be apart of the Itep program and its where i combine my general eds and my credentials in one so the work load will be more but to me it is worth it

5 College Sophomore

Diversity: I have meet people from all around the world and of all different sexual orientation.

5 College Sophomore

Scholarships: just getting the application in on time is the only thing that i needed to get my financial aid

5 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: When my family and i go out we are usual in Northridge so i take full advantage of my discount.

Overall ExperienceWhat's This?

View all previous student authors

On the whole, students most satisfied with their experience are very involved in the heart of the school. Many students choose to become RAs or ambassadors, work in the Matador Involvement Center or the Design Factory, join a sorority/fraternity, or get involved in intramurals or club sports. CSUN is a commuter school, meaning that most students live at home and commute to school. Because so many students are native to the area, they are not compelled to meet new people and participate in school activities. Years later, many of these commuter students say that the school lacks a social scene and they wish they had moved away from home to go to college. On the other hand, other CSUN students move from small, rural towns to go to a college in the city, and they absolutely love the campus. However, students are correct when saying that Northridge isn't a typical college town. Most of the partying takes place in Los Angeles. Many students also acknowledge that the school has a laid-back atmosphere about academics, which allows students to work and live a life beyond their computer screen. Students cite the school's ubiquitous diversity as a pinnacle example of how students can learn from their environment by hearing the voice and seeing the values of different cultures.
