3 College Freshman

Guys & Girls: The guys and girls on campus are different races and different cultures. I constantly hear different languages being spoken. Overall many guys seem sporty and the girls have great style.

3 College Sophomore

Guys & Girls: Guys and girls are average.

1 Recent Alumnus

Guys & Girls: I think that CSUN might have the most "confused" group of students all over campus, there is a lot of aimless wandering going around the campus without much of anything getting done.

College Freshman

Guys & Girls: I don't think you can rate relationships between people, and I think rating the looks of the students is incredibly degrading.

5 College Sophomore

Guys & Girls: Everyone is diverse and very accepting of one another/

Student Author OverviewWhat's This?

While the CSUN student population is very eclectic and bursting with variety, the social life, on the other hand, isn't as vast. However, socializing on campus is what you make of it. If you are involved in activities, like Greek life or other clubs, you will have a better time of meeting friends, but if you just stay at home and keep to yourself, well, then it will be more difficult. If you get out there, there are opportunities to find your own niche.

In terms of the people who are out there, there isn't a typical CSUN student because everyone comes from different parts of the country and the world. However, most students are friendly and welcoming to each other. You will find "Hollywood" types who put a lot of time into how they look, but you will also find people who couldn't care less. Because it's a commuter campus, it's generally not as cliquey as other schools can be, which is good. Population-wise, some students remark that there are a lot of Middle Eastern students on campus, in addition to Latinos. Also, there is a strong homosexual population. However, the campus is so diverse, that there is a match out there for everyone, gay, straight, or whatever. There just won't necessarily be a lot of relationships, though, as most students are mostly looking just to hook up.

Social Scene
The social scene is pretty much nonexistent unless you are part of a club, organization, fraternity, sorority, or work on campus. There are pockets of social groups, but the school as a whole isn't connected. Typically, friendships through people you meet in class don't last very long, and the best way to get to know people is to get involved.
Hookups or Relationships?
By far, the best way to experience a random hookup is to be in a sorority or fraternity. Going to a fraternity house party is also a great way to meet to hook up, if it doesn't get shut down by the cops first. You may randomly hook up if you live in the dorms, but it's not as likely. Many people at CSUN are in long-term relationships, but others enjoy the single life. You'll find a little bit of everything.
Dress Code
Some people are laid-back and show up in their PJs. But other students go all out and wear designer labels. Some people think of school as a fashion show, but there are other students who just don't care. You'll find that a lot of people wear their CSUN gear, too.
