4 College Junior

Athletics: It is great! Intramural sports include volleyball, soccer, and tennis and are formed mainly from students living on campus. The gym is tuition paid so all students are welcome to use the state of the art gym! Equipment is always renewed every year or so. There is an obstacle course available to students, a sauna, a massage table, a rock wall and much more!

5 College Junior

Diversity: This campus is one of the most diverse, not only in the region but also in the nation

4 College Junior

Academics: Professors and students along with staff are all amiable! Its has to be the easiest accessible processes in any system in general manner. Students and staff are all knowledgeable in pretty much anything weather its classes or events, financial aid, or even registration!

3 College Junior

Majors: I am glad with my program, the reason i chose "okay" is because of hardships i have faced within my time at the university, but my college experience itself is grand.

College Junior

Majors: I have not yet been part of an internship. I do plan on having an internship as soon as the opportunity comes along. My only concern would be an assessment, because my resume speaks for itself. I have been more than involved in my community, volunteer jobs, and in organizations to spare. Its just a matter of time before someone recognizes my effort.

4 College Sophomore

Transportation: Even though our school doesn't provide campus shuttles and that taxis don't really come around the city very much and are pretty expensive, the public transportation is really reliable. Its free for students and they're every where on the weekdays.

4 College Sophomore

Computers: There is always a computer available for someone. Even if you don't want to be in a computer lab, you can rent computers from the library and use it until your time up! Essentially, there is always computers available but you might want your own computer for convenience.

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: The off-campus housing is nothing special. Everything is pretty average. You're living on your own and living on your own isn't that exciting.

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: Off-campus dining is mainly just a couple of local restaurants and fast food chains. The places aren't great but it's also not so bad so I cant really complain.

4 College Sophomore

Diversity: There is a lot of diversity in my school. CSUSB is mixed with all types of ethnicity's, cultures, and beliefs.

3 College Sophomore

Athletics: I feel like the athletics at this school is really important. The athletics is important in a way that its important for the everyday student. Our school isn't really that crazy for its sports.

4 College Sophomore

Scholarships: It's a little difficult to obtain all the information needed for financial aid, but once I get it, the process becomes pretty smooth.

3 College Sophomore

Nightlife: The only Nightlife experience I participated in was this once a year bash the school holds for everyone called "Coyotefest". Coyotefest was fun but other than that, there really isnt much nightlife at the school or i'm just not looking hard enough.

3 College Sophomore

Local Atmosphere: The local atmosphere is okay outside of CSUSB. There's mainly fast food restaurants and a couple of supermarkets. Attractions, activities, and cultural events really don't occur outside of the school but when I walk around in the city, I feel secured in doing so.

5 College Sophomore

Drug Safety: From the two years I have attended at CSUSB, I have not seen drug or alcohol usage. I also haven't seen peer pressure from other students to other students. Maybe its due to the type of friends I've acquired over the last couple of years but i strongly believe its due to the policy enforcement CSUSB has.

4 College Senior

Off-Campus Dining: A lot of variety while on the go, many fast food restaurants and some dining restaurants.

3 College Freshman

Weather: The wind will get under your skin and every article of clothing you own and chill your bones. Try to avoid dresses, they're not going to close campus unless its more than 60 mph winds, which happened once- during winter break...

2 College Freshman

Local Atmosphere: I try to avoid the ghetto parts, plus when I see people walking at night I fear for their safety.

3 College Freshman

Campus Strictness: We have a really strict Academic Integrity policy- so don't cheat. Don't even think about cheating. Once they catch a whiff, and they will, you're automatically put on review for suspension or expulsion. Parking is their equally strict sister, people get ticketed and fined so easily and frequently...

4 College Freshman

Majors: Only because I love the advising available to the English majors. They're really encouraging in terms of thinking outside the box and possible track paths. They work with what you want and modify it to what you need and can feasibly get (in terms of course load and classes).

5 College Freshman

Majors: Its really easy to switch your major, for a processing fee of $6.00, each time...Besides having to rite an essay for double majoring there isn't many obstacles for getting into certain programs on campus. The only exception is the nursing program, its impacted and stress levels are much higher for those students. Its highly competitive and cutthroat. The other majors/programs on campus are fairly accessible as long as you do the work and have the grades/letter of rec/ perseverance to back you up. It's smooth sailing from there.

3 College Freshman

Greek Life: Besides rush week, the Greeks aren't really visible.

3 College Freshman

Diversity: People here are different, we have plenty of foreign exchange students- mostly from Korea, Japan, and China. The only thing with that is everyone has their own clique...

2 College Freshman

Nightlife: We try to stay in at night, the crimes at San Bernardino are no joke.

5 College Freshman

Scholarships: Full-ride scholarship, its one of the reasons why I decided to go here. They cover everything and give you a stipend, plus they get to know you and try to make everything as accessible to you as possible as long as you show a commitment to your education.

The CSUSB experience is a quality education at an affordable price. There are numerous reasons to love the school. First of all, there are the people you meet. Many students meet lifelong friends at the University. There are opportunities to work on campus, live on campus, and to study abroad. In order for students to enjoy CSUSB, it's important to get involved. It's also important for freshmen to live on campus. While it can be expensive, it's a great way for first-year students to make friends and get used to college life.

In terms of the academics, the professors are extremely helpful and love when students come in for office hours. People in the main offices are always willing to help students, too. The motto of the school is, “Come Here Go Anywhere,” a statement which appears to be true. Classes for students' majors are designed to prepare them for work in their fields of study.
