3 College Senior

Greek Life: Greek life at my institution tends to be under the radar as we are a communal school where people generally attend classes, and either go to work or home to spend time with their families.

5 College Senior

Overall Experience: My experience at California State University, Bakersfield has been exceptional because of how accessible research opportunities are in every department. As a psychology major, my research experiences played a major role in determining my acceptance to a doctoral program at Claremont Graduate University.

4 College Senior

Athletics: My current institution, California State University, Bakersfield is a small state school in the San Joaquin Valley of Central California in which sporting events are generally attended. We are not a powerhouse when it comes to athletics, however, students and community members gather behind our teams during the school year.

5 College Senior

Health & Safety: The campus police and other staff and faculty make sure that we have a safe and welcoming environment to learn in on our campus.

5 College Senior

Overall Experience: There is no better fit for me than CSUB. It has given me everything I needed and more. There are so many people and things that I have gotten to experience here that have set me for life. The courses offered are more intimate because we have the pleasure of smaller class sizes. We have the opportunity to have the classes to go more towards our interests within the particular subject.

4 College Senior

Overall Experience: I feel like there are some people that kind of look down on the value of a degree from this school because Bakersfield gets such a poor mentioning from most people. A majority of the people who come from this school get are well rounded talented individuals and because of this are perfect fits for whatever job they go into.

4 College Senior

Greek Life: Most of the people you meet that are involved in Greek Life are great; it's those few bad ones that tend to ruin the name of the others.

3 College Senior

Athletics: I personally think that a little too much money goes into our sports and related activities, but it is what brings most of the people and money to our school.

5 College Senior

Overall Experience: While CSUB wasn't exactly what I wanted at first, it has turned out to be the best choice I could have made. The class sizes are perfect, no more than 20-30 in most of my upper division courses. I have gotten some amazing opportunities and been in some amazing programs since my time here at CSUB. I will get to continue with these amazing opportunities and programs in my next few years as a graduate student with our rural residency program.

5 College Senior

Overall Experience: Classes are good, and the professors will take the time to talk with you and give suggestions if you need help. There are many courses offered that are interesting. I wish I could afford to take more.

Overall Experience: The career center offers many networking assistance and also many employers directly recruit from there locally. Also, the university itself has hired as lecturer many who have just graduated from there. Awesome!

5 College Senior

Health & Safety: I have never had a problem on campus, even when I had class till 10PM. I feel very safe there.

3 College Senior

Greek Life: They have activities and other events. They are supportive of their campus and all students.

5 College Senior

Overall Experience: This school has been incredibly supportive and encouraging to me. It is top notch for the way the professors are engaged with not only campus life but students. I have found it easy to speak to all professors. I really love my campus and it is my first choice for graduate school also.

4 College Senior

Athletics: The athletic department teams are the Roadrunners. This includes basketball, volleyball, and baseball to name a few. The spirit of the athletic department is bursting with support and pride. There is a lot of fan, school, as well as community support for these athletes. There is always some type of event, game, activity, or fundraiser going on at the campus for them. Many fundraiser are even open to the public such as BBQ events and such. All the athletes I have met are very nice.

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: While not the best university CSUB has provided me a comfortable starting point to begin my education.

1 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Outside of Bakersfield, CSUB offers very little in terms of an alumni network, job and internship prospects post undergrad, and employers looking to hire. The University degree by itself probably won't impress anyone.

4 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: With initiatives and signs posted everywhere, the campus seems dedicated to keeping students aware and safe. Theres also implemented security with phone numbers to contact them if you feel unsafe on campus, police escorts to cars after sunset, and regular emails updating you on security features.

3 College Sophomore

Greek Life: Greek life on CSUB campus is very understated. After rush week it's easy to forget they're there at all.

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Nothing about the university stands out. Throughout everything offerred, the majority of things are mediocre while some are just terrible. I wouldn't choose my school again because the teachers are too frank with the fact that they hate their jobs. They make that a larger class discussion then they do the actual coursework. Beyond that, the general education classes take more time then they should to complete, and never feel worthwhile - but like a blatant money grab when you start factoring in prices of books, lab fees, supply fees, etc for requirements that only have one or two ways to satisfy it, and neither class is something you'd be interested in perusing. At times the majority of the classes feel like a waste of time, and classes I would be interested in taking only show up once every couple years and fill up in the first 20 hours. All in all, a very mediocre experience.

3 College Sophomore

Athletics: Don't hear much about them beyond scheduling and when students will miss classes to attend sporting events

3 College Freshman

Health & Safety: There are escorts to go with a student if they are not feeling safe, however it is bad because they take a long time to respond. We need more officers on campus.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Everyone is very helpful, this is a great school that gives students a lot of help.

3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: There are always job/internship fairs available for students which is very good for the students to interact.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: The walls are too thin that is not so good cause we can hear everything form upstairs and next door. However, it is very safe here.
