I like how green the campus is and how the classes are not too large in size. The teachers are really approachable and friendly.

As someone who not only goes to school here, but works for the university, I must say this is the Cal State School by far. The level of inclusive activities and diversity awareness and follow through is amazing and just the kindness that radiates from anyone working on the campus makes this campus so welcoming. Not only is it beautiful on the outside physically, but beautiful on the inside socially as well.

When I was first accepted into California State University, Channel Islands it was not my first choice school what so ever. As my freshman year of college was rapidly approaching I decided to attend CSUCI with full intentions to transfer after two years. Now going into my sophomore year I couldn't be happier with my choice. Small class sizes, a beautiful campus, and an extremely helpful student body makes this an amazing college. I have no regrets with choosing CSUCI and I'm excited to continue my education as a Channel Island's Dolphin!
