Very beautiful campus, friendly piers and teaching staff is very dedicated to giving their students a quality learning experience. Very large campus, but have all the typical necessities of a college student. Anything you may need is easily accessible, and you never have to be afraid to ask for help. Administration is very helpful. School itself is a very peaceful and productive environment.

I liked the school. Every student there was so nice and welcoming. If you can't find where you're going anyone can help you out. I also like the fact that the school offers a lot of help to ever student. Doesn't matter what major you're planning to achieve, the faculty there helps out a lot. The dorms are so wonderful. You could choose where you want to stay. It doesn't have to be my majors. The students there are wonderful and helpful. Overall, CSUF is a wonderful school to go to.

A large enough school to have variety and options, but not so large you feel lost whenever you step on campus.
