California State University is the perfect place for someone looking for a interactive community that you can stay connected with, while still getting the feel of a large university. There are plenty of options for on-campus activities, and the professors are willing to work with you on a one-on-one basis. The only thing to watch out for is that the difficulty of classes ranges widely depending on the professor, even for the same class or subject. Make sure you know which professor you are taking and what level of difficulty to expect. Just because someone says a certain class is easy does NOT mean that it is, check your professor first! This is also an incredibly affordable college, which is part of the reason I chose it! Even though I did not have to pay much, my degree is still widely recognized and considered in high regard. It's great!

It's such a huge University that it can fit so many people's tastes. There are tons of organizations that at least one will interest you. A lot of the students are very relaxed and you'll easily find conversation in class and friends everywhere. People are very conscious about keeping their surroundings clean. You'll find a lot of students relaxing on the grass or studying with friends, and overall it's a great atmosphere to be around. My favorite place is the library because it's so large and has been my main to-go place my whole time at CSULB. Go Beach!

I'd say that athletics is a part of most students' campus to varying degrees; on one end you have students who attend sports matches in addition to students who participate in some kind of recreational activity, such as biking and usually as part of a club, and on the other end you have students who are athletes, either by being members of a gym or the schools official sports team. I am somewhere in between as someone who is part of CSULB's gym called the Student Recreation and Wellness Center (SRWC), a facility that's open to students, given that it's membership fee is included in our tuition. And of all the resources on campus, the SRWC would have to be my personal favorite because it opens as early as 6 am, has its own swimming pool, a free weight training section, and indoor track, located on the second floor with it's own timer. These are the features I have used and don't cover all of the resources available to students with a wide range of interests!
