I have completed my first semester at California State University Los Angeles and my first year experience has been very positive. The faculty and administrative staff on this campus have been exceedingly helpful in my success as an undergraduate and invested in my post graduate potential. This university offers a range of resources such as a 24 hour computer lab and mental health aid, as well as hosting a variety of cultural events. Student demographics are remarkably diverse; this university is unique in that it is actually representative of the city it occupies. While some students may not like the dominant commuter atmosphere, I find that it provides students the freedom from finding themselves caught in a college bubble that insulates them from the wider community. I conclude that CSULA is ideal for non-traditional students such as working students, community college transfers, parents and DACA recipients.

In Spring 2015 I transferred to California State University of Los Angeles, majoring in Communication Disorders. I had no idea what this major actually entailed, but after my first quarter of introductory classes I learned about speech-language pathology. The professor of those two classes inspired me beyond what I ever thought this major could offer me. I received my BA in Communication Disorders in Fall 2016, and am now applying for master's in speech-language pathology.

The professors I've had are all so awesome! Passionate, determined, intelligent, and experienced in their field. Classes are average, require studying and often outside field work. The variety of courses offered could improve (I.e. Sustainability, environmental studies) but overall very enjoyable.
