4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Like I said, I really do enjoy this school. Class sizes are fairly small enough to the point where you can have a personal connection with your professor. Campus life in general is full of independent working students who are really just trying to get their education but wish at the same time that they had enough time to join something. Courses offered are average. It is definitely hard to get classes you want/need and scheduling will sometimes conflict with life because it's not offered enough. But other than that, I enjoy it very much.

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: The value of a degree from here is average; I don't really know much about it though.

3 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: I have never felt unsafe on the school campus. I also don't think our campus crime rate is very high at all honestly which is good especially for being in the area that it's in. Police and safety services are honestly average, nothing out of the ordinary.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: There genuinely is nothing special about dorming. I personally feel that people are paying what too much money for what they are getting out of those dorms--which is nothing.

3 College Sophomore

Greek Life: Greek life isn't the best or most popular at my school but it is something to definitely consider if someone is trying to be involved. I simply view Greek students as kids who want to have fun and make friends. I would love to join greek life but my reasoning why I don't is something more personal. What I don't like about Greek life is that girls are not allowed to have their own house. I think sororities should equally have the same rights as fraternities. EQUALLY.

2 College Sophomore

Athletics: There is really hardly any school spirit which hurts. I would like there to be the highest/most genuine kind of school spirit. But the fact that my school is a commuter school makes it hard to turn up the spirit. I do see a lot of students try to joint clubs just to represent the school somehow which I greatly appreciate.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I find myself really loving me school. I feel that the key is to be involved in something. It hurts that we are not very diverse or spirited enough but hopefully soon we will be. Every teacher I have had so far has cared enough to the point where they want me to succeed and that is the best kind of teacher anyone can have. I would choose my school again but I would definitely change my mind about choosing to stay home.

4 College Student

Overall Experience: I think it's a really great school, my first professor is amazing. I would choose this school again, because it has a great engineering program and advisers. It's very diverse and the mountain view is beautiful.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Professors are very intuitive and take interest in each individual students. Professors challenge students in order to take greatness out of them.

3 College Sophomore

Athletics: As part of the athletics department, the team performance from each sport is incredibly great. Every student athlete has the drive and will to make this University great. Although not many students support, we try as much as we can to reach out to students and allow to participate in watching our great athletes perform. I believe that we need people that are willing to promote the athletics, so we can have support from fans just like any other university. With a lot of controversial changes happening, it is difficult for student athletes to focus on their students which is what is important as well. But being any athlete at this University, has been great.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: My overall first experience in college has been very challenging. I have overcome obstacles that I have never thought I would face. What makes this university unique is the diversity and the intent that every professor and student has. Everyone comes together in order to achieve one thing; success. Although some professors are difficult to handle, they each have a purpose for their students. The experience that I have, does not make me want to choose another university because of the care and treatment that individual students have.

1 Recent Alumnus

Greek Life: Greek life is awful. It adds this air of pompousness to the individuals who partake in greek life even though they're nothing special. Overall the individuals involved in greek life seem to have a lowered level of maturity as they are typically the ones who are more focused on partying over school.

2 Recent Alumnus

Athletics: I was a club sports player for 3 years. The team was good and one of if not the only D1 team on campus and the sports office was almost not willing to help us at all with anything. We had to pay tons of money only to never see where it went. As far as varsity athletics, they didn't seem popular at all, the school would probably do well with a football team again but the other sports don't seem to be attended that often.

3 Recent Alumnus

Overall Experience: Chico State has good programs and teachers are knowledgable and care about student success. The issue with this school is the large focus of the student body on partying. Due to this the school still brings in a large crowd of students that don't necessarily care about getting a fulfilling education.

3 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: I feel relatively safe at school, but there are areas where there is dime lighting and I don't feel as safe walking alone

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: If you are willing to put the effort into your education, there are many programs available to help you along the way.

3 College Sophomore

Greek Life: I see some students with their Greek attire but they aren't a big deal on campus

3 College Sophomore

Athletics: Athletics are somewhat popular, but not as popular compared to other universities.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I really enjoy that my campus is close to home. Students and staff are always friendly and very helpful.

3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I have no problem with getting classes or the class sizes so far, but things could be better.

3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Campus jobs are very difficult to get and very biased, unless you know someone already working there, you'll never hear back from them no matter how good your qualifications may be.

4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: Pretty good, other than the occasional creep that pops up on campus, especially in the library or parking structures, things are relatively safe.

2 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Campus housing isn't the best, it's convenient, but I wouldn't recommend it unless you have to because your international or from outta state.

4 College Freshman

Greek Life: Fraternities tend to have houses, but sororities not really. Everyone says that they're easy to get into, but I've spoken to some greek friends and it was hard for them because there's a certain limit to how many people they can take in. Other than that most students who work on campus tend to be greek, even the alumni who tend to work on campus are usually greek, so although people may not think that greek life is pretty big they should look into it and see that most greeks are actually helping out the campus quite a lot.

3 College Freshman

Athletics: School spirit is sorta lacking and not many students really care for anything aside their classes. It's probably because it's a commuter school, but even so student latch on to that reason and don't put any effort to even try.
