Campus Housing: living on campus cost way too much money

5 College Sophomore

Athletics: The gym is huge and it is included with the intuition.

5 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: It is not as strict as on-campus housing.

5 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: There are many places off-campus to eat. It all depends on what you want to eat.

4 College Sophomore

Administration: There is not many rules, but in college you have to behave like a mature adult and attend classes because you want to and not because you have to.

3 College Sophomore

Party Scene: I don't know, I don't attend these parties. I have heard about them.

3 College Sophomore

Scholarships: It's okay, but if you are independent and your parents make a fair amount of money it is not good enough.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Food: For when you are hungry and need to eat quick before a class, the food is good.

3 College Junior

Greek Life: I think getting into a sorority can be easy or difficult, however, it always depends on the sorority.

3 College Junior

Athletics: I think that the athletic facilities are great.

4 College Junior

Off-Campus Dining: I think the off campus dining options are great. Some of the choices that I have come across are Japanese food, Middle Eastern food, Mexican food, to name a few. The prices from these places is affordable.

3 College Junior

Administration: I think the administration did a great job. Since their policies are strict in some areas which is nice, however when it comes to protests they are lenient. It is difficult sometimes to pay attention when someone is screaming their lungs out.

3 College Junior

Party Scene: I have not gone to any parties on campus. I prefer to attend club meetings.

5 College Junior

Campus Food: In my opinion, the food on campus is the best since they have a wide variety of food, the food is on the healthy side, and the food that does not belong to large chains(like subway) is cheap and tasty.

4 College Junior

Campus Housing: Although I am not currently living on campus, I think that it provides a great social atmosphere for students since there are many places one can hang out between classes, there are many free events, and food is cheap allowing students to eat and socialize.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: I've never seen off campus housing, so I can't say for myself

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: A lot of options around campus. Sushi, boba, mexican etc.

Overall ExperienceWhat's this?

View student contributors

On the whole, students most satisfied with their experience are very involved in the heart of the school. Many students choose to become RAs or ambassadors, work in the Matador Involvement Center or the Design Factory, join a sorority/fraternity, or get involved in intramurals or club sports. CSUN is a commuter school, meaning that most students live at home and commute to school. Because so many students are native to the area, they are not compelled to meet new people and participate in school activities. Years later, many of these commuter students say that the school lacks a social scene and they wish they had moved away from home to go to college. On the other hand, other CSUN students move from small, rural towns to go to a college in the city, and they absolutely love the campus. However, students are correct when saying that Northridge isn't a typical college town. Most of the partying takes place in Los Angeles. Many students also acknowledge that the school has a laid-back atmosphere about academics, which allows students to work and live a life beyond their computer screen. Students cite the school's ubiquitous diversity as a pinnacle example of how students can learn from their environment by hearing the voice and seeing the values of different cultures.
