3 College Freshman

Party Scene: It varies sometimes there is a really good party but it gets rated early by the cops; something that I hate with the freat parties they have a 2:1 women ratio so its hard for guys who are not part of the house to get in.

Campus Food: I love how In sierra Hall have different options of food from salads to Chinese food

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: I hate when they clouse the gates at 7:30 and then open them at 2:30 It makes no sense why they do this to early

Off-Campus Dining: There are a lot of options to eat within the immediate area of the school and more than a few places offer student discounts if you present an ID. The selection can be fairly limited, but if you're trying to save money, and the value is pretty good, then those are some solid options.

Administration: I usually ride a long board to campus and back from my apartment because I only live half a mile off of the edge of campus.

2 College Junior

Scholarships: Parking is totally insane on campus at CSUN. There are almost no spots in any auxiliary spots lots around the campus past 9 A.M. The only spots that do are the parking structures and it can take up to 10-15 minutes sometimes to exit the structures from the sheer volume of people all trying to leave at once.

4 College Junior

Party Scene: All the technology in the classrooms that teachers are now taking advantage of is some of the most advanced I've ever seen. None of this technology was available or utilized 4 years ago when i was at Chico State University.

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.
