4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: The dorms was actually bigger than i expected

5 College Freshman

Athletics: The athletics are the best and have the best school to support them

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Its a great school and i can really be myself

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Most of the classes I have had have a reasonable amount of student in each classroom. The professors are not always the greatest but they do seem to care about their students doing well and learning the material.

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Although many of the staff members are students of the university, I feel like most of the jobs go to the upper class men and not many underclassmen are hired.

4 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: It is always scary to walk alone at night no matter where you are. CSUN offers rides back to your dorm or car when it starts to get dark out. I find it comforting to know that campus police and patrol are going around at night making sure everyone is safe. I have been escorted by campus patrol plenty of times and they are very friendly and helpful.

5 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: Csun student housing has a great atmophsere. There are plenty of places to go when you need to study, grab a bite to eat, need to buy anything you'd buy at a market, and a great place to go hangout and meet people. I lived there my first year of college and I loved it. They people were great, the staff was amazing, and I was able to go places to study and do homework as well.

3 College Sophomore

Greek Life: A lot of people in my classes are in fraternies or sororities. It is not always like the movies where you see them partying and being irresponsible, but they actually do many projects for the school or to go it and help the community. I myself am not in a sorority but I know many people that are in them and they do not act differently towards me because I am not involved in Greek life.

4 College Sophomore

Athletics: A lot of our students are involved in varsity sports or intramurals. If not, many will go to the gym and play with groups of people. As for varsity games, many students come out to support the teams.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: My school offers plenty of help and support to their students. They make sure that everyone feels comfortable on campus and makes sure that everyone is getting the help that they need to graduate.

4 College Sophomore

Academics: Library is always a good place to study.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Professors are funny and easygoing.

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Wish I had more time frames to pick from because night classes do not work well for me.

3 College Junior

Greek Life: The school does not revolve around them so it's good.

3 College Junior

Athletics: I've never attended any games at my school so I'm not the best to explain but i hear they're really fun.

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.
