While CSUN isn't known for being where the brightest minds in the country go, students still receive a quality education, with professors that want to see their pupils succeed. Students are pretty grateful for their education, too, especially since it can be rather difficult to register for classes. Classes are almost always fully enrolled, so being in a class you want or need to take is a wonderful privilege. The kinesiology department is especially popular, being one of the top programs of its kind in California.
Even though there may not be enough classes for students, there are plenty of other resources, including tutoring services, of which students can take advantage. You'll find that the professors in the classes are pretty friendly and welcoming; they work hard to educate, not just lecture and instruct students. Plus, they are generally available to students during office hours. Workloads and classes vary by major, with some students saying that they have an average amount of work, and others, like engineering majors, complaining that they are bogged down with courses and studying.
