3 College Sophomore

Athletics: I dont know a lot about the athletics department but the athletic facilities are great

3 College Junior

Athletics: Cal State San Marcos does not have a football team so there isn't much team spirit in sports. They actually just recently built a basketball stadium on campus so I hope there will be more encouragement of me to go to the games and cheer on my school.
