Review California State University - Bakersfield
This semester was a very confusing change for all of us. It is definitely going to take more than one semester to readjust. The staff and administration had a good plan going on but, the details were all a fuzzy to us students. You couldn't just ask one faculty member to see if certain information was correct, you had to ask at least three others to make sure what you're doing was correct. In our eyes the professors seemed either rushed or that they had "finished the material too early/ had too much time". There were also a lot of questions on which students would follow the semester catalog, the quarter catalog, or if they can follow quarter catalog for their major, and semester for the general education (and vice versa). With all of this confusion, however, I felt that the professors did a great job in remaining enthusiastic throughout the entire semester while most students were ready to "clock out" by week 10. We still have some adjusting to do but it's steadily going up hill.
The professors are very helpful and will go above and beyond to help you and make sure you learn the material. The Psyc department and advisors in particular are so genuine and really do want to help you succeed. Overall, great school!
Csub is really great at keeping the student body amped and in the school spirit for events and games. Every, and I mean every, faculty member from the admission office to the ladies in Peet's Coffee shop, are some of the nicest, friendliest and helpful people. You really feel welcome and at home on campus, and as a first year student, I know my remaining years here will only improve. There's so much school spirit, and anyone can tell we're very proud to be Runners by our demeanor and participation in games or other fun activities. Can't wait to see what's in store for us as we pursue lifelong careers. Go Runners!!
