Review California State University - Chico
Class sizes are great! The size of the classes are relatively small so the professors get to know your name and you incorporate a closer bond with them. The only thing that does make the Chico experience difficult is when it comes to office hours because there a professors where they make it seem like they don't care about you. From personal experience, I stopped going to some of my professors' office hours because they don't really help you. They mainly just give you your score in the class but even then that is posted online. Some of the classes are half online and half where you go to the traditional classroom so you'll never miss what was done in class so that is convenient!
So far my experience at Chico state has been amazing! I have met a lot of people and really enjoy being here. I lived in Southern California my whole life, so I thought coming up here would be difficult but I found that it wasn't very hard to assimilate to everything up here. I would like to see a bigger change in some shops in the downtown area because there are some nice places but not a lot. Other than that I have really enjoyed my time up here so far!
As a current Junior, I have been an intern for a Community Information Center for 8 Months. My professors who are also attorneys are amazing and I have gained so much knowledge and wisdom ever since I started here at Chico State. The professors continue to inform students of countless opportunities jobs regarding jobs that relate to their major, internships, and they encourage us to study abroad! So far I love the student exchange study abroad program that Chico State has to offer.
