Review California State University - Monterey Bay
In the 3 semesters that I have been at CSUMB, I have really enjoyed it! I have found that this campus is the perfect fit for me, I have found clubs that are in my interest, and I am very appreciative of the professors on campus. They really value understanding and participation and are devoted to helping you in their course. It can be frustrating trying to get in connection with Financial Aid and get things all in order for the semester, but other than that, the school is a great place, and it is just a walk from the beach.
Attending Monterey was a great decision! I love this school, I have learned many useful information. I love that the professors actually get to know you because class sizes are small. The only thing I would ch age about CSUMB is the parking situation, there are not enough parking spaces. Overall, it is a great school and am homered to soon be called an alumna from CSUMB.
If you like the outdoors, you'll want to be here. Since all the buildings on campus are compacted into a small space, you'll love to explore the rest of campus. It's especially exciting to walk into the forests and find the remnants of the old military buildings! Plus, the beach is literally a walk from the campus too! This school is quiet the culture shock for people who are used to the big city, so be aware of that, too.
