If you're into some diversity/ small town with a lot of opportunities, CSU Stanislaus is right for you! This college is beautiful for a campus that's not too big nor too small. The staff is rear in a small community, you get more help especially from your professors/ advisors. The faculty members/ students are welcoming too. I hope you enjoy this campus as much as I do. There is a lot of school activities and it is cheaper than most State Universities!
This school is not too big for a public university. Therefore, you get a lot more one on one help with counseling and financial aid. The campus is also very beautiful and easy to find classes and buildings. They have a variety of majors that caters to many students and what they hope to achieve. The classes are also a very nice size and makes it easy to form study groups and get a hold of the professors for further questions. Overall I do recommend considering this school to complete your higher education and enjoy the resources that are offered.
I really think it depends on what field you're in. In geology, the professors are always talking about the kinds of job opportunities you have. There's a whole class devoted to how you can use geology in your future career, and we went on a field trip to visit different mines and whatnot. Sometimes we'd get people

In the art department it's a little different. You take a gallery management/internship class so you can learn what it's like to work in a gallery. You can also get a job in the campus gallery once you've got enough experience. The professors try to help us get into grad schools and such.
