California State University - Channel Islands Reviews
I am a senior and will be graduating CSUCI in 2018, but I can not leave without giving my honest review about the campus itself. It a great campus, great location and great environment! Most all professors teaching at CI are warm hearted, especially all science professors. I give it 4 stars because I feel that advising and counseling could improve, its what most students complain about. It is a communter school, but there are many students and professors that will have the same interest or have great advice to help you throughout your undergrad.
The education program is amazing at CSUCI. The professors are very passionate about teaching and encouraging you to succeed in you academics. The Special Education program is great. It is close to the beach and has all you need on campus. Great students, with a diverse campus atmosphere. Many different clubs and programs on campus. We have great food in town center!
Avoid this school if possible, especially if you want to stay on campus. Campus living is isolated and depressing for many students, there's just not much to do on campus or in the surrounding area. Many students leave on weekends to "get away". I had a horrible transfer experience with this school. They have only a handful of advisors, it's hard to get the help you need and they will argue with you about accepting pretty basic classes like English 102. There's not enough parking. The worst parking I've seen and I've attended multiple schools in two states. Arriving an hour before class doesn't always work. I've missed classes at times looking for parking. Food options are very expensive and the quality is pretty low. Expect to eat from vending machines most days if you can find one near class. Theres a few restaurants on the opposite side of campus from where classes are located. This is your best bet for food and a cup of coffee.
