California State University - Chico Reviews
I've just started at CSU Chico; I'm going to be a sophomore! I can't believe my first year of college is over! I'm so thankful that I chose to attend CSU Chico. The campus is completely gorgeous with tall elegant trees, bright flowers, and the babbling Big Chico Creek cutting through. All the classes I've taken so far have been extremely interesting and well taught. The only complaints I have would be with the administration. It seems like they don't really listen to the students very well. This is specifically targeted towards the recent decision of the president of the school decided to enact tuition fee increases despite overwhelming negative student sentiment. It would be nice if the admin actually listened to us.
I really enjoy CSU Chico and everything they have to offer. They have a great selection of bachelor degrees to choose from sustainability to game design. It is a gorgeous location and truly makes you feel one with the community. They are always trying to improve their sustainability and the small town makes it easy to walk or bike to school from an apartment complex. The campus housing is a bit expensive for the quality of living they provide, but the academics are very tremendous as the school only hires professors that have life experience within the specific courses that the students are taking. I am a Game Design major and I find it wonderful to go to my classes and know that my professors have their own gaming studios and are working on the same assignments that we are, but they have to produce an actual game from it. There are quite a few parties in the downtown area but if you are able to balance school and life then you will do tremendously well at CSU Chico!
I fell in love with Chico State the second I stepped foot on campus. They provide an extremely accepting atmosphere on top of constantly keeping students in the loop on events that happen throughout the school year! Chico State offers a variety of helpful resources such as tutoring, aides, great places to study on campus, etc. I also love Chico State for being so involved in Chico's community as a whole. It has the most BEAUTIFUL campus with many trees and gorgeous greenery as well as original buildings.
