Review California State University - Chico
Chico State is the second oldest California State University Campus. It offers many different majors including: bussiness management, Psychology, Social Sciences, Fitness Studies, and more. The more I visit the campus, the more I fall in love with it. Chico State has such a beautiful, nature- oriented, campus over one hundred different types of plant species. Although their diversity has indeed increased over this past few year, I would love to see more diversity in the campus. Diversity allows people to have a deeper knowledge of other cultures and better understand the importance of being surrounded by different races.
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!
Chico State is an amazing school, with great opportunities. It is a college based town, and the students are friendly! I am a legal studies major and they have a great program that offers many internships. The student advisers are very helpful and there is always something going on within the campus. there is an organization for anyone, and the professors really seem to care.
