I love all my professors! They are all help my mental health a lot. The campus does whatever it can to make sure we succeed in college!
The School offers great services! Make sure you take advantage of them. I love the neighborhood Theres always something to do.
I enjoy the Professors, the ones I have worked with have been knowledgeable and enthusiastic about their field. If I had to change anything it would be the length of time between the offering of certain classes.
I am a 2nd year at Chico and so far I am loving it! The professors, staff, and faculty I've met are all great and the students are so friendly and welcoming. The campus is gorgeous, small enough where everything is in walking or biking distance and very well organized. The only drawback would be the food at the dining hall, it isn't the best but they do accommodate for students with many different dietary restrictions. It is a party school, there's no doubt about that but there is a wide variety of students who either go out at lot or not at all so it's easy to fit in no matter your preference.
The nature scene is amazing near this campus as well as the welcoming community. As a college student, it is very reassuring to know that most all resources for me are provided on campus.
The transition to online learning as a result of COVID was surprisingly smooth. All professors were incredibly understanding and easy to get a hold of.
Enjoyed my time there. Some very caring and helpful professors. Loved the school gym and miss it dearly.
Liked some of the online courses because they were shorter and straight to the point. Professors where very good with response time.
Honestly, this a an amazing school. What I am most in love with is the scenery. It is so quiet and peaceful, the best decision I ever made.
My experience at CSU Chico was one of a kind. I truly enjoyed the close proximity of downtown to the campus and even the housing being affordable as well as close to campus. The campus lifestyle is very lively from all the events that happen during the day, Greek week, to live activist marches. There is always something going on and always a place for you to fit in. The college is known for its partying so I would say build a good habit of knowing when you can party and when it is time to study. The Library is a great place to get all of your studying or work done from being on the top floor with large tables for group projects, the computers, and white board areas. But I've found some of my best times of studying were going to Denny's with a few classmates, ordering some food to munch on and unlimited coffee. Become close with your professors and they will be glad to help you. Overall the experience was one that I will never forget and I'm sure you wont either.
In my time I only took a few online courses only because I learn better when I'm face to face with the teacher. But for the online courses I did take they were completely fine. Most of the work would be on the teachers site of choice or uploaded through your student portal. Full course outline, syllabus, and assignments. Every now and then there would be some technical issues but that's normal for online courses. If there ever was a issue, the professors were typically good about responding and trying to resolve the issue. Some professors will even lend their personal email or number if you need extra assistance or having an issue online. Overall the classes I took online were not a problem and easy to navigate.
They have great professors who are willing to help after class online. There is a class that assist you with all subject if you did not under your professor.
starting this fall and they administer at Chico state college are just so helpful and willing to answer all your questions.
Online zoom links barely work. Blackboard Learn is incredibly messy. The Student center (where you pay loans, sign up, etc.) literally looks like it was made in the early 90's. This school will take your money and not put it towards anything to benefit you.
Online learning has been a little stressful, but is something I am getting the hang of. Online learning is challenging but it is very easy to get help from others if needed.
I have visited campus many times. It is a beautiful campus and the student life is amazing! While I was there there were a few clubs outside getting the attention of students to join. Chico community is also very college oriented. The community feels like home away from home. There are great food options on and off campus!
Online learning has been very tough. Most professors are adaptable to the situation. The community as a whole has had to deal with so much (fires) since I have been here and the adaptability and understanding to hard situations is unmatched to any other school.
