California State University-Fullerton is a great university! To be honest, CSUF wasn't my first choice but after a few semesters, I grew to love this school. The atmosphere here is great!

Teachers:
CSUF has some of the nicest university teachers out there. The teachers here also seem to enjoy what they do, which provides an upbeat, positive atmosphere for the students to learn! They're all very helpful and try to help students understand the materials needed to pass the course.

Greek Life:
CSUF doesn't seem to care much about the Greek life. Everyone is friendly with one another and people in sororities/frats never discriminate against others, who aren't involved with the Greek life.

Parking:
The only downside is the parking, which always seems to run out by 9am! But there are other places CSUF allows you to park, such as Brea Mall or a church, which provides a free shuttle ride to and from CSUF.
Review California State University - Fullerton
I've only been attending CSUF for a year now, however, I can definitely say that I am loving the experience. The classes I've taken so far are wonderful and the professors are always so engaging and willing to help any student who asks. The campus itself is modern and clean. One thing I especially love about the campus is that it has an arboretum. I tend to go there during my breaks and just immerse myself in nature whilst studying. The only complaint I have is the parking, which is a complete nightmare! If there were more parking structures for students and school staff to use, I'd be a happy camper.
So far in my college career, I've had a great experience with the school. The campus is nice - the arboretum is beautiful. The people are friendly and you meet people from all over the world! From my personal experience, the professors that I've had were all great and cared about their students. There are also a lot events that are great for meeting new people. I definitely enjoyed my first year there and I'm excited to return for the fall semester soon.
