I've been attending CSULA since my freshman year and I am happy to say the school has provided an amazing experience with the staff, peers, and campus student life.
I have had some pretty great professors here, but of course like any other school, they had some that taught in a less captivating way. There are some good people here, and they have some a lot of fun events.
I really enjoy attending CSULA as a student I receive all the help I need there are a lot of staff and professors willing to help me with anything. CSULA is a community and everyone feels welcome. The thing that I enjoy most about CSULA is the homework help as well as the tutors that we have on campus. They help with essays, homework assignments, etc. CSULA offers a lot of financial support such as letting you know the right places to apply for financial help as well as how to apply for it. As a current student attending CSULA, I have noticed that professors are very helpful to the point where they encourage you to attend their office hours so you don't fail. Professors and staff want you to succeed. Attending CSULA sports events is one of my favorite things of all because you get to feel involved and meet new people and make new friendships. Everyone encourages you to have fun and study hard.
I liked that I got to meet new people; although, I feel like the campus is very secluded to society in the matter of it is in a very secluded area. Not enough places to explore around, not enough exposure, etc.
Last spring semester, I had Chem 1040 with Professor Kimo Yap. Only 8 out of 68 students had at least a C grade according to the CSULA Grade Distribution Report. The average gpa was only 0.92! A classmate and I asked Prof Kimo Yap for help once and he refused to answer our questions. He told us that he covered that topic in his lecture. We attended that lecture but we were asking for help and he would not answer our questions. At the start of this semester, a complaint was made to the Science College Dean, however, Prof Kimo Yap is scheduled to teach this class again next spring. My other professors have been very good.
This school is full of the dumbest staff and students in California. Everyone here is quite uneducated and those of you who want to come here because on paper it is cheap, then DONT. The reason why is because you get the worst quality school. Do anything you can to avoid this school. If you are in-state, use the CA promise program to go to any CSU you want, there is even a version of this for UC's. Tuition can also be waived in many many ways for more expensive schools, just DONT GO TO THIS ONE!
I enjoy my school! However the campus is dated, meaning during our hot summers, the AC doesn’t work. Many of the restrooms have issues as well. Many of the teachers are excellent but there are also some that aren’t! As with anything, doing your research is important when choosing a teacher! Overall the school offers assistance with learning and any other help you need!
Its a wonderful university with some minor problems such as the dorms, professor and even the campus food. There is not a lot of variety of foods in the Campus so I would recommend getting on the go or just going the place to get the specific food. I recommend using rate my professor if you want to know what type of professor that you would get.
I love the professors and history department at Calstate LA. There are plenty of educational, career, and student support resources at the school. Compared to other colleges the dorms are great. The only reason I am transferring is because I never felt a strong sense of community, but other students I know feel differently. There's a lot to experience at Calstate LA for education and there's a decent party scene at the dorms.
Local, diverse, mostly fun and knowledgable professors. The campus is what you make of it: use the gym, walk the track, utilize the study rooms in the library and in the student union. Attend student events and hangout in the lounge.
My experience as a Csula student has been the most interesting thing. My classes have all been amazing and my professors have been an incredible help when I need it.
I would like to see the college get more involved with the students. There is no help for students. Even if we ask, often the staff hardly is knowledgeable enough to help the students. Some staff are rude.
The experience at California State University - Los Angeles is very good because there are free and you can make new friends easily. As a student at CSULA, I look at how schools will ask for other opinions. Also, as an on-campus student, I all of the staff are very nice and they will be very patience with students. For example, when I get my mail they will give it to me quickly and teachers like to talk to students like friends.
The campus is pretty easy to navigate. I enjoy that there’s a lot of open areas to go study or chill in between classes. Most of the classes are really good in terms of size and interactions with the staff. Professors are all readily available to help you out.
The staff members of the school are pretty good at communication in regard to things that are needed for each semester. The counselors are helpful and can be very straightforward when needed.
My experience of the campus of CSULA is the structure of the campus. The parking lots are conveniently close to campus. The campus itself is very beautiful using trees and many tables for students to enjoy the air outside. I love how there are tables that have supplies free for students. There was a table which had masks and hand sanitizer free for the students which is very convenient and great for student to stay safe and clean!
I want the vast diversity and academics here at Cal State. I've been living on the campus this month, and I like the housing space, security, and environment. As well as the incredible staff and job opportunities among the students on campus. Not to mention their technology loans, EOP program, and campus events. I feel our student investment in tuition goes well with on-campus events, and every meal plan offered has the best quality fresh food. It handles the best compared to my last high school when the staff was not professional and the lunch food wasn't well regulated at all. However, I believe the housing prices are a little bit expensive, and I think, as students we should have more scholarship options or more programs that help low-income students afford their housing. When I moved in, due to the distance from my house, I was required to take both housing and meal plans mandatory, therefore I had to take loans to cover it unfortunaly. Despite that I like the university so far.
