California State University - Monterey Bay Reviews
I am transferring there in the Spring, and so far the process has been easy! I was a bit worried because I was doing the process of applying on my own, but their website had step-by-step instructions which which were very helpful. The school has also kept me updated by sending me important deadlines and information via email. I have visited the campus a few times. Although, the location is beautiful and has history the actual campus is a bit dual. There are a few new buildings and parking lots, but I think the school needs improvement.
California State University Monterey Bay is turning into a very good business school. From day one, the school’s incoming freshman are taught how the world of business writes. From the beginning till you graduate, these standards are reinforce in every class. The school listens to the business community and tailor the academics to meet these demands. Upon graduation, the student enters the business way ahead of their peers from other universities. The school is ready to expand and building new buildings across the campus to meet these demands. The instructors are great, plus the setting of Monterey Bay makes learning at the university more enjoyable.
In the 3 semesters that I have been at CSUMB, I have really enjoyed it! I have found that this campus is the perfect fit for me, I have found clubs that are in my interest, and I am very appreciative of the professors on campus. They really value understanding and participation and are devoted to helping you in their course. It can be frustrating trying to get in connection with Financial Aid and get things all in order for the semester, but other than that, the school is a great place, and it is just a walk from the beach.
