California State University - Northridge Reviews
Very inclusive, there's something for everyone. There is always events happening around campus so there are no boring days at CSUN. There's always new additions being added to the school that help it become a safer, cleaner, and more efficient campus, such as CSUN becoming a smoke-free school. The professors at CSUN are your best friends when it comes to your academics, their door is always open to their students wether it be for help on a topic discussed in class or if you have something on your mind and want to talk to someone about it. CSUN has a very friendly and welcoming environment!
Attending Cal State Northridge has been an amazing experience. Coming from a low income high school and family, I had no prior knowledge on anything related to college. I entered college confused and scared. I did not know what career I wanted to pursue or how to pay for school. The faculty is incredible! They provided resources and guidance, which was very beneficial. I could not ask for a better college experience. I am now a Senior at CSUN, graduating Spring 2018 with a 3.5 GPA. I will definitely walk out of college feeling accomplished and prepared for the outside world.
I love CSUN! I have had a great experience at CSUN so far and am looking forward to my next 2 years here. My favorite part about this campus is the SRC and the oasis center. SRC is a gym that is fairly new to the campus, it is here stories high and is filled with new workout equipment. My second favorite part of the campus is the oasis center. The oasis is a quit area where you can unwind from a stressful day of classes or between classes if you have a break. The oasis has sleeping pods, managing chairs, and a zen garden. It really makes me feel at peace and takes me out of a stressful mindset. I can't forget the farmers market on Tuesdays from 10am to 2pm. The farmers market is my all time favorite, they have all sorts of food tents and fresh fruit, they even have clothing and jewelry stands. I love CSUN and everything that it has to offer.
