Right Now, due to covid, there aren't many people on campus. I would describe campus life as dead, but I know that campus life will start booming once full occupancy is allowed for in person meetings. The admissions process was long and horrible, but that's because it took so long for LA County to finalize covid protocols. Overall it's a decent school, but if you're looking for a party school or lively school to go to, then pick another school.
As a first time freshman, they were amazing at making the transition from high school to college easy and amazing. From having one on one sessions discussing your classes to making it easy to understand and get your way around campus. College is really a on your own thing which can be stressful but CSUB made it where it isn’t as stressful by giving you tools on your portal to chats with other students. They really made it easy and a good experience so far.
There are resources for just about any type of student on campus. I'm an international student, and CSUN made the transition so easy and smooth for me. They really set you up for success.
The campus itself is very open to the public, if anyone wants to visit CSUN, they enable visitors to walk around campus as long as they want. During my weeks in CSUN, the professors are very kind and genuine to assist students if they need help with a specific topic on our assignments. They also provide our study sessions, considering most of us are online, including me. There are tons of programs, USU (University Student Union), study groups, major internships for careers, recreation programs, and lots more. I would the person reading this to consider CSUN as one of their top options to apply for, they're always open, you do need good grades, eligibility, program involvement, and the determination to improve yourself. If you want to live on campus, make sure to check on CSUN's website for more information, the student life is going to be different if some are asking. If you plan on going to college, be ahead of your class assignments, daily routines, food, money situation, and more.
I love CSUN. I didn't want to go away for college, and I am very fortunate to have such a great school nearby. I always felt like I was in a classroom during Zoom sessions, and have been very successful at CSUN. The school is very good at keeping students in loop for the latest news, opportunities, and ways to get involved.
I had a great time at CSUN on-campus (pre-pandemic). However, there are many students, including myself, who are too shy to participate when professors asked them if there are any questions, regardless if the class was a GE or required for your major, and this applies to both in-person and ZOOM classes online. On top of that, there are some students who flake out during group assignments.
I really enjoy the atmosphere that CSUN has created. People are prospering and flourishing with wisdom and excitement. Also, anyone is willing to help you out when you need a hand.
Cal State University, Northridge is a very diverse college. It is full of people from different races, backgrounds, religious beliefs, etc. This is one thing I loved about the campus. Professors at this college also really care about student success, they want us to succeed in the workforce and make a difference.
They are very understanding. They help you as much as possible. They guide you towards the best path. They answer very fast and help resolve problems effectively. Everyone is very kind and welcoming. The Matador community is a positive community that is a pleasure to be a part of.
I applied to CSUN because it was close. My online experience has been wonderful and I look forward to having at least one in person semester! Go matadors!
Csun was a very clean and I loved spending my four years here. There is a lot of diversity and everyone is friendly. I have made lifelong friends at this school and have received a quality education. I highly recommend this school.
Looking forward to attending such a diverse University with many career options and resources. Advisors have been great to work with, and staff are easily accesable.
The professors and staff are always willing to help and want students to succeed. The university offers so many resource to help students succeed whether it be tutoring for classes or free mental health counseling. They also have a food pantry for students who cannot afford groceries.
I took a tour on my own at the campus which is beautiful. The staff that was there were very polite and friendly which made me feel at ease. I look forward to spending the next chapter of my life there with such devoted people!
It was perfect for me when I was first out of High School. It was close and everyone was super kind and welcoming, however, with COVID and dealing with the pandemic I fell out of love and really felt like it was not handled very well for most of our time online.
There are many resources available for students to help them succeed, and the professors are there to assist students as well, I don't feel alone as a CSUN student!
California State University Northridge is very affordable and nice place to be educated. Students will not regret for choosing this university.
