My experience with this college is not a good one, but I only had contact with the Geology department back in 2006-2007. Dr. Britt Leatham is amazing, and a super genius right out of the Simpson's! Dr. Erik Melchiorre is out of the Lord of the Rings movie, part elf, part dwarf character. Dr. Fryxell and Dr. Smith are old antiquated professors that need to retire. We should have learned so much more than what they were teaching at the time, I am untrained in real world geological field work, thank god for the option to go to Geology field camp, which I did at Southern Oregon Univ. Way better program with better professors this is where I learned how to map and identify rocks in the field. One caveat, it looks like the department hired new professors,so it might be a better program now with Dr. McGill teaching again with new professors. What I got was a power struggle between the 3 professors mentioned with Dr. Leatham the only one knowing what the hell was going on in the real world.
Review California State University - San Bernardino
As being a first generation to attend college in my family. I love my school! My school is very nice and beautiful campus. People in my campus are all so nice I haven't met a rude student nor professor on campus. The campus is very welcoming to new students and has a program called SOAR making new students come and register to classes, meet people and divide people by majors and they get to met older class men who are majoring in the same major and get to ask them questions about your major. Then after you get to stay over night in the dorms for a night and get to go to a really cool school carnival. Being in the university the professors have been really great and passionate about their subject teaching in class. They are also very approachable and helpful if a student is having trouble with the class. There are many activities to do at school such as coyote night which is a school activities having sports, laser tag and games to win prizes. Also there is coyote night which is a carnival with rides and musicians come and perform.
CSU San Bernardino gives you the chance to thrive in your career choice of your dreams. If it is unknown what you want to do, the professors and courses grasp you and inspire you to be better than you are today. You truly feel as if you belong to this school. The best choice you can make is becoming a Coyote, trust me you'll never regret. Go Yotes!
