CSUSB is a great commuter college. It is easily accessible to all surroundings cities that are still too far to travel to L.A. All staff encountered have been friendly and helpful. There is plenty going on around campus. The gym is included in tuition and it amazing! However, the only downside to CSUSB is the surrounding area. There is no "college town" surrounding the school aside. There is nothing cool to do or anywhere to hangout off campus. This school is great if you're commuting, but if you're looking to live on campus and have the entire college experience I would further explore your options.

I had a great time at CSUSB! All campus facilities are within walking distance and there is a family-like vibe among students and faculty, especially within specific departments. I dislike, however, that the surrounding neighborhood doesn't feel especially safe and that food choices are somewhat limited.
I am currently enrolled in California State University San Bernardino and I can honestly say it has exceeded my overall expectations. Despite the immediate negative view involving it's location, that would make most individuals hesitant, it is an excellent school. My experience with my fellow schoolmates have been positive and the professor's make their student's a priority. The staff of the overall school is great and care for the school as more of a family rather than just a community full of students. There are so many resources for any needs whether it be personal or academic. They are even adding more buildings to the school and reconstructing in order to establish more appearing looks for the campus. Throughout my past three years I have seen nothing but improvement.
The only negative aspects I believe should change would be our parking situations as we are limited to parking areas. Many students struggle at finding parking as some may not find any available spaces at all.
