California State University - Stanislaus Reviews
I like the campus environment. It’s peaceful and serene. The library needs updating and housing goes fast. Certain majors do not require advising, so your on your own. Prerequisites for classes aren’t listed when registering for classes. Certain classes are offered only Fall or Spring and if those classes are full graduation can be delayed an entire year. Financial Aid is slow to process appeals. Be warned if you are a transfer with excess units!
I love the space between the buildings of each of the classes because it provides a lovely break from being trapped in a room all morning. I think the teachers provide an enthusiastic teaching environment, and it helps to transition the freshman from being in high school to a whole new environment: college. I love the shade provided on the campus, but I do think there should be more of it, especially with the heat and vigor the sun gives during the summer months of Turlock. Perhaps each graduating class could plant a tree to help promote saving the environment, and make a positive impact as they face the world outside of college! There could be a "forest of the future" to help encourage the students to graduate and to leave their mark on the Stanislaus campus.
Cal State Stanislaus is the HIDDEN GEM of the Cal State system! 20 to 1 teacher ratio, free tutoring, national sororities and fraternities, 50 majors including Business Management and Administration. Beautiful Campus, and the school administration really has its act together. We arrived, they were waiting for me, name on the board, took me under-wing immediately, made me feel at home and that I had arrived. Lots of leadership opportunities. Even a huge observatory on campus! Stanislaus is BIG value for your buck!
