I am starting my second year at CSU Stanislaus and can go on for days discussing how great this campus is. There is unlimited resources and facilities. Everyone is so kind and my favorite day of the week is Warrior Wednesday! Everyone shows their school spirit by wearing red and as you walk through our main quad there’s so many booths with things like breakfast snacks for your walk to class, quick games to play for prizes, and arts and crafts opportunities. I can say this campus has made me who I am today and I am so proud to be a Stanislaus State Warrior.

I love my school and its commitment to education, growth and inclusiveness! Faculty truly puts their students first and ensures a productive safe learning environment.
The staff is very helpful. Everyone I have spoken with has really been helpful. I strongly recommend this college for their academics. I highly recommend this university to everyone because the staff and students are very welcoming to individuals who want to experience Stanislaus state. The campus is clean and easy to get around. The college is very affordable. They have great counselors that are very helpful to the students. The college has great programs for the students. Such as community service and internships. Also, the college provides tutors that can help students with their students. They have a sister school in Stockton, CA if students choose to go to that location if they want to stay close to home.
