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!
I really admired the staff and professors at this university, they all walked around with a smile on their face and always offered help - like the time I parked very far from my night class because there was no parking and a campus police officer gave me a ride to my car, that made me feel very safe.
I would like to see more student involvement in campaigns and clubs, the method of communicating to students is poor, they need to make things a bit more exciting and invite everyone to join.
The diversity of this university is amazing, its like having multiple traditions/cultures all in one campus and the best thing we all have in common is the ability to succeed and obtain knowledge together.
