California State University - Fullerton Reviews

60 reviews
My experience so far has been short, but it has been going well so far. The school administrators have kept us in the know so far and the teachers are very knowledgeable! I am taking an online masters program which I can see being very difficult to keep organized and keep the students happy but the teachers are communicating with us constantly. The school sets the students up with their own email address and student center online. There is an online platform that the students and teachers access to post lectures, submit homework assignments, and a place where the students can ask their peers questions. The staff administration for the most part gets back to you. Beyond that the lectures and homework are challenging but fair. I'm taking two classes and the teachers seem to be in sync with each other to allow the students enough time to get everything done. There is even a remote proctoring program that they use during the pandemic which is pretty impressive.

The professors are all very engaging and care about their students. I took interesting courses that involved genetics, pathogens, and biodiversity. I always felt like the professors were approachable and genuinely nice!
The academics definitely put me back in the water, I did not remember a lot of the mathematics that were presented in my classes. I felt challenged. The teachers and students are all very helpful though, if you have questions to ask, they will be there to help you out!
