  • This would be a good place to go to school to learn but relax on the weekends. its not much of a party school its probably great fit for you. 
  • I'm slightly biased about this campus, however, I would argue that the proximity to the rive is the best thing going. Opportunities for recreation are in abundance on this campus and surrounding areas...  read more »
  • I graduated from here in early 1974. I live about five miles away and ride my bike through the campus on a regular basis. Stay away Monday the Friday because of so many students. Weekends are best and...  read more »
  • Thought it was a terrible school when I went there...I finished my undergrad and got a master's somewhere else. Parking is terrible, tickets are frequent, professors/education is low quality, Lassen Hall (admin/records + financial aid) are a pain to deal with. Not really professional IMO and the instructors don't seem to care much about their students or prepare them for success. It's also tiring to see so many of the five star posters espousing illiterate crap like "Drugs", or "Best collage eva", "verv nice", and some posters who have yet to even attend the school. There are some substantive reviews that are positive, but many of these flippant five star reviews really make me question the quality of the education obtained here.
  • The ethnic studies department is racist and they teach racist propaganda. Terrible campus with people riding around on all kinds of wheeled devices. People are rude while the staff that teaches there doesn't give a damn about teaching you 2 sides instead it's one the same liberal ass backwards crap. Students are rude to each other and staff could careless about their jobs. Go somewhere else trust me the classes you need are never available especially if you are graduating doesn't matter. One of the worst CSU campuses in California.
  • I graduated from this school back in 2000. I transferred from SCC in Solano County. Graduated with a BA in Communications. Found this a very nice campus and a good education. Although, in hindsight, wish I'd went for a more demanding major. Overall A beautiful campus and some great professors. I would recommend, especially if your a Communications major.
  • Nice campus, enough places to eat, every once in a while they have food catering trucks! The campus is crowded at times but overall one is able to get a good college experience. The classes and professors are very informative as they should be.
  • Great Campus! The people and staff are really nice and its a hands on learning experience!
