  • Perfect university (so far for me...) and great professors here!
  • Very nice campus. Its country-like surroundings offer a relaxing atmosphere. Have had positive learning experiences.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • 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.
