What is your overall opinion of this school?

I thoroughly enjoyed my four years of undergraduate study at CSUB, and am currently working towards my master’s. Being that it is a smaller CSU, students can really connect with professors and classmates. The school continuously looks for opportunities to improve its campus and the student experience. Recently, by popular demand, they added a Starbucks and are now looking into remodeling multiple parking lots. They also, within the past few years, built a brand-new student housing complex for those living on campus. You can really see your tuition being put to good use. There are also many resources available to students, such as tutoring centers that offer free printing and computer labs to finish up those last-minute assignments. The campus and facilities are also kept very clean. The campus is also decently close to many shopping plazas and restaurants to pass time between classes. CSUB also offers fun activities for students, like taking day trips to Magic Mountain or going snowboarding during the winter. Their library is also open past midnight during critical times, like finals. Being that I am a Psychology major, it is important to know that Psychology is one of CSUB’s largest departments. It may be difficult to secure classes if you are not punctual about signing up for classes on time. Unfortunately, there have been times when I was not able to sign up for certain Psychology classes even during my scheduled sign up period. Classes can be tight so make sure to arrive to your classes on time, if not earlier. Otherwise, I am having a pretty great time at CSUB and would recommend it!

What is your overall opinion of this school?

My overall opinion of California State University Bakersfield is decent. There are a few fun things to do in the city, but since I do not have reliable transportation, I am limited to where I could go such as the mall, arcades, or amusement parks. The forecast usually follows the season so there is not much surprises for the weather. For example, when it is winter, it is really cold and when it is summer, it is really hot. The school is a small campus, so it is not as impacted (yet), but there are limited resources provided. For example, there are not enough tutors for a specific subject, there are not a lot of food choices on campus to use my meal plan and there is little to no entertainment events that the campus hosts. Overall, the campus is decent as far as a clean environment (no drugs and smoking) and friendly faces who love to socialize.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

This is a great school to invest your academic journey into. The city of Bakersfield is quiet and housing is also affordable for students. If students choose to live on campus, there are dorms on the East side which looks nice and lean. Your professors care about your success .

What is your overall opinion of this school?

CSUB is a growing university that is still expanding in opportunities. I appreciate the efforts that the staff and students take in education and activity involvement for everyone. The campus is a good size, most of the professors maintain a professional, clear-spoken stance on the topics they teach, and there are lots of outside-the-classroom opportunities for students who need extra help or tutoring. The campus hold weekly events which are always posted for the students. All anyone needs to do to participate is to go to these events which can also be informative of campus life. The safety and integrity of students here at CSUB is held in high regard. This university encourages all students to try our best to complete college, get a degree, and experience life.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

CSUB is a good school if you are a student who likes a smaller campus. Classroom sizes are the perfect size. Teachers are accessible and the buildings are easy to find. I went to a UC for one quarter and it was really confusing so moving to CSUB was the best thing I did.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I love it! I’m always safe, everyone is so friendly and the staff has never been rude to me. If I ever have questions I can call one of the numbers provided on the csub website and they always have an answer for me. The only complaint I have about CSUB is the expenses.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

My overall opinion is good. I am part of the Honors program, and I get alot of support. The Business program as CSUB is very good due to the high accreditation it has which is the same at some other public 4 year out of state schools as I came to find out upon further research.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

CSUB is overall a pretty good school there is always activity’s and events taking place on or around campus and they’re always encouraging students to get involved most of them do but there are a few who just want to get to class and leave. CSUB is a nice campus pretty big and spacious and people are kind enough to help you if you get lost and need guidance or to make friends, CSUB’s whole demeanor is astonishing and warming to be in.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Overall, it is a good school. The university was established in 1965, so it is fairly young in comparison to other schools. It is also very affordable, in or out of state. You can get a good education there, and graduate without being in tons of debt from school loans. I wouldn't recommend the school to someone who likes to watch college football, because there isn't a football team. However, there is a really good men's basketball team, so watching their games is the equivalent of watching the big football game at another school. The school isn't in a major athletic conference as of right now, but they will be moving to the Big West in 2020, which is bigger than the Western Athletic Conference (WAC) they are currently in. There are also plans to expand the campus and improve the facilities, so the school has a bright future ahead. The class sizes are small, and teachers always make themselves available during office hours, which I can appreciate. Living on campus is nice and convenient, but the food in the cafe isn't all that good. There are two other places to eat on campus and there is also a Starbucks, but in general there aren't a lot of options when it comes to eating. However, I will say it has gotten better, because my freshman year all they had was the cafe, a Peete's coffee shop, and a little restaurant called Rowdy's. The good thing about this school is that they are always looking to improve and make life easier for the students. They (as in the student government, the ASI executive board, and campus programming) listen to our wants and needs, and do their best to accommodate us.
