What is your overall opinion of this school?

California State University-Bakersfield is overall a great looking campus filled with kind and knowledgeable people. It has a lot of great facilities that the students can access for educational and recreational purposes. It offers a lot of different educational opportunities such as guest speakers as well as a lot of on-campus employment opportunities. The professors are kind and many go out of their way to help students. Overall it is a college I would recommend attending.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Overall, CSUB is a great campus, in my opinion, class sizes are big but small enough for one on one help. Also, school spirit is great and almost everyone is a team player when it comes to athletics and programs/events happening on campus. Professors, advisors, and faculty are almost always at your service whenever needed and everyone on campus is always nice and helpful. CSUB became a second home to me where I made great friends and even greater memories, though there is not much to do out in Bakersfield, making great friends and exploring is always a great way to make time pass by and have a good time.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

There are several awesome professors at this college that want to see their students grow. Most of the professors are the best piece to this campus. The campus is small which has its pros and cons. Campus PD are cool. Good luck getting into classes if your major is accounting and you're a senior. Dorms are expensive. CSUB and Bakersfield leave a non-Bakersfieldian tittering at this tragedy. It is better than nothing. Graduate and get out!

What is your overall opinion of this school?

It’s a great campus. As a college freshman, they are willing to help us out and guide us. During the orientation they made sure we were treated right and any question we had was answered along with any doubt and decision about our degree. The counselor for each degree came in to help us with our schedule or gave us their phone number to make an appointment. Overall the campus is clean and smoke free.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I love CSUB so much. I'm a student athlete here, and the athlete community is unlike any other community I've been apart of. I know nearly every athlete by name. My team is my family, and I am really good friends with lots of athletes from other teams. The dorms are a little pricey, but I had a great experience in the dorms. The security system is very strong, and I always felt safe in the dorms and the areas around the dorms even at night. The sporting events are so much fun to attend! We compete in Division 1, so our sports teams are at the highest level. Almost all of my professors have been extremely strong instructors who are clearly passionate about their discipline. Anywhere you go, there will be the occasional professor that is hard to work with or is boring, and you will find a few of those at CSUB. It's nothing too discouraging, though. As for off-campus housing, there are so many options. There are two different apartment complexes that are walking distance from campus. Both have pools and provide quite spacious living areas for a reasonable price. If you choose to live in a house, rent is so cheap in Bakersfield, especially if you have multiple roommates. There are also lots of people in Bakersfield so there are always new homes on the market. There are communities all around campus to get involved in. There are tons of different clubs to be apart of, and there is always encouragement for students to start a club if they are passionate about a cause. If you're looking for a strong Greek life, do not come here lol. CSUB is great for so many things except for its Greek life. There is no Greek row, and the frats/sororities are very small and underdeveloped. Maybe in the years to come this side of the university will grow, but as of now the Greek life is near nonexistent. I wouldn't doubt that Greek life will grow, however, because CSUB has shown such huge signs of growth lately. There is always renovation going on to build bigger and better facilities, and we have tons of acreage around the campus that is just waiting to be built upon. We just finished a new Student Rec center with tons of new workout machines and workout classes going on. We also plan to totally renovate the student union and put in a campus pool and I think even a lazy river. Come be apart of all of the excitement here at CSUB :)

What is your overall opinion of this school?

When I decided to go to csub, I was really excited. The first week all of my classes seemed to be just what I expected (not to hard, but not to easy). I was thrilled. I would always give myself a pep talk. After my first semester ( passes all 12 units), I began having trouble with the staff not going all the way to help me resolve an issue I encountered. The story is very long, and one of the reasons I'm applying for this scholarship. I am a low income family and was dropped from all of my classes in the second semester because the school made an error with my financial aid, when they wanted me to repay the mistake they made, I no longer had the money. Now in order for me to return back to school I have to pay that back plus more. I don't work, because my husband is legally blind. I'm applying for scholarship to repay the school so that I can return back to school.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Been here for 4 years and it has that small school feel, which is nice. But sometimes it feels like a high school because you see the same faces around all the time. The city outside the campus is pretty dangerous so be catious. Other then that its cheap and you can get your classes.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

California state university-Bakersfield is an amazing place to send your child/student to. They offer so many extra curricular activities and teachers or teacher assistants are always at your call for any problem you have. The office workers are amazing people and will help you as soon as you walk in the door.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Overall CSUB is a pretty good school. It's a school people who are more focused can attend. While Greek life is still part of our campus, it is not the most prominent factor in school life. Our basketball games are always fun. The social life at CSUB mostly depends on what the student makes of it. I've met incredible people there. It's not a big party school and there are a lot of different stores and restaurants close to campus.
