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.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

CSUB is a great cheap alternative for a university experience. Compared to our community college, cal state shines and has many thriving students. This is a commuter school but you have many opportunities to get involved and when you do it becomes so much more.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Going into California State University Bakersfield, i underestimated the accessibility and amenities the campus would have. I went in thinking that I would be lost and, there would be little to no help for me. By far, I was wrong. Going in, all students are greeted, with more than enough resources to accommodate any situation yet, nothing to the point of they will pass you just to pass you. I find the use of Blackboard resourceful and, easily accessible. Overall, my time at CSUB has been time well spend and, truly am earning an education at a low tuition fee. If it were not for the wonderful staff and, fellow classmates at CSUB, I would surely have a much harder time going through my freshman year of college.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I just finished my first semester here, and it was definitely an adjustment. Some professors are focused on the teaching in the subject which is helpful; however, there were a few great professors that actually made sure that the students not only heard the lectures and such but also grasped the concept well and learned it fully. Overall, the academics is what is most important, and there should be engaged professors that only care about the end of the semester.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

The college is affordable and great for trying to get a degree. The campus and classes are small but the professors are very interactive with the students. Since the campus is small, the campus police are able to arrive at any emergency in seconds. CSUB offers many majors and has a variety of Greek life available.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

The California State University of Bakersfield is one of California's best universities for your dollar. The cost of living in the city of Bakersfield is incredibly low in comparison to other university towns. In addition, the cost of tuition on campus is also very affordable. As of 2017, the institution had approximately 9,000 students (undergrad & grad) enrolled, which allows smaller class sizes and accessibility to professors and other university faculty. The campus recently added new dining options which has given students a variety of meals to choose from. These include Starbucks, Panda Express, Whichwich, and more. Finally, there is an adequate representation of the students on behalf of their student government. There is a lot of activities (1-3 weekly) available through Campus Programming or the Office of Student Involvement. Do not expect a major student life, but for the size of the campus, there is always a good amount of events happening.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

CSUB is a multicultural environment where people get along and are focused on education, but also like to be involved to get to meet new people. The whole environment is friendly and safe, the security is always on top of what happens on campus and there is always multiple ways to contact someone for help if needed. People on campus have school spirit and want to make the college experience enjoyable for everyone.
