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.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

California State University Bakersfield was not my first choice when picking a college. It wasn’t even in my top five. But because of financial issues I had no choice but to stay home and attend college close to home. I must say, however, that I’m very happy with the way things turned out. I’ve made so many new friends and even learned new things about myself. I was even able to snag a job on campus which has helped me in the long run. CSUB is a small campus which is actually one of the things I look for in a school. The professors are extremely helpful and are not only knowledgeable but very passionate in their field. There’s also some kind of activity going on every day. There are so many clubs to choose from and they all do such a wonderful job staying active within campus. It’s also nice to know that there’s help in every corner. If you’re having trouble with writing an essay or with homework, there’s a department just for that. If you’re having trouble accessing your FAFSA money, there are plenty of experienced staff at the financial aid office willing and ready to help you. The only downside is that there isn’t much to do off campus. Bakersfield isn’t exactly the hottest tourist attraction but if you look hard enough you can always keep busy. Overall, my first year at CSUB has been a memorable one. I’ve considered transferring out but I’ve already grown so attached and I’d be honored to graduate as a roadrunner.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

California state University of Bakersfield is a great University to attend. Faculty and Staff are a pleasure and are always nice and friendly. There is a lot of clubs or organizations that students can get involved in. Quite a handful of students are involved on campus to make sure the students voices are heard.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I think Cal. State University of Bakersfield is a great school. All the faculty are always helpful and supportive. The atmosphere is very laid back. It's a perfect campus because the student population is not to big or too small. This town is all about sports so there's always a good game going on for us to enjoy. I love here at CSUB.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

California State University-Bakersfield is a wonderful place for me to get my degree. I feel challenged in my classes there. I feel like I am learning everything and then some for my future career as a CPA. I have met some of the best people ever there, and I always feel safe there, even at night. I don't think I have met an unkind person in my time as a student there.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

CSUB is a good university academically. They have one of the best math tutoring centers in the state and have very good teachers. There are a bunch of restaurants on campus if you're ever hungry, but they're kind of overpriced. (2.70 for coffee? Come on.) The honors teachers are especially good and the library is nice. There's on campus housing which is supposedly great but I've never been there.

What do you consider the worst thing about your school? Why?

The food options because they do not have home cooked healthy meal options.There is alot of fast food and the same foods offered every day. They need some variety in their menus, something to look forward to and make you feel the love in their cooking. I am not vegetarian but i noticed that those options are also lacking.They should put in some effort in ensuring that they have options other than ,pasta and salad as well. I would advise that they take a hint from CSU Monterey Bay ...they are awesome!!!

What is your overall opinion of this school?

The overall campus is a great environment. The facility and students try their best to be involved and encourage others to do the same. The atmosphere everyday is different whether it's cool students events or food events the students are making new friends and memories. Academic wise there lists of classes are great but actually having the classes offered is another thing that I hope they fix soon.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

This is a great school. I can not lie and say this was my first choice for college but I am so glad I decided to go here. It is an amazing learning and socially engaging and safe environment. I was really nervous especially this being my first educational experience in the United States and I am very happy and impressed. Professors are very involved and helpful, people arefriendly and willing to help on campus. The are great facilities not just for learning but also for social interactions and mental, physical and emotional well being, such as the student recreation center, the counselling center and the Walter stern Library. The on campus housing is also very well set up and comfortable and safe.
