What is your overall opinion of this school?

Not only did I feel encouraged to be myself , but i strongly felt I was meant to be there . We all know what it’s like to be a new pet of a group and at first it was , But after a while of interaction with staff and faculty I felt accepted no matter what race , ethnicity, social standing I am apart of. Everyone was super friendly and just so understanding , they even gave me financial resources to live a comfortable life while living off campus .

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I absolutely love CSU Channel Islands. Ever since I went on a college tour when I was a senior in high school, I knew this was the school for me. It isn't too big or too small, and there are plenty of places inside and out to relax, study and socialize. The campus is very active with all students as well, always holding job fairs, club fairs, and art shows. The faculty care about everyone's needs, always trying to include everyone and anyone. Channel Islands has always been the perfect college for me even before I was officially enrolled.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I love Channel Islands! If you are looking for a smaller 4-year University that is not a big party school and is more focused on academics, Channel Islands is exactly what you're looking for! The class sizes are small, around 20-30 students or sometimes even less. Classes really encourage communication, open discussion, and respectful atmospheres. Most of my professors have been amazing, very friendly, and extreamly encouraging. The campus is also semi small and you get comfortable with it pretty easy, not to mention absolutely beautiful! You can also get to really know your classmates or people in your degree program very easy, as with the smaller school size there's more of a chance you'll bump into them again in another one of your classes. If your passion is for learning and academics, then this is the perfect school.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

The school is extremely beautiful and since the campus is small it is easy to get around classes. Most classes are small so you get more interaction with your teachers which is beneficial. The campus is in the middle of fields and there's not much of a college life on campus. You definitely need a car if you want to do anything since there is not anything on campus and you have to drive about 10 minutes to reach anything.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Overall I like the campus to student student ratio size of Cal State Channel Islands. So far I have been very lucky and received very good professors that are always available to discuss grades. I find it easier for me to learn in a smaller classroom environment due to the bond you are able to build with professors and my biggest class so far has been less than 100 students full. The campus housing is decent. Personally I liked the freshman dorms more than I like the sophomore dorms, although I like the responsibility and freeness that comes with the sophomore dorms. I only like the freshman dorms more because there is a large kitchen. There are always different activities going on, but the school does not do a very good job of making people aware of them, although recently I noticed they are putting in more effort. In conclusion I would recommend going to this school. The campus is beautiful and makes me feel at home 24/7.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I really enjoyed going to CSUCI. I transferred from a community college, so this was my big university experience, which included living on campus. The housing experience varies depending on your age; the Anacapa complex was pretty nice, but there's no air conditioning, and it does get hot in the summer. Once you're able to live in Town Center, it's a completely different story. These apartments are so nice, with lots of thoughtful details, WiFi specific to your apartment, and air conditioning, not to mention it's right above the shops and restaurants in Town Center. I can't speak to the freshman dorms, but I never really heard anything bad about them (and they were still building one of the dorms by the time I left, so I really can't offer an opinion). Class sizes were really great, and it was really easy to get in touch and work with professors. They really care about students succeeding and a lot of professors really encouraged us to take advantage of tutoring and study groups and whatever resources were available. When I was there, it was hard to find classes as a bio major because a lot of the sections overlapped, but it might be easier now. I will say that the STEM community was really tight-knit and everyone wanted to see each other succeed. If you pursue a STEM degree, take advantage of the tutoring services and everything you can at the STEM Center. I was able to find a job pretty easily, and my supervisors were incredibly supportive. All in all, I had a great experience at CI! (and none of this includes the ghost stories you'll hear, definitely be sure to ask about them!)

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I really love CSU Channel Islands. The campus is beautiful and the people are always nice. The weather is amazing and we are only around 10 minutes from the beach. Academically, the school does well and you can really tell the professors want the best for you. They are almost always available to help you when you need it. The food on campus is good and they have daily specials so you do not get bored. The campus puts on a lot of activities to make sure the students feel at home on campus. Overall, an amazing school with an amazing atmosphere.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Seems like a good school, has a lot of opportunities for students within and without the academic environment. Ensures a fun and academic college experience. There is a good working environment even outside the classroom, students don't see it as an obligation but as something they wish to continue and endure.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Overall, CSUCI is a great school where us students can get involved without feeling pressured or lonesome. Everyone is super friendly and willing to lend a helping hand, so it is never a nerve-wracking experience when setting foot on the campus. Most teachers go out of their way to help study outside of office hours which is an immense help with upcoming exams.
