Although I did not intend on going to CSUDH, I ended up finding myself liking it for my four years of education. The head of the computer science department seemed enthusiastic about new students coming in to check out the program. I met new people and I liked studying computer science there. Overall, I think CSUDH can offer many opportunities.

School staff is accessible however long waiting times to speak with counselors. Campus security always on site. School campus is segregated from school, does not seem to have much night life. Small clubs to join, I did not witness much school spirit.
