What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

If you know what you want to do in your future then go for the school that is best for you education wise. No matter what the social life is up to you and what you make of it so dont worry about that. What should matter the most is your education because from there you will meet people just llike you and it will create many friendships and bonds that you may not get at other schools.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

Simply, I would tell parents to allow their child to choose the college that is best suited for them. Enabling them to do this gives them the opportunity to make an important decision for themselves that, essentially, affects the rest of their lives. When doing this, however, parents have to caution their children to not make a decision that is based soley on where their friends are going or where their parents went, because, as in any other situation, what is good for one person is not always good for another person. Going to college is an important process where most people tend to have the greatest experiences that impact their lives that develop them into the person they are to become.

What's unique about your campus?

The availability of clubs and activities is the best thing about the school I attend, because they allow any and everyone to participate in something.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

The best thing about CSUF is the people. They make it the school that it is. There are many students on campus, but there is always room for more. I feel that the more people explore CSF there more they will find reasons to get involved and make the campus even more enjoyable. I spend most of my time in the dorms. There are many oppurtunties to meet people there. If there was more housing on campus CSF will become less of a commuter school and become more a a tightly knit community. This will dramatically affect attitudes. School pride is always apparent in a select few individuals. When others hear that CSF made it to march madness tournament or the baseball team is doing well, people jump on the fan wagon and become spirited. School spirit is something that should be with students throughout their college career. There was a recent controversy on campus with the hanging of nooses. This was very offensive to African american students because of the symbolism invovled. There was a large gathering of students to reflect on the incident and messages were shared. I feel that this type of action will last longer in some but has been forgiven in others. It is unfortunate to experience such negative behvior in the 21st century. The relationships that I formed throughout college will last a life time.

Describe the students at your school.

I try not to limit myself with the people interact with. It is true that i am drawn to people with similarities though. I think there is such a great variety of studnets that no one would feel out of place. Most students wear comfortable clothes such as jeans and a t-shirt (usually CSUF titans) i find alot of people wearing Fullerton sweaters. Most student are from Orange County. I also find a significant proportion form nothern california. there are also alot of foreign studetns from the asian continent. the students i interact with do not talk about financial backgrounds.

Is the stereotype of students at your school accurate?

For the most part these stereotypes are true. After 3pm the campus is "empty." With the new Student Recreation Center there is an incentive for students to stay longer. There are other organizations on campus funded by ASI that students should explore.

What are the academics like at your school?

Professor get to know a majority of the students in their classes. With large lecture classes, it becomes hard for teachers to know everyone. This is where students need to take the initiative to get to know there professors. For me it is sometimes intimidating to get to know your professor but this should not deter students from stepping out of their shell. My favorite class is basketball class. after a long day in lecture about the natural sciences, it is a releif to run around andget some exercise. my least favorite class is history. students are constantly studying but it depends on the individual and their learning skills for the amount they spend studying. Class particiaption is common in the same individuals. i find that the same people are asking questions. I hear of some studnets having intellectual conversations and other are having pointless conversations. it all depends on their intentions. The biological department is very competitive. there are many smart students doing the best they can. I need to spend more time outside of class to get to know my professors better. They can also help me with any questions I may have. CSF is primarily geared toward learing the fundamentals then directed towards getting students a job. I know this is so in the NSM department because of the job fairs and research oppurtunities avaialbe.

What are the most popular student activities/groups?

there are alot of and gorwing sports clubs on campus. greek life is a big part of CSF life. there are many academic clubs such as biology, chemistry art and music clubs. many of them go by greek names. I also heard of hip hop congress. they play music weekly to help reduce stress and make walking to class enjoyable. I am envolved with many of the clubs stated above. When i find the time i enjoy learning with the students of the clubs. at the dorms students leave their doors closed. although robberies are uncommon, new locks were installed on every door to prevent such mishaps. Basketball and baseball are the most commone events where hundreds of spectators watch each game. at the dorms we have guest speakers frequently, weekly movies. I meet my closest friends from the dorms, in class, or playing recreational sports. Each year there is murder mystery, spring concert and intramurals. People part every weekend, usually thursday friday and saturday nights. last weekend i stayed home to study for a test. there are many things students can do beside drinking such as going to a movie, reading a book, playing video games, attending sporting events, or having a potluck.

What is the stereotype of students at your school?

CSUF is known as a commuter school. Students go to class (most of the time) and go directly home. Many people do not take the time to find out how to get invovled with the great organizations on campus.
