In my opinion, the school has been given a bad name which I don't completely understand. I can see that it isn't on the level of the UCs and probably not most Cal states, but I primarily see it as a funding issue. The buildings are old, and the campus is small compared to other schools. However, I don't see that being the school's fault. Every teacher I have met so far really seemed to want and help every student as much as possible, which I was surprised to see. There is this notion that professors don't care about students and are there just to teach the class but not here. They want you to succeed, and many of them like being here because this is one of the only schools where you can have an appropriate academic relationship with the students. Everyone is down to earth and knows about struggle, so we all have a lot of stories and diversity. It's a beautiful thing. I only gave it such a low score because it isn't funded well.
Great University. Lots of opportunities to learn and grow. Have various clubs and organizations. Encourages co-curricular activities. Very helpful and supportive faculty and student body. Keeps students' interests in mind. Motivates to do better both Academically and Professionally.
It’s an ok school. Not much school pride. Food diversity is not the greatest. The Starbucks on campus is too packed all the time. Professors always complain about our school.
Overall, I really enjoy going here the tuition is affordable and the professors are excellent.

I would say what I have said to my nieces and nephews. Make sure you have and retain good study habits. Also, unless there are circumstances beyond your control, do NOT wait as long as I did to begin your college experience. It is difficult to get back into the swing of things when you take too long of a break.
There is a poor school spirit and lack of communication between students and staff.
My classmates are diverse and a mixture of very driven and mediocre.
I wish I hard learned about my financial aid status, that way I could have applied to more school scholarships, or grants.

There are reliable public transportations which takes students directly to the school and the cost is very affordable. There are many clubs and organizations to join, some include speicific interests. Many clubs and organizations let all majors join, so there is no exluding anyone. Professors are willing to help students who reach out to them.

The staff and employees, as well as the members of CSULA are all very friendly, and they make it very easy to access resources that you may need in your current goal in attending college.
A person who is not afraid of diversity. Being in Southern California, it is one of the most diverse schools in the world.
The most frustrating this is budget cuts, but that goes for a lot of cal state schools. It's unfortunate, because sometimes you can't get the classes you need or essential classes are cancelled for a quarter, which could make the process of getting through school a lot longer than you expected. Also, Administration is not too great, it's unbelievable how easy it is for them to lose your transcripts if your a transfer student.
CSULA is best known for being ethnically diverse and a commuting university.
I am a freshman student at Cal State LA and that class I have enjoyed being in was my communication class. In my communication class I got to meet all lot of people. I was afraid of taking this class because it was a speak class and I'm afraid of talking in front of a class. My teacher was the greatest and nicest person that made me feel comfortable to talk in front of a class.
Cal Sate LA is a very boring school if you don't talk to anyone. Everyone is usually on their phones or maybe just spacing out to the world or their might be lost. So far all the teachers I've gotten have been great. I hate english and since I've been attending this school I actually like it now. I hated doing essays and the teachers I got changed my mind about writing essays. I'm not great at writing essays but at less I'm getting better from the teachers I've gotten. This school is not all bad is your out going with your classmates and teachers.
The stereotype people say is that Cal State LA has more women students on campus and I think this is true.
The popular student activities I've seen is studying. Everyone is always studying, doing homework, and just talking about school. One activities I've seen on campus was a group of students talking about how in coming students are coming into college confused and not knowing what to do. I stood there listening because I felt like that when I first got there, confused and lost. They also talked about how people look at peoples appearance and how they judge with out taking the time to know that person. This group of students made me think about a lot of things.
Of course but that doesn't mean we don't have talented people at our school. Most of us are first generation college students.
We're "CSU" students.
