The third reason why is because at California State University Northridge you use a practical apporach to learning in classes. The fourth and final reason why is because the campus has a really great library, which is available to everyone.
CSUN has a lot of opportunities for students in a variety of fields, interests, and departments. Arts, sports, academics, creative outlets, mental health services, and so much more are readily available to students. The campus is very safe to me, there are always security and police patrolling the area, and emergency services are available almost everywhere on the campus. It's a lovely school with lovely opportunities, if you're ready to take advantage of them!
I like my school. It may not be the best school compared to the others in the area but that doesn't bother me. We have great professors and faculty that make the experience worthwhile. It's up to each student individually to make the most of the social aspects.
I enjoy California State University-Northridge. It is a pretty big campus, but the facilities are always nicely kept and student life is great. I would like to note that campus food there is not always accessible, and they seem to end early and don't give students who have night classes a chance to eat there after class. Also, parking there can be challenging, and the prices to pay for parking there seem really high. Other than that, it is a pretty good university.

Go for some place that you will be happy.
My classmates tend to be funny, intelligent (for the most part), diverse, considerate, helpful, and goal oriented.
CSUN tries to push for eco-friendliness, has many events to promote social connection between fellow Matadors that may be new or want to meet new people, the campus itself is generally well kept and clean, and overall its administration and staff are helpful; however trying to get the desired schedule when signing up for a semester is not possible until one has many units under their belt so always make sure to make a second and third back up schedules.
there happens to be nothing about my school that might be bad, because everything is in good order, yet the only thing is as said earlier the lines that cause frustruation but that is basically it, other than that my school is in good standing!
Its a commuter school but when everyone is around its a great feel.
i dont know
The campus, the amazing professors and the state of the art equipment that our school has. The combination of these things provide us with the best education possible that will halp prepare us for our future.
I wish I would have know how quickly classes become closed and you dont have a chance to sign up for it.
I believe everyone should attend school, however without a healthy motivation, one will not get too far.
Anyone can attend CSUN-from highschool graduates to working adults that want to complete their education. I had classmates that turned down scholarships from other colleges/universities in order to attend CSUN. Why pay more for a great quality education, when you don't have to. In the end, it only matters what you do and how you apply the things you learned in school.
Some professors are rude, when you are trying to learn the whole college experience.
The Best University in the Valley.
All my professors know my name because I am active and sit in front of the class. There are many professors that know everyone's name in the class. My favorite class is my marketing class. My professor is very intelligent. He teaches at both CSUN and UCLA and has awesome marketing knowledge and experience. My least favorite is geology just because I am not a big science person. I have taken SO many interesting classes, but a really interesting one I took my freshman year was Music in Film. I learned a lot in my class that made me appreciate the work that goes into making a film. I love my major and my department is also very helpful with guiding their students. CSUN believes in getting job experience it is a requirement in my major that I have an internship. The internship at the school is so helpful! He helped me get my internship this summer at NBCUniversal.
The best thing about CSUN is the hands on learning experience that you get while attending school. CSUN's business school focuses on team work because that is how the business world is currently, which is very effective and useful. I would like there to be a stronger alumni network. CSUN is the perfect size! You get the University feel when you are walking around, I truly love it. I spend most of my time at the business school and Arbor Grill.
I haven't really heard any stereotypes about the school as a whole, but there are various things happening with various groups of people.
There is very awesome gym (they call it the SRC), and also the library is the place to go during school hours. The school is like a city, there are so many stuff that you will find your activity.
Great campus and their involvement in the community.
NO! There are so many things to do here, especially if you are part of the greek system. There are tons of students who always want to have a good time.
There are a lot of stereotypes about CSUN and CSUN students, and some of them may actually be true. As for precisely what, I can't recall any right now.
Oviatt Library!!!! By far the best choice, with 5 floors, one being underground( more for classes) but 4 floors made just for study, filled with every book,media,picture you need. Study tables, private study rooms for two or more with huge chalk boards or dry boards made perfectly for group studying or meetings. Its amazing, the service is great, if you forgot to bring your book, they have a reserved section that allows you to check out a book for a couple hours to get the work done. AMAZING.
