Before I attended this 4 year university, I always heard that this school is a party school. I always said that I wouldn't go here because of the rumors I heard. Then a recruiter came to my high shool representing the school and telling us about their campus and programs. I became interested and visited the school and got a tour. It was nothing like what I heard as rumors. The school is known for their big events that tey have on campus, and their diversity.

Cal State Northridge is best known for its location in the San Fernando Valley, many people would say that the valley is a bad place to go to school because of the heat and its high temperatures during the summer; that doesnt not affect the student life here at CSUN.

I believe that the organization, clarity, and presentation of lectures are effective. I learn more from lectures and interacting with the teacher than reading the books. Although textbooks are vital, they do not guarantee or provide clear explanations or examples of the proposed ideas and subjects. The professors know how to deliver the material of the courses they are teaching.

Azadeh

My current school, California Lutheran University, is best known for preparing students for their future career. Because it is a private school, the number of students in each class is small. This allows students to receive personal attention from professors and often times the professors serve as mentors outside of the classroom. There is also a career center that is available to alumni as well as current students and it remains a free service beyond graduation. While most universities have similar services, CLU is famous for the personal attention given to students and this really helps their future careers.
