Students are able to connect to others on differnt levels so its great.

My school helps students who ever thought that there no way that they make it to college. Many of us did not do so well on our Sat scores and not have got accepted into the big university, but Northridge gave many of us a chance to prove that were not all about test performances but how bright you can be with other things. Also we are home to the National Center on Deafness.

Luis

California State University Northridge is one of the most diverse schools in the nation. This makes the environment of the campus feel like no other place. Everyone is well integrated with each other, and it is a place where race is not a filter of anyone’s reality. I have never had such an experienced with other cultures of the world and it is a place where racism, prejudism, and discrimination is deplenishing because of the integrating students that attend the campus.

this school is very diverse. This school is also very personal, even though this is a university i feel there is a sense of community. Some say that this is a commuter school but i have been there since i was a freshman and i love the university for allowing me to build strong relationships.

aracely

CSUN is centrally located in the valley. It was easily accessible because I did not own a car at the time. Also, I appreciated that many of the courses I took at Pierce College were transferrable to CSUN.

Jacleen

CSUN is huge, and is a diverse university. It has reputable programs in Journalism, Cinema/Film Studies, and Deaf Studies. In fact, CSUN is widely recognized for its Deaf Studies program. CSUN is located in a beautiful part of Los Angeles - the San Fernando Valley. The area has all the good aspects of city life without the hectic bustle. I chose CSUN because of its Journalism program, the school's size (I wanted a large school), and for its beautiful location.

Scott

This school has so many different clubs, organizations and other involvements services. Being a commuter school mainly, many students join a club to help them get and stay involved on campus and create a unity here at Cal State Northridge that is unique to other colleges/universities.

Chris

Besides Csun being affordable, the campus is safe and friendly. I've noticed a big difference between Csun and the rest of the school in California, and that would be that because the classrooms contain a smaller number of students, a better teacher/student relationship evolves. Professors at Csun are involved in research but they are even more involved in their students. They take the time to really enhance the learning experience and to keep the student motivated. I have yet to see professors in other colleges take initiative in student’s succession than the professors at Csun have.

A lot of people commute; CSUN is a commuter school. Now this can make things a tad less festive, but I have found to like it quite a bit because a lot of my friends live within a few miles of me. It allows us to get together over breaks a lot easier.

Something unique about my school compared to others is there is always something going on or something you can become involved in. There is never a dull day on campus. Whether its a protest , a club or organization holding an event, or a flee market in the middle of campus. there is always something that can be done or particapted in on campus. I think that sets my school apart and makes it unique.

Compared to other schools that i've been to, I feel more comfortable at CSUN. I grew up in Palmdale so I wanted an area that was simlar and Northridge feels almost like the same type of place. The main difference between the two cities is that there is more entertainment in Northridge and the weather is less severe. One thing I loved about CSUN is its location. I have family in LA and in Palmdale so for me the school is right between both, giving me a transportational advantage.

I visited many schools before making my decision about Cal State Northridge. Most of the other schools I visited were off by themselves and secluded or they were not very diverse. As soon as I got to Cal State Northridge just for the visit, I noticed the diversity. It felt comfortable. And it was also in and close to a large city.

I think that at CSUN the diversity and the fact that it is a comuter school makes it unique. There are so many different cultures and groups of people who attend CSUN.

The most unique part about my school is the fact that my major, Deaf Studies, is found here as one of the three most presitgious campuses in the country. This unique major has anchored my decision since it is a prime location in Southern California.

Joanna

It had my major. When I started college my major was Music Therapy. I have since changed my major to Recreation Therapy. However CSUN is still one of a few schools with either major. I did consider other schools with other music programs but liked the one here the best. Now that I'm no longer in music, I really enjoy the recreation department. The dorms here are also very different and much more spacious than other schools and I really like that.

The unique thing about this campus is that no matter how out of place you may feel that everyone belongs there is always something for everyone you just have to look around.

Diversity and the unique programs and majors they offer.

Brian

This campus is one of the most ethnically diversed campuses I have ever seen. As a supporter of equal opportunities for everyone, it is great to see a campus filled with people of various racial and cultural backgrounds. In addition, it is a delight to see people interacting with each other, with little to no racial tension at all. Furthermore, it is amazing to see people willing to learn about the different cultures that make up the campus of California Sate University, Northridge.

TINA

ALTHOUGH WE HAVE A HUGE POPULATION OF STUDENTS, I FIND THE SCHOOL TO BE VERY DIVERSE. ITS DIVERSITY MAKES IT A COMFORTABLE, RELAXING ENVIRONMENT TO STUDY IN AND MAKING FRIENDS AT THIS SCHOOL WAS FAIRLY EASY.

Janalyn

We have a very diverse student background. There is no judgement or discrimination and I feel comfortable expressing myself in the classroom.

Johnny

The location and the people of the school makes this school unique. Being in the Valley of Los Angeles, there is diversity unlike other places in Los Angeles that are somewhat designated a certain place (i.e: Koreatown, Chinatown, Olviera Street know for Hispanics, etc.) . Here you can make new friends of every walk of life, rich or poor, black or white, asian or latino, and even bi, gay, transgendered and its very accpeting!
