What is your overall opinion of this school?

I love living here. The beach is so close and is so so SO nice that all of the dorms are apartment style. Having a kitchen and a living room is amazing and I feel so fortunate to have it. I love the campus but walking up the hill from the Quad is a pain in my ass.

It is a very convenient and great school, it could use some improvement on the faculty and how much they help and understand he scheduling for students. The teachers really care about the students and about our success which makes it really easy to want to succeed.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

During campus tours and the application process, the school seemed to really care about its students. However, it wasn't until I completed a full semester at San Marcos that I realized the professors really do not care if you are passing their class. the majority of upperclassmen I met were fifth years and it is extremely hard to get the classes you want. The housing on campus is beautiful, I lived in the Quad and had my own room and loved it, however, the school itself was not my cup of tea.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Overall, I believe Cal State San Marcos is a great place to attend school. My only complaints would have to be regarding safety and the actual food choices available on and off campus nearby. The professors all seem to be heavily involved in the success of their students, and the campus is relatively new. There have been a few concerns since I started attending this school, but the police presence seems to be much higher and the campus overall seems safer

What is your overall opinion of this school?

It is a nice and beautiful school with many ways to get involved in the community and with each other. Parking can be a bit of a hassle, but most schools are like that. Plus there's an alternative transportation so we don't have to bother with on campus parking. The professors I've met are extremely nice and want you to succeed.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

In my opinion California State University San Marcos is a very diverse and has a lot of opportunities when it comes to the different organizations and different programs, but to put it bluntly this school is overrated. The campus on the outside looks as if it has just been built, but as soon as you step into a classroom much of the seating and floors appear faulty or broken. There is a lack of decent eating places both on and off campus, and the closest shopping center is twelve miles away. The on campus housing is nice so I have to give credit to where credit is deserved. The last problem this school has is the parking situation. The cost to park on campus is very exorbitant and you can never find a parking spot. CSUSM gets a lot of students every year, and I think the parking situation should be given a little bit more attention. Overall this school is not that bad when it comes to academics. Professors strive to help you and there are tons of resources on campus such as math, language, English, science tutoring at no cost to the students.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

It’s a safe environment for students, smaller classes which means more opportunities to talk to your professor and create good relationships with classes mates and professors! Lots of school spirit! Most students partake in school events and activities which creates a great environment and brings us close even if the school itself is big.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

As an incoming freshman at CSUSM, I was very nervous. After I had my orientation I soon discovered that, CSUSM is a very fun and friendly campus. The professors are very helpful. They even had a meet and greet with all the new incoming students for the College of Science and Mathematics. I had ice cream and got to meet the Biology faculty department.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

San Marcos is an ever growing campus that grows the more students join the school. San Marcos is the ideal campus for students who are solely dedicated to their studies and enjoy club activities instead of partying or sports activities. We have a club for any interest and our clubs only enhance our education and make us more aware and open minded people.
