What is your overall opinion of this school?

This is a school where they take an individual and mold them to become their best selves and help them identify with who they are as an individual. I love this school because we are such a tight knit community where every group on campus is a family.

Love the school. It gives great resources and opportunities for their students. Great campus and great professors! Join clubs to get the most college experience ever. I haven't had the chance to actually live in the dorms but I have entered inside and looked pretty decent. If you have the opportunity to live on campus you should. Take advantage of the resources.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I think this college is great. The campus has a very comfortable feel. There was some frustration when classes would be so difficult to get into because so many students needed them for prerequisites. However, I loved my experience here. I will probably be coming back for my Masters soon!

What is your overall opinion of this school?

California State University San Marcos is a beautiful campus with lots of stairs. The people and the environment are amazing. The housing is incredible and extremely inclusive. There is a near by shopping center that students can walk to for some lunch or maybe to get some groceries. Anything you could possibly imagine is extremely accessible.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Very nice and warm. I like the environment. I'm a minimalist so the school fits perfect for me. The crowd isn't so much that people are cramped up that one may feel uncomfortable and unsafe. Easy to breathe in, good programs and food. Welcoming and has helping hands.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Where do I begin? Cal State is NOT for a person who actually wants an education. The library is ALWAYS loud and overcrowded (even on weekends). I went there for three years before I had to transfer. There is no academic integrity. Very few students have any intellectual thought processes of their own. All they know how to do is regurgitate political ideas or scientific experiments that their professor told them about. One time I had a student tell me that cellulose was the major energy source for the brain! Like WTF? How stupid can you be? On a side note, the campus itself will not be FULLY developed till 2030 (as it says on their campus master plan https://www.csusm.edu/pdc/campus-master-plan/index.html). Unless you are planning to go here in the LATE 2020's I would suggest you do not transfer or apply here.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

The thing that drew me to CSUSM was the small class sizes and teacher-student ratios. A professor is never unwilling to help a student in need, and will give each person a fair chance for success. In my personal experience, I have had great relationships with professors and fellow students. This has really enhanced my college experience, both academically and personally.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

The campus is very nice and conveniently located with nice views of San Marcos and the hills surrounding it making for a nice place to hangout and study. I have been satisfied with the courses offered and very satisfied with the professors I have had. The school provides everything I have needed. I graduate in the fall and I have to admit that I will miss it.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Overall I really enjoy attending CSUSM. Most of the professor are amazing and the teach so much. However there are a few professors that do not add anything to the class or leave you more confused that when you entered. Student life is wonderful if you know how to look for event, with a really friendly campus.
