Alumnus - Grad Year 1991

Detailed Ratings

I really enjoyed the faster pace of the quarter system. A more business-like atmosphere than the school I transferred from. It was just what I needed after a very social-minded freshman year. More of a quiet commuter school. I stay in the on-campus apartments which worked out well. Much better than the wild dorm scene I had transferred from. Plenty of social options and the beauty of the Bay Area when you left the campus.
