Overall this school is amazing, I love that its so close to home and that my major department is so known to every other universities. Criminal justice by far one of the best. I love that the criminal justice club has hands on training that will be for our betterment and knowledge. As well as that they often have speakers who come feed us with positive vibes that make us want to finish school faster.

Detailed Ratings

My academic program was rigorous. The professors were well known and respected in their fields. I was most interested in obtaining a good education so night life and sports were not important to me-- it didn't matter that they didn't have sports teams. CSULA is located where the Long Beach and Santa Monica freeways intersect so commuting in and out was great. The facilities were good--large,well stocked library, good clinical practice spaces. I obtained both my Master's and Bachelor's degrees at CSULA. Living in L.A , there were lots of choices for higher education in the program of speech and language pathology but CSULA did an excellent job of preparing me for real world expectations.
