Overall Rating

Great diverse campus where the students, faculty and staff are all friendly. The campus is large, but easy to navigate. I highly recommend attending new student orientation so you can be introduced to a number of resources on campus and know where everything is located. Joining a club or organization will help tie you better to the campus life and further your success.


Student at This School - Grad Year 2014

Overall Rating

I really like the diversity in CSUN. Students are able to experience different cultures through their classmates and friends. The most memorable experience for me was when I become one of the interns that started a wellness program designed to help improve the lifestyle of CSUN faculty and staff. I love helping and this program helped me to do so. I recommend that all students to be involved because through this they will get to know people and this will make it easy for them to adjust in the college life. Also, it is a good way to network and eventually they'll see the benefits of networking when they start to look for jobs.
