College Life Rating

The location is in the San Fernando Valley, which is only a short car ride away from downtown Los Angeles, Hollywood, and beaches. There are a number of eateries on campus and the businesses surrounding the campus are plentiful. Campus housing is constantly expanding and improving. There are multiple opportunities to get involved on campus, with various events happening throughout the year and student clubs/organizations that you can join. Using CSUN's online page "MataSync" I am always able to find out what events are happening on campus. I have yet to attend a sporting event and couldn't tell you where to go to find a schedule of games, but know of a few people who like our basketball team. While there doesn't seem to be much crime, there is a large police presence on campus, so you feel a little more safe. I live off campus so I cannot speak to evening or weekend activities on or around campus.

Students here in CSUNare friendly. In our department, we encourage everyone to participate and get involved. I am part of Kinesiology Majors Club and my job is to inform the students of different opportunities and help them get involved. We encourage them to not wait for opportunities and instead make them.
