100% of students gave California State University, Bakersfield 4 stars overall.
I signed up for this college because it was in the same district as the community college I graduated from. I most liked the professors in the psychology department that made it really exciting to come to class. They are very passionate about the courses they teach and use a wide array of technology in their presentations during class. The most memorable experiences that I have had are when the professors link what we are learning in class directly to real world, real time events. Another pleasant experience is when I went to the job center. The staff helped me develop a great resume and provided a long list of internship/applied experience programs the center is partners with.
