Alumnus - Grad Year 2007

College Life Rating

The social atmosphere is unbelievable. So friendly, everyone has a "Chico smile" on their face at all times. There is a sense of pride when you go to Chico State, and that shows in all the students. There are soo many different clubs and activities to get involved in. All of which are made very clear and present when walking on campus. I always felt safe on campus and honestly had the best four years of my life there.

Alumnus - Grad Year 1994

College Life Rating

It's no secret that Chico has a great party atmosphere, typical of most college towns. When I was there, the downtown and campus were very integrated, so there was a lot of energy at all times. Lots of great cafes, restaurants, bars, live music, etc.. Chico is a great walking and biking town; you can walk or pedal anywhere you need to go and don't need a car. Campus is beautiful- nice brick buildings and a creek runing through campus. It's easy to navigate and get around and I always felt safe.
