Degree: Health Sciences
Graduation Year: 2017

California State University- East Bay is a commuter school that benefits some people. The people at this school are nice and their are some teachers that really care about the students and their education. However, when it comes to support on this campus, I feel that it is lacking. Some teachers do show support, but through my 4 years of coming to this school I have been told twice, one from a teacher and one from my major advisor, that I should change my major or choose a different career paths. I feel that They never took the time to see what I was struggling with and help/support me but looked at one class where I got a B- and thought I wasn't competitive enough for my career path. If you are looking for a school that supports the students I wouldn't recommend CSUEB.

Degree: Biological and Biomedical Sciences, Other
Graduation Year: 2016

Cal Poly well-prepared me for my Doctor of Pharmacy program. My involved professors were a fundamental part of my success as a student. On my very first day of college, I found myself immersed in labs as a biology major. Cal Poly's "learn by doing" philosophy gave me invaluable real-world experience that I will take with me in my Doctor of Pharmacy program.

Degree: Kinesiology and Exercise Science
Graduation Year: 2015

Cal state Fullerton is an excellent school for those seeking a financially affordable school. I highly recommend it to those who are applying as a business, nursing or athletic training major. Many majors at Cal State Fullerton is impacted, which makes it difficult to get classes, however, I highly recommend applying for the Finish in Four program, which will give you priority registration. I was able to graduate from Cal State Fullerton within 4 years. Overall, the school has upgraded many of its building over the years, especially the newly opened Titan Student Union. Keep in mind that this school is a commuter school, so there is a lack of the "college" feel. Overall, I highly recommend this school for those that want to not be in as much student loan debt.

Degree: Education
Graduation Year: 2011

I went to Cal Poly San Luis Obispo for my undergraduate degree in communications and went back to get my teaching credential. It was an incredible experience that I would highly recommend to anyone deciding on where to go to school. It was an excellent education that prepared me fully for my career in education.

Degree: Business Administration
Graduation Year: 2015

I chose Cal Poly because of the "learn by doing" philosophy, and the skills I developed during my time as a student have helped me be successful in Graduate School. The fast paced quarter system helped me hone my time management skills, and the hard and soft skills I learned on a variety of projects come in handy everyday.

Degree: Economics
Graduation Year: 2012

Cal Poly is located in a wonderful city with a great environment which fosters learning. The class materials are accessible and easy to understand, professors genuinely care about the success and well-being of their students, and the students are friendly and eager. My only complaint was the seeming disconnect from elective classes and major courses- elective classes are often taught at a level of rigor above where they should be considering their decreased relevance to selected majors.

Degree: Architectural Engineering
Graduation Year: 2018

Located close to the Pacific coastline, Cal Poly has offers great engineering degrees as well as great scenery four one's tenure there. The staff is very helpful and knowledgeable on the subjects they teach. As an architecture engineering student, this school is probably the best fit for me as well as the best decision I have made to date.

Degree: Food Science
Graduation Year: 2019

I love Cal Poly. The only thing about it is that it is very hard to get classes you need early on. A lot of the classes are too impacted and some people have a hard time getting the required units to be a full time student, but your career counselor can help you with that.

Degree: Information Systems
Graduation Year: 2013

At Cal Poly, San Luis Obispo you will truly "Learn By Doing". In the Orfalea College of Business, you will be required to complete a project for each course in the Business major, from developing a complete marketing plan in Marketing, to developing Access databases in Information Systems. Although not all the instructors are world class, you'll gain valuable real world experience and confidence in yourself to succeed in the workforce upon graduation.
