Degree: Criminology
Graduation Year: 2012

CSUN did not prepare students with what we can really do with out degrees once we graduated. It was a hit or miss with professors. Some were great but those were directly related to the Sociology part of the degree. The Criminology classes that were required were half asked to say the least. Some professors would show up to class when they wanted to or cancel class constantly. I had one professor who had us watch only videos in class then write on one page what it was about. The worst part about it wasn't that I did not learn anything, but it was not even related to the class. I would say I had one or two professors that actually seemed to care about teaching their students. I tried changing my major due to the lack in education that I felt I was receiving, however they would not allow it due to the fact I did not have too much left before graduating. Now I am stuck with paying a loan for an education I am dissatisfied with.

Degree: Biology
Graduation Year: 2011

If you want to go to a school that has professors which teaching is their focus and not their own research , apply to California State University, Northridge (CSUN). In comparison to more prestigious institutions in California such as in the University of California school system, professors are burdened by the pressures of producing research or grants from their respected institutions. Yes, this pressure does occur in the California State University system but much less. Overall, my education at CSUN has propelled me to gain an acceptance to UCSF School of Dentistry and I am grateful to CSUN.

Degree: Psychology
Graduation Year: 2011

CSUN is a great school with so many undergraduate and graduate programs. Professors were of great help and they relate to you, they are with you all the way. As a student you need to seek help and you will get it, they have all the resources. I spent four years working on my bachelors' degree and I have a double major. There are ways where you can work it out to graduate in four years with a minor or a second degree. Overall, I love CSUN, is a wonderful school.

California State University Northridge is an outstanding school, it challenged me in ways I would have never thought and educated me throughout my time there to be a well rounded individual. Attending this university prepared me for my future ahead to pursue optometry.

Degree: African-American/Black Studies
Graduation Year: 2015

California State University-Northridge, African-American/Black Studies program is one of the best in California. The course work, the professors, and the diversity of the students that attend and take these courses are challenged and ready for the real world. This program talks about many levels and facets of all races and cultures giving you a broad understanding of history, Black Literature, Writing, and the depths of the culture.

Degree: Child Development
Graduation Year: 2015

CSUN's CADV program is one of the best in the nation. The teachers teach at other big name universities as well as work directly in the field so they are extremely knowledgeable. As a full time working adult it can be hard to get the classes you need at the times that you're available. What I liked most here is the flexibility offered with night classes and online courses. There are a lot of resources for students to get the help that's needed to be successful, including computer labs, an oasis center, guidance counseling, etc.

Degree: Deaf Studies
Graduation Year: 2012

CSUN was an amazing place for me to get my undergraduate degree. Surrounded by diversity on a supportive and inclusive campus allowed me to embrace cultural differences and recognize my role in creating equity in society. Working in Student Housing was a life changing experience that inspired me to work with high school students as a College and Career Prep Specialist. As a Deaf Studies major, I was able to fully immerse myself in Deaf Culture and learn ASL both in and out of the classroom. I've been teach ASL part time at local community colleges for the past three years.

Degree: Communication, General
Graduation Year: 2017

I'm currently in my last semester at CSUN working towards my bachelor's degree with a Communication major and History minor. I've been absolutely thankful and overwhelmed with the positivity, opportunities and overall education CSUN's programs and its instructors have offered me. My next step following my academic career will be following through with their credential program to become a high school teacher by its end. Since I was young I've known this is the exact path I wanted to myself on and after years of study I'm finally here. CSUN has granted me the tools, motivation and information to follow and establish my dream.

Degree: Kinesiology and Exercise Science
Graduation Year: 2016

California State University, Northridge has prepared me for the Doctorate of Physical Therapy program I recently got accepted into. CSUN was an environment that shaped my student experience into a path that allowed me to grow as a researcher, educator, and future clinician as I made the transition from student to graduate student. I had professors who acted as mentors, I had research opportunities as I interned in the laboratories, and I had a well-structured curriculum in each class that made up the foundation of my future Physical Therapy career.

Degree: Biochemistry
Graduation Year: 2016

Most of the teachers involved in the sciences here are excellent teachers. Some times it is about finding the right teacher for the way you learn. The program requires a lot of dedication and hard work. The expectations of performance are high for all students. It is a very competitive field. To feel properly prepared for the outside world and jobs in this field, getting involved in research is very important. I recommend joining two research groups if possible. The real world jobs expect you to know your information and the real life application of it in a lab. The teachers are very helpful well asking them for help or advice.
