Degree: Sociology
Graduation Year: 2016

CSUB is a fine institution with excellent professors and reasonable standards. My professors were very knowledgeable and available to assist in any way. The class sizes were mostly small, I only had one or two classes that were over 50 students. The only criticism I have is that the professors are in charge of the advising and sometimes it is difficult to know which classes you need to register for. I was able to connect with a transfer adviser and he helped me to make sure I was on track.

Degree: Psychology, General
Graduation Year: 2017

I thoroughly enjoyed my four years at CSUB. Being that it is a smaller CSU, students are able to really connect with professors and classmates. The school continuously looks for opportunities to improve their campus and the student experience. Recently, by popular demand, they added a Starbucks and are now looking into remodeling multiple parking lots. They also, within the past few years, built a brand new student housing complex for those living on campus. You can really see your tuition being put to good use. There are also many resources available to students such as tutoring centers that offer free printing and computer labs to finish up those last minute assignments. The campus and facilities are also kept very clean. The campus is also decently close to many shopping plazas and restaurants to pass time between classes. CSUB also offers fun activities for students like taking day trips to Magic Mountain or going snowboarding during the winter. Their library is also open past midnight during critical times, such as finals. Being that I was a Psychology major, it is important to know that Psychology is one of CSUBs largest departments. It may be difficult to secure classes if you are not punctual about signing up for classes on time. Unfortunately, there have been times when I was not able to sign up for certain Psychology classes even during my scheduled sign up period. Classes can be tight so make sure to arrive to your classes on time, if not earlier. Otherwise I had a pretty great time at CSUB and would recommend it!

Degree: Natural Resources and Conservation, Other
Graduation Year: 2013

I attended CSUB fully online. The courses were challenging. The advisers and teachers were fantastic and available for advice and detailed instruction. At first, I did not think an online education would be worth it. I was very wrong. The classes included students from all over the world. In my classes, they ranged in age from 18 to 75. They were able to provide wisdom and real world experience.

Degree: Child Development
Graduation Year: 2009

I had a wonderful experience at CSUB. I learned all the necessary skills to help equip and prepare me for my future career. All the classes were available to me when I needed them as well. The professors were all great and I really learned a lot from each of them.

Degree: Ceramic Sciences and Engineering
Graduation Year: 2017

Fantastic and reliable college that helps you get your Engineering Sciences degree quick and easy! The class sizes are small which is a great benefit to any and all future engineers as it helps focus the curriculum on the students rather than a set schedule as other college professors fall into. Many of the professors are understanding of their student's situations and dilemmas and will seek to help in any way that they can, within reason of course. The courses are still tough and unforgivable, as is all engineering courses, but you can at least have a chance of surviving, here at CSUB.

Degree: Ceramic Sciences and Engineering
Graduation Year: 2018

This is a very small engineering program, which is great because it gives students the opportunity to really get to know their professors. There are a lot of clubs to get involved in. There is also a great opportunity for research. The engineering program is based off a mechanical engineering program and offers an emphasis in either management, petroleum, or agriculture.

Degree: Communications (Public Relations)
Graduation Year: 2012

CSUB was a great choice for achieving a solid degree without having to acquire large amounts of student loan debt! I had a great experience going to school at the extension campus! I would definitely recommend going there to get a degree that could be applied to a vast amount of career opportunities!

Degree: Communication and Media Studies, Other
Graduation Year: 2008

I loved the professors and the small extension campus of the Antelope Valley. The counselors helped me a lot as well. I would recommend California State University Bakersfield to anyone looking for an affordable college degree. The options for study were wide as well.

Degree: Criminal Justice
Graduation Year: 2017

The program was great over all but it lacked on the fact that there wasnt much help when it came to job search. Many of my class mates are still looking for jobs and most of use haven't found one. The courses taken at California state university Bakersfield were challenging

Degree: Biology
Graduation Year: 2011

I personally think its a good campus for anyone who wants to pursue their undergraderate education. The class sizes are fairly small depending on the class but most of the teachers I've had classes with are great. They are always willing to help. Also, the campus is pretty safe.
