California State University-Chico Reviews
The business program at Chico is fantastic! The advisers there are wiling to help you at any time. I switched my major 3 times and needed to graduate within 5 years and they were able to help me past some barriers to get into the classes needed. The sales program there really helps you prepare for the real world. They could work on getting some of their marketing teachers to relate more to the students but I had a couple classes where the teachers were very approachable. I still refer back to this day to some of those classes and what I learned from them. The environment around Chico is the perfect little college town for the first time being on your own. Affordable places and nice people. I would 100% recommend going to Chico State for Marketing or anything business related or even exercise physiology (which was another major I tried out).
The Nursing Program at Chico State is second to none. The faculty become friends and mentors while you are in the program and colleagues after graduation. The class sized are small and you move through the program with the same "cohort" for five semesters; I promise the relationships you will gain are special. The curriculum is challenging by nature, but nursing is a very worthwhile, very rewarding career. Go for it!
The Anthropology program at CSU Chico is, to put it succinctly, incredible! The faculty are all excellent in their fields and most are very attentive and helpful to their students. In addition, the size of the classes is smaller than at a larger university such as a UC, which allows further contact between students and professors which can lead to great networking opportunities. The department has a museum, a forensic anthropology lab, an archaeology lab, an artifact conservation lab, a large northern california zooarchaeological collection, a stable isotope preparation lab, a visual anthropology lab and movie producing studio, all of which provide opportunities in the forms of volunteer positions and internships (sometimes paid!)for both undergraduates and graduates to gain experience in areas of anthropology they are interested in. After completing the program at CSU Chico, I received job offers in Cultural resource management and also had the necessary skills and experience to be offer a position in a graduate program in anthropology. I highly recommend the program at CSU Chico to anyone interested in pursuing a degree in Anthropology.
I believe Chico State University is An amazing University. It's beautiful as can be environmentally. They are very into sustainability and very green. They have amazing professors who truly care about your learning experience. Also they provide great help for those in need of it. They give you space to be on your own and give you resources in order to be successful. They are everything you would want in a college experience and will graduate from here happy as can be and a career lined up.
Chico State provided me with the skills and knowledge required to be successful in the working world. I had wonderful professors who helped guide me towards my career path and were always willing to assist me, whether it by specific to our studies, or advising me when it came to choosing grad schools. My major courses were challenging and were relevant to today's current research. The campus is beautiful and welcoming. There were always opportunities to network with other students and local businesses, along with opportunities to participate in the community. Although the town of Chico has had issues with crime over the past few years, as a student I never felt unsafe. I would highly recommend this school to any high school student looking for a solid education and the opportunity to connect with a diverse student population, enthusiastic professors and the community itself.
California State University of Chico is a very good school for my field of study. First , it offers an animation degree. Other school just have graphic communication degree which is vague. Secondly, some of the professors within this field knows how to do animation. A few professors had worked with some big animation projects such as Avatar and The Hobbit. Lastly, the animation professors is really helpful. They give out good feedback to improve the animation process. In addition they encourage students to visit them during office hours for help. When it come to animation, CSU Chico is a good choice from other schools.
Chico State has been one of the best things to ever happen to me. I have made some of my best friends here, and I hope these friendships will be life-long. I have learned an abundant amount of information that has helped me achieve my Bachelor's Degree, and that has taught me about myself and others, in a way that I may not have learned otherwise if I had not picked this major. I am truly thankful for all of my wonderful Psychology teachers who are passionate about the field, and who are always there to help a student if they need it, because they truly care. The campus is extremely diverse, and its beauty is seen all around as it is surrounded by trees, and has a creek running all throughout campus. Chico State has a reputation as a party school, but it truly is no longer as notorious as it once was. Chico State is so much more than its reputation though, it is a place where students are active in the community and volunteering is abundant among the students. Anyone would be welcome at Chico State, and I hope this school will change someones life as much as it has changed mine.
My time at Chico State was arguably the best time of my life. The campus is stunning, the students are friendly and fun, the faculty are invested in your future, and Chico is a great place to be.
Beautiful campus to inspire you to think freely. Whether it's the cute little creek, gorgeous library, or the burger place down the street, this campus will help you learn and grow. So many more activities to do thought this quaint town.
What did Chico State teach me? It taught me that college is a learning experience for not only education, but as well as personal growth. Don't worry if you go in not knowing what you are going to do. You may change your mind a million times, or you may just stick with what you go in thinking you will do. It's ok whatever way you choose. A degree in 4 years is great, but 5 or 6 is ok too. Remember to take full advantage of what college can offer you. Take classes, spend some time in the library, get a job on campus (who knows this may be a step for bigger and better things), join a club and definitely meet lots of people. The campus is beautiful and has so much to offer you. Take it all in!
