"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!"

"It was fun and informative. Career wise, get a double major. Although employers like psychology degrees, you need something else to sublement it."

"Chico was an amazing experience & the business school is top notch. I was able to have small classes and participate in various extra-curriculars. I even got to study abroad. I would always suggest people visit the campus before making a decision because Chico is more than just what you hear."

"Chico State has an amazing campus. The community/town is awesome and the professors at Chico State really care about their students. The campus is beautiful with flowers, trees and a natural creek that runs throughout the campus. Great academic programs and sports teams."

"CSU Chico is beautiful campus, cute town, and full of history. Love the area and original locals; however, some of the newer transients and locals are less desirable (more gangs and violence than when my mom went in the 80s). Makes you want to go back in time, but overall I loved my professors and the classes I took."

"Chico State is a wonderful college, everything there is so close. When your hungry head to the bear and there are also several restaurants, thirsty for a drink, there's a lot of bars downtown. There's a 2 story gym right next to the parking lot which is right next to the main office which is on campus grounds. The professors are nice but still google and get some reviews before you take that professor if there is more than one professor for that class subject. They have a lot of clubs that you can join especially if your a business major. There are several places to study: the library, the cafeteria building, the gym and even the the outside lawn. I would only recommend this college if you don't mind the short distance of everything in one location."

"My college was a party school, it was easy to be distracted by the constant events that were going on. However, my school had really good programs for a few majors, like mine."

"I absolutely loved my college. Though many people get lost in the social aspect of college, especially in a well known drinking university, Chico State was the best experience of my life!"
