Student & Graduate Reviews (38)
If you are looking to connect with the business field based in Los Angeles, California State University is a great place to start your journey! Finding great contacts in the industry as well as a great foundation of knowledge was just the right step to start my marketing career. I can not recomend more going with CSU Northridge. Go Matadors!
Good school with good prices. I Like all the professors. Everyone was very professional and had positive attitude. I am currently considering going back to school and continuing my education with Masters Degree. I also loved the campus and the tuition prices are very good for California.
I have always been fascinated with Life Sciences throughout my student years in CSUN once I have come to realize that no other subject sparks my interest to learn more about it. I wanted to know how living organisms function and what they consist of. A cell, building block of life is where it all starts. It is such an exciting field of study and research. At that point in my life I have made the decision that I would like to be a part of it. Biology of cancer and biology of viruses classes in particular that I took as an undergrad helped me understand the importance of drug discovery and Biotechnology as a whole. Finding the cure for cancer and infectious diseases is just one of areas where Biotechnology comes into play but to me it is the most intriguing one because there are still a lot of black areas to uncover and critical scientific breakthroughs will have been reached in the near future. My first stepping stone was year 2008 when I received my Bachelors degree in Biology/minor in Chemistry from California State University Northridge. I believe CSUN Biology department has a good amount of instructors that are very knowledgeable in the subject and willing to help you in the learning process. CSUN name is very well known in California so getting a degree from there will definitely help you to get your foot in the door into the industry or decent grad/professional school in the future.
California State University, Northridge is a good school but specifically the College of Health & Human Development has an excellent Health Administration/Management program where there are Professors who teach the courses that have graduated from prestigious educational institutions. To name a few USC & UCLA who give back and come to teach for unrepresented groups. This program also provides executive guest lectures from health care industry players. Which is good for the students to to ask them questions that will professionally prepare them with the necessary tools to succeed in Health Administration! And also the program is very much involved in the American College of Healthcare Executives (ACHE) and other professional networks. I highly recommend this CSUN and would definitely attend there again.
From the first day that I entered the school I had a positive feeling about the school. The faculties were professional and knowledgeable . I really enjoyed my two years at CSUN. Staffs were friendly and helpful. I highly recommend this university for Business and Accounting majors.
I had a wonderful experience in Cal State Northridge, it was close to my house so i had a very easy commute. The professors are very knowledgeable in the field and they allow for many networking opportunities depending on the path we choose to take. Classes were very straightforward and professors are very upfront with what they expect from their students.
I received my bachelors in social welfare and social justice in 2017. I lived very close to campus so that was great parking was as expected crazy. However, my professors were all great and showed an interest in wanting to help students who were motivated. There was plenty of resources that would accommodate your needs such as having plenty of office hours for those who need more time with their professors, free printing, financial services and more. There are also a lot of campus activities and clubs/organizations you can join if you don't live close by or if you dorm. What I really enjoyed about the campus was the diversity and how much the school and peers were so welcoming to all new incoming students.
I had a great experience at Northridge. Having gone back to get my Bachelor's degree at 41, it was imperative that I find a school that accommodated an atypical college lifestyle. I had a full time job while in school and my focus was on furthering my education in order to fulfill my career goals. I felt like the professors and administration at Northridge make everything about the school experience adaptable to any stage of life.
Currently I'm attending CSUN and planing to graduate in the spring of 2020. The school is extremely helpful in finding a job and to connect you with alumni that hold executive positions at the company that students want to apply. Also, the networking opportunities thru social events, alumni meetups, and career center assist interested students in finding new jobs or change their careers.
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.
