"California State University-Northridge was a campus full of endless opportunities. The campus was welcoming and the staff approachable. In my department, I was able to have a close engagement with classmates. The classroom size ranged from 30-150 students."

"During my time at California State University, Northridge I was able to really find a love for my field of study. The Kinesiology department is excellent and the professors are very knowledgeable. Although there were many great aspects of attending CSUN, I have to say that there were a few let downs. I personally found it difficult to meet with my adviser. They only allowed students to see them during their office hours, where you had to wait in line behind a number of other students. This made the meetings feel rushed, unorganized, and far from personal. I felt that I didn't receive the help and advice that would have made my college career excel. In addition to the lack of guidance, the staff tells you that if you want to go to graduate school for Physical therapy, that you should take the major "Kinesiology: Exercise Science." They say that this major will set you up for graduate school, but unfortunately, I found that far from the truth. Although I learned a lot about anatomy and physiology, the major did not provide nearly all of the classes necessary to apply for graduate school. This left me to take 5-10 classes after I graduated at a community college, which set me back a few years. Regardless of the lack of advising in my department, I found CSUN to be an excellent school! The campus was constantly active. There would be various events throughout the week that would make you want to stay on the grounds. For example, they would have a monthly farmers market, various vendors throughout the week, and activities during finals so that you could take a break from studying. They also have a newly built Student recreation center (gym) and what is known as the Oasis, which is a quiet area on campus filled with nap pods, meditation areas, zero gravity chairs and much more. CSUN is definitely improving and making the campus a one-stop-shop. I would highly recommend attending CSUN and partaking in some of the many student activities. As for the advising aspect, I believe that if you are forewarned, you can take your education into your own hands and find resources to help you succeed outside of your adviser! Good luck and enjoy your undergraduate experience!"

"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."
