"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."

  • Degree: Criminology
  • Graduation Year: 2012
"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."

"If you want to go to a school that has professors which teaching is their focus and not their own research , apply to California State University, Northridge (CSUN). In comparison to more prestigious institutions in California such as in the University of California school system, professors are burdened by the pressures of producing research or grants from their respected institutions. Yes, this pressure does occur in the California State University system but much less. Overall, my education at CSUN has propelled me to gain an acceptance to UCSF School of Dentistry and I am grateful to CSUN."

"CSUN is a great school with so many undergraduate and graduate programs. Professors were of great help and they relate to you, they are with you all the way. As a student you need to seek help and you will get it, they have all the resources. I spent four years working on my bachelors' degree and I have a double major. There are ways where you can work it out to graduate in four years with a minor or a second degree. Overall, I love CSUN, is a wonderful school."

"California State University Northridge is an outstanding school, it challenged me in ways I would have never thought and educated me throughout my time there to be a well rounded individual. The professors are extremely helpful; they place great importance on student education. Attending this university prepared me for my future ahead to pursue optometry."

"California State University-Northridge, African-American/Black Studies program is one of the best in California. The course work, the professors, and the diversity of the students that attend and take these courses are challenged and ready for the real world. This program talks about many levels and facets of all races and cultures giving you a broad understanding of history, Black Literature, Writing, and the depths of the culture."

"CSUN's CADV program is one of the best in the nation. The teachers teach at other big name universities as well as work directly in the field so they are extremely knowledgeable. As a full time working adult it can be hard to get the classes you need at the times that you're available. What I liked most here is the flexibility offered with night classes and online courses. There are a lot of resources for students to get the help that's needed to be successful, including computer labs, an oasis center, guidance counseling, etc."
