CSUF is a fantastic university! I loved the environment both academically and physical aspect of the campus. CSUF has an amazing community! The program I was in was Liberal Studies. All the professors had great knowledge about the specific topics. The professors gave great resources outside of class to research more into a certain topic as well.
