This school is full the epitome of theNot so brightEngineering Department
This school is full the epitome of the "Good Ole Boy Network". So many things wrong about this place that makes me wonder why is it still open. Discrimination and Bias is very much prevalent.

Its CSU really wanting to be a military school were student are broken and verbally abused on the norm. There are a lot of instructors that have been here waaaay too long and attended the school when it was segregated. If you are a minority you will be treated like shit and everyone thinks you are a cheat. I have sat in class where students were clueless about the subjects and passed, simply because well you know... Its what this place does it. The diversity is none existent, so when you see the statistics about the average salary graduates make just think about how the school is ranked 340th in diversity and that gives you better perspective.

I really wish I could write how great this place is and how it screams California liberalism but naaah. This place is more conservative than the Tea Party.

Please educate yourself before attending this school its a money trap for students of color in which in the end you dont win.

If you really want to come here thereNot so brightBusiness - Management and Administration
If you really want to come here there are a few things the school doesn't tell you before getting here. During orientation week is when you truly realize what the next 4 years has in store for you. We'll start with uniforms you have to ware them all the time except for weekends and dinner on Fridays. You for got to shave and want to eat breakfast? Well too bad you won't get let in to mess beck they you have to go all the way up stairs back to your room and shave. Yeah it's a joke. If you like stairs then come because there are lots of stairs on this little campus that is most likely smaller then your high school. The commandants are mean and seems to me that they will do everything under their will to get you suspended from this school. You get demerits for tittle things like every Monday Wednesday and Friday you have to be in the quad for formation by 7:20 if your not their on late you get demerits. It only takes 75 demerits to get kicked out so don't mess up too much. And watch this is my least part of this school. Business and global students have to sit in a box for 4 hours. All other majors do watch on the ship for 8 hours. So yeah what a great collage experience
