You're just a number here.BrightUndecided
You're just a number here. This is a typical state school where if you fall between the cracks nobody cares. I thought that I would get individual attention because the school is relatively small and so is my department, and of course the school never tires of telling you that bc your professors aren't focused on research that they'll be focused on teaching and on you, but this isn't the case at all. For one, they still need to publish if they want go up in tenure (though not as much as research universities) and two, most simply don't have the time or interest in you, they think you're dumb and don't respect you for going to chico state. A handful of my teachers were supportive and really wanted you to be successful, but only a handful. Unless you're coming to this school for something very specialized or some kind of unique top program, I don't suggest coming here. And if you're a minority, you will truly feel out of place.

Question
Overall, just not a good school.Quite BrightPolitical Science
Overall, just not a good school. I too witnessed cheating on exams in classes (more quiz's actually). The teachers do not want students challenging them in an intelligent way. Never have I seen a faculty, or school for that matter, that acts as if the student is the low-totem, "nothing." However, how quickly they forget, the student pays their paycheck! You know, if all 16,000students got together, we could make some great changes... for instance, no tenure for any instructor without a student committee's vote of approval. Thats how it works at Mendocino Community College (again, it's a community, 2yr school - and the students run it!~). If CSU Chico students would start to care about their own education, changes would occur. Dont wait for these instructors/faculty/chairpersons to get hit by the moral lightening rod... it'll never happen. WE, the STUDENTS, MUST DEMAND IT! Stop instructors racism (Im talking about white kids being treated badly because of this liberal crap that all whites are born 'entitled'). The most hated type by CSU Chico instructors: Tall, blonde, blue eyed, men. Believe it! If I could, Id go back in time & NEVER have applied to this school! Id go after UC Davis, or some southern CA UC school. My kids WILL NOT go to CSU Chico, that's for sure!
