if you are an incoming freshman, i highly suggest you live on campus for the best college experience. if you wana find a roommate that works well with you instead of letting it be random, you should check out "roomsurf . com" thats how i met my roommate and we've been best friends for the past 3 years :)
CSUF is an easy school to get into. It reminds me a lot of high school.You just don't get the true college experience here, all the events remind me of something I recall doing when I was 15.The teachers call themselves professors, but they aren't any more skilled than junior college instructors or high school teachers.If you can get into another college or university that is renowned and fun, you should go there instead because you will get to have a real college experience unlike CSUF. A lot of people don't think that the school has anything to be proud of and they say that CSUF isn't a real school, it's just like a continuation of high school. People outside of California don't even know about CSUF so why waste your time at a school that isn't nationally recognized if you can get into somewhere that will give you a first class education and cool social life?
I have had good professors and only stopped going because of being unable to pay and getting extremely sick, however the 1-star rating is for what the tuition is doing to me now ( one year after leaving). They do not allow debit payments, so I cannot easily get the record of me paying all my tuition. Now they are sending an email, not even a letter that I owe money, when I made sure to pay everything, and even went to ask multiple times if I owed anything.I believe they did not send this until over a year later, since after so long most people would lose or throw their receipts away. Keep all your receipts from here otherwise they will screw you over.
