| I thought that people generally would be friendlier. I have moved around quite a bit and have been to several colleges and universities. I found it easier to get along with people at community colleges and reccomend it to people to go to them before going to a cal state or UC, you will not only save more money and get more help from professors, but you will more likely get accepted to a school that you want to. If I wouldn't have gotten a full scholarship to this school, I wouldn't have gone. Plain and simple. It is a bit too overcrowded compared to other universities I have visited. I had no idea what I was getting into. |

I had a mixed experience at the school, both good and bad and I managed to tough it out. |
-shuttle service around campus so I would not get ran over by careless students.
-advocacy from DSS
-Some good professors
-the campus was nice and so is the basketball arena
-snacks during finals week
-a few professors that understood my disability
-Many different venues around campus, such as the theater, the concert hall, the Pyramid, Japanese Gardens, etc.
-The city has a lot of things for people to do
-Good advisers that can help me decide what class/professor I should have
-Some of the people do not speak very good English, so it is hard to ask, for example, when applying or all over campus.
-Too many people and not enough classes
-People who study on the weekends
-People just being flat out rude
-Some professors are very insensitive
-Studying in the library becomes an inapporpriate chit-chat session
-A lack of supervision when the k-12 schools visit here
-Trying to get into the university and be given a run aroundOverall, I would give the school a 6.5 out of 10 and there are some things that need to improve to better the quality for me and other students.
