This is a commuter school so it's difficultBrightOther
This is a commuter school so it's difficult to make friends. Some of the programs are strong and some are lacking. I like this school but wished I would have visited a lot of campuses because I don't think this school was the right fit. You can definitely reach your goals here though. The professors are nice and approachable for the most part.

Administration-Sometimes you deal with someone friendly and sometimes it is a pain. If you need to correct something or file an appeal, it is a lot of running around and then they request more stuff and it's more running around.

Quarter system- So many students love it but some students do well on a semester system so keep thst in mind when choosing a school.

My advice would be to try to get involved and choose a major that does not require grad school because what professors won't tell you is the cost and most people cannot afford it.

I managed to get a teaching job andEducation
I managed to get a teaching job and then went here to get a teaching credential. My coworkers told me that CSUSB was the home of the "endless credential program" due to all the extra classes I had to take "just so the university can make extra money." A few years later the state changed a law and all my coworkers had to complete those courses that they were telling me were just for CSUSB to make money. CSUSB was ahead of the curve. Also, when I went I was able to pay cash for my classes, so that was nice. I enjoyed all but one teacher and the staff was helpful. Overall I am happy I went to CSUSB.

This school is not that helpful! I majoredPsychology
This school is not that helpful! I majored in a social type of thing. Do not go to this school at all. classes are hard to get into. Most teachers do NOT motivate you to learn. Some are openly prejudice (and they might be prejudice against YOU the person reading this.) In the social sciences classes you just might run across teachers that may favors other students that do NOT try hard and they get into graduate school and you may NOT. If you are disabled they just might discriminated you even by the "student disability program" they have been sued 4 times the last time that I found out and the person who told me was a worker at "Student disability services." Some students get used for free work that they do not pay the student for. I can go on and on, but I will stop here!
