I am a business major in my firstQuite BrightBusiness - Management and Administration
I am a business major in my first semester at the university. Monterey was not my first choice, but I went there because I was denied admission into my first choice school. I have to say that after being there for just one week, I know that I should have stayed at the JC and tried again later to gain admission to my first choice. The university has a set of added requirements that pretty much make it impossible to graduate in two years for a transfer student. The teachers treat you like high school kids. Lap Tops are not allowed in class what so ever. As someone that has been taking notes on a lap top for my entire College career, not being able to use one is quite an inconvenience. The dorms are pretty average, but if something is broken, good luck getting it fixed. The wireless internet in the dorms is pretty much impossible to use. The only thing this school really has going for it is the small class sizes. The school has potential, but it is definitely a long way away from realizing that potential. I will be transferring out in the spring.

CSUMB staff are not just horrible at theirBrightBusiness - Management and Administration
CSUMB staff are not just horrible at their job, they're horrible people. You have many instructors who throw you a text book on day one, and call it a semester. You have instructors openly admitting to providing students with study guides that only prepare you to get a C if you commit that study guide to memory, then blaming the students for low test scores. Admissions are some of the lowest forms of life in this school, they hate their jobs, and it shows. CSUMB does not practice the SERVICE CULTURE AND ETHICS it preaches so often in it's Business School. I laugh when they email/call me about their new online graduate program. I got my Bachelors degree there, but would never spend one more dollar to fund the mass stupidity that takes place their. Don't take my word for it though, go there and see for yourself how it feels to NOT get what your promised when your asked to pay for their educational "service."

Here's an email from the Chief of PoliceBusiness - Management and Administration
Here's an email from the Chief of Police regarding rape/sexual assults that happened last week:
"Important message from University Chief of Police

Dear students, staff and faculty,
I am writing to make you aware of incidents of sexual assault involving students that have occurred on our campus during the past three weeks. The University Police Department and other university resources are responding

to these reports in every possible way and addressing them with the utmost seriousness.
A total of four incidents have been reported, including one case of alleged rape. In each instance, the involved parties were acquaintances, and all four victims are students. All involved parties have been contacted

and interviewed by our department. None of these incidents are related, and there is no known threat to the community."

No wonder the violent crime rate at this place is out of control. The police here don't think that rapist and molesters are a threat to the community. Also, when a woman stabbed her husband to death, the Monterey County district attorney dropped the murder charges against her because the CSUMB campus police testified on her behalf.
