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.
commentI agree with your comment about going to community college. I got along with people more at the community college (I ran into some old friends from H.S. also at the JC) and most of them were a lot nicer. When I came to CSULB, I noticed a drop in the maturity level of a number of students.
commentI agree with the reviewer. I did not know what I got myself into when I came here. I thought it would be a great school; however, I was proven wrong with the lack of maturity of students and some (not all) of the professors overworking the students.
