I started taking classes at Chico State as a high school student and was frustrated to find that the school was just a continuation of the idiocy of high school, with the only difference being that students can smoke ON campus instead of going a block away from the high school to do so.

The academics were interesting, but not challenging at all. If anything, they were EASIER than my high school classes. I think the school is just going downhill even more because of the budget crisis here in California.

As far as things to do: there is not much innocent fun to be had here in Chico. Even if you go in to college being a sober person, by the time you leave Chico State (if you graduate at all), you'll be a partier and will have killed countless brain cells with alcohol/marijuana.

Some positive things about Chico State are its beauty and its library. Chico Creek runs through campus and the campus is full of trees and flowers. The library is large and extensive with inspiring views of campus and ample computer labs.

My experience at Chico State makes me think that state schools are not the way to go. For a real education, go to a private school.
