I loved CSUSM. I recommend living in the dorms the 1st year, because that is the best way to meet new people and make new friends. I was in the "San Marcos Experience" and highly recommend it. It allows you to take 2 or 3 classes with the same group of people, while still taking other classes with the rest of the student body. I also really liked CSUSM because the majority of classes are relatively small, the campus is new and beautiful, and everyone is friendly. One drawback is that there is not much of nightlife in San Marcos itself (besides student parties/get togethers); however many students go to Carlsbad for this (only 10 mins away), SDSU, or Downtown SD (30 minutes away).
