    It's a good school if you can't get into any other one. You'll be in the CSU system so it will be easy to transfer into another CSU.

    This would be considered an average school. There are many students so it does get a bit hectic when trying to get into classes. However, overall its a great price in comparison to other universities.

    CSULA is a very adequate size campus that really is substantially student friendly, in a way that allows students to find their classes easier due to its compact yet adequate size. Including its environment, enriched in natures beautiful tree's, flowers, bushes, considering its located on a hill. But nonetheless, this college really tries to focus on aiding students any way possible with people friendly assistants standing by to answer any questions and leading students to a better route. One major thing that really stood out for me as a summer school program attendee was the facilitators, they are made up of students just like me, who in great part take their knowledge to educate those incoming students into achieving and succeeding, not only that, they inform us, students, about the possibilities and what is necessary to do in order to really gain something valuable from college to be taken by us and used in our daily lives. The fact that students don't fool around and actually place themselves as mentors really flabbergasted my view of CSULA.
