    Might take about a year for you to get fully accustomed to the campus and pace of it all. Though its more accurate to say that the pace always changes as you progress through your major. Don't be afraid to wander around the campus on your free time(and preferrably during daylight), not enough people do so.

  • I am accepted here and planning to attend soon

    Consider CSUN to be on your top three colleges to attend because they offer so much for the students comfort, its stunning to see a big school put this much effort. You may not know it now, but this is a good match for anyone, just do your research and you'll see what i mean.

    You may want to be able to drive, otherwise living in the San Fernando Valley may be too boring. Make sure to do research on what classes you actually need for your degree, but also take breather classes during tough semesters so you don't overwhelm yourself. When I say it's very diverse, it's because I came from an Asian-dominant neighborhood, so it was quite a culture shock for a while. But besides that, check out the different clubs, whether it be a club for your major, or a club that you find interesting, so don't just overwhelm yourself with school.
