Every class that I have taken at Chico State has taught me something I am able to refer to in other classes. The professors teach you above and beyond the class subject you picked including subject material and how that material can be applied to your everyday life.

    Chico State is everything I imagined and more. Not only have I met the friendliest and most outgoing people here, but this small college town resembles everything you would want throughout your years in college. Chico State has great academics, clubs, social life and a community filled with school spirit.

    Chico is a great school for students who are looking for the true college experience. There are a plethora of ways to get involved on campus, the classes are just the right size where you feel welcome and not overwhelmed and I have zero regrets about making the choice to transfer here. The one drawback is that the party atmosphere of the campus means that to be successful here you have to have some self control, which not everyone does.

    Chico State is a great college town. I have met some of the nicest people since I have moved here. The academic are great, everyone takes school serious and stays focused throughout the entire semester; which makes it easier because we are all in the same boat.

    Chico State has a beautiful campus and some great teachers. Luckily I changed my major but both majors have had great programs. The only thing I do not like about chico is the safety and party atmosphere. It is very unsafe at night for girls and even guys. As every has heard it is a huge party school and many people get sucked up into it and end up failing school. It can be a rough atmosphere to focus and feel safe and be able to have fun.

    Chico State has a rich historical campus and a very comfortable atmosphere. I approached the Science building to ask about scholarships and was greeted with open arms. I was shown where Chico State Physics graduates get positions after graduation and I feel I have made a pretty perfect choice.

    The campus was beautiful and had the old style feel. It has a spread out area but majority of the core class buildings were towards the front. The area surrounding the campus was cozy.

    Chico State has a beautiful campus that offers many activities/ clubs. I have found it easy to get into the class I need to take as well as going up and talking to my professors. Even though Chico State is considered a party school, the school does a lot to stray away from that stigma.
