    My tip for a prospective student would be that if you're fine with coming to a small school, then this is a good choice. Also, being accepting is great as well. If you're having trouble with anything, there are many resources here so don't be worried.

    This school is very quiet and has a small student population. There are not nearly as many students or recreational facilities compared to other universities. Life at CSUMB provides a unique college experience rather than the classic image of what one considers to be a college experience. As a prospective student, it is recommended that you pursue a degree in science (environmental science, environmental studies, biology, marine biology) as this university has a renowned program for these majors. While small and intimate, this university is great for those who love moments of silence to themselves within a beautiful natural area. A key bit of advice is that it can be difficult to transfer from CSUMB to other universities due to a unique academic structure.

    Apply early. Apply for all scholarships. Work hard. Those three go with every college you pursue.
