    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.
