I have attended Cal State San Marcos since Fall of last year. The greatest thing, in regards to the learning environment at Cal State San Marcos, is that students get to feel like a student and not just another number. The classes are rather small- medium size, about high school size, depending on where you went to high school, which allows students, should they choose, to develop great relationships with their professors. I got to personally know each one of the the professors I've had thus far and it's been such a great experience. They have taught me so much...

    When i first heard about this college it wasn't as interesting as it is now. When i first stepped on their campus i realized that this University was different than the rest. It's not a big university but it's very nice and i can tell that students find themselves comfortable with the environment. With this said, my older sister attends CSUSM and so will I.

    A community college-level education with university prices. My high school courses were more rigorous than the courses here. Most students come because they want to party with SDSU and didn't get in, or didn't get in anywhere else.

    The faculty at CSUSM is very helpful and responsive. This attention is very much needed for those who are in need or urgent help and assistance. The campus is BEAUTIFUL; the university has a great environment for students to learn and where students can feel extra safe. I love the huge diameters of the university, and I am also very favorable towards the sectioned off space for nursing students ;)

    California State University San Marcos is a awesome university to attend. There is a small staff here but it is very welcoming and you really get one on one attention from your professors. The only thing I have to really do is to study hard for classes and do the work!

    It is a good school, but it is extremely hard to get the classes that you need. If you are a science major they only offer one class for each requirement and they fill up very quickly. You will have to crash a lot of classes.
