    The campus is very joyful. It is a progressive school; the educators are open-minded, making it a goal to be productive in the community, goal to be environmentally friendly, and gives students the means to be intuitive. One of the most beautiful places to walk around in Bakersfield.

    The university and the town aren't necessarily enjoyable. I think that a lot can be improved around here. I do not think the town is easy to get around and the traffic can be horrible for those who wish to drive. The campus is still a commuter campus, so there are not many activities going on. I do not feel connected with my peers and it is hard to connect with staff because they are familiar with the types of students at commuter schools. Even though the campus is mediocre in size and population, it still feels dysfunctional and disconnected.

    Unlike other Universities, CSUB is small and easy to get around, not to mention that its very beautiful. It's very easy to make friends and the clubs and events are very entertaining. And if anyone has a large gap between two classes, there's a student recreation center that has various exercise equipments and some dance classes.

    Because this university is so small, you will share many classes with the same people. I have made many friendships in a very short time while being here. This is a beautiful campus, and I love coming here. The wide array of clubs and extracurricular activities are also things I enjoy immensely

    The school has everything a student might be looking for. The school has a recreation center, a health center, a counselling center, a library, and a career development center. What more could you ask for?
