Most Helpful Review for California State University-Monterey Bay

The classes are not too large so the teachers have more one-on-one time with their students. The only problem are furlough days that take away more time to learn.

    A small diverse university nestled in the beautiful Monterey Peninsula. CSUMB offers small class sizes and extraordinary teachers that have a passion for educating the future of America. Lots of extra-curricular and professional networking activities to help students create personal and professional friendships that will benefit them in the future. Great school!

    It's a fairly small school which is great since it allows you to really get to know your peers and professors. We have a great setup with free bus rides with MST and free laundry in the dorms, and that's because it's already part of our tuition but you get your money's worth! The campus is relatively quiet on the weekends and there isn't a big party life; the school gets a lot of crap but I like it.

    CSU-Monterey Bay is a great school. The school size is still currently growing, and creating a bigger community for students. CSUMB is working on creating a stronger program for computer science and informational technology, if interested.

    I absolutely love it here. You learn so much more than you would ever expect and can still have a great time as long as you are open to learning. If you want to drink all day and be fratty or take selfies... PLEASE DONT COME HERE.

    CSUMB is a small university located in a beautiful area. Surrounded by beautiful terrestrial and marine ecosystems with unpredictable weather. The renovation of the Fort Ord Military Base into a university is sure to provide a unique perception of college campus.
