    There are specials in the restaurants where for $5 you can buy breakfast, lunch or dinner, or simply some snacks. Not to mention the facilities are always clean as well as the bathrooms. I once bought a very big slice of pizza and a medium soda for $5. It was delicious.

    Definitely as a film school, although the equipment and quality of staff may be lower than a top tier school, you will still get a good education and learn all the same things everyone else at the other schools will, and you'll get out with a lot less debt.

    CSUN has a good vibe. The student, professors, and administrators are upbeat and just plain nice. I'm a foodie, so I love the on and off campus food available in the area. I take the bus to and from school, and the route is easy and cheap. I love going to college more than I thought I would.
