What Students Are Saying

3.66 Average Rating
just because it is a new school doesn't mean this school is weak. it packs a punch and will make you feel like an adult the minute you drive down campus road.
Frank from Port Hueneme, CA
If you can afford it, definitely try living on campus for a semester or two. This will help you stay social and gain a unique college experience. If you can't, don't worry, just make an extra effort to stay involved! Also, take advantage of the financial aid center and the health clinic! They provide great services that are covered under your tuition payment (i.e. financial information, flu shots, counseling, etc.)
Amara from Ojai, CA
Well there is not much to state about CSUCI other than the fact it is a new Cal State. I am joking there is many interesting things that accommodate to students curiosity. Basic things such as we have a new library, new programs for some majors, the sports are growing as the years pass, and also the classes are just small. The dorms are just wonderful, since they are bigger than usual dorms. The technology is up to date in our campus.
Jose from Oxnard, CA
Freshman should get the 160 meal plan, which is the lowest meal plan because you will never go to the cafe 160 times. The school is surrounded by farms, so you have to drive out to get to stores, restaurants, etc. Explore the campus and find out where your classes are located before school starts. If you are interested in nursing, the nursing program is great. This is not a party school.
Kelly
Definitely start with lower division req.'s for the first semester. Make meetings with peer counselors, they really help.
Sara from North Hollywood, CA
If you are into Liberal Studies, this campus would provide you the most update modern education learning you could get.

Go to your professors office hours! They are here to help you. Seriously. I can't imagine what or even where I would have gotten someone to go over some lecture notes with me other than my professors. Don't get discouraged if you are having a hard time in a class. Take advantage of the fact that they are in here to help you and just let them know what options you have for improving.
Karina from Gardena, CA
-Always asks questions during lectures.
-Go to office hours if you need or have any additional questions, it also doesn't hurt to get to know your professors.
-Join a club, become active on campus!
Helen from Hawthorne, CA
Get involved as much as possible. It is such a small school with not much of the typical after school campus community. If you want to make the best of your college experience here you have to seek it out, volunteer, join a club, go to an event or start your own club. Don't wait for someone to seek you out or hold your hand, you have to take the initiative or you might miss out on some of the best opportunities this school has to offer.
Chantyl from Stockton, CA
Purchase your texts books the first week of class you will find some professors don't use them.
Breeanna from La Verne, CA
