Chico has all the positives of small town life and close knit community, while still being a fairly large city. Home to the friendliest , most active, and involved community I've been a part of. I've been going to Chico for almost 2 semesters now and I love it.
Matthew from Chico, CA
This is a green campus and is full of open-mined people that are kind and caring. The city surrounding the school is beautiful and though it is considered a 'party city' you don't have to be a party person. Their is almost no pressure to do something your not comfortable with and much of the focus of the school is based on your academics.
