What Students Are Saying

3.87 Average Rating
DO NOT be fooled into believing that the class is easy just because the title looks simple! It will probably be the hardest class you may have! The teachers are great whenever you need help and they will actually take the time to show you step by step but they will NOT baby you. You must in the effort as well.
First Year Student
CSU Chico offers a great academic program. Every professor takes their job seriously, offering knowledge to those who seek it. Personally, I'm in the Biology program, and what excites me about it is that, as an Undergrad, I can actually do co-research with someone. Not many UC's or other private institutions allow that, especially for an undergrad. It's a great opportunity, not only is it good on a resume, but it develops better skills. Talking about resumes, we have free resume consulting on campus in the Student Services Center building. Chico State offers tons of resources, including tutoring, mentoring, and so on.
Juan from Chico, CA
Chico State courses require a lot from the students. I have had to write a twelve page essay in my first year and attend mandatory events. For example, in my Political Science class, I had to attend a Town Hall meeting where you discuss issues in society with professionals who find that issue important. I talked about plastic pollution and how this issue should be tackled as county and state issues. Chico State also focuses a lot on having good public speaking skills. They want you to sound confident by being prepared and by making eye contact wit those who you are presenting to.
