Christina from Long Beach, CA
California State University Dominguez Hills has a good size campus, it is not to big nor too small. It has a huge library and even a cafe in it. There is always something going on outside and the students are very active.
Gabriela from Wilmington, CA
Great school for both undergraduate and graduate work. The campus itself, the students, and professors are all very kind and willing to help a student out and are also very inviting. The school is not a party school but rather a community school where people work together and have fun (that does not involve drinking or smoking, etc.) but by holding events that let students become involved on campus.
