The perfect university in all aspects! Whether it be through sports, education, clubs, or connects, CSUN is guaranteed to get you ready for the real world, and you'll have fun doing it! In just one year, I have discovered my perfect school, and I'm proud to say I'm a Northridge Matador!

CSUN is a smaller university, but has a lot to offer and is close to home for many people. The advisers are always there to help and make sure you are on task and recommend programs to get into that help accelerate your graduation process. There are always events and giveaways going on that you can do whenever you are bored waiting for class.
