Just had a chance to step in the Admin Office and was able to bump into some great teachers in the Multi Cultural Education Program.

It's got a beautiful theater, Carpenter Hall for big events, shows and the gym is absolutely state of the art. Best gym I have ever seen, climbing wall, squash courts, on and on.

There is a fantastic new molecular biology building, and it houses all of the other sciences, but most of the people on campus weren't friendly and it's the sort of school where the students will be numbers and will get lost in the shuffle.

I'm not sure what there is to really see or do on this campus. It's one of the better managed and funded CSU campuses. My daughter has been especially well treated by their track coach, so I have nothing but praise for the staff that I've met.

Despite being a large University, this place is well organized and traffic is not an issue. Buildings are easy to locate and people are friendly.

Good place to learn about Native American People and see some of the dances and just enjoy. Food and handmade items are sold. There is information on Native American study the university has to off. Its a good place to spend a day, eat great food and learn something new.
