Beautiful campus. Great art work on exhibit. Ollie University for Seniors located on site. Great place to attend college. All cultures welcome. Good baseball team!!! I like to go on campus and visit the pottery rooms on the weekend when student are doing their projects. Beautiful Japanese Garden open certain hours. Very worth while visiting.

what a great university! it is located in an amazing property and everything has been taken into account. It is not only great for students, but well worth a visit when you are in the neighboorhood. Do visit the pyramid and new track and field!

This is a beautiful university in a wonderful location. The access to the university is very easy. The only drawback is limited parking. Other than that it is great.

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.
