    Literature and Writing Studies, Class of 2007

    My school was small and provided small class sizes for direct help from instructors and ability to build relationships with classmates. There were many academic/social clubs on campus. There is a teaching certification program and many real world majors available at the school.

    Commuter culture, as at the time I attended no dorms had yet been built. So there was not a lot of on-campus activity during the later hours

    It was a new school at the time and just finding / defining it's culture

    It is a commuter school with students who usually work and go to school. There is not a lot of "partying". The student body is very diverse in terms of age, social class, gender, race, ethnicity, etc.

    As a recent addition to the Cal State University system, most facilities were built within the last 20 years. Lots of access to computers in the expansive library. Many choices of food in the common area.

    This school is too new to have developed a lot of campus traditions, especially since there was no students living on-campus until recently, and it is not a big sports school at this time.

    The school was fairly new at the time -- that was also just being established
