What are the dorms like on campus? What would you recommend students bring to their dorms?

Living in the dorms was an amazing experience. Being right on campus for your first year surrounded so closely by others who are just starting out in college too really helps the transition coming from high school.

How did you go through the process of choosing a roommate?

For CSUF, you filled out an about me questionnaire and were matched with people who you had the most in common with. You could agree to room with them, choose someone else on your own or just get a random roommate chosen by the staff.

How do you get to classes? Do you take public transportation, ride a bicycle, walk, etc.? Is the campus spread across large distances?

Our campus only takes about twenty minutes from end to end to walk, so I walked to my classes from the dorms my first year. Now, I live in an apartment about fifteen minutes away from the school so I drive to school and then walk to all my classes.

What supplies do you normally use in your classes? What do you bring with you on a daily basis?

I usually take notes by hand so I bring a five subject notebook for my classes and then pens, pencils and highlighters. I also bring my laptop for any online assignments.

How do you balance your school work with any jobs that you may have throughout the year?

I work every day that I do not have class, so I have had to adjust to balancing out everything. I just make sure I plan out my assignment due dates and not procrastinate because I usually have no time to do things last minute.
