U My favorite class at Cal State Fullerton was the Earth Science class I took that helped spark my curiosity about Earth science and to this day I still think of that class and what I learned from the professor.

Bachelor's in Liberal Arts, Class of 2012

U I liked the different study atmospheres throughout the campus. There was somewhere you could go to study in groups, study in absolute quiet, with computers or without, with light talking, etc. For one class our study group reserved a room that had everything we needed — a computer, projector and white board.

Lindsey
Bachelor's in Communication, Class of 2011

U My favorite part about studying at Cal State Fullerton was the small classes. Even though it is a large university, the classes are small enough to allow you to connect with your classmates and professors. I especially loved the group project in Comm 465. I was able to work on a group project that helped prepare me for my current job.
