CSUMB University Communications Student Life

STUDENT BODY AT A GLANCE LET US HELP Geographic origin: California One of our mottos is “we are committed to the success of every student.” We know navigating college can be a huge challenge, but CSU Monterey Bay has a variety of programs in place to help you succeed. One whole wing of the library is devoted to programs that do just that. We’ve got a team of tutors who can help on any number of academic subjects, plus peer mentors who offer advice on time management, study skills and balancing college life in general. Check your directions In the Undergraduate Advising Center, professional staff advisors assist students with choosing a major, picking the right classes, and identifying long-range goals for careers or grad school. Go the extra mile Help isn’t just for folks having a hard time. Everybody can use a push now and then, and the results of a little extra effort can have a lifelong impact. For example, the Undergraduate Research Opportunities Center helps students get the most out of their educational investment by participating in research conferences, internships and summer projects under the guidance of dedicated faculty mentors. Participating students gain the competitive edge they need for acceptance into some of the nation’s top graduate programs. Geographic origin: United States and the world Housing Gender Make-up Many students choose to live in CSUMB’s residence halls, suites and apartments. Free laundry, high-speed Internet and cable all come standard, and the rooms are quite spacious because many are remodeled officers’ quarters – one of the ways CSUMB has transformed the former Fort Ord Army base into a comprehensive university. More important than the size of the rooms are the connections you make living on campus. A few themed res halls bring together students with similar interests. Whether you live on campus or commute from town, the friendships you develop will have a huge impact on your overall educational experience – so get involved!
