    The nursing package will tell us exactly what needs to be done right? Hopefully it comes sooner so that we know exactly what needs to be done!

    How is the campus, student services and stuff like that? I know that CSULA is considered a commuter school which is fine for me. I'm wondering also, where would be a good place to live in regards to commuting to school? I know the area isnt the best but do you have any suggestions?

    Their campus is pretty decent; I would consider it a medium sized campus. There are some really old buildings mixed with some really nice ones so it balances out =P There's a Student Union (it's new) where a lot of students come to chill or study and a nice gym in the basement that you get to use at no extra cost, so try to take advantage of it! Oh and there's also a Starbucks on campus!! YUM. The classes are actually pretty small compared to most colleges. The largest lecture I had had about 190 students and that was a popular human anatomy class. Regarding student services, there are free tutoring services in the library, a health office, enrollment services, cashier's office, financial aid; etc. You can get free scantrons and blue books from the ASI Center in the Student Union (don't forget this!!). Oh and there's also a very convenient bus/train station on campus, too Not sure about clubs, but I feel like a lot of them are fraternities and sororities based on what I saw during welcome week haha. I know there are clubs that we can join once we're in nursing school though. As for living off campus and stuff, I actually commute to CSULA, so I wouldn't know much about good places to live near CSULA, sorry

    hey guys! i currently go to csula. i live off campus cuz dorming is just so ridiculously expensive! theres some nearby apartments to the school. they are a bit on the ghetto side...but theyre safe and cheap. i have a roommate and pay about 450 a month. Does anyone know some of the shots we might need? i wanted to get a head start on those
    and btw congrats to everyone for getting in! :]

    Soooooo much to do, thanks for the handbook infor. I am doing my physical exams and immunizations as well as CPR now. I feel so stressed......

    lol Lwang13. dont feel stressed out now... otherwise, once we start the program, i'm afraid what it will do to you! I know there is a lot to do, but we still have 4 months to get them done. Many people have told me that this is the last summer to have fun for a long time so i'm gonna take advantage and so should you!
