What's Great About Chico State?
“This campus is beautiful in all seasons. The campus has changed so much in recent years and with each new building or change, it gets more beautiful. How the new buildings have been incorporated in the existing campus environment makes them seem like they have always been here. All the people inside the buildings are what make the campus truly special. I am happy to be a part of such a beautiful campus and amazing campus community.”
