Not only does California have some of the best weather in nation, beautiful coastlines, and eternal sunshine, it’s also home to more colleges and universities than any other state in the nation. In fact, including public universities, private colleges, junior colleges, technical schools and career institutes, California offers over 750 higher education institutions for students to choose from. But with so many different options, how do you know which one’s right for you? Well, we suggest that you review the academic profiles for each school, figure out which schools you can afford, identify which provide financial assistance and which are most likely to help you accomplish your long-term career goals and personal aspirations. We also recommend meeting with an admissions officer at each school of interest and taking the time to tour each campus. We also suggest that you get a second opinion from an objective third party. That’s where unbias reviews from students, alumni and current faculty will help you narrow your search down to just one school.
Below our editor’s have compiled reviews provided by students, faculty and alumni for all the college and universities in California. To help you get a better feel for what each school has to offer, we’ve also include ranking reports and statistics provided by major college ranking organizations including U.S. News & World Report, Forbe’s, Business Week, the Wallstreet Journal, and more.
