            A great school for productive minds, Chico State and every experience within was monument to my personal transition from theories surrounding computers to a vast array of their highly practical applications. Every resource a dedicated student might possibly need is at his/her disposal and the faculty/staff take great care to ensure that the students have a smooth ride throughout their professional self discovery.
