            2002-2006, Teaching Credential

            CSUN's Michael D . Eisner College of Education provided the best training to become the teacher I am today. I really enjoyed attending CSUN and found that the faculty really cares about teachers becoming life long learners. The process and rigor I experienced has stayed with me to this day and I always make it a point to let others know that CSUN is the place to go.

            When I was ready to complete my education, I first looked at UCLA. At the time, they did not offer a general undergraduate business program (just economics), so I CSUN. The school provided an excellent and well rounded education, with great preparation for a career in marketing, accounting, finance or management.

All kind of facilities related to the Practical/lab studies and plus point is the multi-cultural environment of the school which helps one to know about other cultures. I am glad and proud to be a part of CSUN.
