California State University Monterey Bay- CSUMB
CSUMB is a college in the California State University system it's located on land that was previously a sprawling military base known as Ft. Ord. There are still many signs of the distant past around campus from old deteriorating buildings all the way down to the street names. However this in my opinion would be a great place to go to school. You are minutes away from some of the best mountain biking in the country on Ft. Ord public lands and you are minutes away from some good surf spots at the many beaches around Monterey County.
CSUMB offers many BA and BS degree programs in many varied fields including Biology, Environmental Science Technology, Global Studies, Psychology, as well as many more. They also offer several minor programs in Chicano Studies, Computer Science, Outdoor Recreation, and Sports Management as well as several more.They also offer several graduate degree programs.
California State University Monterey Bay to me is the whole package it's got good programs in a beautiful setting with the things I like to do just outside my door.
