      The University




      The University

      California State University, Chico is a fully accredited, state-supported member of a 23-campus CSU system.  The university is a residential campus serving a diverse student body of approximately 14,000. 


      Founded in 1887, CSU, Chico offers undergraduate and graduate programs in the Colleges of Behavioral and Social Sciences; Communication and Education; Computer Science, Engineering and Technology; Humanities and Fine Arts; Natural Sciences; Business; and, Agriculture.

      The Community

      With a population of nearly 96,000, Chico is located in the Sacramento Valley near the foothills of the Sierra Nevadas.  It is 180 miles northeast of San Francisco and 90 miles north of Sacramento and offers a reasonable cost of living compared to metropolitan areas. 


      Chico retains the charm of a small town while offering excellent medical services, public and private schools, and many cultural and recreational activities.  The city’s Bidwell Park, second largest municipal park west of the Mississippi, extends from the city center along a creek deep into the foothills and surrounding canyons.
