We all know selecting a college is a tough choice. Here at Chico State, we want new students to be sure. That is why we offer an open house and day of activities that will help prospective students decide if Chico is the place for them.
In anticipation of this year’s Choose Chico! event (April 6, 2013), we asked our current students and alumni on Twitter to share why they chose Chico State. The response was overwhelming; Chico is a special place.
Many based their decision on our program offerings:

@chicostate I chose Chico for the Graphic Design department, beautiful campus, social atmosphere & manageable drive home to the Bay Area 🙂

@chicostate The creek running through campus, the small class sizes, the cute downtown and the welcoming "college town" atmosphere!
