With more than 41,000 students enrolled at California State University, Fullerton and more than 25,000 students at Fullerton College, the college town has thrived for decades as an academic/economic engine that continues to roll at full steam ahead. A large part of the success is due to a vibrant environment primed for Fullerton student living thanks to campuses and a city that work in tandem to ensure students have the best experience during the best years of their lives. From great places to study for upcoming exams to coffee houses serving some stellar brews, check out these suggestions that will help Fullerton students knock it out of the park with an academic grand slam.

Campus Libraries

It’s no secret that if you’re looking for a quiet place to write that research paper or prep for upcoming exams, you should head straight for the libraires on campus. The Pollak Library is the main campus library at CSUF. The main library at Fullerton College is closed during the fall semester, but access to their online library is available. In addition to having knowledgeable librarians on staff to help you find whatever resource you need, you also have access to online databases that will certainly help you build an impressive citation list for your final paper. Make sure to inquire about hours of operation so you can plan accordingly.

Student Central

The great thing about calling these campuses home is access to the Student Center at Fullerton College and the Titan Student Union at CSUF — the central locales on campus where students regularly hang out with friends, participate in activities, and can find a good place to prepare for a presentation. 

Academic Support

Need help with a certain class subject? Need to sharpen your knowledge about grammar? Need to up your game in the focus department? Whether coaching, advising, or tutoring, the Academic Support Center at Fullerton College (https://academicsupport.fullcoll.edu/) and the  Academic Advisement Center at CSUF (http://www.fullerton.edu/aac/) are available to make sure your journey to graduation is a positive one. Services offered are a fantastic resource for students to take advantage of, and with social distancing measures in place, make sure to ask about online opportunities.

Follow the Brew

Sometimes it’s good to find a place off-campus to dive into a solid study sesh. One of the best places to do that is your favorite coffee house or the discovery of a new one. Find that secluded corner, pop in the EarPods, sip on your mocha, and prep for that research paper. Lucky for you, Fullerton has some great coffee hot spots — Intentional Coffee, Dripp, The Night Owl, Philz Coffee, and Starbucks, just to name a few.

Park It

With refreshing fall weather here, what better way to squeeze in some quality study time on a crisp day than finding that perfect spot outdoors? Grab a blanket, a warm or iced caffeinated or decaf beverage, and a charged laptop to hit the books in laid-back style. Fullerton has some great park options, such as Hillcrest Park, Craig Regional Park, Laguna Lake Park, and more. And remember: Don’t forget to take some breaks to breathe deep and enjoy the fresh air — the semester is almost over, and you got this!
