        Excellent Forensics Program (Intercollegiate Speech & Debate)

        Cal State is a great university. The forensics program provided an excellent opportunity to develop critical thinking skills, argumentation techniques and eloquent public speaking delivery and build self confidence. While on the team we went to several other Universities for tournaments. The Communication Studies program and Psychology programs are excellent!
