Become a Warrior Today!

Welcome to CSU Stanislaus

The University opened as Stanislaus State College in 1960, with a faculty of 15 and fewer than 800 students, at the Stanislaus County Fairgrounds in Turlock. The institution moved to its current location in 1965, gained university status and its present name in 1986, and opened its Stockton Center in 1998.


California State University, Stanislaus serves a diverse student body of more than 9,000 at two locations in the Central Valley — a beautiful 228-acre campus in Turlock and the Stockton Center, located in the city’s historic Magnolia District. Widely recognized for its dedicated faculty and high-quality academic programs, the University offers more than 100 majors, minors and areas of concentration, along with 24 master's degree programs and a doctorate in educational leadership

The focus is on you

The Princeton Review consistently rates CSU Stanislaus among the Best Colleges in the nation, and Time Magazine recently ranked theuniversity No. 28 in the nation for access, affordability and graduation rate. Unlike larger, impersonal campuses, ours feels friendly and welcoming. While we've grown from our 1960 founding class of 800 to our 2014 fall enrollment of 9,045, we treat you like there’s only one of you. Most classes have fewer than 21 students - more chances for one-on-one with your professors.

Warrior Day 2015


After careful consideration, I have come to the conclusion that this school is certainly the school I ought to attend in the fall of 2015. One reason I chose this to be my school of choice is because they are one of the best schools that offer a degree in liberal studies. This aligns with my known knowledge of many teachers getting their degree specifically from CSU Stanislaus. My interest is teacher and I plan on majoring in Liberal Studies both multi. subject and even in chemistry. I plan to hopefully in the future work at a middle a school. I am also sure that the clubs and wide variety of fraternities would be a great influence on my social and communication skills with others around me. CSU Stanislaus offers many interesting and interacting clubs along with a great campus and hands on experience classes which makes me believe that CSU Stanislaus is the school for me. I hope to soon be a warrior. GO STANISLAUS WARRIORS!
