CSUN ranks No. 6 among the “most transformative colleges” in the nation, according to Money Magazine — meaning that students who attend CSUN often exceed expectations placed on them due to their academic and economic backgrounds. The university climbed from No. 7 last year on the magazine’s list. In a list of 50 transformative schools, the magazine’s website,, noted factors such as graduation rates, earnings and student loan repayment when ranking schools.
