Student Life

Traditions

  • Statue of Fallen David

Near the center of a campus lays a scale replica of Michaelangelo's David that lays broken. It was brought onto campus by a professor in 1988 after the statue had broken apart during the 1987 Whittier-Narrows earthquake. Its original meaning was intended to be "no man-made structure can withstand the power of nature. However, its upwards-facing buttocks is softly rubbed in a clock-wise motion by student for general good luck. [9] Michelangelos David, sculpted from 1500 to 1504, is a masterpiece of Renaissance sculpture and one of Michelangelos two greatest works of sculpture, along with the Pietà. However, it is the David alone that almost certainly holds the title of the most recognizable statue in the history of art. ...

  • Snow Day

Every Fall, three tons of faux snow are dumped into the campus quad and students are welcome to the paradoxical California sun and wintry surroundings. [10]

  • Rabbit Chasing

There is a fairly large population of rabbits that inhabit northeastern portion of campus that appear during the night. It is tradition for lovelorn students to touch the ears or tails of the rabbits, although the suburban rabbits are particularly elusive. This is said to make the object of a person's affection reciprocate that sentiment.


Housing

Cal State Fullerton has on-campus housing available to students in the form of co-ed residence halls with apartment-style suites. There are two sections, or "phases" to the housing complex. Phase I consists of double-occupancy suites in which there are three bedrooms, with two students to each bedroom. Phase II consists of single-occupancy suites in which there are four bedrooms, with each student getting his or her own room. Because each suite has a fully-functioning kitchen, there is no meal plan or cafeteria.[11] The Resident Student Association (RSA) is the student government of the residence halls. RSA sponsors a wide variety of programs and looks to the residents for ideas for improving on-campus living.
