Well...San Bernardino is typically a lower middle class community. However, in the area near Cal State, it's more suburban. San Bernardino is the cheapest city in the region, so you can get better deals. If you live near Cal-State, it's freeway close, so you can be in Los Angeles in about an hour or so...depending on traffic. San Bernardino does have higher amounts of crime, but again not in the area around the university. San Bernardino is an extremely diverse city. Really cheap food too. Just don't go into Muscoy and you'll be fine. For some good underground music, check out downtown Redlands and downtown Riverside. Hope this helps.

Muscoy that bad now?? I have a friend that lives there on June street. I used to visit him back in the 80's to about 1989.
He's lived there all of his life, his parents before him.

my family lived in riverside back in the 80"s it is still very beautiful as far as scenery, you can see mountains, trees, ext, the cost of living is modest, rents tend to run on an average of $1600-2500 depending on what your looking for. crime is very low, food and gas prices are the same every where high.

Now let's not be too harsh. San Marcos/CSUSB is a mere 171 mile round trip requiring 4 hours of travel time each day in traffic, and that's only if there are no accidents or weekend/holiday traffic nightmares. What college student wouldn't jump at the chance to live the life of commuter hell before they embark on their career?

Guys,guys! I think Christie was suggesting the OP check out CSU San Marcos as an alternative to attending CSUSB, not living in San Marcos and driving to school in Berdoo (which would indeed be ill advised).
