    Where are you going to school?

    Go to LA, SD, SB, SF, Napa, OC....the list goes on. You won't be able to go to school and see everything in one semester so what type of person are you?

    Age, day trips or nightlife?

    You chose a school based on...Yelp reviews...for parties.

    Yes, I like paying several grand for parties too...based on...Yelp reviews.

    Every school in Cali is a party school :) I went to UCSB.

    Ride the river in Chico, I am sure you will.

    SF, of course, go to Tahoe if you can since you are close. Go to Santa Cruz and Capitola. Go get drunk in Napa. I get that you are in college and what not and in Chico of all places. You can get drunk and walk around Chico and probably have the time of your life but you will miss 99% of Cali that way.

    I went to Chico once, in high school, to party w friends who graduated. That was it for me.

    If you travel down the coast go to Santa Barbara, LA can be overwhelming so pick places if you decide to go there, and if you go way down go to San Diego (Downtown or Pacific Beach).

    Well I'm doing a semster abroad to have fun, party and meet new people. So I'm not going to pick a school based on it's academic ranking or something but based on stories I hear, people I speak to that have been there and yes, yelp reviews.

    Besides that, IM treated me well over the last couple of years so why not.

    Exactly - if I only live once, and if I'm going to school where the primary concern should be education, and I don't want to waste that valuable time that I only get, as you say, once, do tell why I would, for example, waste my one-time-only time going to parties at a place meant for education. If a party is desired, a party should be attended - not a school for a semester, spending money on it, because you only live once. An acronym doesn't give you a reason to be irresponsible. Perhaps you should learn that as well as the OP.

    Because partying is something that is easy to handle when you are young and harder when you are older w responsibilities. If you stop your education later in life then that is the mistake. Parties stop, education shouldn't ever.

    I do miss college. I wish I tried harder, I definitely parties hard, so I could agree w you on some of it but as I get older I want both more more. Only education seems obtainable the older I get as partying fades. Maybe we just have different "schools" of thought. Ha

    chico is a college town full of girls, so u can start with them. when u get out on friday hit reno or tahoe, i like tahoe better when it's snowy in winter, but you can jet ski, fish and gamble in summer. ride bikes across the golden gate in frisco and check out the vibe of the city - it's great, and hit the downtown of san jose for some night life on weekends. I'm pretty ignorant of LA, but make sure you do tijuana once if you head south. have fun man!!

    Whatever you do don't bother with Hollywood. It was disgusting and overpriced. Though I would have to say the museum of death that's there was kinda cool. They have a two headed turtle :D.

    My cousins went to Chico, yes party school like a mofo but they're also doing really well now professionally but you can give a shit about that....Go to San Diego for girl vs guy ratio of hot women vs guys (amazing)...SF is nice for that too...Santa Cruz for hippie chicks about free love but you gotta talk their language usually. Vegas is a must too....Obviously you're wanting places to visit, party and meet girls so there you go. Stay away from San Jose, we call it Man Jose, mostly angry dudes and not that many women. I would say Vegas, LA, SD, SC and SF.

    People are hating on him because Yelp told him that Chico is a party school? Well apparently Yelp gave him correct information, so what's the problem? Haters gonna hate... have fun in Chico man...
