All of the schools have emergency preparedness and procedures in place. That being said, no one here (in California) can predict when an area is likely to be on fire, to be flooded, or to be without water. California tries to conserve energy and water. California is a very large state. We have a little bit of everything here: Mountains, deserts, agriculture, rocky and winded beaches, etc.
All of the California schools have parties but the student can choose not to participate. SDSU has gotten a bad rap about being a party school. It’s so large that you can choose to do whatever you want and there’s no pressure to “party”. SDSU also happens to be very tough and competitive to get into, so, high GPA’s are expected of its admitted students. Given the quoted UW GPA, I don’t think the poster’s daughter will be at an advantage.
A number of California schools that have not been mentioned that might fit the bill including Chico State, University of the Pacific, Fresno, San Jose, the consortium colleges (Scripps, Clairemont McKenna, Pitzer, etc.) University of LaVerne, Whittier, etc.
Your daughter needs to specify what areas of California are of interest. Most of California isn’t the “beach” scene.
