If you mean California State University, then the best ones are:

CSU Northridge- This is where most music educators go to college and has a good amount of influence in the music world. They also have concentrations in film scoring and jazz (many famous jazz players are professors here).

Cal Poly SLO - while famous for engineering and architecture, Cal Poly SLO brings its hands-on approach to music education as well.

SJSU - This college has 56 undergrads which is larger for a CSU campus, and San Jose boasts access to the bay area jobs market.
