I feel like this school has an overall nice vibe to it. Though I am doing online, I could see the campus is somewhere I would feel safe and its definitely somewhere I'd love to spend my freetime at. The professors seem to also be very hands-on, especially through online classes.
The CSU Long Beach Distance Education Program for graduate studies in Social Work is a fantastic opportunity and I highly recommend it to anyone considering it. I'm very grateful for the opportunity to build a community with my cohort and to be instructed face-to-face, albeit virtually, by the amazing social workers and professors at CSULB.
I believe this is a great school. I know many people who go here and even my older sister attends this school. I applied to this school just last fall and got in. I plan to attend CSULB next fall as a nutrition major. I think Long beach is the perfect school. I've actually spend the night there before and can agree the rooms and housing is pretty nice. I stayed there for one weekend for cheer camp. I was able to almost get that student experience. The food was amazing and they had various options to pick from. The rooms were a good size and had enough room for the average person. Overall long beach had a lot to offer from meals to rooms and even academics. I would recommend long beach to anyone if they want to have a good college experience.

California State University of Long Beach is a beautiful school where you can achieve your dreams and goals.
I dont consider anything about my school bad.
My classmates are a beutiful mix of every human under the sun with unique backgrounds, perspectives, and ideas that make our campus community a vision of the future.
A person attending Long Beach State should be open minded with an urgency to learn. Not only does one learn in the classroom, but outside the classroom as well. Anyone who is interested in joining a club or sport would be a good candidate for this school beacuse they offer a variety of extra carricular activities! This school also offers very interesting classes that will capture anyone's attention who wants to learn and expand their knowledge.
There are several things I wish I had known before choosing my school. I wish I had known that the school fosters no sense of community, harbors a poor quality education, and there is no freshman integration program. Though there was no way to tell at the time, I also wish I had known that my tuition and fees would increase another four thousand dollars between the time I enrolled and the time the school year started.
CSULB is very diverse. There are tons of different cultural, ethnic, and religious groups on campus. Every group has an opportunity to communicate their beliefs and values without discrimination.
The weather and the size of the campus are my favorite aspects of it, as well as the landscape. It is never blistering hot or freezing cold, there is always a nice breeze, and many trees and grassy areas with flowers dot the campus. The campus is over a mile across, allowing for lots of areas to hang out, study quietly, or to even take a nap under a tree.
My school has a beautiful campus and, though it is large, the exercise is great.
A person that likes to have fun and be near the beach should attend.
While I attended school there, the only thing that was not pleasant was parking. Fortunately, they have added more parking spaces, free bus rides, and shuttles for more convenient ways to commute to campus.
CSULB is known for being the second largest and one of the highest ranked schools out of the California State University system.
the professors i care about know me by name and they're the one's i'll be going to for letters of rec. when i apply for grad school. my favorite class had to have been organic chemistry. though my professor was a total hardass, he really taught me how to use my brain and stay up for two nights at a time. we talked about life while walking out of class once, so i guess we're cool. i'm also another professor's bitch, and am forced to do unpaid labor in his hot, unkept laboratory, but he's cool so i forgive him. i like the kids in my major. we looooove to whine and bitch about the kids in business and liberal arts. it's fun to get drunk with'em too. :)
ok, so here's what i DON'T like: BUDGET CUTS. i also hate the whole admissions process. they let waaaaayyy too many people in, then bitch about how they can't support all their students later. also, they only consider gpa and sat scores. no extracurricular activities, personal statement, community service, etc.
i think alot of the school's problem's could be eliminated if they just made the application process a bit more competitive, but i'm just a student, so what do i know?
there are a million clubs, but i will warn you. some of them are pretty lame. but once you find the good catch, you will meet some really cool people. i used to live in the dorms my first two years, but it gets old after that. it is fun though, and you meet alot of your close friends there. if you are one of those party 24/7 type of people, beverly plaza is always nice. it's an apartment right down the street notorious for its drinking and partying and all that crap. on weekends, there's not much to do on campus, so just go hang out around town, and you'll always find something fun.
My overall opinion is that this is a great school to attend. Whenever i talk to someone and they ask what school i go to I am always proud to say that I go to Cal State Long Beach. Everyone always thinks highly of this school and you can do some great networking while attending.
They are listless and cynical.
One common stereotype at my school is that most students are surfers! Which is not true at all. Most people that go to my school are from a very diverse background and many different taste, I for one have never surfed in my life.
