What is your overall opinion of this school?

Being born and raised in the city that my college is located has been such an amazing experience since I am only a second semester student to say the least. I live off campus so I don't have too many opinions about on-campus leaving. The overall vibe at Cal-State is very welcoming and very peaceful. There are many opportunities to explore your choices which is amazing; from joining clubs to getting help by the understanding advisors.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I really enjoy the people and community here. I feel like they really make my college experience worth it. So far, the academics are average to above average. There's not much competition within classes. The dorm food is either hit or miss depending on the day and the cafeteria. However, I really wish that the beach was more accessible, and that the city was less of a concrete jungle. Trees (aside from palm trees) are scarce, and there just isn't as much wildlife as I wanted. For transportation, you can buy a bus pass from the school, which is good, but it takes awhile to get from place to place, and Uber is expensive. Aside from that, I really do like CSULB.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

California State University - Long Beach is a commuter school and has limited on-campus housing. If you do plan to stay on campus, you’ll definitely become aware the party scene (if you weren’t already). Despite this, I enjoyed living on campus, just keep in mind that it’s never really quiet at parkside. I did find it hard to make friends being an out-of-state student but overall I enjoyed it. I had really good professors and love the school, just found it hard to connect with people (which is not normally an issue I have).

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I do love going to school here. There is plenty of opportunities to get free tutoring, meet with you professors during office hours, and there are also tons of great places to study around campus. It is clear that CSULB cares about student health as well because they are always new events to promote mental and physical health. If you live on campus the dorms are small and a most of them do not have air conditioning.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I love this school! Not many people can say that they go to a school in a beach city. I love that I can go to class and then the beach in the same day! The nightlife and extra activities that students can do outside the campus are plenty and are great for getting to know other classmates

What is your overall opinion of this school?

California State University-Long Beach is a very diverse campus made up of tons of extracurricular activities and organizations you can join, along with a very diverse student population from all over the United States and the world which helps expose you to many different mindsets and customs. The teachers, especially with smaller class sizes, seem to pay more attention and care a lot about the students and go the extra mile in explaining the material or anything a student may need help in. The campus is also expansive and doesn't feel like just apart of the city but completely separate and in its own little vacuum away from the outside world. If you want to be exposed to brilliant minds in a welcoming and friendly environment with plenty of things to do while learing with some very thoughtful and best in their field teachers California State University Long Beach is the place for you.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Overall, it is a great school. The dining hall and dorm rooms could use a little work. It would be nice if they offered dorms that were apartment-style. I enjoyed all of my professors and they always made it clear that they were there to HELP YOU. There were plenty of opportunities to get involved. The surrounding area is fun and there's a ton of job opportunities for young adults. The party life is pretty big. I personally didn't ever party and it never seemed like a big deal to other people. There isn't​ much pressure to be involved in partying.

Don’t get me wrong California State University Long Beach is awesome ! Just wish their policies and advisors were a little more clear. There are GREAT advisors but there are also not so great ones that can make you pull your hair out. Best rout is find one of those good advisors and enjoy college life while it lasts its great!

What is your overall opinion of this school?

The college is great place to experience the college life that many people are looking for. I have come to know many people and genuinely love going to class. The campus is still being improved upon and that is something I can’t help but love. I would recommend this college to anyone who can afford it and I promise they’ll love their time here.
