What is your overall opinion of this school?

CSULB is a great school, the campus community and overall support is amazing. After attending this school for 5 years, it has become a home to me and has given me many opportunities that I have been able to take with me even after graduation. The wide variety of class selections has allowed me to take classes that have been extremely beneficial. Overall I would definitely​ recommended CSULB to anyone!

What is your overall opinion of this school?

HONEST REVIEW: I guess its like a normal California school in a city. Major commuter school, meaning nobody really sticks around. CSULB/ LBSU is better than a community college but not quite a well known University. People are in, get educated, get out. I dormed my first year and it was okay. Rooms were tiny and really not that many things to do. Nobody seemed to be that active. The sports teams are D1 and really good, but hardly anyone goes to the games. It is really disappointing nobody is REALLY into college here. I made a couple of friends but nobody really sticks around. The GE classes were easy af. I thought I was dumb in high school but with GE classes, I have a 4.0. I have come to the realization I am smarter than most people when I peer-review other people's essays. If your major is easy, it is probably really easy because you'll be stuck with people who don't know when the Civil War was or know what a preposition is. With my biology classes though, I am mid pack. Lots of smart people in there. I tried to get involved with clubs on campus but most of them are dead. You have to really be active to keep the club you're in alive. Most of the staff is super friendly. I loved most of my teachers and built relationships with many of them. The best way for you to really be involved with Long Beach State is by joining a Greek life. Rushing a fraternity or sorority is fun and I made a friends in there for the time I was in there. The longer I was in, the more I realized I was in the wrong group. Most of the people I was involved with in there were on academic probation because of poor grades or were in their 5th or 6th year. I looking for more of self-success and I didn't enjoy the hazing of being forced to drink the day before an exam. I guess we have a well balanced Greek system here though compared to other schools which only party. For the money of tuition, Long Beach State is definitely worth it. $3,200 of tuition at a 4 year university is a DEAL!

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I think it’s a pretty chill school and that it’s safe enough for students to enjoy the social life is a nice one for students who want to get each other. The campus is a beautiful place to be at even when it’s a little bit chilly . The classroom sizes are ok but it could be better.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

My professors are always well-educated and I trust that they are fully competent in teaching the material. All professors I have had are approachable and super friendly, as they care about their students as individuals. Grading and expectations are mostly fair while workload is at a necessary amount. The campus is beautiful and big enough to explore, but small enough to feel at home. Campus life is always interesting, as there is always something going on or many, many clubs to check out. Overall, I feel like a very educated person after every class I take and every person I meet.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I love going to school at CSULB but prospective students should be aware that it is primarily a commuter school. It is possible to get involved but it is not as easy as if you were to go to a private school. We have very limited on campus housing and the school does not have sponsored apartments or off campus housing.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I think it is a good school. Teachers are alwasy ready to help you learn. Teachers also have office hours so you can go to them with any questions you might have. Not only that we also have tutors that can help you with any subject, so not only you can get help from teachers you also can get help from others. In addition we have a library that has group floors and quiet floors. In my overall opinion I think that this school is an amazing school and that they really do care about the education for their students. I’m glad to be attending this school because I feel that I’m actually learning the material, while other schools don’t do the extra mile that these schools do.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

As a first year student at California State University Long Beach, I can say that my time residing within the university will consist of, an adventure that lies within each day spent on and off campus. For, there has yet to be a dull day within CSULB.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I have lived in Long Beach all of my life, so I am thoroughly invested and knowledgeable of the culture here. Obviously, California State University- Long Beach would be apart of that culture. I have always believed it to be a great school that many locals have taken advantage of. This school is one of the best across the nation and there is constantly improvements being made across the campus. There is a multitude of things that students and even residents of Long Beach that they can partake in; whether it's supporting the local basketball team in the Walter Pyramid, participating in Imagine Beach 2030, or visiting our beautiful Japanese Garden.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I’m not from the area, but this school has a little bit of everything. It’s extremely diverse in all aspects and I love that. It is also a cheaper option for college which is very nice. The school has some great academics, but not very many clubs even though the student population is huge.
