What is your overall opinion of this school?

I think Long Beach is a nice campus and overall a good university. Professors are nice and welcoming. They are available and flexible to help out students when they ask for help. Also, many of the advisors are nice and help students to best of their ability.The school is always renovating and something is happening. The bad thing about Long Beach is parking. The permit for a semester is about $150 and it is very difficult to find parking. It would be best to take the bus or park off campus and bike to campus. Class sizes are average about 20-30 students. For lecture halls, there are more students but it is not that bad. The campus has many convenience stores accessible and a few food places. There are many places to study which I like since I use my time more useful.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

California State University-Long Beach is an absolutely amazing school! The people are very friendly and everyone seems to fit in. Even though it is a pretty big school it's not hard to get your way around and to your classes on time. The professors are super nice and always make time for their students even when they are very busy. This had been my dream school since I first set foot on it back in my elementary schools days and now I am able to live the dream of actually being here.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Its a good school. Faculty is very knowledgeable. Only problem is the computer science department is very unorganized. They tend to have miscommunication with the students regarding what classes a student needs to take, but the classes themselves are very well structured.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Overall, I really enjoy CSULB. The campus is not too large, but there is an incline that separates the two parts of campus that provides plenty of walking exercise. When it comes to the students, it seems hard to make friends because it is a big commuter school. Since I commute, I don't have many friends outside of my major, but I know plenty of people who make friends through greek life, student government, clubs, sports, and teams. There are definitely ways to get involved at CSULB, it just may seem hard to jump in at first. As a dance science major, I have gotten to use a variety of the facilities at CSULB, and they're not bad overall. There are definitely a couple of old buildings that I have not been into that probably need some attention, but CSULB is pretty good at updating the infrastructure and providing current resources to their students. I don't know much about dorm life because I am a commuter, but I have visited them and they are quite small. I have had no problems commuting to CSULB, as they provide shuttles and a bus pass for us to use. As for the staff and faculty, I have pretty much only had pleasant encounters when asking questions and seeking more help from professors. Overall, the school is warm and welcoming, and if you want to be social, there are opportunities. On the other hand, if you just want to get your degree and go, that is also a possibility. Obviously there will always be room to improve, but I feel that CSULB is trying to continue to take steps in the right direction to please the community.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

The school is beautiful and there’s always something popping off. I love being apart of the ‘sharks’ I couldn’t imagine myself anywhere else!! Academically I would say the school pushes all students of all kinds to obtain greatness in their own standards. Social life is busy and fun, and I love meeting others in my class! Love long beach !!

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.
