What is your overall opinion of this school?

CSULB is a great community in a very diverse city. You'll meet different people from all different kinds of different bakcgrounds, with different beliefs and get to explore the different cultures and traditions around you in campus events. There's many different cultural events on campus. You can visit our Japanese Garden, overall it has been a pretty great experience. I'm about to start my sophomore year.

CSULB

I've had an amazing experience at CSULB so far. Most of the people I've met are very friendly, accommodating, and helpful. Most of my teachers are very prepared, professional, and effective. The dorms aren't the best; our building has roach problems and there's no air conditioning. They are also pretty dated.

CSULB: Welcome to the Beach

I have been attending CSULB since I've graduated high school. The people on campus and faculty are friendly and willing to lend a hand. Faculty make education a priority so most classes may have attendance policies to ensure a great education. I appreciate the Greek life on campus and have been in a sorority since my first year. The campus is gorgeous and there's many food options, places to study, and the beach is accessible when you get out of class.

Like a second home

The first time I stepped on campus, I was immediately welcomed by several friendly people. The campus itself is huge and lively, not every moment is boring. Teachers are willing to help you out and encourage you to do better. Also, there's several activities throughout the week and there's always something to do. As a big plus, CSULB is focused on the students' safety and there is a low tolerance on discrimination. I'm satisfied on my college choice.

You should apply. Trust me.

My first year here. Such friendly students, faculty, staff... Everyone is here for the same reason: to learn about the things we're interested in and make a mark on the world. My peers keep me inspired and focused. It's hard to lose sight of your goal when you go to CSULB :)

Great school!

A very good school overall, however not very much socialization happens outside of dorms (around 90% of students commute). If you really want to get involved though you definitely can, as there are many clubs and other activities you can partake in at just about any time during the school year. The professors are average, so just look for the good ones and you should be okay! Also as a side note, this is a HUGE school, so be prepared to walk miles a day or take the school's free shuttle to get around to classes. As another side note, if you're commuting, there is NO PARKING whatsoever after about 10:00 am. Parking fills up faster than you can say Long Beach so beware!! Good luck!

Describe how your school looks to someone who's never seen it.

CSULB is a school with thousands of students that is divided into smaller, tight knit communities due to various colleges and majors, that provide support for each student academically, socially and emotionally.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

Take a deep breath. In the whirlwind of the first weeks of college, you will likely be inundated by syllabi from unfamiliar professors, requests from new roommates, invitations to social activities, and maps trying to get to class. You will meet new people, learn new routines, and discover new characteristics about yourself. It is amazing. Take each essay, project, and assignment as they come. Go to your professors' office hours, they want to help you. As often as you can, take classes that fulfill requirements, but also intrigue you. Embrace the fact that you will be lost, literally and figuratively, in classes and on campus. You are now competing against yourself. It is up to you to get the most out of your education; you wil not be coddled and you will be held accountable. Enjoy the ride. College can be arduous at times, but it is worth it. You are living your purpose. You are there for a reason. You are on your own parth to success and college is a stop along that road. So in those moments, in which you find yourself on the verge of tears, ready to throw in the towel... take a deep breath.

What's the most frustrating thing about your school?

The parking situation-- there are only parking lots for students at the bottom of campus, so if you have classes at the top of campus, you have to walk about a mile (or take the shuttle) to class. It would have been nice to have parking all around the campus. Also, the lack of financial aid to students they consider "well-off" even when there was no financial support given from the family. Wish they could consider financial aid rewards to people who may not appear to be underpriveleged, but that are!
