California State University-Long Beach Top Questions

What do you brag about most when you tell your friends about your school?

Adrienne

When people ask if I enjoy the campus, I respond that it is a "commuter school" a lot of people commute to CSULB from Orange County and Los Angeles so it's a little bit of a different vibe. Almost similar to a larger community college campus.

Alejandro

I would talk to them about how easy it is to meet people who share similar interests as I did, in order to show them that in a school like Cal State Long Beach, loneliness is a choice. Trust me, I am a big gamer but also introverted, so I thought that it would be difficult to get along with people who are more outgoing and adventurous than I am. However, after one semester here, I have been able to make a couple of friends out of mutual interests, as well as the interactivity of the courses offered here.

Aaron

I tell my friends that my school is really big and that we are so close to the beach, SOOOOO close!

The experiences and memories still continue as I am getting my Masters Degree.

I keep an intellectual correspondence with some of the friends that I have met there. But I would like to say that because of Learning Alliance, I have a new found love for Philosophy, of desiring to obtain knowledge.

California State University, Long Beach is said to be one of the top universities in the nation. The professors are all professionals in the subject they teach.

When I talk about my school, I brag about the limited space or the accepting of applicants. Many people are rejected from this University, and it makes me feel as though though the University is truly searching for those with potential.

To name a few, Professor Karanga invented Kwanzaa, Erin Grumwell who is known for her teaching methods. Also, to name a few alumni's: Steve Martin and Steven Spieldberg.

Brianna

Although the campus is very large, you don't feel unnoticed. I tend to brag most about the location of the school, being near the beach, and the people i've met while i've attended. The beach is my home away from home and the area is so nice if you enjoy city life. I've met some great people that will be friends for life while at Long Beach, most of which were through living in the dorms on campus. It was the best experience that i've had thus far.
