Sydney - 05/29/2024

Honestly, for most people here including myself, this place is merely a stepping stone as we head for university. Very few people are here to stay which makes the social scene small to non-existent. During my time here, I have tried to hang out in the student union and do work, but unfortunately it often time ends up smelling like weed and/or being too loud to do any real work. At least the campus police presence is there so I don't have to fear walking at night as much. There is quite the crime presence in Long Beach though.

Alony - 05/25/2022

I think it will be a great way to introduce myself to higher learning starting here. So far everything has been smooth sailing. From applying, to counselors, emailing financial aid office, everything has been great so far. I can not wait to fully join.

Vanessa - 06/23/2021

My biggest issue with Long Beach City College is the inaccessibility to counselors. I ultimately quit 6 years ago because a counselor asked me to pay for a counseling website after talking to him instead of giving me academic guidance right then and there. This time around, it's still impossible to get an appointment, it's not different than before COVID. I believe I figured out my path on my own but still need a counselor to confirm. Here's hoping.

yochabell - 09/12/2020

I have been attending LBCC for two years to complete my general education and so far I have loved my time there. Due to the COVID-19 Pandemic, I am attending online school. It has been definitely different but I am very lucky to have professors who are always reaching out and keeping everyone updated on classwork.

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

    Advice to self would be the following: Take your SAT/ACT while in High School, then you will save time and money in college, because you may not need all the classes if you do well on your SAT/ACT. With high scores on the SAT/ACT may also make it easier to transfer to a college of your choice straight out of High School without going to a junior college first to raise your G.P.A. Maintaining a good G.P.A in High School is essential because they can transfer over as credits once you enroll in college, also saving valuable time. Apply for scholarships while still in High School, so that when it's time to graduate from High School the money will be readily available for you. I would also advise myself to apply to colleges during my senior year and gather all of the information before submitting my application, because there are application fees and just because certain colleges may meet your needs more than others. While in High School , join clubs, sports, or do community service. Colleges are interested in students who are active and show dedication.
