Long Beach City College Top Questions

What's the one thing you wish someone had told you about freshman year?


To visit a counselor as soon as possible and make sure to sign up early!


I wish I had known that there was no reason to be nervous. I expected to be in classes that were going to be so hard but I am adapting well to all of my current classes. I am happy to say that everyone treats me with respect and I am so happy I chose to come here.


I wish I would have known what I want to major in. I still wish that I knew what that is, I'm stressed out because there are a lot of things I want to study but not what I want to have a career in. I'm scared that i'll make the wrong choices, choose the wrong classes or end up wasting all my time and money and get nowhere.


I wish I would have known that college doesn't have as much structure as high school. I also wish that I would have known that in college nothing is free.


I wish I had known about the services the school provides to help you succeed. When you are a new student you do not know much about the college and their programs because they are not widely announced and brought to the students attention.


The thing that I wish I would have known before coming to this school would have to be how to choose the correct classes that correspond to my intended major. I ended up taking extra courses that were not necessary for me to take and this took away from time I could have spent on required classes.


I had a brother who attended that school for three years and never received a Certificate or an Associate Degree. So with his experience it gave me an impression that community colleges don't work they just want money from the government. I still went to the college it never bothered me to go for an AA when I was fresh out of high school. I took a change in my life to take a step forward and I?m going for my AA and I should Graduate for Long Beach City College in Spring 2011 when I' am 21.
