Student at This School - Grad Year 2015

Overall Rating

This school is great. I have no words to explain the experience. I like everything about this campus. I had a choice between University of California Santa Cruz and California State University of Long beach. I am so grateful that I chose Long Beach over Santa Cruz. The Long Beach campus is just great. I explore something new everyday. I like this campus so much I am thinking of doing my further studies of Physical Therapist here.

Student at This School - Grad Year 2016

Overall Rating

I think Cal State Long Beach is a great school to attend, the atmosphere here is very inviting. Everything seems to be very accessible for a student and a fun fact some students may like is the fact that students currently attending CSULB have free transportation when using any of the LBT buses which for me, a current freshman is very useful. So is the library here and then mere fact that whenever I need assistance whether homework wise or just a spontaneous question I have different resources on campus to rely on. I as a current student love CSULB and plan to attend here the 4 years, also dorm life here is amazing especially here in International house, because one gets to meet new people, native or foreign and it is a wonderful experience to have.
