    CSU Long Beach is absolutely amazing with so many opportunities for everyone! I like to think of it as one of the best kept secrets of southern California; like a little oasis in the middle of a large city. Couldn't be happier than I am now, and can't wait for another 3 years at CSU Long Beach!

    It is a very relaxed atmosphere with a lot of people. It is easy to get lost, but easy to get a hang of it. There are a lot of opportunities available for students.

    California State University, Long Beach is a beautiful, peaceful campus. It is a commuter campus which means it is dead after classes are over and on the weekends unless you go to the greek parties. The people are overall nice and you are close to everything!

    The campus is large and there are a lot of strong programs; such as dance. The dorms on and off campus are very nice and seem bigger than they are. The school is located in a nice area.

    CSULB has a fantastic campus, and a wide variety of classes. The parking system is largely unbalanced. The extra curricular activities are plenty and welcoming.

    The large amount of diversity opens one's eyes to different cultures and perspectives. A beautiful campus with many resources for information such as programs for studying abroad to a University Student Union where you can study and or play games. Students seems friendly and everyone seems to be involved and focuses on their goals

    Long Beach State is a large, beautiful campus in sunny southern California. The campus is chock full of clubs and activities to get involved in and has an active Greek community. Walking through campus is a visual delight with its modern building designs, beautiful landscaping, and, of course, its iconic sports arena the Walter Pyramid.

    As far as campuses go, it is beautiful, helped by the fact that many sculptures adorn the campus in various places, it is like being in an open museum. There are always a group of jugglers and acrobats performing at some point in the huge grassy area right outside the bookstore, which is also a great place to relax in the shade on hot sunny days that Long Beach is prone to. The teachers can also be convinced on hot days if you are charming enough to take class outside to one of the many grassy areas giving you a nice escape from the same classroom walls every day, so I give Cal State Long Beach a 9/10.
