    I would recommend becoming involved in various clubs and organizations. Part of having a great college experience is meeting different people. CSULB is a huge campus that gives you the opportunity to meet a large variety of students.

    Always ask for help: never was I made fun of as a freshman for asking where things were, or how to get to them. Cal State Long Beach has a great sense of community, the feeling of we're all in this together. So ask for help, whether you're just looking around, trying to get a feel, or if you're on your way to your PoliSci 103 class. You'll get far at LB with a little help from one another.

    Keep up a high GPA, and work on the test scores. This school is selective considering the number of applications they receive yearly.

    The best way to open up to the school is to visit, and if you cannot, search online. Cal State Long Beach is a beautiful campus and even though it is not highly announced, it is still a great school to look at. They have many different programs and degrees to pick and choose from. If you don't know what to look at, they have a college for the undecided too! Since this is my first year here, I still have a long ways to go. However, I see a bright future ahead of me because of the professors and students here. Also, don't worry if you are the shy kind. It is easy to make friends here in college.
