    It is a chill environment overall. There is a lot of professors who care and yeah there is some who don't. However, those who do care, are super helpful in the future for your career and getting a letter of recommendation. The campus is clean, safe, and relaxed. There is always something to get for free, or activities going on in campus.

    CSULB is a beautiful campus and is unique because it is located in the middle of a diverse and busy city and is the only campus with a huge blue pyramid as its athletic arena! The campus offers plenty of extracurricular activities for students whether it may be social clubs, sports clubs, etc. If there was one bad thing to mention it would be that the parking lots are jam packed Monday through Thursday because it is mainly a commuter school.

    This school has such a great vibe, where the people are generally happy and the campus looks beautiful. The school will increasingly grow more prestigious but it's worth the money. Lots of opportunity to pursue interests, make friends, and develop academically awaits here.

    The campus is very nice and surrounded by a lot of nature and trees. There is a lot of walking and the campus is somewhat spread out but the walks are made enjoyable by the nature and pretty views. There are also a lot of hills and uphill incline but that is something easy to adjust to.

    CSULB is the top Cal State, and for good reason too. The environment has none of that hectic vibe you might experience elsewhere. That's the beauty of CSULB, that you still have cool, challenging, rigorous classes and programs, but none of the stressful drama!
