What Students Are Saying

3.73 Average Rating
It is not a surprise that, California State University Long Beach, one of the best Universities in southern California asks for nothing but the best from the students attending and applying. The university highly values educational opportunity, excellence, diversity, integrity, and service. Noted as one of the nations 50 Best Value public universities by the Princeton Review, it become evident that one can attend the university and receive a highly valued degree. I give my university five golden starts for their excellent work in educating students for more than fifty years.

Classes are accurate to how high they are in their division. For example 100 class is going to be a breeze compared to a 472 level class, so take that into consideration when picking classes. Professors are understanding at Long Beach, they get it that you have a million things to do, so they cut slack on assignments, but are absolutely fantastic at delivering material that is essential and accessible during lectures and discussions. They expect the best out of you, without overwhelming you too much.

You'll want to set aside a good amount of study time per day. The library is pretty quiet, so carve out a space there.
