Degree: Psychology
Graduation Year: 2017

Overall, this college is a baseline bargain. You get what you pay for. Most professors are passionate and thoroughly knowledgeable about the subjects they are teaching, however; there were quite a few who were incompetent. Most classes, even the most interesting, do not seem to be geared to give you knowledge needed to succeed in the working world. Once you reach your upper division courses, college and the education you receive is exciting, somewhat helpful, and downright fun. Upper division is where your wings will really spread and the professors are good enough to help you soar. I will encourage all new students to take at least one 1 unit Kinesiology course every semester. This will be a fun, constructive way to decompress from your more rigorous classes. The campus always feels safe, even late at night and everyone is friendly. Beware the psycho religious screamers! Every spring without fail, handfuls of individuals will stand on the lawns in upper campus and scream hateful messages at everyone who is around. Do not engage these people, they only want to get assaulted by a student so they can sue the school. In other words, I honestly enjoyed my time here, I just wish I spent more time on campus and had cultivated a college community. Good luck!

Degree: Chemistry
Graduation Year: 2013

California State University, Long Beach is one of the best schools out there! It helped me make friends that I will have for the rest of my life and the science department is amazing! It helped me get to where I am today which is working on my masters degree, now in Massachusetts! I have contacts that have helped me get to where I am now and the program I was in led me to a great career right after graduation. The professors are amazing and take all the time you need to help you succeed. Choosing to go to this school was one of the best decisions I have ever made and I could not recommend it enough to others. There are so many great resources to take advantage of and it is also in one of the best cities in the country! CSULB shaped who I am and I am so thankful for the opportunities I had and still have because of it.

Degree: Nursing
Graduation Year: 2007

Great on campus program. It definitely prepares you for real RN situations. Clinical rotations relevant with lots of hands on experience. Instructors willing to help. A wide range of nursing students attended, for example, there were students who were coming from a community college, and lots of students were older in age.

Degree: Chinese Studies
Graduation Year: 2007

My college is a commuter school so be prepared to have a more difficult time making new friends because dorm space is limited. You can make a great number of friends but you'll have to work harder than at a traditional school where everyone lives on campus.

Degree: Communications

It was a great experience. Try community first couple years. It's not impt to go right after but when ready and when you are finish quick and consider post grad school.

Degree: Mechanical Engineering
Graduation Year: 2015

CSULB is known as a commuter school. Students from the LA area drive to school on a daily basis, making it a bit difficult to meet people at first unless you join an organization, then it's easy to meet people with similar interests. As far as the classes go for mechanical engineering, I feel as though they helped prepare me for my career and in preparing me for grad school in the near future. I enjoyed my time and experience at CSULB and would definitely recommend it.
