California State University-Long Beach Reviews
Student & Graduate Reviews (23)
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.
I love it! The campus is beautiful and my professors were all professionals in their fields,which was helpful in my field. They're more like friends than professors and open minded and fun. I love CSULB!
I thought it was a great campus and I met some really amazing people. There are a lot of different backgrounds at that school and a lot of great professors.
CSU Long Beach is so great! All of my professors were absolutely amazing. The campus is super big, so be prepared to get your exercise in!
Excellent school with high quality professors and high academic standards. Great dedication to students with great activities available and awesome campus life. Also, the best city in LA county, try Roscoe's Chicken & Waffles. Go Beach!
The teachers are well informed. With modern classes involving hands on training.
I thought long beach was a good school with a few pretty awesome professors. I went to school to get a piece of paper (diploma) and long beach fit the bill.
CSULB is an extremely diverse campus filled with people and faculty from all over the world. You will see returning students, exchange students, off-campus students, on-campus students, etc. As such, classes are catered to every need and interest; there are a wide range of classes to choose from: from surfing to biochemistry. Faculty is caring and would like to see you succeed and such is reflected in their teaching methods and styles.
Attending CSULB School of Social Work part-time program was one of the greatest experiences of my life. The professors really care about your future and really helped prepare me for my future as a social worker. Also, my colleagues and fellow classmates were so helpful and experienced and helped me become the best social worker that I can be. If you are thinking about applying to an MSW program, long beach is the way to go. You get the best bang for your buck!!
I transferred to CSULB to save money on both tuition an living costs. It is a beautiful, large campus with lots of greenery, a great student union and a number of clubs and student organizations to join. This is, however the second university that I have attended to get my degree in environmental science, and I have to say that the program here is much less hands-on than my other CSU campus. Yes, the instructors are, for the most part, very knowledgeable and helpful and are very dedicated to their subject and students. However, most of the work happens in the classroom and the learning comes from textbooks rather than field-work. Where I did transects and tagged insects before, I now spend a lot of time talking about how to tag and how to do a transects without actually doing it. I know people on other degree paths who love CSULB and what they have to offer, but I would truly appreciate more field time and less classroom time.
