Sending our daughter to start her college experience here and spent a couple of days on freshmen and parent orientation. Good 2 days for all. Looking forward to the journey.

Went to see an Ultimate Frisbee Tournament (My son is a Banana Slug). Pretty nice sports complex. Bathrooms are centrally located and parking is plentiful—but, you do have to pay for it, even on the weekends. That's my point. Make sure you pay for parking, kiosk takes credit cards and it's only about $5.

I got a first class education at CSULB. Although it is a commuter college (very few students live on campus) there is a great community surrounding the school. Although it can be difficult to get classes you need when you want them, the quality of education received is excellent! Well worth the cost!

This is a diverse university, with an incredible performing arts center named after the famous brother sister singing sensations the Carpenters. This university also has one of the best Japanese Gardens i have seen in a long time. Great place to visit and just walk around.

CSULB is a beautiful campus that is well kept and fun to explore. It is built on a hill, with most parking below, so be ready to walk, walk, walk. Make sure and check out the different art exhibits throughout the campus.

Cal State Long Beach is a quality university that is a fundamental part of the Long Beach community. We enjoy the plays, the art exhibits, the classes, the Earl Miller Japanese Garden and all that the university offers.

My wife and I both graduated from here in 1970. Just visited the old Alma Mater. It is famous for its pyramid sports venue and for its fabulous Japanese Gardens. Strolling the tree-studded campus, viewing the permanent modern art displays is a pleasant way to spend an afternoon.

CSULB is a wonderful value. My daughter is in her 4th year as a music major. I believe that by her choosing this university for her music performance degree and it has given her the opportunity to meet other talented musicians. Her music coach is a member of the LA Phil.
