A large open campus with updated sports facilities. One of the largest CSU campuses with?35,000 students but does not feel large. Large friday night crowd for women's soccer.

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.

Class of 1995 - BA Psychology so maybe I am biased, but CSULB is a great campus to visit. the Bookstore is huge and there are many art exhibits on campus. If you are lucky you can visit on a day they are having one of their art and craft sales where they sell items made by the students on... More

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.
