OLLI offers widely varied courses of interest to persons 50 years of age or older. There is no academic prerequisite for admission or to participate in the classes, just a... More

I graduated from California State University Long Beach. My siblings graduation ceremony would bring me back here. This university continues to maintain it's campus, everybody is so friendly and l continued to love the walk from the parking lot. I love seeing the new trees and changes on the campus. There's always something new!

Our son was studying here at the CSULB and we spent many hours ferrying him back and forward whilst we were there with him on vacation. The campus is beautiful and the students are so lucky to have such a great facility to study in.

CSULB is like a big out-of-state expensive college without the price tag. The whole layout of the campus is cozy and easy to access. CSULB is a tiny city in itself with; dorms, well-equipped student Union, a Japanese garden, a state-of-the-arts gym, full-staffed police station, professional tennis courts, world known soccer fields, famous blue 18-story Walter pyramid and an Olympic...
