Excellent Campus

Despite being a large University, this place is well organized and traffic is not an issue. Buildings are easy to locate and people are friendly.

I'm not sure what there is to really see or do on this campus. It's one of the better managed and funded CSU campuses. My daughter has been especially well treated by their track coach, so I have nothing but praise for the staff that I've met.

Good place to learn about Native American People and see some of the dances and just enjoy. Food and handmade items are sold. There is information on Native American study the university has to off. Its a good place to spend a day, eat great food and learn something new.

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.

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.
