Stopped by to see the Carpenters exhibit at the Richard and Karen Carpenters Performing Arts Theater. What a treat! Enjoyed see the gold records and the original memorabilia on their career. The building is magnificent.

We've visited this campus twice and find it very beautiful and a great place to go to college. It's in South Long Beach near Seal Beach area, etc. Lots of parking. Large university with lots of buildings and recreation areas, etc.
