Both my wife (70's) and my son (00's) are alum's. The campus covers a lot of ground, but is very walk/bike friendly. You get a nice sense on on campus community, but since it is in the middle of a large city (Long Beach) and next to an even larger city (LA) you are close to everything.We go back for... More

I am an international student at csulb taking my master's, and I honestly love it here. The campus is really modern, always sunny, there's a lot of clubs, a museum, the gym is amazing, we have three pools, etc. Go beach!

We came here to watch some sporting events and found ourselves walking the campus just for a nice stroll. There are several parklike settings that retain a natural feel in the midst of a modern academic setting. Every sports field is well maintained. Plenty of parking...pay attention to the meter requirements.

As a 1964 grad I still have fond memories of Cal-State Long Beach (Long Beach State when I started. The campus has faired quite well with the pyramid a real plus. It was crowded with the 9,000 students when I graduated and at 35,000 + I can imagine how crowded it is now. When I attended we referred to it... More

Long Beach State has a historic reputation. The Iconic Blue pyramid set a picturesque back drop as we did a quick drive by visit. We will register for the self guided tour.

Very nice campus to walk. Really interesting architecture --especially the pyramid and the gardens. Can be chaos when classes break but even that is fun for the vibe.
