WHAT I LIKED

CSULB has supportive professors and advisors, great facilities, and is located at a great spot in the city. Cal State Long Beach has it all, it is just up to you to take advantage of all the amenities and resources.

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

Sometimes main entrees at the dining halls are not the healthiest. Besides the salad bar and sandwich bar, vegan and vegetarian options are not always the best.

WHAT I LIKED

The people on campus are very outgoing and willing to help. The quality of education is good and you can tell that the professors really want you to succeed. The nursing program at CSULB is very individualized and engaging.

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

The commute is limited and having a car is pretty essential. The downside is that parking on campus is difficult.

WHAT I LIKED

CSULB is becoming a sought-after experience. The campus location puts you in a prime location of community, events, dining, and department stores such as Target. It is perfect for a commuter, which I was, as it has many unique opportunities for campus involvement in all areas of life. If I could, II would continue my education at California State University, Long Beach. If I wasn't pursuing a Juris Doctor degree, I would be obtaining a graduate degree from this university.

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

The term upper and the lower campus is just what it sounds like: a big hill. The campus is pedestrian-friendly for those who opt out of bringing a bike or skateboard. Nevertheless, those campus walks are peaceful and serene. There are many opportunities to find quiet study areas other than the library.

WHAT I LIKED

The resources they provide and the many clubs you can attend. My favorite place is the student union where students can study and relax at the same time by playing pool, table tennis, and bowling.

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

All campuses have different obstacles, mine is how big the campus is and the walking commute from one place to another is a bit difficult, especially the uphill buildings

WHAT I LIKED

CSULB has a very diverse environment that feels very accepting. All the professors I've had have shown so much passion for teaching which has helped me become the student that I am today. The nursing program has been an amazing experience with amazing professors, classmates, and clinical sites that have helped me gain so much experience and knowledge about nursing. I highly recommend CSULB to any students who are interested in pursuing nursing.

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

Although the nursing program is amazing, it is highly competitive to get into. Therefore, I recommend taking the required pre-reqs and aiming for an A in these classes. I also recommend getting a high grade on the TEAs. These, along with volunteer experience will help you have a better chance of getting into the program.
