Kaitlyn Yu '24

The most rewarding part of this journey was meeting all of my amazing team members and friends, who really demonstrated the importance of having connection and support on campus!

Guadalupe Romero-Padilla '24

My time at The Beach has been a whirlwind. For the first two years, I majored in biology before realizing that political science was my true interest.

Simon Torwie '24

As a non-local, I truly appreciate the beauty of this city and its surroundings, and enjoy going to beaches, exploring downtown, and going south to visit Orange County coastal cities.

Mitali Jain '24

I started attending CSULB in the Fall of 2020 during the pandemic. Since everything was virtual, I was looking to get involved on campus in some way.

Jen Pino '24

Ultimately after graduation, I’d love to continue to work at JPL, either as a program manager or business analyst.

Justin Loop '24

CSULB has played a pivotal role in my personal and professional development, affording me opportunities that were once mere aspirations.

Isaak K. Nsuangani '23

At CSULB I have had the opportunity to collaborate with talented artists. Every class I took allowed me to expand my perspective and how I investigate the world around me.

Valerie Diaz '24

Cal State Long Beach has allowed me to grow as an individual and provided me with an immense amount of opportunities.

Catherine Lima '23

From the moment I stepped foot onto CSULB, I felt right at home. I transferred in from Santa Monica College for spring 2020. I joined the GenExcel program, and it really helped me to transition into the university as a first-generation student.

Dylan Sakamoto '20, MS '23

CSULB is an outstanding university with so much to offer, everything from the beautiful campus to the variety of degree programs offered; I truly could not see myself going anywhere else for either of my degrees! 

Brooke Larson '23

I feel lucky that not only did I find CSULB, but I found advisors and mentors that really helped me catch up and discover what it is I want to do professionally.

Daria Brooks '22

My experiences go all the way back to Fall 1974 as a freshman. I made lifelong friendships with folks in both the Radio/TV department and with the Comparative Literature department, and I learned how much I loved the entertainment field.
