  • This is a strong university which has beautiful large grounds. I was accompanying someone who had business at the university and I thought I would visit the campus. I was very glad that I did. Lovely.

  • To the surprise of many, this is a flagship University in California covering a large swath of land and home to thousands of students.

  • My son did his MS here for two years. We couldn't see his university when he was studying and on his convocation in 2020 because of covid. So we decided to visit it now. The campus is so vast some say over 200 acres...that my son drove us through the university. Beautiful layout, the Japanese garden and the pyramid are landmarks of the university. As a state university it's very affordable. There are lots of student housing around. There are different sections of university for each branch of learning with huge buildings. The long beach bus service is free for students. According to my son the staff is great and so are the classes. Student recreation center and medical facilities free for students. My son enjoyed learning in this university and we were impressed to see it.....πŸ‘ŒπŸΌπŸ‘ŒπŸΌπŸ™‚πŸ™‚πŸ‘πŸ»
