My classes have been good so far, although I am not able to attend the learning center during the week to do my required assignments, having the flexibility to go on the weekends is really great! I wish they had more courses on the weekend for math and science classes that require lab work. Not all upper division classes have the same availability for working students. Having more classes and flexibility would be awesome!
Review Long Beach City College
Great Communications program! Intercultural Comm is especially amazing because of the school's diversity. Research your professors to make sure you get good ones (put extra effort into getting someone down-to-earth for Interpersonal Comm.). Don't go for the "easy" professors -- in Communications courses, that's just a nice word for boring. More than any other skill, Communications is needed in more ways and places than any other. The skills you gain in the program can carry you farther in your career than the degree itself.
When I first started attending Long Beach City College, it was a terrifying experience for me. I didn't have any friends to help me figure anything out. Every student there seemed to be minding their own business and not caring about interacting. The environment was not welcoming, and I felt lonely and intimidated by everyone. Everything changed as soon as I joined the theater department one year and a half later. Theater people are amazing and welcomed me so easily. I finally made friends and they are all relatively interested in the same career path as me. Now I feel completely at home in the theater department and I'm very happy there.
