This is my first full year at Long Beach City College. One thing I loved about the school was the surplus of opportunities it provides, which are all inclusive! Help is definitely there when you need it, starting with the Long Beach College Promise and Viking Advantage. I wouldn't have found my passion if I had decided to attend college elsewhere. One thing I would like to see change however, is the emphasis on immersing all students in student life and an attempt to limit the amount of foot traffic due to petitioners.

Great inviting environment to be in, the surrounding area is very nice and safe for students to be in. Professors can be very helpful and understanding, especially in the math department! Services available to students include free tutoring sessions in areas such as chemistry and mathematics, both of which can become extremely beneficial when struggling.
While attending Long Beach City college, I have had the opportunity to have all great teachers throughout my two years attending. The professors are always helpful and intrigued with their teachings. I have also had many teachers be very helpful with offering letter of recommendations and tools to applying for transfer. The Long Beach City college campus is very safe day and night. They also keep their facilities very clean. Long Beach city college also does a great job at offering clubs and organizations for individuals seeking extracurricular activities for interests or applications requirements. Overall, I believe Long Beach City College is a great two year institution that allows many individuals to thrive in their academics.
