Thus far my experience has been very positive and enlightening with Long Beach city college. The atmospheric conditions are great. The staff is very helpful and polite. There is a great sense of helpfulness and comfort. It feels like family vibes, parking is easy and accessible as well as affordable campus is beautiful close to the beach and tons of good eats. Class rooms are recently updated and clean. The campus is well kept and there are great helpful tools around everywhere to help you succeed in your college career!

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!
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.
