My experience with Long Beach City College was an amazing! I was able to encounter different individuals that came from all types of backgrounds and cultures. I like that LBCC had diversity amongst the faculty and students. Also, the counselors as well as the professors were helpful in guiding me to the correct path into my career. They can improve on the campus food but overall my experience was excellent.

There are so many resources that people really do not utilize. The staff is so willing to help but so little people try to reach out -- people reach out! Everyone wants you to do better at the school. Some of the buildings are a bit outdated on the main campus, the PCC campus is a lot nicer with better facilities all around. Parking can be difficult at LAC campus because of people wanting to park closer. But there is always parking at the Vet's Stadium.
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!
