I graduated from a university and decided to go back to school to further my education. I am currently taking prerequisites at Long Beach City College to apply to PT school in the nearby future. I enjoy classes at LBCC because the professors there truly prepare students who plan on transferring! The science classes here are just as challenging as the ones at a university. People often have the misconception that a junior college is easier but its not the case, at least not here. Don't let this scare you! The professors here truly want you to succeed and they are willing to write you a letter of recommendation if needed. Although it is a great school, they should revamp their cafeteria! They should provide healthier options instead of burgers, fries, etc. What we put in our bodies now will affect our brain later!

Long Beach City College is a good college. My experience with the college overall have been good, lucky for me I was apart of the Puente program my first year making my experience great, although if it were not for this program I would rate this school average. The professors that I have taken were great, there are an array of resources though I wish there were more. The counselors are amazing, though getting to meet up with them is beyond difficult. I have never met any of the student body members which I find very odd, especially being that I am often at school. The college is well kept, maintenance wise. The math department has very poor teachers. There are only two professors that I enjoyed and connected well with. Apart from that I am happy to be a Long Beach City College student!
Overall I like Long Beach City College. However, there are some downfalls. One of them is the process to retake a class. I got a D in a math class that I didn't deserve. I went to the Dean of the school and filled out paperwork to retake the class. It's been almost a year now and I'm still not able to retake the class. However, I love a lot of the other faculty! My first semester was phenomenal due to the teachers I had. Although I'm almost done with my sophomore year now, they continue to help me with anything I need help with.
