The student-operated University Student Union is located at the crossroads of the campus, providing a focal point for the total campus community. Brotman Hall, near the union, houses many centralized campus services and administrative offices. There are also specialized facilities for engineering technology, art, industrial and interior design, music, molecular and life sciences and nursing as well as the International House student residence hall and meeting complex.
A state of the art building for the College of Business Administration, complete with decision support laboratories, multi-media capability and modern lecture halls, opened in 1991. The Department of Dance occupies quarters in the largest and best-equipped instructional dance facility in the nation.
In the fall of 2001, CSULB dedicated a new Hall of Science that is the largest capital building project in the campus’ history. The $110 million project encompasses nearly 165,000 gross square feet and completes the Natural Sciences Complex.
The striking beauty of the campus owes much to the planting of 3,200 Helen Borcher flowering peach trees that were donated by the citizens of Long Beach. Secluded landscape areas and buildings of appropriate scale help maintain a learning environment that encourages small group identification and personal privacy in the midst of some 36,000 individuals sharing the same site, on what is essentially a large urban campus.
In 1965, the International Sculpture Symposium contributed nine monumental pieces and designs to the university. These works received credits in 21 national and international publications, and in 1972 additional community funds in the form of a trust provided for the completion of the Carlson Memorial Tower, designed by French sculptor Andre Bloc.
The campus sculpture collection has continued to expand with the addition of works by artists such as Guy Dill, Michael Davis, Robert Irwin, Bryan Hunt and Woods Davy. These acquisitions were made possible by private donations and grants from the National Endowment for the Arts to the University Art Museum.
California State University Long Beach Reviews
キャンパスにどこから入っても奥にあるウォルターピラミッドが見えて存在感たっぷり。アメリカの大学らしく駐車場もたくさんあります。 more »No matter where you enter the campus, you can see the Walter Pyramid in the back and have plenty of presence. There are a lot of parking lots like the university in the United States, too.
Università grandissima. Un campus tenuto in modo ineccepibile, viali e giardini curatissimi (girano indisturbati scoiattoli), organizzazione eccezionale. Servizi, bar e parcheggi comodi e numerosi. more »Great University. A campus held in an impeccable way, well-manicured avenues and gardens (they run undisturbed squirrels), exceptional organization. Facilities, bars and lots of comfortable and numerous.
twice every week I go here for my speed run training. awesome view and has a great breakfast!
First thing I learned at this school was the importance of conformity. The director of the History Department (David Schaefer) told me not to fight any grades and that I should just conform in the future work place. Professors are petty, show favoritism, and ignore students they dislike. Conservative students are singled out the worst but it's pretty much anyone who disagrees with anything big or small. Also not a social campus. Lots of nerds that just show up, study and retreat home. I'll give it a 2 star just because the campus itself is gorgeous.
