California State University at Long Beach is located three miles from the Pacific Ocean and 25 miles from Los Angeles.  The University’s 323 beautifully landscaped acres are divided into an upper and lower campus and its sporting complex,

Walter pyramid, is the University’s most prominent landmark.  ‘The Beach’ is one of the largest and most diverse campuses in the CSU system and enrolls 29,226 undergraduates. The student body has an average GPA of 3.5, a mid-50% CR+M SAT score of 900-1150, and an ACT score of 18-24.  Long Beach accepts only 32% of its applicants and the 2010 minimum eligibility index for students out of the local service area was 3975.  84 undergraduate degrees are offered including one of the only accredited kinesiotherapy programs in the CSU system.  Majors with the highest enrollment are psychology, finance and criminal justice.

First-time freshmen are required to live in University Housing unless they are commuting from home.  Campus residence halls and 1 off-campus complex accommodate 2,400 students and approximately 22% of freshmen reside on campus.

Students have access to over 325 clubs and a new Student Wellness and Recreation Center which opened last year.  The Long Beach 49ers are NCAA Division 1 and the athletic department offers 18 varsity sports.  There is plenty to do in Long Beach and the surrounding area.  Huntington Beach, shopping, Disneyland and skiing are all nearby. And…students enjoy the year round sunshine …Go Beach!
