Go Beach!

Posted by Annette

When the time came for me to transfer from community college, I knew that California State University, Long Beach was my number one choice. After a bit of research, I found that CSULB had a respected Communication Studies program that was the perfect fit for me. That said, I made my studies a priority so that I would be accepted into CSULB.

Eventually, I was accepted into CSULB’s Communication Studies major and I was ecstatic. I remember calling my mom right away after I received the email and writing a very exciting Facebook post to share with my friends and family. Throughout my time at CSULB, I have made many new friends, established great relationships with the faculty in my department and grown as a person overall.

California State University, Long Beach is one of the larger campuses in the CSU system and has a variety of majors to choose from. There is always something going on, whether it be Week of Welcome for new students, a sporting event or other activities put on by Associated Students Inc. (ASI). There are many opportunities to get involved on campus, such as clubs, intramural sports and the Greek System. As a graduating senior, I am sad that my experience at CSULB is coming to an end. I would encourage all aspiring college students to check out CSULB. Go Beach!

Connect with Professors

Posted by Annette

An important tip that I offer to incoming college students is to establish positive relationships with your professors. It allows them to get to know you better as a student. If you are in a large class, it might be hard for your professor to connect with you.

 

A great starting point to building a relationship with your professor is by visiting their office hours, which should be stated in the first class session of the semester. Visiting office hours is beneficial because your professors can give more in-depth feedback on your course work and even provide future career advice. In my own experience, I have found the professors in my department to be very helpful in my academic and professional career.

Work With Others

Posted by Lourd Ebuen

With school comes work. With work comes stress.

 

The workload can vary from student to student, and many times, it gets hard for us to just sit and work. This is where discipline plays a key role in succeeding in school. However, disciplining yourself to work can be tough at times. So find someone to work with!

 

Working with a colleague that is interested in the same field as you can make it easier to focus and can help relieve the stress that comes from a heavy workload. It is important to work with highly motivated students because it not only motivates you to get work done, but it ultimately builds discipline and prepares you for the field you are pursuing while you learn from others.
