  • Unique Professors, Great Academic and Professional Counseling
  • Not enough financial backing from the CSU System
There are people (Professors and Students) who will make you love the school.

All you need to remember about this place is that you have to get out of your way to make things happen for you. No one is looking to find the next big thing here, but if you show yourself there will be support, great support.

There are other types of departments that's not mentioned here. The TV Department actually allows you to work in professional Commercial spots. While I was there I produced a TedX Conference video (9 speaker videos total).

People can help you with a lot of different things. Some Professors here are actual professionals with really interesting backgrounds. The regular "professor teaches because can't find work" does not completely apply here.

Being close to LA is a plus, and LB scene is pretty good too. I was renting an apartment in Downtown Los Angeles when I was studying there.

If you work hard while there, you will easily find a job there. In fact, I found one.

It's a very positive school, but don't expect a USC treatment. It's a fact that you have to have some money in this business, even while studying it. CSU system is second to the UC system. But again you get what you pay for. Keeping that in mind, and you think about saving money for your Masters Degree, you will find that CSULB has enough reputation to get you in anywhere else you might think of post graduation.

I am proud to have chosen this film school.
