Swap Meets to Reopen at LBCC

As part of the City of Long Beach Health and Human Services Department’s revised order to transition to Stage 3 of re-opening California in the COVID-19 pandemic, two swap meets that use Long Beach City College as their venue will resume.

LBCC Statement on Current Events
George Floyd Protests

Dear Friends and Colleagues,

The past few days have been a painful reminder of a long-standing history of social and racial injustices that still affect us today. I’m sure you have seen the protests – some peaceful and some not.

As an institution of higher learning, Long Beach City College will always support the right of free speech and the right to peaceful protest.

Caring for LBCC Students in Need

With the closure of Long Beach City College’s campuses, access to the Viking Vault (LBCC’s food pantry) was also closed for students to visit.  

In its place, Student Services has been leading the effort to provide non-perishable food items to LBCC’s students in need through a grab-n-go distribution. Students have arrived at either campus on designated dates to pick-up their bags of food either by driving or walking up to the distribution area.
