Campus Life


Enhancing the Campus Experience

Welcome to the office of Student Affairs, where it is our mission to create, encourage and support a positive, collegial learning environment whereby the educational goals of students and the College are enhanced. Innovative and traditional programs, events and activities have been developed which foster the opportunity for personal growth through learning, leadership development, shared governance, healthy competition, volunteerism, social interaction, and cultural exchange. 

Donning the cap and gown, crossing the stage, and turning the tassel: These are the traditions of a formal commencement ceremony that marks a milestone achieved and a new beginning. For nearly a century, Long Beach City College students have crossed this threshold to celebrate all they have accomplished as they leave the College armed with the education, training, and foundation to forge the future. Each year, LBCC welcomes thousands of students, faculty, staff, family members and friends to Veterans Stadium for the commencement ceremony.


Bakery & Bistro

The Long Beach City College Bakery & Bistro are operated by students in the Culinary Arts Department and are open to the public. Located in Building V, the Bakery & Bistro are part of a new instructional concept that includes instructional kitchens (restaurant, production, culinary skills, baking & pastry, multi-use, and demonstration), and LCD monitors for students to view faculty instruction close-up.


Viking Athletics

Since capturing its first state title in 1928, the Long Beach City College athletic program continues to make a name for itself both locally and nationally. While academics remain a constant emphasis at Long Beach City College, the institution is proud of its athletic program’s success. To date, Long Beach City College has won 16 national titles, seven runner-up national titles, 89 state titles, and 50 state runner-up titles.
