While early reports Tuesday quoted police saying that 31 people had been arrested last night, NBC News says it has more recent data showing 78 arrests.
I don’t usually discuss current events on here but I feel it is necessary for every American citizen to take some time out of their day and read what is happening in Ferguson, MO.
I love #longbeach! This has been my entire summer: eat, relax, move in with the person I love, and enjoy life. (at Rosie’s Dog Beach)
lovelylaceface asked: Hello there! I just stumbled across your blog and was so excited to find you are doing the MSW program at CSULB! I have been researching MSW programs in southern California and have found myself drawn to long beach, though I really know very little about the program itself. I'm wondering what made you decide on CSULB and what you're enjoying (and not enjoying) about the program/ the school/ anything so far. I would really love to hear as much input as you're willing to share!
Hello! I apologize for the late response. Let me tell you one thing about any MSW program: they will consume your time until you graduate. As you can see how long it took me to respond to your post, you can imagine how much of an effort and dedication a person must contain to be in this field and program.
I applied to three different programs: SFSU, CSULB, and CSULA. I’m originally from LA so the latter two are both automatic choices since they were closer to my family. SFSU was an option for me since I was in my undergrad across the bay from Daly City and wished to stay up there at that time. SFSU and CSULB are both wonderful schools and are the best within California for MSW. They are both ranked highly and it appears that Long Beach has much more recognition and high standard.
To be honest, I am enjoying my cohort. I currently live with one of my fellow classmates and have become best friends who can discuss problems at internship ( you will do that a lot, if you decide to complete your graduate studies). I do not necessarily enjoy the fact my program makes it mandatory to write a thesis for our 2nd year, but I believe we are the last cohort that must meet this requirement.
If you have any other questions please do not hesitate in asking. Again I’m sorry about the last response. I was bombarded with school that has consumed my last year and just finished last Friday. Let me know where you’re headed to for the Fall!
