One of only three true pyramids in the United States
The Walter Pyramid is home to the Long Beach State men's and women's volleyball teams and basketball teams. The structure's distinctive cobalt-blue exterior has permanently altered the city's skyline. It rises 18 stories above north campus and can be seen for miles in all directions. The Pyramid has provided a quantum leap in both the image and effectiveness of the Long Beach State athletic program.
