Cool campus, serine and calm place to recharge after a year’s work. This picturesque gardens provide the perfect climate to reflect and rejuvenate. Temperatures are in the mid sixties all while floating in pure sea breeze coming from the pacific waves only 3 miles away. Try it; there’s a Starbucks cafe too.
Visited for my sisters graduation and my god the campus is like a resort, beautiful flowers, succulents and palm trees. The library is out of the world overlooking the LA valley and lecture halls constructed to further enhance the learning environment. Wish I was a student here. Fed recommend this college to anyone.
