Student Responses to Review Topic: Am I Enjoying Being Here

  • Amara from Ojai, CA
  • I am a current student here

    It's small and rural, which is nice for me because I'm a quiet person and I like to be in a place that's calm. The students are really nice too and those living on campus have a tight community and seem to have fun. Being a commuter, I feel a bit left out of the loop, but still have fun.

    I could easily live here. The housing was modern and affordable. The campus is close to Metro-link trains to get back and forth from Los Angeles as well as home, which is in Riverside California.

    I like living on campus because it's like a home away from home, but since the school is out in the middle of a bunch of farm fields, it can get a little boring. The beach is near by though which is nice.

    the school is spacious and big. it practically owns its own mountain! the programs offered are good and allow for exploration. the classes are small and allow you and you teacher to get to know each other.
