    I really enjoy attending such a beautiful community college. The scenery is just lovely and between classes you can eat one of the many cafes overlooking the beach or bring your surf board along and take in a few rides.

    Whether you are from San Francisco, Orange Country or even out-of-state or -country, you will feel welcome here. With State Street directly south and the infamous Isla Vista to your north, you should never run out of something to do. Going out to the movies or out with your friends is always an option, but having the scenery is what always takes everyones breath away. Located right on the beach, tanning, surfing, and reading on the sand is highly encouraged to relax after studying. Palm trees, beautiful weather, and an amazing variety of life will allow you to never see the same thing twice.
