College Student

Greek Life: I am not a part of the Greek system and I don't really know much about it.

College Student

Campus Housing: I don't live on campus so I don't really know much about it.

4 College Student

Academics: They really try to help non-traditional students, including those with learning issues, which I find extremely helpful. Everyone is super helpful.

3 College Student

Academics: There's not a ton of options because its a small school but for what it is, it has what I'm interested in.

5 College Student

Local Atmosphere: The weather makes LA probably one of the best places to go to school. There's something for everyone--the beach, venice, silverlake, art galleries, museums etc.

2 College Student

Nightlife: I don't really do nightlife on AJU. If I want to go out I go to Hollywood with friends.

2 College Student

Off-Campus Housing: Its Los Angeles so pretty much everything around AJU is expensive (especially since its in Bel Air). I live like 30 minutes away with moderate traffic, way cheaper.

4 College Student

Drug Safety: There's really not much drug use going on, or at least I don't see it.

3 College Student

Diversity: Its the American JEWISH University, obviously there's not going to be a whole lot of diversity on campus. But for what it is, its ok.

3 College Student

Campus Strictness: The school is very small, so many of the policies that affect other bigger schools are irrelevant here.

2 College Student

Athletics: Athletics are not a big part of the AJU, not at all like a state school.

4 College Freshman

Parking: Sometimes it is hard to find a spot but its not that bad when comparing to other places. No cost to park at AJU so thats a perk!

4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: I always feel very safe on campus! AJU is also very small so you will never get lost or anything like you could at a big school!

5 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: There are always cool restaurants to go try around here!

2 College Freshman

Computers: Our school is not technologically savvy. The computers we can use in the lab and dinosaur computers! If you are going to come here bring your own computer!

2 College Freshman

Campus Dining: The hours are

7am - 930am for breakfast
12-1pm for lunch
5pm-7pm for dinner

the food kinda sucks but some days you will be surprised and it will be yummy on other days

4 College Freshman

Weather: There weather here is always nice! We are in cali!!!

3 College Freshman

Campus Strictness: The campus is really not all that strict. You will get in trouble if you do something really bad but in all honesty I hav not heard anything too extreme.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Housing is one good thing about AJU. The rooms are nice and big and it is always quiet so you can get work done! One thing is that there are not too many people living on campus so there is basically no residential life making it not your normal college dorming experience.

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: You have to be 21 or over, or have over 60 credits, to live off campus. There are apartment buildings on campus as well, which you can rent after you turn 21. The availabilty of becoming a commuter is extremely accessible and comfortable, as this school is located in the middle of the city and the valley. You can live in Beverly Hills or Sherman Oaks and still get to school in ten minutes.

5 College Freshman

Majors: I am a psychology major, which automatically gave me THE BEST advisor and head of major. This woman is also my professor for all of the psychology classes I take, which is amazing. I enjoy every single class I take, whether it has to do with my major or not. None of my classes are boring nor are they tedious, I truly get excited walking into even my democracy class, which may be hard to believe. I would do it all over again!

4 College Freshman

Drug Safety: There will always be someone doing drugs or drinking, anywhere you go. But at this school, there is no peer pressure and no one will treat you differently if you don't do drugs or drink. I, personally, do not drink or do drugs, and I learned to have a wonderul time without them! Especailly because there are such fun activities on campus throughout the week and weekends.

2 College Freshman

Scholarships: The financial aid process went decently smooth. MASA, an organization supporting groups in Israel gave everyone on the program a grant for signing up prior to a certain date. Other than that, this program did not offer a ton of financial aid.

Facilities: Young Judea Year Course- Inside Scoop – I'm taking this first year of college to explore a country and get college credit at the same time. I'm learning a lot and have great teachers. Socially, its a small group so everyone gets really close with one another. I see the same people in all of my classes. We take trips together to different parts of the country to see first hand what we have learned that week in class. These same kids I go out with on the weekends and go on other trips such as camping or to stay a night in a new city. The facilities available are mediocre, but they satisfy my needs. The classrooms are simple and small, but perfect for the class sizes. I live about a 20 minute walk from my friends apartments, but can easily take a bus. I see who i want to see every day. There are unique opportunities every day to explore and learn about Israel. For example, today, on the anniversary of the assassination of former Prime Minister Yitzchak Rabin, we took a trip to the place he got shot, and learned about his life. After we went and paid our respects at his memorial in Tel Aviv. Rather than sitting in a classroom only and learning about this from a textbook, we went to the place and learned hands on.

College Freshman

Computers: I'm currently studying through the American Jewish University on a program called Young Judea Year Course, where I am studying in Israel. The computers available to us right now are through the office and there are only a handful available. They have everything I need though, are fast, always have good connection and there is printing easily accessible to me.
