Weather: The sun gives me so much energy and I love being able to dress how I want. The gorgeous weather makes my college experience so much more beautiful.

Academics: I'm a Costume Design student- our program is phenomenal! Our instructors are some of the best in the nation and we have an enormous studio work space, all the tools we need! Great contacts and job opportunities being so close to LA.

Off-Campus Housing: Most people live off-campus. I do, but not in Valencia- though I've considered moving closer. I live in LA and the commute is only 30 mins and I love my neighborhood so it works for me!

4 College Sophomore

Computers: I use my own computer- but if I needed one, I can use one in the Library or my Costume Design Lab, or a few other computer labs on campus. So they are available if needed.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Best decision I've ever make. It's superb.

Off-Campus Dining: I've dined off-campus a few times in the area, there are some options- not a ton. I commute in from LA, so I don't spend much time in the area outside of school.

Campus Strictness: I haven't really experienced being told I couldn't do something- But then again most people seem pretty honorable at the school- and its an Art school so we are encouraged to 'find our own path'.
