Local Atmosphere: PLNU is the closest university to the beach in all of California. The town is very friendly and relaxed; a typical beach town.

Local Atmosphere: Point Loma is an incredible place to live. Not only is it right on the water, but everyone is so friendly and down to earth. It is a very safe place with a lot of fun things to do. Point Loma is a fantastic place to live and I could see myself living here after college and even raising my kids here.
