Campus Housing: The housing quality varies greatly depending on what building you are placed in. The upper class men buildings have great views and the overall quality is great, but the freshman and sophomore housing is much worse.

5 College Junior

Off-Campus Housing: Getting a place off campus it a lot cheaper then on campus

Athletics: Nobody really cares about the sports teams here. They are fun to do if you enjoy the sport and want to stay in shape though.

Facilities: Lots of on campus workstudy jobs. As long as you have workstudy you can get your money.

Scholarships: They will not provide us enough support and I may have to transfer if my family cannot make ends meet.

5 College Senior

Scholarships: Very helpful and knowledgable staff

College Senior

Nightlife: Friends congregate, usually at each others' houses. Bar reviews are fairly frequent and offer an opportunity to meet alumni and other members of the community.

4 College Senior

Overall Experience: Very school spirited and interested in the success of the school through the success of the students.

4 College Senior

Local Atmosphere: Activities are a plenty for ANY type of interest. Atmosphere is usually vibrant yet quite. Orange County has a large population, but there are no large skyscrapers. As a result, people are pretty evenly

Distributed over a large area.

4 College Senior

Facilities: Our schools location is great. Los Angeles is less than an hour away, the beaches are close, and the weather.

4 College Freshman

Weather: The weather is nice for the most part!

1 College Freshman

Drug Safety: Drugs are a huge part of Whittier. They are everywhere. Especially in the Whittier community/ The school does not know how to deal with the drugs here.

2 College Freshman

Campus Housing: I had the worst experience with on campus housing. The residential life department is terrible and have made it miserable for me to live on campus. Many of my friends love living on campus, so it may have been an individual experience, but overall I was really disappointed

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: I love the little cafes and diners off campus. It helps me get through the week because I probably would not eat
