3 College Sophomore

Local Area: There are many retail shops within a short bus ride so it is easy to get supplies. The restaurants are also easy to get to because of the school shuttle.

3 College Junior

Local Area: It's next to a military base and a major highway, so there's not that many things to do.

3 College Student

Local Area: Mira Mesa is an okay area. It's not far from downtown San Diego which is where all the attractions, nightlife, and shopping is.

2 College Sophomore

Local Area: There are too many cliques and superficiality that make it unbearable, at times, to live here. I come from a much larger and diverse city and experienced culture shock for the first year of living in Sacramento, CA.

3 College Junior

Local Area: Alliant is tucked away in a quiet suburb. If you want night life, a short drive into San Diego would suffice.
