Health & Safety: It's been just fine for me, though I'm rarely there late. I've never felt unsafe/

4 College Junior

Technology: The computer lab is up to date and works just fine, although if you bring a portable drive from home, there can be some complications in getting it to work.

The printing can be a pain, as you have to leave the lab for student resource center, which is at the opposite side of the building. It's not a far walk, but it can be a pain.

Majors: I'm in the low-residency program for Creative Writing, and I find it absolutely fantastic. We meet in person during residency, then stay connected through the internet during the rest of the term. The mentors are all accomplished authors, the majority of whom are also excellent at seeing the big picture of one's work as well as line editing.

The most important criteria for admission would be talent as a writer and proof that you can commit to being self-disciplined. It's really a super program.

Campus Quality: The LA campus is located in a corporate office building, although there seem to be plans to relocate the campus at some point, so it's not visually attractive. There are some birch trees outside which are pretty. The library is quite small, but the program has another lending program called WeDeliver which can get you about any book you need. The worst thing about the campus in my opinion is the (lack of) climate control. It is always cold in the building, whether I'm there in December or June. I just freeze my ass off and it's hard to concentrate when my teeth are chattering.

Diversity: Antioch university is a very diverse school of high learning with a focus of social justice for mankind.

2 College Junior

Campus Housing: For the low-residency grad program, there is no housing. You either have to share with a local student, if they are nice enough to have you, or stay in a hotel. Those can be a bit pricey.

3 College Junior

Local Area: This campus is in Culver City, which has enormous potential for activities and cultural events, but it's away from most everything and public transportation is not great in Culver City or Los Angeles.

They are considering moving the campus, though, which I think would be great.

All that said, in the low-residency program, students don't have a lot of time to do much but focus on the seminars and work while there.

5 College Junior

Administration: I'm in the graduate program; here, you are totally responsible for yourself. This is school, not prison. The work you do and get done depends on no one else.

5 College Junior

Diversity: Antioch strives and succeeds in getting an excellent cross-section of people in almost all areas; probably the least-diverse group would be political. Most people who come to Antioch seem at least liberal in their political views and some are more left than that by far.

2 Recent Alumnus

Campus Quality: It's one of those campuses that you only go to for class. It's tiny and there aren't many options.

4 Recent Alumnus

Campus Quality: Antioch LA is known for how liberal of a school it is. It has unisex bathrooms and is the first Masters in Psychology program in the States to have a LGBT concentration.

4 Recent Alumnus

Diversity: Antioch LA is a very liberal school. It's accepting of just about any minority group (race, gender, religion). I gave it an A- however because I feel a conservative, righty would be ostracized.

3 College Junior

Transportation: I'm lucky enough to stay with a friend who drives, but otherwise in Los Angeles everyone drives. The school provides parking if you have a car, and there are a number of hotels to stay in within walking distance.

4 College Junior

Majors: My major is Creative Writing (low residency, MFA). I'm quite happy with the program. I like the format of working with mentors in small groups. I'm amazed at how much I'm learning. It's as though you have this idea you or your work needs only a little tweaking. Then you get to school and realize how much you didn't know you didn't know. My major gripes are twofold: low-residency just isn't as immediate as in-person. A lot of work is done online, which means when you get to the residency you have to pack a LOT of information and work into 9 days. It's draining. The other thing I'd like to see is semester-long seminars. Right now you attend residency and sit in on seminars of your choosing, take notes (if you choose) and turn in papers on what you learned from the seminars. Some of the issues are so compelling that I'd like to see some seminar topics made into semester-long courses. Oh and there's the little matter of the breaks. You don't get any. There's very little downtime/breaks between semesters.
Still, I would definitely do it all over again; my goals are to be a writer making a living writing, possibly in conjunction with collegiate teaching. Of course I'm concerned about finding work in my field. The whole world's falling apart and jobs are scarce for almost everyone. It's a gamble, but most worthwhile things turn out to be.

Scholarships: Financial aid is very easy to get, but scholarships are much harder. There are few available and most cover only a fraction of tuition. There are no fellowships or other kinds of waivers for the low-residency programs.

3 College Senior

Campus Quality: In a way because of the cohort we have the opportunity to grow and know each other.

4 College Junior

Majors: I am finding the MAP, Master's of Psychology, program at Antioch University LA to be a great experience. I feel it has already broadened my understanding of the diversity of client's I might treat in my psychologist practice.

4 College Junior

Guys & Girls: The guys and gals at Antioch University LA are a very diverse group of people from all walks of life.

4 College Junior

Scholarships: The financial aid process has been extremely easy. The financial aid office is continuely sending information through campus e-mail that is very valuable and helpful.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: Antioch University LA is a very diverse campus. The experience has been an eye opening and very valuable.

5 College Junior

Majors: I am extremely happy with my program. I have learned a lot during my time here at Antioch. Yes, i woul do this again. My career goals to to complete my education and become a well rounded psycholoiest, psychotherapist with background in social and marriage and family with addiction areas. I don't have any issues at this time thinking i cannot find a job in my field of choice.

2 College Senior

Health & Safety: This is not a major priority on the campus. University does have a mental health department.

1 College Senior

Campus Food: has only one deli style restaurant. not a very good option. vending machines do not offer health options. Is best to bring your own food or nutrition or visit local eateries.

2 College Senior

Campus Food: Just a small deli in two areas.
Other places need to be driven to.

4 College Senior

Academics: Very Academic – I am very stimulated in most of my classes.
Antioch is about diversity, reading, writing, getting involved in community.
Making a difference.
