I am currently a first-year undergrad student and there isn't a day that goes by that I am not blown away by this school. Sure, it's on the smaller side but I meet someone new everyday. The layout is perfect and I never have to run to class since everything is basically together. I really enjoy the sense of community that the school provides, especially since I am an out of state student. The only thing that I would change/improve would be the student parking situation, which says a lot! This place is a SoCal gem and I believe it is one of the most up and coming schools out there.

Everything that I have done at this school has been fantastic. I am absolutely positive that I made the right decision in where I want to be for the next 4 years. The people are great, the area is great, the weather is perfect, the classes and professors are great, and so many more. The only thing lacking is the diversity (under 100 African American undergrads).

I've loved everything about the school so far. Plenty of connections for the real world, plenty of parties if thats your life.
