3 College Junior

Overall Experience: Great school needs more support for students

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: My school did a good job of selecting my roommates. I requested to room with a friend and it worked out. We have 2 other roommates who are very nice. I expected to have only one other roommate though and our school didn't fully inform us about the roommate situation until after finding roommates and housing.

Overall Experience: As long as you make it to the finish line, your portfolio is going to be amazing.

4 College Junior

Local Area: Laguna Beach is a beautiful place.

4 College Junior

Guys & Girls: Everyone is very unique, but there's always someone who is going to share the same interests as you.

4 College Junior

Off-Campus Dining: There's a lot of food around, as long as you have a car.

3 College Junior

Off-Campus Housing: I personally live a little further away from the school than most to keep the cost down. I've heard it's convenient as far as proximity to the campus but goes under lots of construction and can be loud at times.

4 College Junior

Off-Campus Dining: There is a large variety of restaurants, cafes, and grocery stores around the area. While some places are pricey based on the location, there is usually something for everyone.

3 College Junior

Administration: Everyone in the administration are for the most part ok at their job. They try to be helpful whenever they can.

3 College Junior

Scholarships: I got a very average scholarship of about $6,000. I received some financial aid but no where near enough to make up for the lack of money and income my family and I have.

2 College Junior

Campus Housing: The main problem everyone has with the dorms is the fire alarm system. The alarm was overly sensitive and went off at least once a day in one of the dorms. When this did happen, everyone in the entire complex could clearly hear it. The dorm managers never even came in during the beginning of the year to make sure no one was smoking marijuana (like they said they would) or even more importantly, make sure there was no real fire.

5 College Junior

Guys & Girls: never been around so many nerds in my life, looks are not the top focus of most students.

Campus Food: there are vending machines on campus and frig. kitchen on both campuses. most people bring food or drive over to store. Catered lunches/dinners with activities are often. There is a cafe that is being built by the dorms, but as of now there are food trucks that arrive during lunch hours.

Administration: There's a sense of strictness in the classroom due to attendance, but that's about it. also idk if we really have campus police. If anything we have administration and other folks on campus we can go to if there's something up.

3 College Freshman

Local Area: I don't think there's a lot to do where the school is located specifically, but if you have a car, the irvine spectrum is only 10 mins away which is rad. dining around in Laguna is expensive, unless you go to the local whole foods market or up in Aliso Viejo.

Health & Safety: There's no need really for police on campus because not a lot goes on here. If anything, we hear sirens because of a car accident on the road to the school /there's a crash every 3 months I swear/.

Party Scene: I heard everything from people partying at the clubs in huntington beach to doing a doctor who marathon with friends on a couch. I wouldn't know first hand since I'm too busy with homework. :'D

Off-Campus Housing: I've heard from folks that it's much better to just get a couple of roomies and live in a 2 bed apartment than hitting up the dorms. It's cheaper since the dorms are about $900 a month for a shared space, compared to the same shared space for anywhere between $300-$500. Aliso Viejo is a popular area not too far from the school that a lot of my friends live around.

Academics: I'd like to point out that I am specifically an animation student. And we are the quirkiest bunch of people. The curriculum and teachers really prepare you for the crazy and hectic life of an artist working in a studio. You don't have a lot of time to goof off, and when you do work, you get a lot done in a small amount of time. The animation shooting room is pretty small, but the chair is hopefully going to give us more space in the future for more students. We also have a job board for the general school, whether you're looking for a part time job in school, or a full time job in a studio. It's updated with the latest jobs and internships, which is pretty cool.
