I feel safer on campus than I do at the grocery store! Campus security is posted at the door of every building, and they personally check student and staff ID. Also, security officers drive through the parking lots to make sure cars are secure and students walking to cars are safe. Finally, security officers will always ask if you need an escort to your car if you are leaving a building after dark.

This is largely a commuter school; most if not everyone drives or carpools here. Distance from school is very important when considering where to live. Traffic to school can vary greatly depending if you're going against or with traffic regardless of distance. I advise living within 10 miles of campus to avoid the headache of SoCal traffic and to save money on gas.

No campus transportation is available. There's local transportation, but Southern California's public transportation system isn't known for being stellar. Plus the city the school's located in (Pomona, CA) is generally very shady and ghetto so I'd advise against public transportation or walking around the city alone. You definitely need a car to get around anywhere because SoCal's public transportation is pretty much nonexistent. The campus is located about 10 minutes away from an airport (Ontario airport), so if you need a rental, it's nearby.

I'm in the college of optometry and I've been extremely happy with my experiences at the school so far. The faculty are all very nice and well-versed in the field. Many if not all of them are excellent mentors and they treat you more like peers rather than just students.The environment in our college is less competitive and more supportive. Our college significantly encourages socializing and bonding among students and staff, which in turn facilitates an open and friendly environment for everyone.

Our building is the newest, so the facilities are new and up-to-date with technological advances in the field. We share the building with a couple of the other colleges. The workload is rigorous and can get very hectic, but is manageable if you budget your time well. There's always help available from faculty and students help each other out a lot, even between the different graduating classes. We get an OD buddy from the year ahead of us to act as our mentor if we have any questions.

Our college provides many opportunities to network, but you have to be actively involved. There are many associations you can join and the college is very good at notifying us of informational meetings and conferences.
