    Bang for the buck

    Incredibly overpriced.

    What to do for fun

    no student activities exist.

    Food and Dining

    everything close is expensive due to the neighborhood

    Dorm Life

    does not apply

    Academic Rigor

    Academic rigor is high; however, more could be accomplished, with greater results for everyone, if not for the paternal and patronizing environment created by staff and administrators.

    Tips for prospective students

    Go anywhere else if possible.

    In three sentences

    Problems following their own rules and regulations. Paternal, blame the student environment. You must succeed in spite of them.

    Campus Safety

    The campus is very safe, it's enclosed/gated with card access to enter the lot and security on campus as well as a go-cart security driver who scans the area. The only reason I didn't select 5 stars is it's in Los Angeles, so the outskirts are OK.

    Greek Life

    Greek life? If you're talking about honor societies, you can join the PSI CHI Alliant Chapter, but this is not a sorority, it's an international honor society with high academic standards for acceptance. Again, this is a professional graduate environment.

    Clubs and Activities

    Student government, environmental/go green, Trauma specialty club, and a few other things.

    Great for these types of students

    Serious students who really want to become a professional practitioner.

    Share any unusual traditions or locations on campus

    We have a library that reminds me of Harry Potter or something because it's located in the last floor of the university! We think it's kind of funny to be working so diligently in there sometimes.

    Bang for the buck

    I think it's great for the education, the opportunity to network, growing as a professional and the reputation in the field. This is an APA accredited site in Los Angeles. The professors are excellent. The training is excellent. I've run into site directors and other facilitators in hospitals and clinics outside the university who are familiar with this university. I've also run into alumuni who are doing post-doc professional work in high end sites.

    What to do for fun

    This campus is located in Los Angeles so there's a lot of things to do if you're interested in seeking them out and driving. There's a main street a few blocks away from the university where most of us go to the movies, get food (lots of diversity there) and drinks. There's no fun hub at the university, you have to travel outside of it for fun, which is smarter anyway because you're less likely to run into a professor singing karaoke with a beer in your hand if your off campus.

    Food and Dining

    There' s a few break rooms with the usual vending machines and refrigerators for your brown bag or leftovers. There's a footbridge connected to the university so you can walk to Subway, Starbucks, PickupStix, and a few other restaurants. I rated three stars because there's no onsite cafeteria in the university, however we're allotted one hour for lunch so there's plenty of time to walk the footbridge.

    Dorm Life

    Zero dorm life. There are no living quarters associated with the university at this location in Los Angeles. Much of us relocated on our own, sought roommates and live independently nearby.

    Academic Rigor

    If you're doing the doctoral program you're going to be challenged, especially your first year, but it's worth it. This is an A.P.A. accredited program and they have high academic standards and expectations so bring your A-game and learn to be organized, form study groups and go without sleep your first year. This is what you should expect from good training at that level anyway really.

    Tips for prospective students

    This is a professional atmosphere and small enough class size style graduate program where everyone's quality of work is noticed and is important. So, if you're up for the challenge to present your best self and become a professional student to practitioner, this is a good environment for you. If you want to slide by, aren't flexible, or have intermittent interest in working hard, it will likely be noticed, JSYK.

    In three sentences

    I attend the Los Angeles campus which I think is a great university with small enough class sizes to provide quality interaction among peers and professors. Accelerated coursework and relevant academic plans. Lots of quality experience early in the program pertaining to clinical training and practicum opportunities.

    Food and Dining

    The cafeteria is open a few times a day for students to purchase food. The hours are limited, and the price varies depending on the time of day.

    Dorm Life

    Though the dorms are not the best quality, the community that is created on campus is great.

    Academic Rigor

    The professors are really challenging students.

    Tips for prospective students

    If you are a potential student, I suggest getting in contact with the school and asking all the questions you have to see if it is a good fit for you. There are also many students who would be willing to talk to you if you would like to know more about a personal experience with a specific program.

    In three sentences

    For Couples and Family Therapy, Alliant has a good program. It is an accredited school and has educated professors who have current therapy experiences. It is expensive, but the school is well known in the community.
