    Campus Safety

    Security does their job!

    Clubs and Activities

    Tons! Don't be afraid to take risks. That's what we are hear for. If you enjoy something and there is a club or workshop for it, GO FOR IT! You'll make great friends.

    What to do for fun

    There are performing opportunities through out the school year, living in Hollywood where there is always something happening, cafes with entertainment, the Pantages Theater for musicals or shows, etc.

    Food and Dining

    AMDA Cafe is a good place to have lunch. Though there are restaurants everywhere in Hollywood. You have many choices.

    Dorm Life

    It's great! I am now living with awesome roommates. Just be very clear about what kind of people you want to live with because housing will pay attention to that. For the most part the housing is great. There are even RA events every weekend!

    Academic Rigor

    If you are lazy, you won't make it. You need to be game and focus. Do not thing because it's a performing arts school it'll be easier somehow because it is still challenging.

    Tips for prospective students

    Come here with confidence and be the best you, you can be. You are going to learn a lot about the craft, how to work with others, and how to work yourself. This is tough school if you are lazy, if you do your work and stay focused, you will be fine.

    In three sentences

    AMDA is a great school! If you are dedicated to your dreams and willing to put in all of the work, this school will do you good. I am loving it here.
