    Campus Safety

    The campus is split into two locations and while Potrero Hill is relatively safe, it is a major city and crime does happen.

    Share any unusual traditions or locations on campus

    There is a great Chinese Medicine library located right on campus, and a convenient student store for purchasing supplies you may need over the course of your studies.

    What to do for fun

    From exploring the city, to spending a day at the beach, you will never get tired of San Francisco. Great night life, incredible restaurants, and endless activities make this city one of a kind (not to mention beautiful vistas). In addition, you can make day trips up to Napa for wine tasting, south to the Santa Cruz mountains for spectacular hikes in the redwoods, and over to Tahoe for skiing and boating.

    Food and Dining

    While there is no food located at the school, San Francisco is home to some of the most diverse and delicious cuisine around. In addition, many restaurants use organic and local ingredients.

    Dorm Life

    There are no dorms, but often affordable shared housing in the area. For those students who don't mind a longer commute, less expensive house can be found across the bay in Oakland.

    Academic Rigor

    ACTCM is on a quarter system, with often only a two week break in between, so expect to spend a lot of time in school/studying.

    Tips for prospective students

    Visit the school and spend some time in San Francisco prior to applying to make sure both are the right fit.

    In three sentences

    The first Chinese Medicine school in California, ACTCM is a fast-paced school that will teach you all you need to know in order to pass the state and national board exams and become a licensed practitioner.
