    I love it here. To be honest the school is quite small but on the flip side it mean we all get to know each other. Plus it provides us with resources for projects.

    When I first moved here it was like venturing out into the real world. I moved away from all my high school friends and my family to a new city where I didn't know anyone, but it all worked out fine in the end. The campus is quite small and in the middle of nowhere so sometimes I wish I were at a bigger school like UCSB, but most of the staff are friendly and there are some nice spots around the campus to chill out when you need to. For example: the Zoom Cafe, the fountain/pool, or the bike path behind the school which is by a creek. We are close to a sewage waste facility so there's often a foul smell in the air that roams around the campus and everyone notices. During the fall and winter there's a pretty bad bug problem in the classrooms which gets aggravating and distracting. The beach is nearby though which is definitely a good thing and the weather usually isn't too harsh out here, but it can get a bit cold. Sometimes it's hard being a film student cause we're broke, overworked, and starving! At times my friends and I don't get too much sleep, but that's how this business is. The school is very diverse and I've met some pretty interesting people here, even from around the world! There's young students to way older ones which makes for fun classes. Overall I guess there's been the good times and the bad ones here.
