    Beautiful surroundings, azaming staff/ faculty, great environment. The students and professor's are wonderful, nice easy going, friendly. The unviersity is really focusing on your education, small number of students in the class so it is easy to get one-one tutoring with the professor unlike USC or UCLA and other university the professor has time to help you in the areas you need help on.

    Bang for the buck

    Although CDU is a private institution it is affordable and cheaper than the public universities in L.A.

    There are many things to to in greater L.A. from scenic to adventurous excursions. I love the whole scale. If you are looking to just relax or study CDU has a quit library as well as a student lounging area.

    Food and Dining

    There are many places to eat in L.A. and a variety of grocery stores for you to shop at. Due to the fact that I have to cook for myself, I have learned to try a variety of cuisines.

    Dorm Life

    You can choose to live with roommates which I have experienced but is a little expensive to do. For now I live with a family member.

    Academic Rigor

    The course work can be difficult if you are not attentive, do not read and if you do not seek the resources made available to help you excel.

    Tips for prospective students

    It is important to note the student to professor ratio because you will need letters of recommendation and if the professor knows you well and not just by a letter grade it enlightens your letter!
