  • Mar-25-2014 I am researching this school and have visited the campus

    The surrounding town (in my opinion) didn't look that promising, however- LA is very close and the students said campus life was very exciting, especially in the evenings.

    There is a lot to do for fun! The school is fifteen to twenty minutes outside of downtown LA and places like Dodger stadium. Not to mention the surrounding area of Eagle Rock, Glendale, and Pasadena.

    Los Angeles is full of things to do: concerts, sporting events, conventions, etc. The city is only about 15 minutes from campus in a car, and Pasadena and Hollywood are close by as well. Pasadena has good food and great shopping, and Hollywood has a lot of nightlife or daytime tours. Eagle Rock itself can be a lot of fun: there are taco trucks, other restaurants, shopping, and farmers markets.

    Oxy is located in Eagle Rock - which is right in the middle of Glendale (the Americana, movie theaters, a shopping mall) and Pasadena (Old Town Pasadena shopping district). Oxy is also a quick car ride from downtown LA, and is about half an hour to an hour drive from the popular beaches in the area. (Cars make getting to these places easier, although it is possible to go there via the bus system.)

    There is so much to do at Oxy that is fun! There are always fun activities and dances going on on campus. The lovely thing is that Oxy is so close to LA that there is always the opportunity to explore Los Angeles.

    There aren't big party scenes, but you can find them if you look for them. Activities in Los Angeles are often planned on the weekends, but it's easy to feel cooped up and bored if you don't keep busy with extracurriculars or friends. Fortunately, there are plenty of both.

    Its close to LA, so I can hike to the Hollywood sign or take a bike ride along Venice beach. Great night life.
