    For such a small student body, there's tons of on-campus activities that students usually immerse themselves in to keep busy. This includes clubs (performing, activist, volunteer), government departments, and events sponsored by administrative bodies on campus. Irvine is a short 15 min drive away, and the campus shuttle can always take you there. The beach is a short 30 min drive away and since we're blessed with Southern California sunshine, that's a popular destination.

    The campus is beautiful to walk around, go for a swim in the giant Olympic size pool, work out in the huge gym, lay out or play on the campus green, converse in the café/game room, and relax in the gardens and gazebo. The beach is about a ten minute drive, Irvine Spectrum about 20 minutes, Disney Land about 30 minutes, and if you want to go out LA and San Diego are about one hour away.

    Soka has a lot of school coordinated events and a lot of clubs! Unfortunately the town it is located in is not the most exciting but other than that it is great. Lot's of hiking in the area.

    For fun we go to the beach. The beach is ten minutes from the school. For fun sometimes we go to the Spectrum in Orange County which is a place where you can shop, go to the movies or eat out. We are also close to Disneyland, but there is a lot of University close by so we visit.

    Join Clubs, go to the beach, work out--Soka's exercise facilities are world class. Our pool was modeled after the 1996 Atlanta Olympic Stadium, and professional athletes train in our facilities with a local training company. The British Olympic team trained on our track for a few weeks a few years back; it was good fun meeting them.

    extracurricular activities are what students rely on for fun. there are several dance and music clubs. there are some sports events which aren't as serious as the sports teams. there is a movie theatre a mile away, in a shopping center which also consists of wahoo's tacos, subway, tjmaxx, ralphs grocery store, cvs, mobtown pizza, and some expensive clothing stores. there is also a quiet cafe nearby that alot of students go to but it's really small. there are a couple starbucks' in the area. target and walmart are nearby. most students don't go out much. they are busy doing extracurricular projects and studying.
