  • Loyola Marymount University

    Picture this: You are sitting at a café, sipping on a virgin piña colada, and watching the sunset over the ocean. You breathe deep and realize you are in the prime of your life and living in paradise. After some time contemplating your blessed soul, you look down at your table and decide that it is time to start your ten page paper that is due 8 p.m. for your Anthropology class at Loyola Marymount. It’s hard to be stressed in paradise.

    Palm Trees and Books

    Attending a college that is right by the beach might be therapeutic, but it certainly does not totally alleviate the stress students feel when faced with the rigorous academic programs at LMU. The small size of the school means smaller classes, so professors tend to know when students are not on top of their game. The upside? Professors are very approachable, know students on an individual level, and are invested in the success of the people in their classes. Loyola Marymount is known for its location and academics, but also for the beautiful and well-kept facilities that students can enjoy. Athletic folk will enjoy watching the women’s volleyball and basketball team, and maybe even participating in some IM Ultimate Frisbee games themselves. With all the sunshine and beauty of the school, it is hard to be unhappy—unless you are homeless, that is. Luckily off campus housing is available!

    An Apartment Getaway

    It is a necessity for most students to live off campus at some point in their experience at LMU, due to limited on campus housing. Students flock to areas like Marina del Rey and Playa del Rey. These areas are filled to the brim with affordable apartment complexes, but don’t waste time getting your hands on a room because they can go fast. Our apartment guide will direct you to areas and apartments that fit you best. Once you get one of these apartments, you will begin to realize the true majesty that is Los Angeles. True, a car is often required to do most activities, but the university’s Lion Express shuttle or the Santa Monica Big Blue Bus are also available means of transportation that students can enjoy. Once students learn to navigate their surroundings, they will soon become aware that Los Angeles is one big playground.

    Git It Gurl

    Los Angeles has much to offer. In areas like Sunset strip, Hollywood, and Silverlake bars, clubs, and music venues are at every turn. Neighborhoods have drastically different cultures, so there really is something for everyone. The gay scene in LA is almost comparable to San Francisco’s with areas like West Hollywood and clubs like Akbar at 4356 West Sunset Blvd, The Abby and TigerHeat. To see your favorite musicians check out venues like The Roxy, The Smell, The Echo, and Amoeba. For youngins under 21, party hard around campus, throw a bonfire at the beach, or take advantage of your new apartment and invite everyone over for a shindig. Hopefully your landlord won’t call the cops… Students who go to Loyola Marymount rave about its academics and location. You will truly find yourself in a

  • University of California, Los Angeles

    What exactly is a Bruin? My favorite Wikipedia definition is, “the bear in the Reynard cycle fables, whence the word was introduced into English.” Unfortunately for the Reynard cycle fables, most people think of the University of California Los Angeles Bruins. Bruins come in many shapes and sizes. Some are big brown and furry with claws, while others are prospective students. You are probably the latter and are looking at UCLA because it is ranked 25th in the nation for its academics, is minutes away from the beach, is competitive in the PAC-12 Conference of NCAA’s Division I, and is located in the beautiful, sunny neighborhood of Westwood. What more could you want? A cheap apartment in Westwood, duh.

     

    Apartments, Not Ramen

    One memorable experience in life is being a starving college student and living off ramen. Personally, I never got sick of my coveted noodles, but if that’s not your thing, I will propose an alternate plan for you—get an affordable apartment off-campus so you can save enough money to go grocery shopping! The Westwood neighborhood is beautiful, and if you are lucky, you might even find an apartment with a view. Gather some buddies together and check out some tips in ourapartment search guides. Then, get to campus without a car! Take advantage of the UCLA Public Transit system, or check out the BigBlueBus and find routes to the beach and all over LA.

    Take Advantage of LA

    After taking the bus to the beach AND getting nicely tanned, you will be ready to show off and party at some bars. Westwood plenty of shops and late-night food joints, and is also super close to the “cool” part of Sunset Blvd. One experience that cannot be missed is getting a massive thing of cotton candy and embarrassing yourself on the mechanical bull at the Saddle Ranch Chop house at 8371 W Sunset Blvd West Hollywood. Don’t forget to see all your favorite bands in the venues that pervade LA, like the Whisky, the Roxy, the El Ray, Bootleg, the Airliner… the list goes on and on.

  • California State University, Los Angeles

    I see you at CSU.

    I C U

    I C U going to CSU, Los Angeles. Not that I know you or anything, but….I see you fitting in perfectly at this school! How can I make such an assumption? Because California State University Los Angeles genuinely has something for everyone, so I can safely assume that you would fit in one of the many niches at Cal State LA. CSU operates on the quarter system so students have the ability to experiment with lots of different classes and really get a feel for what suits them best. Through experimentation with different classes, clubs and organizations, students can find their niche, settle in to it, and become experts in their field. Another reason why I C U at CSU is because the school is so affordable. Cal State LA is on a beautiful campus and has a huge variety of majors and colleges headed by excellent professors, and is nowhere near as expensive as a UC. Students at this CSU feel that they can be full-time without having to mortgage their later lives.

    I C U renting an Off-Campus Apartment

    Besides being busy with school, students will be busy getting to know Los Angeles. Cal State LA is in a prime location since it is right in the heart of the city, and is very near downtown, Hollywood, Los Feliz, and Silverlake. LA is a bottomless pit of things to do, and one only needs to walk outside to find something. During the day there is the beach, and at night there are bars and restaurants galore. Renting an off-campus apartment is an essential way to really experience LA in all its glory. For help learning how to find your new place visit our apartment search guides. Though many people assume that exploring Los Angeles requires a car, the Metro is a great way to get around, too!

    I C U Having a Great Time over the Weekend

    Los Angeles is a city rich with culture (don’t believe the jealous haters who tell you differently), interesting people, activities, and an exciting nightlife. Grab some coffee and tea with your friends at one of LA’s hip cafés, like Bourgeois Pig, and then get dressed up and head to the Edison in downtown. Speaking of downtown, don’t miss the Downtown Los Angeles Art Walk every second Thursday of the month!

  • University of Southern California

    What makes us so excited about Trojans? The Trojan Horse was pretty cool; people from Turkey (known as Trojans) are nice; a Trojan “is a minor planet or moon that shares an orbit with a larger planet or moon” (according to Wikipedia), and that is indisputably siiiiiiick (bro). Last but not least, (get your mind out of the gutter) it is the mascot of the University of Southern California! USC, in the heart of Los Angeles, is a university for a city kid with class sizes to match those of a small town highschool. With an outrageous number of top-ranked programs, 150 undergraduate majors and 130 minors, you will not have a hard time finding something that jogs your interest. You might think it will be hard affording tuition and housing though. Mind you, “think” is the operative word here, since more than 60% of USC students receive financial aid, and housing options off-campus are plentiful.

     

    Living Large Off-Campus

    The most important thing you will learn in college is how to live large cheaply. Lucky for you, the area surrounding USC is both urban-chic and affordable. Get some roomies together and take a gander at our apartment search guides. Fine, so getting an apartment might be easy as pie, but what about getting to campus? I mean, this is LA, and LA is notorious for its lack of public transportation. I have two solutions for you. #1. The metro. Believe it or not, LA does have a bus line. #2 Get a bike. Most students at USC do not have cars, so biking is the way to go. Not only will you be helping the environment, but you will not have to worry about parking and you will be sculpting your legs so well, even the statue of David will be jealous.

    Riding Bikes and Walking Art

    If you can’t get enough of your bike, then check out one of the coolest things to do in LA: Midnight Ridazz. Their motto “Ride on!” pretty much encapsulates the spirit of this group, since it is often described as a “party on wheels.” These rides happen on the second Friday of the month, are themed, and attract over 1,300 people that dress up and ride with boom boxes or glitter. Now that you officially feel hip because you know about Midnight Ridazz, prepare to feel even more hip when I tell you about Downtown Art Walk! Art Walk happens every 2nd Thursday of the month, and you get to walk into various galleries, listen to live music and DJs, and experience dozens of food trucks!

  • American Jewish University

    Prestige and Degrees

    Did you know that the likes of Tony Blair and Colin Powell have spoken at American Jewish University? You just might be in a position of power one day, giving a speech to a roomful of bright-eyed, tired-from-last-night’s-cram-session young adults, thanks to the top-notch education you’ll receive at this prestigious university. Located in beautiful Bel-Air, California, American Jewish University is one of the largest Jewish institutions in the country. The university offers undergraduate degrees as varied as Journalism, Bioethics, and Jewish Studies, as well as graduate programs in Education and Rabbinic Studies. With the Ostrow Library and Gindi Auditorium at your disposal, you’ll never run out of resources for your next paper, or entertainment to help you forget about said paper. You’ll love AJU so much, you’ll be inviting Zion the Lion over for dinner before you know it.

    Off-Campus Housing and Hiking

    AJU’s location makes for a plethora of recreational opportunities, including hiking, horseback riding, and camping. If you need a place to store your sleeping bag and trail boots, off-campus housing is the way to go. While the university’s location might be picturesque, it offers limited apartments within walking distance. There are, however, many multi-unit apartment complexes and condos in the Bel-Air area, many with amenities like fitness centers and pools (for the perfect post-hike dip). If you need to split the rent, check out our college life guide. We offer great tips for finding a roommate who won’t drive you up the wall.

    Music and Mozzarella

    The Marvin and Sondra Smalley Sculpture Garden on AJU’s campus is something to behold. But if you need enough sensory stimulation to de-stress from a week of papers and presentations, you’ll want to head off campus. Like everywhere in the greater Los Angeles area, you’d benefit from having a car. Drive on over to Mulberry Street Pizzeria and enjoy food that didn’t just come out of the microwave. Stop by Blue Dog Beer Tavern. Chat away with your buddy from Managerial Accounting and do your best to kill the term paper blues. Tired of listening to your roommate’s awful smooth jazz? Take a trip over to Freakbeat Records and pick up some tunes to drown out the saxophone. You’ll find so many things to off AJU’s campus you’ll never have to resort to Saturday night charades again.
