Fullerton is in Orange County (that's right, the O.C.), in Southern California. The city covers slightly over 22 square miles and is about 25 miles from downtown Los Angeles, 3 miles from Anaheim (the home of Disneyland), and about 20 miles from the Pacific Ocean. If you're looking for a convenient city in this part of the state, you've found it!
Fullerton's downtown area is very walkable, especially the area between Hillcrest Park, and Lemon park. This is perfect for students since the Fullerton College is just adjacent to this area. For anyone living outside of downtown you will likely need a car, but with Fullerton's many major streets, it's still an easy way to get around the city.
