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.

Where in LA can I find a relaxed neighborhood where I don't have to drive too much?
It's tough to live in LA without a car, but if you want an area where you can forget about your car for the weekend, try an apartment near the beach in Santa Monica or Venice Beach.

where is in LA can I find a relaxed neighborhood and near of nightlife locals?
While it is hard to define “local nightlife” in a city and county as large as Los Angles, my recommendation is based on locality that highlights the best attributes of L.A…The weather of course.

Outdoor lovers can begin their weekend with a trip to the sprawling Griffith Park, one of the largest urban parks in the world, and then head to the Venice Beach Boardwalk for some excellent shopping and dining. After some people watching on the boardwalk, head to one of LA's many museums, like the Natural History Museum, the J. Paul Getty Museum, or Madame Tussaud's Wax Museum. Top off your perfect Los Angeles weekend with a relaxing trip to the San Antonio Winery.
Does Los Angeles have a downtown area where a lot of people walk around?
The area that is known as Downtown LA is the central business district of Los Angeles. However, it is also home to the city's Grand Avenue cultural corridor. Although the neighborhood had deteriorated somewhat after the advent of the automobile and freeways, the area has turned itself around drastically in recent years, in part due to new buildings, bars, hotels, shops, and restaurants sprouting up across the neighborhood. Located in Beverly Hills, Rodeo Drive, of course, is one of the most famous--albeit expensive--shopping destinations in the world.

Yes. In fact, Los Angeles has more museums per capita than any other city in the world. Some of the city's art museums are among the most notable.

For Major League Soccer, the Los Angeles Galaxy and Club Deportivo Chivas USA are based in nearby Carson, California. In addition, the week-long US Open of Surfing takes place every summer in nearby Huntington Beach, California.
any eco friendly apartments?
That's a great question, but we have no good way to really search for that mainly because we haven't found many apartments who describe themselves or advertise themselves as being eco friendly or green. We have many articles on our blog about living green in an apartment, but we'd recommend looking at apartments that allow you to walk or bike rather than drive and have recycling and composting programs. You can inquire further to see if buildings have grey water systems or a green roof or use eco friendly paint, carpet, etc.
