Social scene is extremely "cliquey." People are friendly, but it is very hard to break out of your established circle of friends. Clubs are highly lacking. Food is amazing, probably the best of any of the colleges I've been to. Can get monotonous, but the sheer quality of everything is stand-up. The campus is the most beautiful in LA, probably in Southern California altogether. Professors encourage visiting them in office hours. Highly liberal, highly activist campus. Professors often preach their ideological stance on issues. If you do not agree with the prevailing attitudes on some political/social issues, you may feel left out of the social dynamic. Used to be very hard to get classes, but it's much better now.
