My alma mater...huge campus in Westwood. Take Sunset going west to Hilgard, and make a left on Hilgard. You are there. They have sports and entertainment offered as well.

Call me biased as this is my old stomping ground but it's an absolutely beautiful campus to go and visit. I'm a major fan of Royce Hall (try to find all of the 'mistakes' in the building's facade).... read more

The campus of Occidental College is a beautiful spot to take a walk, picnic, or hike to the top of the hill for 360 views of the area.
