For the low-residency grad program, there is no housing. You either have to share with a local student, if they are nice enough to have you, or stay in a hotel. Those can be a bit pricey.

This campus is in Culver City, which has enormous potential for activities and cultural events, but it's away from most everything and public transportation is not great in Culver City or Los Angeles.
They are considering moving the campus, though, which I think would be great.
All that said, in the low-residency program, students don't have a lot of time to do much but focus on the seminars and work while there.

I'm in the graduate program; here, you are totally responsible for yourself. This is school, not prison. The work you do and get done depends on no one else.

Antioch strives and succeeds in getting an excellent cross-section of people in almost all areas; probably the least-diverse group would be political. Most people who come to Antioch seem at least liberal in their political views and some are more left than that by far.

We don't have a Greek system. People attend just for attaining a degree.

It's one of those campuses that you only go to for class. It's tiny and there aren't many options.

Antioch LA is known for how liberal of a school it is. It has unisex bathrooms and is the first Masters in Psychology program in the States to have a LGBT concentration.

Antioch LA is a very liberal school. It's accepting of just about any minority group (race, gender, religion). I gave it an A- however because I feel a conservative, righty would be ostracized.

I'm lucky enough to stay with a friend who drives, but otherwise in Los Angeles everyone drives. The school provides parking if you have a car, and there are a number of hotels to stay in within walking distance.

My major is Creative Writing (low residency, MFA). I'm quite happy with the program. I like the format of working with mentors in small groups. I'm amazed at how much I'm learning. It's as though you have this idea you or your work needs only a little tweaking. Then you get to school and realize how much you didn't know you didn't know. My major gripes are twofold: low-residency just isn't as immediate as in-person. A lot of work is done online, which means when you get to the residency you have to pack a LOT of information and work into 9 days. It's draining. The other thing I'd like to see is semester-long seminars. Right now you attend residency and sit in on seminars of your choosing, take notes (if you choose) and turn in papers on what you learned from the seminars. Some of the issues are so compelling that I'd like to see some seminar topics made into semester-long courses. Oh and there's the little matter of the breaks. You don't get any. There's very little downtime/breaks between semesters.
Still, I would definitely do it all over again; my goals are to be a writer making a living writing, possibly in conjunction with collegiate teaching. Of course I'm concerned about finding work in my field. The whole world's falling apart and jobs are scarce for almost everyone. It's a gamble, but most worthwhile things turn out to be.

Financial aid is very easy to get, but scholarships are much harder. There are few available and most cover only a fraction of tuition. There are no fellowships or other kinds of waivers for the low-residency programs.

In a way because of the cohort we have the opportunity to grow and know each other.

I am finding the MAP, Master's of Psychology, program at Antioch University LA to be a great experience. I feel it has already broadened my understanding of the diversity of client's I might treat in my psychologist practice.

Commuter campus, all night life is located off campus

I am not aware of the public transportation options because I have and use my own car.

The financial aid process has been extremely easy. The financial aid office is continuely sending information through campus e-mail that is very valuable and helpful.

Antioch University LA is a very diverse campus. The experience has been an eye opening and very valuable.

Attendance is very strick and does affect students' accademic life. If 3 days are missed.

I don't eat at the dining area at Antioch. It is to expensive for me. I am a part-time worker and can't afford their prices.

Health & Safety:
This is not a major priority on the campus. University does have a mental health department.
Recent Alumnus 2012-09-17T12:01:19Z
has only one deli style restaurant. not a very good option. vending machines do not offer health options. Is best to bring your own food or nutrition or visit local eateries.
Recent Alumnus 2012-09-12T00:55:20Z
Just a small deli in two areas.
Other places need to be driven to.

Very Academic – I am very stimulated in most of my classes.
Antioch is about diversity, reading, writing, getting involved in community.
Making a difference.
Sorry, there are no reviews.
