Loser central. I don't think they'd know how to throw a party if a YouTube video hit them in the head and Epic Meal time pop'd out to show them.
Its a craft school, students that go to CCH usually are busy making films and when they're not, I don't know what they are doing.
There is NO sense of community at the school, at least for myself. Its saddening.

Its the old Panavision building, so they had a nice sized parking lot for there employees, when CCH took over the lot, they purchased the lot next door which was a parking lot so students could safely park in the back of the facility. One of the few smart moves on the schools part. If you stay in the OVERPRICED student housing options, you can easily walk to school or take the shuttle that comes 30-40mins prior to your class period.
No tickets or fines. Security guard on duty before and after school hours so no need to worry about the safety of your vehicle. There are also cameras so your extra "safe."

Guys & Girls:
Its a film school, you'll find all sorts of looks and personalities, usually that reflect of the genre there most interested in.
"I didn't go to film school to rate my peers looks and physical characteristics, I went to film school to be apart of a creative force behind positive aw inspiring films and movements that have encourage community, friendship, and living a free positive lifestyle. So to "GRADE" my peers just seems disrespectful to there character."
On that note, I can make the comment that. "If you see a hot girl on campus, she's probably there for a casting call." Due to the fact that the film business is dominantly male driven, so is the school. There isn't a lot of female options and they're usually swiped up quickly if they are "good looking."

Students who live in school housing are able to take a shuttle directly from their residence to the school. Public transportation is also available to other students.

The application process was very simple. If I remember correctly I needed two refernce letters, and entry essay, a resume, and official transcripts. Obtaining the transcripts from the few schools I have attended was the most difficult and time consuming part. Once all requirements have been met the prospective student interviews with a school counselor and will let them know if they have been accepted or not. Pleae note: this process may have changed since my admission.

Most of us at CCH are not very athletic - we're nerdy and techy.

I love the fact that all the computers and software are comprable to the current industry standard

With CCH being so close to Ventura Blvd, you're never far from anything you want to eat; whether it is fast food, coffee and pastries or ethnic cuisine.

Most students go off campus to grab a bite to eat. Luckily, there are several eateries within a close vicinity of the school.

Teacher's are top notch, the newer instructors aren't always the right fit for that particular class.

I have not had an internship yet but there is a big department dedicated to helping students find one and there is a bulletin board full of open spots. They are usually credit only but are an invaluable experience.

Most campus housing is within walking distance and for the one that is not there is a free shuttle to take you back and forth. Sometimes you have to wait a while but it is there.

Columbia College's facilities are excellent, while there facilities aren't huge, they are constantly expanding and are almost obsessive on keeping up to date and to the industry standard. The goal is to keep the College to Studio Transitional learning curve down and they seem to do a very good job at it.

The School is literally right across the street from the Metro, and if you don't have a car to get to school, there is a shuttle that picks up students on a daily schedule.

Guys & Girls:
Guys and Girls come from all over the U.S and the World, it is a very diverse group of students and every guy and girl has at least one thing in common, so that's a great way to start up a conversation/relationship. Hang around in the lobby all day and you'll run across a wide range of interesting people, and make some unique friends.

Several safe and secure apartment complexes are available close to campus, and the school housing office assists (and recommends) comfortable rental units to students. They also have a relationship with apartment rental offices in the area.

Excellent tips and assistance are available for scholarships and grants. The Financial aid office is always open and available to students.

Something for Everyone – There's a variety of dining options within the area. One of my personal favorites includes Panera. Panera is a great, healthy choice for sandwiches, soups, or salads. If you're in a rush before class, Subway, Panda Express, and Coffee Bean are always great choices. Being so close to a hub of spots, you're guaranteed an experience any time you go out.

Made for Us – My school provides the perfect atmosphere to make any style of film that we desire. There are sets around every corner, including: living room, pub/restaurant, bathrooms, etc. You name it, we got it. We also have plenty of up to date equipment at our disposal. My school supports us in every way while also teaching us habits we'll need for the real world.

Always Something New – Columbia College Hollywood is anything but boring. The quirky style and diversity of looks is not only fun to look at but allows students to film in a variety of locations that wouldn't be available at other colleges. Lined the walls are posters and examples of the alumni's work as a constant reminder that we can succeed too. There's always a film being made, festivals and social gatherings, and a chance to learn and grow in an upbeat, fun environment. This is the perfect place to let your imagination go wild and improve your craft.

As Diverse as the School Can Be for Its Size – although the school has a wide variety of courses for students to take and study from, some of the majors a little narrow, and no classes that specify costuming and make up, design things like that.
