is it easy to get a job on campus or around campus?
I worked at JambaJuice which was on campus.
Theres a lot of options, even more if you have work study. Lab jobs/reserach are rarely paid, but result in invaluable experience. Internship potential is great for biotech/computer science.
What about political science?
There are professors doing Poli Sci research, you could prolly work for them with a workstudy. Prolly most of those positions given to grad students though.
To interact and contribute on College Prowler, registration is required. Don't worry, it's free, secure, and only takes a few minutes.

Finding off-campus housing for the first time can be a nerve-racking experience. Finding housing is not difficult, but finding affordable housing can be. Living in La Jolla is convenient because of the close proximity to school, but it is very expensive. To offset the cost of living in La Jolla, most students have three or four roommates. There are various advantages to living in La Jolla: It’s a safe neighborhood, it’s close to campus, there are tons of apartments available, all of the apartments are relatively new and well-maintained, and it’s also close to the beach. La Jolla can be a great place to live, and there are some apartment deals if you look hard enough.
It can also be an advantage to move out of La Jolla. Other popular cities close to campus are Pacific Beach, Clairemont, University City, and Mira Mesa. Rent is usually cheaper in these areas, and they are almost as nice as La Jolla. For students who choose to live farther from campus, the main complaint is the commute. There are usually not direct bus routes to school, which causes the commute by bus to be unbearably long. There is also a lot of traffic in the mornings and evenings on the freeways, and it is always a challenge to park on campus. If you don’t mind driving and dealing with parking, then moving out of La Jolla would be for you. Otherwise, most students decide to find roommates or pay a little extra in rent so they can live in La Jolla and have an easier commute to campus.
