“I strongly encourage attendees to consider staying on campus during their stay in Los Angeles. You can sleep in a bit later and don’t have to rely on the bus to take you to campus. The dorm area overlooks the Pacific Ocean and the bluffs, allowing you to enjoy a stunning view of L.A.’s Westside – from Santa Monica to Hollywood. The rooms are clean, large, and bright, and each comes with a full size kitchen and standard refrigerator, waiting to be stocked with your favorite food and drinks! Lastly, there’s the opportunity to relax, socialize, and make lasting memories with your fellow Institute attendees. You just can’t beat it!”
