  • Visiting L.A., I looked at a school friend's workplace: I was expecting a nerdy, sterile tech center. What I saw: A large campus with rich flora, fountains and cafes. Funny, moreover, the big "gene pool". Many buildings are new, they testify to the importance and international reputation of the university. Most of the architecture, however, dates back to the golden years of California's final development, magnificent Art Deco with influences of the Spanish-Mexican Haciendastils. If you are tigering around in Pasadena, you should treat yourself to the Kampus.

  • I took my high schooler here to tour the campus. I have lived in LA all my life and had never visited. The campus is very beautiful with a lot of old buildings as the University was established in the 1800s. It was Thanksgiving break so the campus was empty but I saw locals walking dogs, etc. enjoying the ambiance.
