Six Reasons to Study in San Diego

Los Angeles may get all the press because of Hollywood Street, but on the low, San Diego is the real Hollywood.

You get all of the sun, sand, and surf without the same level of tourism and narcissism. Those in the know understand that some of the most brilliant and most beautiful people in the world come to San Diego to study at one of its many heralded universities! Pretty people and beachside living aside, there are many other reasons to live and study in San Diego.

Let’s take a look at the top six.

Great Off-Campus Housing

Student living in San Diego isn’t like a student living in any other city. If you are lucky (and you have a bit of cash from an excellent part-time job or from dad), you can get off-campus student housing near the beach or near very high end neighborhoods. Not only will you be surrounded with a great environment, but you also have the ability to network with other hard-working students.

Life at Iconic on Alvarado supports all of your moods and modes. You’ll get the dorm experience with the benefits of luxury student housing. We lay a solid foundation, so you have the stability to focus and explore.

Study in Nature

If you get tired of studying in your student apartments, you can take your quest for knowledge into one of the beautiful locations that San Diego offers. Although the cosmopolitan aspect of the city gets most of the press, San Diego is a place of many scenic hiking trails and outdoor living. Study away from the power lines and constant technology for a new experience.

Hoppiness isn’t far from happiness in San Diego. The craft beer experience is massive in this region, with more than 150 breweries, countless beer bars, innovative tasting rooms, and a beer culture that’s undeniably San Diegan.

Great Craft Beer

Let’s not be coy – university is a time to earn your drinking wings! Why not earn them through one of the best craft beer scenes in the nation? By the time you leave, you will have a real taste for what a beer is supposed to taste like, and you may actually be able to enjoy the experience as a mental relaxant and study catalyst [read: drink slowly and have no more than two beer every day]!

The Nightlife

If you’re going to study hard in one of the most competitive cities globally, you need to be able to reward yourself for a job well done. San Diego has a bustling nightlife with any activity that you can think of. Whether you want to go clubbing, lounging, eating or art gallerying, you can do it easily in San Diego!

Inspirational Getaways

Sometimes you need to recharge your batteries, and San Diego provides great proximity to some incredibly inspirational getaways. Try Big Bear Mountain in the winter for snowboarding, Julian to get some of the best cider and apple pie in the world, or check out the beaches in LA, which are only a couple of hours away!

The Relaxed Lifestyle

San Diego is known for its T-shirt and flip-flops lifestyle. You can study anywhere in the city without the stigma of being a “broke student.” Everyone is a broke student, and no one is trying to get a movie contract in Starbucks! Imagine what you can get done if have the chance to actually focus on your studies rather than on your looks!
