Location is everything.

Have all the big city amenities without all the big city hassles. SCU's campus offers you several advantages over other West Coast schools of chiropractic and acupuncture:

Convenience. Peaceful, yet centrally located, Whittier is easily accessible along the 605 Freeway between the 60 and the 5 Freeways. On the edge of Orange County, Whittier is within a short distance hundreds of Southern California attractions, as well as the Los Angeles, Orange County, Ontario, and Long Beach airports.

Learning environment. You'll be able to focus on your studies on our campus — nestled in a quiet residential area of Whittier — and yet be only minutes from a wide variety of dining, shopping, recreation, and entertainment options.

A real college campus. You'll find plenty of open spaces — including The Glen, the focal point of our 25-acre tree-lined campus — to study, relax, and soak up the sun. Add our high-tech facilities — including a 12,000-square-foot healthcare center, complete anatomy lab, and learning resource center and you have a campus that's unparalleled among West Coast chiropractic and acupuncture universities.

No traffic jams. You'll encounter very little of the bumper-to-bumper traffic that's so typical in Southern California. And once you arrive on campus, you'll be able to park for free in a secure lot.

Affordable housing. You'll find an abundance of reasonably priced apartments and houses within a short driving — or even walking — distance of campus. Housing costs in Whittier are considerably less than most areas of Southern and Northern California.

You'll feel right at home in a culturally diverse, physically active, and socially attuned Southern California community where what some consider the alternative is actually the mainstream.
