NDA’s and SUV’s

As you may of heard, Los Angeles is the “city of stars”, but also the city of cars. It was certainly a jump in tempo from my life on the east coast, one that admittedly took some adjusting to. Traffic is a very real part of life, but you better be darned sure that after […]

Dogs! Dogs Everywhere!

California is pretty sweet, and I’m really glad I’ve gotten to experience it. The traffic is not as bad as people say, at least to and from Oakwood and Culver City. Also, people bring their dogs with them to work. It’s awesome. The program is great, I’ve met some incredible people and learned so much. […]

SULA Blog

So far, I have had a wonderful experience in this program. SULA requires personal responsibility, integrity and ambition. You are constantly given guidance and hear personal stories meant to inspire and give students the strength and will to succeed. Everyone wants each other to fulfill their personal journey, and be exposed to the various opportunities […]

SULA

I have had so far, an amazing time with SULA. I feel like the other students in the program are “go-getters” much like myself, something I really respect and motivate to be like everyday. And its not just the students, its largely the staff and professors. After every class I want to burst out running, […]

Driving Into the Sunset

As I approached the end of my ten-day drive, the sunset gave everything a golden shine, and then I got over the final hill to finally see the City of Angels.  And from the moment I drove in, it was nothing but excitement. This program kicks off even when you aren’t even fully moved in.  […]

Welcome to the Real World, Baby

Don’t let the never dying sun fool you. Living in LA can be quite strange. I’m from Orange County and still felt new. It truly is its own world and it is definitely not always wonderful. As someone who wants to pursue film, this place is more frightening than nice, for the safe embrace of […]

Going Above & Beyond

Being a part of SULA has given me countless experiences and opportunities that I would have otherwise never had. I have met people that I would never have dreamed of having the opportunity to meet and I’ve had the amazing experience of touring some of the biggest companies in the entertainment industry. Not only has […]

Avoid Highways

I had driven on the highway approximately four times before coming to Los Angeles. I’m much more familiar with smelly New York City subways than pumping my own gas. When I told my friends I was spending my semester here, their first question was how I was going to get around. While I toyed with […]

West Coast First Timer

For someone who has never been to the west coast before, picking up and moving to LA was definitely one of the most exciting things I have ever done in my entire life. I have known since I was a little girl that I wanted to move out to California and being a part of […]
