New to LA? We've got just the trip for you!
This is the perfect opportunity for students unfamiliar with Los Angeles to encounter the diversity of arts and cultures in our immediate Eagle Rock community and in the greater Los Angeles area. OxyEncounters trips feature tours of art and cultural centers around Los Angeles.
Icons of Los Angeles ($450)
Explore the mainstays of Los Angeles. Over the course of three days, participants will traverse the cultural landscape of Los Angeles exploring museums, studios, music venues, theaters, restaurants and alternative spaces. From MOCA on Bunker Hill to the cliffs-top views of the Getty, from the spanning garden of The Huntington to the artist studios of Highland Park, and from the glossy bakeries on La Brea to the Skirball Cultural Center. This trip is a crash course to those new to the Southland.
Los Angeles UNDERGROUND ($450)
Underground focuses on those areas of Los Angeles often overlooked and hidden away from the masses. We've asked our students what they wish they had known about as first year students, this trip is the answer. Take in the sights of the LA river on a unique graffiti tour, make tamales with "Mama", stroll the boardwalk of Venice Beach, and see a concert in MacArthur Park. Los Angeles Underground is a departure from your typical sight seeing tour.
Los Angeles has a rich history in the film and television industry. Join fellow first year students on studio tours, see the behind the scenes of your favorite shows, and be part of a studio audience!(Pending availability) As part of OxyEngage Hollywood, you will stroll down the walk of fame, tour the Dolby Theater (formerly known as the Kodak Theater) , and take in a movie at Mann's Chinese Theater. Students will visit Hollywood museums and see the famous wax figures at Madame Tussaud's Hollywood. This trip is a must for anyone interested in show business.
Los Angeles North and South ($450)
Los Angeles is a great city, but we are a mere hours away from some other great places too! North and South will showcase two of those great places: Santa Barbara and San Diego. Spend a day exploring the Mediterranean-like community of Santa Barbara, which is nestled between the Santa Ynez Mountains and the Pacific Ocean. Spend the next day exploring the 8th largest city in the country, San Diego. Spend the day combing the streets of "Old Town" or head to the waterfront and explore the downtown area! We'll wrap up North and South by showing you some highlights that Los Angeles has to offer, a primer to explore the city that will be your home for the next four years.
