It is on a bluff on the west end overlooking Marina Del Rey and Venice Beach. From my on campus apartment I had a view of the ocean all the way to the Hollywood sign and downtown. The campus itself is really beautiful even though it lacks a single architectural style. For some reason they gave that up the one they used for the chapel and first two main buildings they built. It's now a grab bag of whatever the hell was in when each building was built. That said it's still way more aesthetically pleasing than Loyola Law which is downtown.
Looking down alumni mall towards Sacred Heart Chapel.
Looking up at LMU on the bluff. (l-r Sacred Heart Chapel, Xavier Hall, Jesuit Residence and, and on campus housing.)
Now I see. It's the old, "sweet-classical-styled-undergrad/law-school-is-a-middle-school-shithole-so-ugly-we-hid-it-in-another-zip-code-like-your-crazy-uncle bait and switch." Quite sad that so many colleges decided to tack on token law schools during the worst period in all of architectural history.
LOL hilarious. Though not entirely accurate. Loyola Law has been around for a while. Sometime in the 80's they thought it would be a good idea to get a not yet famous Frank Gehry to redesign the law school. As you can see he lacked talent even way back then.
