Visitor's Guide

Our campus is located in San Rafael, California, which is a small city of 57,700. San Rafael is filled with parks, shopping, restaurants, museums and historic sites, an amazing farmer’s market, and a civic center designed by famed architect Frank Lloyd Wright. This lively California town offers seasonal concerts, art walks, a film festival, and plenty of other events throughout the year. We’re also close to some of the most exciting, historic, and beautiful places in the Golden State, from hiking in ancient redwoods, to exploring the wine country, to watching big wave surfers at Ocean Beach.
