Orange County Campus

Visually-Stunning Campus that Inspires Creativity

Orange County Campus


The Orange County campus is strategically located in the heart of the action sports apparel industry. A mecca for those pursuing the skate, surf, snow, and motocross apparel industries, this part of Southern California is home to the headquarters of companies including Vans, Volcom, Hurley, Oakley, and Fox Racing, to name a few.

Designed by world-renowned architect Clive Wilkinson, the award-winning campus is a dynamic visual experience with ultra-modern lofts, an indoor/outdoor student lounge, eye-popping colors, and a one-of-a-kind audio visual igloo.
