I am a transfer student from cc, I'm thinking of renting a room and share it with my friend near ucla campus, and take around 10 minutes to walk to the campus. I just worried if I walk home alone at night, like after 7 when its getting dark, is it safe? Also, is living on campus really helpful for meeting new people? I wish I could do some networking, but I don't really want to live on campus...Please give me some advice! Thank you!
