The Allan Hancock College Santa Maria campus is located on California's beautiful
Central Coast, halfway between Los Angeles and San Francisco. The campus lies about 35
miles south of San Luis Obispo, 60 miles north of Santa Barbara, and about 10 miles
from the ocean. The 105-acre, park-like setting contains administration and academic
departments housed in nearly three dozen buildings. The campus features a modern
Student Center; the Sports Pavilion, including the Joe White Memorial Gymnasium; and
the Marian and Severson theatres, home of the Pacific Conservatory of the Performing
Arts, the only training program of its kind in the country offered by a community
college. Other recent additions to the campus are the remodeled and expanded library/Academic
Resource Center and new community education and science buildings. Plans are currently
under way to develop and build a new Student Services One-Stop Center, an expanded
Children's Center, and new fine arts and industrial technology facilities.

"The academy has shown me a lot more than I even suspected. It's showed me the physical demands that you need to reach and the instructors push you over the limits just so that when go to do the real thing you can achieve that. You'll push yourself and eventually reach the limits that you thought you were never capable of. You get really hands-on with all your crew and working with each of the instructors. The most valuable thing that I've learned in the academy is learning to work to your own level of excellence. Being at the college has been a great experience."
