This urban immersion is an opportunity for students to embark on a four-day experiential learning trip in the heart of Los Angeles. L.A. 101 offers a unique opportunity to come face-to-face with tremendous ethnic, socio-political, and economic diversity. Participants will meet community organizers, direct-service providers, church leaders, and others whose lives are dedicated to positive community transformation and advocacy. L.A. 101 endeavors to encourage a more comprehensive understanding of the world around us, and examine the implications of the privilege or disadvantage that social position provides.

Azusa 101 is a four-day trip where students learn more about the community we live in by visiting local schools, nonprofits, and businesses. Through discussion and intentional programming, students examine what it means to love one’s neighbor by expressing justice, compassion, and reconciliation in our local context. The facilitated four-day experience happens once each semester.
As one of six intentionally planned “theme weeks” within Student Life, Justice Week seeks to raise awareness about the connectedness of justice issues and our faith in Christ. This week of conversation, programs, chapels, and experiential learning activities offers students, faculty, and staff an opportunity to learn together how to better love God and neighbor.
