Rolando is the eastern piece of the College area neighborhoods that stretches from the edge of the school to the 8 East freeway. Although it is not that big, the cost of living is affordable, especially for kids, so you will see most students living in the area. Because of the demand for student housing, income property is abundent. The Campus Plaza shopping Center is the closest mall that the students have to them at State besides Mission and Fashion Valley. Considering most students don’t have cars, this is always packed and a relatively safe area to live in with very little nightlife but a decent area to find restaurants to enjoy a meal.
