Vanguard University is a small, private university nestled in the Southern California coastal city of Costa Mesa. Despite its small size at less than 40 acres, the grounds department maintains an inviting, eco-friendly campus. Outdoor spaces feature agapanthus, bird of paradise, Japanese irises, shady sweet gum, eucalyptus trees, magnolias, jacarandas, and palm trees, to name a few.
