  • “Foregrounds” is a show exploring how we listen to sounds. It utilizes field recordings by blending songs and spoken word pieces with the soundscapes in which we listen to them – whether it be played along with Los Angeles traffic, the sound of a meal being prepared, or waves at the beach. Presented by DJ Derek (Corn), DJ Nasera (Alayon), DJ Max (Miles) of the Otis Radio class.

Financial aid can be applied towards travel study programs. The first step for any student interested in financial aid is to complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). Apply online at www.fafsa.gov. Visit the financial aid office at www.otis.edu/financial-aid or Ahmanson Building, 203 Mon - Fri 8:30am - 5pm Tel: 310 665 6880 for details.
Students studying abroad are also eligible to apply for additional loans and in some cases grants and scholarships to help pay for the trip. Students in travel study programs have extra expenses such as transportation costs. This is taken into consideration when awarding financial aid.
No aid can be disbursed before classes begin; therefore, students will be responsible for all deposits. Planning ahead of time for funds to arrive ahead of time is critical.
