Hello,

I have one question to ask you .Below is my question.

1)Obama graduated from high school from a very good, expensive private high school in Honolulu in 1979. He later came to Los Angeles for two years, studying at a college called Occidental, a small private college here in L.A. After two years, he transferred – he moved universities – going to one of the better universities in the U.S., Columbia University in New York City in 1983.

What I don't understand in the above paragraph is

He later came to Los Angeles for two years, studying at a college called Occidental, a small private college here in L.A

Can you paraphrase the sentence above.?

Does the above sentence mean

He later came to Los Angeles for two years and was studying at a college called Occidental, a small private college here in LA.

Some time later (there is no date specified), he went to Los Angeles.
He stayed in Los Angeles for 2 years.

During those 2 years, he studied at Occidental.
Occidental is a small private college in L.A. (Los Angeles)

Would it not be simpler to rewrite this in the following way? Obama graduated from a very good, expensive private high school in Honolulu in 1979.
