What is your overall opinion of this school?

Biola University is an amazing school. It was hard adjusting at first. Being away from home and what I was used to, but after a little while it really started to feel like home. I love my dorm. The people are great. My RA’s are very supportive and aware. They really try to make everyone feel at home. The meal plan gives 10-12 meals to the cafeteria every week, depending on which one you get. This is more than enough for me and I always have extra. The food at the cafeteria is pretty good. Even if you do not want what they are serving, you can also count on the salad bar. The mean plan also gives you 150$ per semester to spend on the other restaurants on campus. This is really nice for if you are craving a smoothie or a coffee. I also love my classes and professors. They are pretty difficult because I am in the sciences, but it is worth it. My professors are so engaging and they are always open to questions. The Biology lab is especially nice because you have a chance to ask more in depth questions that were not possible during the lecture. My classmates are also pretty cool. I got really lucky and met some really great friends within the first couple of weeks that are in my major. It is really hard to describe the experience at Biola in a few sentences, but it is just amazing and I am so glad I decided to come here.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

When I was college searching, I said that I would go anywhere EXCEPT Biola University. I ended up applying anyway and got accepted. I chose Biola as my college out of convenience. First semester I told myself I hated it and everyone in it. Second semester I decided to open my mind and it turned out to be amazing! The community and professors are amazing, and I wouldn't trade this school for any other!

Biola University is a diamond amidst the chaos of the city of Los Angeles. With an education that promotes diversity, intellectual conversations, and community, students feel known and valued for who they are as unique individuals. Biola offers an academically rigorous education that is rooted in truth and love. The campus is beautiful, clean and safe and students are encouraged to work hard and dream big.

When I first went on the campus I knew this was the place I wanted to be. I loved the facility, the students, the classes, and simple the atmosphere of the campus. As a Christian, the campus embodied all the things that I believe it and are necessary for me. I totally love it and can't wait to go back.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I was fully supported by the professors in my major department. The required Biblical Studies minor included professors I felt were unqualified or underprepared to teach at the university level. As a social science major, we had enough resources plus an archaeological site on campus. My other major, film production, had many more resources and most professors were well qualified. I loved most of my teachers but school administration did not always make decisions that aligned with students and faculty but more often to appease donors.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

The Bible Institute of Los Angeles is an excellent place to learn. There are many opportunities for students to learn about faith and then practice their faith in the community. Their model of putting education into practice helps students see the importance and relevance of their learning.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I love Biola University. Since coming here I have known that this is the place that God wants me to be. I love my professors and my peers. Everyone receives the same Bible minor which means that there is always a meaningful conversation to be had. I know that Biola cares for me and my well-being. The school offers so many programs to help students and has one of the best campus safety forces in the country. Our film school has been named one of the top 50 film schools in the country and our music is fantastic, too. I chose Biola specifically because of the education program and the fast track it offers toward credentialing. I cannot think of a better environment to be in than Biola University.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

It's a great Christian school with great people and community. If you are looking for a school to grow as an individual and be pushed to be the best you could be, then this is the school for you. The professors are interested in building long-term relationships outside of the classroom as well. The food is better than other schools and the cafeteria looks like a buffet. They have great extracurriculars and events and the library is huge with 3 stories, an eating area, a balcony, many chairs, computers and desks to work on. Overall its a great school with a really good community and relationships as well as a very safe campus.
