What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

Search around, even if it takes a while. Going to a Junior Colllege first will really help financially and, if your student doesn't know what they want to do, it will allow them to figure it out. While in college, take every opportunity to meet new people. You never know what connections will help you later in life.

What do you consider the worst thing about your school? Why?

ltoo many restrictions on social life as welll as changing social environment.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

Finding the right college: Make sure it corresponds with your ideologies. Make sure it has a strong department for your major. Make sure you can afford it (with financial aid, if need be). Try not to go into debt. Don't go to a college only because your folks want you to, but also don't be stubborn about rejecting their suggestions. Making the most of the college experience: Focus on your studies! The better you do, the more prepared you will be for your profession, and the more organized and responsible you will be. But, don't get so caught up in your books that you neglect making good, solid friendships. Be spontaneous (but not stupid) every once in a while. Get involved with some type of community service or ministry, even if it's helping with next year's orientation.

What do you consider the worst thing about your school? Why?

Financial Aid here is not as abundant as it is in other private universities.

In my major, there aren't very many classes for my emphasis.

Be practical about your choice! Find out what your priorties are first. If your faith is first pick a religious college. Then find out what schools have the programm for your major! After you picked your college find out what activities you like and join them, dont let self doubt prevent you from joing a group, club, and outings. and lastly prioritze your time!

Describe the students at your school.

My classmates are socialy connected, well-dressed, artistic, and very tolerant of many different viewpoints unless it attributes to the charismatic movement.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

I struggled through a lot of indecisiveness when it came to picking out a good college for me. I just knew though that I did not want to follow in the footsteps of so many others before me who purposely only applied to UCs. I opted to apply to states and private liberal art Christian colleges. Both were on incredible different spectrums but I was adamant to be different. My parents were wonderful in allowing me to have the freedom to do this which is saying a lot because our values ranging from how a relationship with Christ should be to what is considered beauty in the realm of art. In the end, the decision is yours to make so do not be swayed by your parents or even your peers when it comes to picking a college for yourself. Any decision one makes for a college, a new road will start, a new beginning, and that is a beautiful thing in life.

What do you consider the worst thing about your school? Why?

The worst thing about my school is always finding out someone has to leave the school due to the university being too expensive.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

Choosing a college was extremely confusing and stressful for me, but if I did it, so can you! Attend a few college fairs and talk with the admissions counselors. Don't let the horrific amount of catalogs, post cards, and pencils overwhelm you. You can narrow your options by asking a few simple questions. First, does the school have the major that you are interested in? If yes, what is the size and quality of that program? Second, is the school located in an area that you would like to live in? For example, if it is located in Alaska but hate snow, cross that one off your list. Don't immediately reject schools far away from home. Moving away has allowed me to make amazing friends. Third, what kind of financial aid is available? Can you afford to go there? When you have narrowed your choices down to 2-3 schools, it's best to tour and stay over night at each of them so you get a feel for the atmosphere of the school and whether or not you feel at home there. Don't go home until Christmas first semester- this helps bolster friendships and conquer homesickness.

What kind of person should attend this school?

I think that Biola is perfect for anyone who wants to be challenged academically as well as in their Christian faith. I LOVE the school and I have not met anyone who doesn't.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

In looking for a college the first hing you should look at is weather the school has what you need. Are the professors known in there field? Do people who graduate in my major progressing in life? Things like this will help you narrow your selection of schools. Be sure to visit all the schools you are considering, (atomsphere is very important). Once you select a school and start attending get involved. You only get to be in college once, (well for most people its once). Join clubs, teams or student government it will make your time more enjoyable.
