I like this question a lot because some reason, at Biola, all of the colors, whether it is on the buildings or the plants, look enhanced. I think it's amazing that the school still looks nice on a rainy day. Depending on which entrance you take, the Biola Ave or University Dr., You will see either a bell tower that says Biola University, or a board that says it. The University Dr. entrance allows you to get a preview of the on campus (they're off campus but, not really) apartments, some dorms, the field and Crowell Hall (The Music Building). The Biola Ave entrance allows you to see the Business building, a few classrooms and the Talbot School of Theology building as well as a few theaters. There is a Gym not to far from the University Dr. entrance and by the gym, there are food places (Eagle's Nest and Common Ground), The Biola Bookstore, The Student Union Building, The Mailbox Lawn, and the outdoor fireplace. Then across from those things are the Caf and Bardwell Hall which is the Science Building. On the right side of the Gym, there are parking structures and across from the five story parking structure, there is a Baseball field and dorms. If you go up the hill, there are classrooms. Behind Commons and Eagles, there is Floor Fountain and diagonal from that stands the famous Jesus Mural. Parking Lots are all around the campus, mainly on the exterior part. I would strongly advise you to take a tour so this would all make a bit more sense.


I would describe Biola as the best of both worlds. Although it is located in the small, quiet city of La Mirada, it is surrounded by the beach and larger cities that are fun to visit. The campus itself is beautiful, with new buildings or additions happening often. Biola is a fairly small campus compared to most universities, but I have never felt crowded or claustrophobic. It is spread out nicely, but there is never more than a 5 or 10 minute walk to any class. The classrooms are very nice, and the dorms (especially the newer buildings) are some of the best I've ever toured. The overall layout of Biola's campus encourages community, which adds to a wonderful feeling on campus. In short, Biola's campus feels like home in a matter of days.

The President of my University brings his family to the sports events, and eats in the cafeteria. Every Thanksgiving, he and his wife cut the turkey in the cafeteria.
