What is your overall opinion of this school?

I commuted to California Baptist University for my first bachelor’s degree, a Bachelor of Science Health Sciences, emphasis upon Pre-Physician Assistant Studies. From September 2013 through May 2017, I completed my undergraduate degree and was able to view and be a part of many stories. Looking back on the first time as an undergraduate and now enrolling in California State University San Marcos nursing program, I could honestly say I learned just the right amount of information necessary to prepare for my career. I have been a part of night rallies for basketball games, student memberships for health sciences, and part of a research methods course that allowed my research group to present our project in a research colloquium. Coming from high school where I was very shy and loathed public speaking to a major university was a big step for me. I learned how to become more sociable, meet new people, without hesitation, and even be a part of major group presentations. One of the most nerve-wracking group presentations I was a part of and will never forget is when I had to present about the dangers of Gonorrhea for my medical terminology class. Eight people including myself had to present a project about that subject to a class of about roughly 100 students. Only a professional school with many prospective medical professionals as students could result in a classroom with students who do not snicker or laugh at presenters speaking about a rather private topic. Should that classroom represent the entire student body, then they would be apt examples of how professional and educational the entire university truly is as an institution of higher learning. All in all, California Baptist University allowed for me to come out of my shell and accomplish many feats I believe I never could have accomplished because I was always encouraged and treated with such professional guidance and respect that I personally believe other educational institutions should follow their admirable example.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

It is not the typical college experience, but it is a good environment for students to grow academically and spiritually. One of the best things about CBU is that the professors are generally very willing to help and there are other outside sources for academic assistance.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

CBU is a BEAUTIFUL campus where students and visitors are able to enjoy a great time with the people there and around the campus. Not only are the people there friendly and enjoy meeting new people, they are more than willing to strike up a conversation with anyone and everyone. They constantly want to keep an open mind as well as learning more about Jesus Christ. Their chapel services that they have are open to the public and that is something that is important to me and to any other Christian. I am glad that they do not close off their gates when it comes to others learning about Christ. Not only are their professors ready and willing to maintain a relationship with Christ, but also with their students. That is something that a student should look forward to when applying to colleges; a relationship with their professors. Professors that will lift students up academically and spiritually. All together that is what CBU has to offer; not to mention their great food (rated #2 in the U.S.A.) and their great on-campus living area! They are by far an amazing college that I would send my future children to.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I absolutely love it here! I knew that it was the place for me when I first stepped onto the campus; it felt like home. This is only my first year here, but I have met so many amazing students and faculty members that make life on campus so enjoyable. The Christian community is incredibly uplifting, and everyone has always been so friendly. I can't imagine having gone to school anywhere else!

What is your overall opinion of this school?

California Baptist University was the best fit for me being a believer. I have grown very much spiritually, and I am blessed to say that I have found friends who are not only on the same page as me but also motivate me to grow even more. The campus is absolutely beautiful, the students are amazing, I really feel like I am home when I am walking on campus and I see people that I know. The staff is very welcoming and caring as well as genuine with their positive attitude towards you. When I compare all my years of going to school I can truly now say with confidence that I have never been more comfortable learning at a university. The university gives it their all to make you have the best experience on campus. This can be experienced in the food, clubs, extracurricular activities, and also in the classroom. There is truly not a better place for me to learn. The best part about the education you receive is that the professors that teach you are actually well experienced in their areas because most have worked in the areas they teach. The campus itself helps students decompress when needed because there are so many great spots where students can just sit within nature and relax for a bit. There are even moments when studying seems enjoyable because I set my blanket outside on the grass on a nice day and take in the beauty while also taking in the knowledge. It is an absolutely amazing campus and I am glad that I was placed here to live my purpose out.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

California Baptist University is a private campus located in Riverside, California. It is 160 acres with a very majestic clean campus. What I love about this college is the quality food, christian environment, and class involvement. For the 2019 rankings California Baptist University was ranked number 7 in the nation and number 2 in California for quality food. With 7 different locations options including special dieting and excellent customer service it's no wonder that this is the case. Especially as a college student nutrition is important and at this campus you get food for whatever your hungry needs are. As a kid who grew up Christian it was always hard to feel like I belong. All the way up to middle school I experienced ridicule for my faith in the public school system. In high school my parents worked up the money to send me to a Christian campus and this was where I realized private school was the choice me. Even though the balance for a private university was a lot more money, it was worth it as I now get to feel comfortable with my beliefs with my peers. We often pray for one another and have constant bible studies which is something I love and am passionate about. Here at this campus I feel my faith has grown and it helps that I friends who get to experience that with me. Because we are a private university our class sizes are often about 20-30 students maximum if they are not smaller. Due to the small class size there is often more engagement as a student to ask questions and become more involved. In other universities there is often hundreds of kids and it is easy to fall in with the crowd. In a limited amount of students you get more clarity for the subject as the professor is right there to guide you in every step. Due to the many great attributes of this University my overall opinion would be highly satisfied. The great sum of money paid to attend this college is worth the great experience of learning and growing both as a student and as a child of God.
