What is your overall opinion of this school?

Coming from a small town, I was used to going to school in a smaller setting. Transitioning from home to the University was very easy, and there is a small town feel with this school, for it is a small community of students compared to larger Universities. I can walk the campus and see smiling friendly people that I know almost every time. The professors are there for the students and will do anything they can to ensure that their students are successful. The class sizes are small, and the relationship with students is amazing, for there are always study groups, small groups, gatherings or events to keep everyone involved. The Universities food services is one of a kind, and I have no complaints about the food itself. It is not the typical cafeteria, for the food is amazing, people serving are always friendly, and there is always a good variety. The campus is well maintained by the staff, and campus housing is the best, for they are apartment complexes that have been purchased by the University.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I see California Baptist University as a place, not only where students can further their education, but as a place to harvest a spiritual relationship with the Lord. The faculty and students are invested in their studies and make it very easy to get help with just about anything. The campus has one of the safest auras to it and makes students feel secure and welcomed. The campus living areas are kept up and is most likely to never looked trashed, thanks to students and faculty. The food provided within the campus dining area is also by far the tastiest thing most of the students have ever tasted. The surrounding city of Riverside is also very safe and well kept and has several shops for students to visit.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Since the moment I walked onto the campus, I felt welcome and at home. The staff and volunteers added to this with their warm smiles and helpful attitudes. Classes are various and so are activities, with intriguing majors and fun events. Their main focus is clearly to benefit the student, with free tutoring and scholarship opportunities. And the food! It is clear that renown Food Network chef Jet Tila helped create the menu in one of the many food places on campus. This college is amazing and I feel privileged to be able to attend it.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

In comparison, California Baptist University is one of the best colleges that I had an fortunate opportunity to attend as a student. The staff and students imprint an outstanding involvement in the campus life that would be for certain for a memorable experience. Not only that, but the campus of CBU try to go in their way to assist to better improve the quality of those outside the campus. Whether one is a social butterfly or a wallflower, there is no doubt that everyone will be treated by the same kindness, support, and respect.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I absolutely love everything about CBU. The campus is beautiful, the people are incredible, and the opportunity for growth is amazing. Not only does CBU provide the opportunity to grow academically, but also individually and spiritually. There are so many opportunities to get involved with extracurricular activities, which all contributes to the overall experience.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

California Baptist University is a community based, Christ centered institution. This place is known to all its students as the place they can call home. It is filled with students who are always willing to show new people around and are also willing to share their experience as Lancers. Living on campus can definitely give a completely different experience that commuters may not receive. The school is also filled with resources, such as the Academic Success Center, that the students can use in order to succeed academically.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I went here full time for one semester freshman year: living on campus, taking a full load of classes, and absolutely hated it here. I am not religious, and it is almost impossible to make friends here if you are not attending at least one bible study a week and/or wearing the same conservative dresses as everyone else whilst carrying your overpriced water bottle everywhere humanly possible. After one semester, I decided to commute to campus, and see if the social sphere was really worth transferring. It was, and I withdrew from CBU after one year. I went to this school because they gave very generous financial aid, having me pay almost nothing, but the quality of the education you get here, other than learning about John and Mark, is mostly nothing. I learned less at this school than I did in my senior year of high school (and I tool almost no general education courses, as I tested out of most all the requirements) I would reccomend this school to someone who just came from a private, Christian school, or someone that was extremely involved in church groups and missionary work during their upbringing. If you are any sort of liberal, I would drop the possibility of going to this school, like I wish I had before I even accepted the offer of admission. I would choose to pay for a quality education than spend my time at California Baptist University any day.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

College is a place where you can discover who you really are. As a freshman at California Baptist University, I always felt like I could be my true self. As a Christian myself, attending this private university really helped me feel as if I was not alone in my journey in following Christ. Since partying and drinking was never my thing in high school, I was scared that I would be pressured into doing things I was not comfortable in doing. CBU is a dry campus and is does not have greek life. Although this can be a bummer for others, I did not mind at all. CBU always had activities going on and they even had a 1 day trip to Portland to try out coffee places. Many of these activities are under $100 so they are not priced badly. Professors here really care about your well-being and are really accessible outside of classes. Classes are Christian-based and there is Chapel that is mandatory. The campus is fairly small but in my opinion, it is the perfect size. The campus is always clean and most of the buildings are up to date. The only downfall of CBU is the tuition. It is really expensive here and they do not offer scholarships besides one you have to earn your freshman year. Over I rate this school a 4/5 because in my opinion, it is the perfect environment. I did not give it 5 stars because I would like to see more opportunities for students to get scholarships.
