What is your overall opinion of this school?

La Sierra University is not an SDA school. They do not show any love or grace that they constantly promote themselves through. Everything is a tactic to make them seem lovable. They swindle freshmen in and take their money. The only good thing about La Sierra is the school of Business and their faculty. The school of business should be a whole separate university. The faculty there care about the well being of students and the potential of students. They do not focus on taking your money. Had I known earlier, I would have stuck with my business major. DO NOT ATTEND THIS SCHOOL unless you go for a business degree. Try to live off campus. The dorms are atrocious and nasty. They have roaches, snakes, and mold. The deans of the dorms only care about money. It is a business. They make you pay so much money to stay over the breaks. This includes out of state and international students. Christmas, Thanksgiving, Spring, and Summer breaks literally cost so much money. They make you pay small fees here and there for absolutely nothing. ALL THIS SCHOOL CARES ABOUT IS MONEY AND STRESSING YOU OUT. The dormitory deans have zero compassion for the residents and what they may be going through in their personal life. All they care about is money and thinking of new ways to charge students an arm and a leg. All of the deans for the resident halls should be replaced. They do dirty sly things behind the residents' backs to get them into trouble. They watch you like a hound dog and always accuse you of engaging in crazy illegal behavior. Do NOT expect love and compassion in the dorms. You will NOT get it. The only reason you should go here is if you plan on receiving a business degree. the Zapara school of business is outstanding and represents everything the university should represent. This school has a lot of issues. The dorm deans do not care about your well being. There are a number of violation of health codes throughout the building such as roaches and mice. There will be no one for you to talk to if you have personal issues. This school has no grace and love. They are WOLVES IN SHEEP'S CLOTHING. I wish I was lying, but I am not. So many things are a front. I understand private religious schools need funding from sponsors, but they front to the sponsors as well. They love to put on a show, but they do not care about the welfare of students. Please do not force your child to come here unless they want a business degree. Most students have to stay an extra year and pay so much money. Please try to get a job so you can afford to live OFF CAMPUS. The devil is at work here. The deans of the residency halls are here to hurt you. The Zapara School of Business has been blessed by God. They are well known, prestigious, and make serious impacts. They will give your student great professional connections and help them to be more innovative. They truly love and care. The rest of the campus is very corrupt. choose wisely.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

La sierra University makes you feel welcome the environment is the best and also because its a small campus you get to make plenty of friends and also because the class size isn't that big either. You get involved a lot and they have great study abroad opportunities.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I love it. Everyone is super helpful and friendly. It is also a lot of fun getting to know everyone. The pastor will sit and talk with you to see how your day has been. The counselors are also extremely helpful and respond almost immediately to any question you may have.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

La Sierra University may not be the first choice many would pick to attend. Although it can be expensive, the material this university has should not be ignored. There is room for diversity of all backgrounds among the staff and students. In the front of the campus lies the beautiful business building. Also, there is an excellent library staff that has no problem helping people. Since La Sierra University is a Seventh-day Adventist institute, there is a focus on health and well-being. The university has the up-to-date technology to aid the students. The campus classes located within have a walking distance of each other.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

La Sierra University is exactly how its' known to be; multicultural and friendly, but overall love to have the presence of God in all of our class lectures. I think starting a class with a prayer on an exam day is the best way because it makes us students feel at ease and peace in our hearts. This university is the best school that I could have ever attended and the primary reason is because the campus faculty make us feel accepted for who we are and there is no racism. In my opinion it is an important base that any school should have. I feel safe when I enter and leave the campus on a dark night knowing that there are security officers who will wait until you get in your car and turn on the engine. Safety is also a salient factor they emphasize. I have not come across professors who use aggressive language or actions or any problems with other students. We all are treated the way any human being should be treated and that is what makes La Sierra University a great campus to pursue our career.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Generally speaking, I really enjoy being a student here. Everyone gets involved in activities, and I think that's really great. A big issue for me, however, is that the campus becomes such a ghost town on weekends! I don't have a car, and so I often have to walk to find something to do, or get a Lyft and go downtown for window-shopping.
