What is your overall opinion of this school?

My opinion of this beautiful campus is that for starters, when you drive in the campus, you feel welcomed by our security and then the scenery welcomes you. The cross that is probably the first thing you will notice once you start driving in is a beautiful symbol of how dedicates the school is to teaching the students everything they can about God. The classrooms just scream "welcome, these rooms are cozy size", you feel so good in your classes because they are small meaning that there are less students and more professors to work with which to me as a student is such a blessing because I would never be able to attend huge universities because I wouldn't be able to receive that one on one experience I need with my professor that I need to help me get through the year. When you walk in the cafeteria, it is basically a small buffet and there are pretty tasty choices and the food is prepared fresh everyday and this is coming from someone who loves food a lot. The programs here are taken seriously because professors value education and do not want the students to waste their time, money and efforts in a program that does not fulfill their education needs. Overall I would say that I will stay here in school and do not plan on leaving because the community here is just very friendly and so peaceful and let's be honest, you cannot beat that ocean view because it is just a very scenic view, you get to study right next to the ocean so if you are every bored then just walk down to the cliffs and admire the view or go surfing because we do have a surfing class here for those who love to surf. I am not a surfer myself but I do recommend this school for those who do surf, The dorms here are very friendly and if you have trouble making friends then before you know it, you'll be hanging out with some lovely people. This school has been my school of choice since I was in 8th grade and fell in love with the ocean view because it just has this peaceful feeling of welcoming all those who enter. I will for sure love to see more people come here.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

PLNU is a great university. It has something for everyone and everyone feels included. It challenges you in areas of faith, academics, health, and many other areas. The people and teachers there are amazing, and I love it for that. It is also right on the beach, so thats a huge plus. It is also not a big school, so you feel like you know most people. It is also not to small, so you still get the college feels. It is great!

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I personally like it; this type of school best fits those who come from a religious upbringing or for those who feel that the Christian religion is an important factor for their personal growth and everyday life. The school is relatively small so there is this strong idea of the campus itself being a community among students living within school grounds. What I really like is that the professors are actually there to help you; they actively go out of their way to talk to students and actually want to help them to strive for success. Many of my professors openly encourage us students to go talk to them in their offices and I've seen faculty openly go out of their way to talk to students one on one to see how they're doing academically and spiritually. Another thing which is super nice about this school is the view; the school is situated in the Sunset Cliffs area which means that student access and view of the beach is greatly accessible; if you are a beach lover and love to see the coast as well as the sun set within the ocean waves, this is the campus for you.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Point Loma Nazarene University has its ups and downs. Personally, I love the campus, people, professors, and classes. As a student in the nursing program, the course load is rigorous and does not allow for much time to participate in other extracurricular activities. But, the general student body is very active in the community, with volunteering and serving opportunities.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Point Loma Nazarene University mesmerizes visitors as soon as their eyes overlook the outstretching ocean resting beneath the famous Sunset cliffs. For many students, the gorgeous view and the ocean's accessibility are enough to commit then and there; however, once their first semester begins these people start to slowly second guess their immediate decision for all the university's misconceptions. One of the greatest appeals for the university is its close proximity to the beach, yet with this distance comes "surf shack" like dorms that are kept to a low cleanly standard. Additionally, there are few sports and intramural teams offered, making those who desire an active college experience limited. Furthermore, the cafeteria is more tolerable than students tend to illustrate, having consistent food groups offered and tasty choices rotated throughout the week. Although there are days without any new or improved options, the cafeteria always has food to offer.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

PLNU is a great school to attend with it has great class sizes, a friendly culture, and an amazing staff/faculty. The professors are easy to get in touch with and with the smaller class size, there is always a way to ask questions and are always ready to help when needed. Not only that but they always seem to care and are interested in our lives.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Point Loma Nazarene University is a highly regarded school with rigorous academics and a beautiful campus. I lived on campus my freshman year and it was so amazing to be living within walking distance of the beach! I was able to study on the cliffs, take classes with an ocean view, and meet all sorts of different people.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I am so glad that I chose to attend Point Loma Nazarene University. The campus is beautiful, which provides a great break from studying. But I was impressed by the sense of community that permeates across campus, the accessibility to my professors, and the overall experience. This has become one of my favorite places and designates one of the best times of my life. While PLNU might not be for everyone, everyone is welcome. I am grateful that I had the opportunity to attend.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Aside from the breath taking view that the campus offers of the Pacific Ocean symbolizing the vast opportunities that the school provides for students, Point Loma Nazarene University is one of those places where community is alive and everyone is on a spiritual journey, yet no one is left alone. Coming to this school has offered me so much hope, faith, and enjoyment in the journey that I am on and it also allows me to look at the world with a broader and bigger perspective. The school really touches base with unity, and the importance of building off of the resources and others around us in order that we might all go through our journey to become the best we can be. It really is a place where people are meant to thrive, students are meant to grow and faith is an important aspect of everyone's life that is not overlooked, no matter where we may come from.
