Point Loma Nazarene University Top Questions

What kind of person should not attend this school?


I think that PLNU is making small strides towards diversity and social issues. I think people looking for more diversity and a school that does not stress religion/faith then Point Loma is not the right school for them. There is no diversity at this school, the demographic is about 97{4a082faed443b016e84c6ea63012b481c58f64867aa2dc62fff66e22ad7dff6c} white and the stress of faith and religion can be overwhelming and counterproductive most times because it's as if it is being forced. A student who wants their own spiritual journey would not feel at peace here.


Anyone who is involved in drugs, alcohol, or the party scene.


A person who does not want to go to chapel or does not have a religious background or faith would not do well at this University.


If you are looking for a big party school this is not it.


I would not attend this school if you have no desire to have religious affiliation. Point Loma is Nazarine and you have to attend chapel 3 days a week and many of the classes have religious undertones with some professors even praying before classes. So if you have no desire to partake in that type of schooling I would not attend.


Someone who tends to have more conservative attitudes and prefer small class sizes


People wanting to live a party lifestyle


Someone who is made to attend this school. No one should attend this school that is forced, or not really wanting to succeed.


Ultra-liberal or open partiers. No drinking.


It is a great school for anyone looking for a more personal education and reasonable class sizes. All classes are taught by professors and not graduate assistants like at state universities. It is worth the extra money to get a higher quality education.


A person who is looking for a party school and would absolutely hate going to chapel


Anyone who is looking to drink or participate in recreational drug use should avoid this campus. Similarly, those who are not familiar with at least some level of church should probably avoid it since there are mandatory Christian chapels.


People who are going to school just to get the degree, or simply to party hard.


Someone who doesn't like a lot of rules. Someone who hates religion/spirituality. Someone who wants to play inside/video games.
