The University of Redlands, an oasis in the concrete jungle of Los Angeles. The most beautiful college campus I have ever seen. Combine the exceptional community, academics, small class sizes (largest class I've had was 35 people), variety of extracurricular activities, and accessible college town and Redlands is the only college I can see myself attending.

I dislike Redlands for many reasons. Students are forced onto an outrageously priced meal plan no matter whether they are staying on or off campus. For example, a hamburger and fries costs about $7 without a drink, and an icecream sandwich can net you $4-6. The campus is racist, with only minorities working the 'dirty' jobs such as ground crews, dish washers, and custodians, while only caucasians are a part of Public Safety. This has lead to minorities being kicked off of the public parts of campus just because they "appear sketchy" when the University is open to the public during the day. Finally, the University is outrageously priced (around $60k a year), and the financial aid office is uncaring as to how this affects you. If you accidentally go over your meal budget they are unwilling to try and find alternative ways to feed you, and will instead turn a blind eye while you eat nothing.

I really like this school. It has small class sizes that are perfect if you want a lot of attention from your professors. I had a professor my freshman year that had coffee and doughnuts every Tuesday so that if students had any questions about his class they could drop in and chat. It is a beautiful campus with an awesome location that is close to the beach, the mountains, Joshua Tree National Park, and the city. Besides all of that, the people here are fantastic. There is a wonderful sense of community on this campus that was unparalleled by any other school I visited.
The library. You can find a quiet nook, a table by the windows, computer labs, collaborative learning spaces, the lounge full of other students studying, or outside study space. Whatever study environment you're looking for, you can find it at the library.
Immediately off campus you'll find student and family housing. Past that you'll find grocery stores, target, chain restaurants, local restaurants, the movie theatre, shopping, historical buildings, yoga studios, dance studios, rock climbing gyms etc. If you're willing to take a short drive then there are some incredible outdoor experiences to take advantage of. Big Bear Mountain is about 45 minutes away. There's great hiking, rock climbing, skiing, snow boarding and a lake!! Joshua Tree National Park is also about 45 minutes away. In Joshua Tree you'll find incredible rock climbing, back packing, hiking, camping and more. The beach is about an hour and a half away and L.A. is about an hour away (depending on the traffic).
There are too many of those days to count so I'll just tell you about the most recent one. Last Saturday I got off work around 11 am and went to the cafeteria for lunch. I ran into five of my friends and we sat down to eat. After lunch we decided to go to the soccer game. It was a beautiful day and the game was great. After the game we went to my dorm and made cookies. Then we went out to dinner in town, delicious!! When we got back on campus everyone was getting excited for the evening events so we got ready to go out. In the end, though, we were having so much fun we never left my friends house and ended up watching a movie and eating cookies. It was just one of those beautiful days when everyone was excited to be out and about and happy just to be with each other.
The sprinkler system. It turns on at the worst times and it soaks the side walks. We have a lot of Environmental Studies students or people who are just passionate about environmental issues and we don't like to see the water wasted. Besides all that, we don't like getting soaked on our way home.
There are two separate stereotypes. One is that we have a lot of jocks and one is that we have a lot of hippies. That doesn't really make much sense, and neither of them are very true. I think that we're all a little bit of both and everything in between.
There are two separate stereotypes. One is that everyone is preppy, and the other is that everyone is a hippie.
I'm not on one of our competitive sports teams so I can only give the outsiders opinion. Our sports teams are amazing. Of our 21 teams this year only 2 are ranked below 3rd place. Our women's softball team has won our conferance championship for the past 7 years. Last year our men's water polo team was ranked 1st in the nation for division three schools. I love going to athletic events. My favorite sport to go support is soccer. All of our teams have a lot of support because its a small school. You know someone on every sports team so you go out to support you friends!
Beautiful! You drive into campus on Colton Avenue and on either side of you'll see green grass and lots of palm trees. You wil also see a gorgeous view to your left of our Chapel and a back drop of snow peaked mountians (depending on the season). To your right you will see our Admissions building standing on top of a hill, overlooking the campus. Its breathtaking.
Small and personal. You really get one on one attention from your professors. The average class size is 18-22 students. My largest class this semester has about 20 students and my smalles has about 15. Most classes are discussion based students are very involved. Speaking of which, my class is starting now I have to go!!!
Nah. No stereotype is ever really accurate. One of the first things that I noticed when I visited this campus was that there was no "type." Everyone seemed to have their own style and sense of self. It was really refreshing after looking at a lot of liberal arts colleges that did seem to have a type. This one just seemed like everyone was doing their own thing and happy to be interacting with others doing something completely different.
I love it. Its a wonderful school filled with wonderful people, the academics are great, and the campus is beautiful. I really only have one complaint and that is simply that the sprinklers always turn on right when I'm walking by them. But there are far worse things that could happen. This is a great school!
There are so many activities and groups on campus that its hard to say. Most students are involved in 5 or 6 different organizations on campus, however, about 20% of our student body is involved in Greek life which is probably largest group.
Our bumper stickers currently say "Dare to be different, you'll fit right in." Its kind of cheesy but its very true. Everyone on campus is very unique in their interests, their beliefs, they way they look, dress and act. Its something I value about the U of R. The only underlying constant would be that most students are liberal. Its not true of everyone but it is true the vast majority.
Class sizes are small, about 18-22 students on average. It allows for a lot of face time with your professors. They really ask a lot of you because they know you personally and know what you're capable of. They are also willing to work with you and get you any help you need. So while the academics are challenging, we are given plenty of resources to make sure that the challenge can be met.

Study harder in high school. Learn to balance work and play time. The best thing about college is freedom, but do not over do it. Balance, balance is key. Find the balance between study time, date nights, movie nights, parties, and club gatherings. Study hard, make sure your GPA is above 3.5. Be proactive, network more, socialize, and DO INTERNSHIPS! The best thing about college is finding yourself, but find it faster.
The MBA program has a diverse academic rigors in offering different types of programs from many of the top business schools. It's like Harvard MBA work but at only a third of the cost.
The alumni network varies from campus to campus.
Beautifully kept atmosphere for personal and academic growth that is nurtured by professors and fellow students alike.

Alex, don't stress about leaving the comforts of your home. Even though it seems scary to leave your best friends, boyfriend, and family, living on campus at a four year university will be the best decision you ever make in your life. The independence you yearned for all throughout high school will be fulfilled to the farthest depths that you never even knew was possible. Trust that you can handle yourself, and trust that college will be the best years of your life. Don't hold on too tightly to the bonds you have at home, be ready to loosen those grips in order to allow yourself to make knew ones in your new home. There is nothing more you can do to mentally and physically prepare yourself for what is to come, so just be ready to take the experience for what it is and make the most of it. Refrain from contemplating if you believe you are ready to leave home or not, because you are. Once you get settled in school you will realize all the work you did in high school was worth it and you'll never be happier.
The best aspect about the University of Redlands would be its student size. Being at such a small undergraduate school allows students to thrive in the classroom and receive any extra aid. It is extremely easy to communicate and get to know the professors on a intimate and personal level that simply is not possible at large public universities. A small school also allows for students to make bonds and connections with people that share similar interests and strive for the same level of academic growth.

If I could go back to my high school self, I would tell her to study harder and strive for the best grades I could possibly achieve. I would tell her not to spend her money on useless things, but instead put that money in her savings for college. I would also prepare her for harder classes and more work load, and make sure she's organized and ready for that. She will have better time management and not procrastinate.
I wish I had known how the classes were set up and the schedule the school goes by. This school is semesterly, but they are very short semesters. This means that we have to learn everything in a month less than most other institutions. This makes it a challenge to keep up with the material and do well on tests.
Students who are willing to put school as their number one focus in their life should attend University of Redlands. Students who put their very best effort in everything they do, and who will never give up, should attend University of Redlands.

Don't get lazy. Lazyness will only cause you to stress and worry all the time. Stay on top of everything you need to do. You know how to make good choices, so don't second guess yourself. Your life is yours and who cares what people think of you.
THe people here are kind. I've made really great friends here.
People who have money issues.

Steve, you should ask Debbie to the Prom! With that said, be determined about continuing your education! You have the brains to do it, you've just got to be determined and know that there is more than one way to do it. No, you don't need to further your education, this is true. But, it is worth far more than you can imagine, as well as presents more opportunities than you currently think. I believe that furthering your education would have given you more of an ability to recognize a door to opportunity or an offer to something better. College will help you build relationships and networks of people that care about you. If you figure out a way to go to college right after high school, calculus won't be so dang hard then going back to school when your 55! Please believe me when I tell you that not getting to college will haunt your entire life, up until the day that you do make it back to college. Nothing should be more important to you right now, then furthering your education. Oh, and get your college so you can be an officer when you enlist!

Redalnds in known for having a diverse community in which individuals can thrive in whatever area of academia they wish to pursue-- whethere it is arts, science, music, education, or business. It isknown for a hands-on education that is best for the student, moreover an education a student can enjoy. It's a small school that has big successes. Attending Redlands made me realize that small, discussion-style classes and community involvement really help people learn best.
A supportive community and challenging education where you can find the best version of yourself and help others do the same.
Your life is a tumultuous thing right now. All the advice-giving adults you know are saying how important this next year is; so first—take a deep breath. I’ll tell you what I wish we’d known when at seventeen. First, this is not an end, but a beginning. Don’t be afraid to step forward into unknown things—academically, socially, personally, geographically. Second, savor the “good ol’ days” you’re in now. Be a high-school senior while you can. The future will be here faster than you know it. Third, leave the worry and gut-wrenching anxiety of SAT, ACT, and AP scores behind. NO ONE GIVES A DAMN about them in college. Lastly, college won’t solve every problem you’ve ever had or be a magical place of perfect experiences. It will be challenging and extraordinary. It will sometimes be lonely and heartbreaking. It will be a place where you decide who you will be—where you end up with the right regrets. When you graduate high school, reexamine how far you’ve come, know how proud of you your future-self is, and realize how much more you’ll get to experience.
