What is your overall opinion of this school?

Vanguard is a small school and very welcoming environment. All of the professors truly care about their students in and outside the classroom. The school is Christian based so chapels and core religion classes are required however the religion is not pushed upon the students.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I really do like Vanguard University. It has a wonderful atmosphere where everyone is polite and welcoming, especially to freshmen like me. The cafeteria food is okay sometimes, I do wish there was more gluten free options since I am gluten free. But other than that I really enjoy this college experience so far.

I really like it here, if you are serious about getting to know God and about your education, then this is the school for you. Since I have been here I have met so many good people. Beside going to class we do a lot of off campus activities. This is a great University to attend

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Vanguard is a place where you can find community and love. The people are what make the university a safe place for learning and for socializing. I have learned so many new things from the perspective of the professors and from the students that attend there. Living on campus is convenient because everything you need is on campus. If you are looking to get away, they conveniently have Zip-Cars that you can rent so you can go to the beach, the shopping centers, or just go out to eat with friends.

I also love the community and how together we going each other to deepen our faith. I love that academics and faith are integrated and how we are all in this together.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Vanguard University is a small, private, christian university; with those characteristics being said, the atmosphere is quite different then the traditional college scenario. Although most people at the school are very friendly, the minority groups that do attend the school feel belittled and as if they do not belong. However the small class to teacher ratio has helped be focused on the topics that I am learning about. There are pros and cons for Vanguard, as any school has.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

Don't pay any attention to the boys, and read all the books you're supposed to. Don't worry about what everyone else is doing, just do what you want to do. Learn how to sleep with the lights on and learn how to make a meal out of leftovers.

What do you brag about most when you tell your friends about your school?

I'm a 10 minute walk from the beach and a 20 minute car ride from Disneyland.

Describe how your school looks to someone who's never seen it.

If I had to descibe vanguard in one sentence I would say that vanguard is tight knit community. Vanguard puts an emphisis on creating bonds and reaching to others. Thier goal is to have every student find thier place with in the school becuse they believe every student that steps foot on thier campus has a place.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

If I could go back in time and talk to myself as a high school senior I would tell myself to not be afraid to fail. The transition from high school to college comes with many different challenges. The most important part is to not be afraid to step out of your comfort zone and and accept those challenges. To fail doesnt mean that all hope is lost. It means that you did a brave which is to step out and try.

What do you consider the worst thing about your school? Why?

The worst thing about my school is the lack of privacy. Vanguard works very hard to ensure that every student feels accepted and open to the people around them. It makes for a friendly atmosphere but there is a sacrifice, which is the privacy available to the students. Everything is expected to be shared with your fellow peers. This can create strong bonds with others but can also be an invasion of your personal privacy. Someone who is an introvert will have a difficult time at this school.
