Biola University is widely known for its integration of the Christian faith with a collegiate curriculum. Not only will students be learning one of 37 diverse majors that will prepare them for the workforce, but they'll also be taking Bible courses and have a strong emphasis on Christ in the classroom. As such, most, if not all, of the professors desire to help students grow in both knowledge and faith. Most professors live right next to Biola in the surrounding suburban area and thus are constantly opening up their homes to students for study groups, Bible studies, or even just for casual coffee and discourse. And, in most cases, they are professionals in their fields. For example, most of the business professors in the business department are actual businessmen, running their own businesses in addition to teaching.
As most students will find, the classes are indeed difficult, but with resources surrounding them in the forms of books, computers, and professors, it would take going out of one's way to find yourself in a rut. Depending on the major, students could end up having to heft a large course load class-wise (mostly science majors), but professors are ready to help, offering comprehensive study groups and office hours at all times. Students can add or drop classes on the personal Biola website that they are given access to at the beginning of their college career, and they can meet with their personal student advisers at any time to sit down and discuss their schedules and what would be best—or even just chat about the weather.
