Interviews & Information Sessions
Admissions is open every weekday from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. The phone number (800) OK-BIOLA will get you to the Biola hotline; ask for the Admissions department and explain that you're a prospective student. Someone will be happy to help you! Admissions counselors love to help out anyone in need and know everything there is to know about Biola.
Campus Tours
Tours can be set up through the website, but they can also be set up by calling (800) OK-BIOLA. If you call, just ask for "campus tours." If you find yourself to be in town and haven't set one up, just go to the Metzger Building and ask for a tour; tours take place every weekday, even on the weekends. You shouldn't have a problem if you randomly show up.
Overnight Visits
Students are welcome to register for overnight visits on the Biola official website. Students will spend the night with other students of the same gender and get a feel for dorm life. Biolan students get excited to have prospective students over, and are always opening up their dorms to them. "Biola Bound" is another great opportunity, which gives students four days to hang out with student ambassadors and get a real feel for Biola. More information is available on Biola's website.
