Health & Safety: It's pretty good with it's job, sometimes I may think them to be lazy and others extremely too tough on students.

Health & Safety: The campus safety is incredible. They send out school-wide emails if their is a safety concern on campus. Always see campus safety driving around during the day and at night. I have never worried about my safety here on campus.

Perhaps one of the safest areas in La Mirada, Biola University rarely has any issues or causes for concern among students in terms of safety. With a Campus Safety officer always on patrol, if anything were to go wrong, it would be quite difficult. That being said, there is no place on campus that is any safer than the next. There is virtually no crime on campus; therefore, students should feel safe to wander around campus. The only time that it would be sketchy to walk about campus would be at 2 a.m. when it's pitch-black outside, but even at that hour, Campus Safety is patrolling the campus. The campus police also check parking lots for unregistered cars and just keep an eye out for the students in general. With the decorated police group that Biola has on campus, it's very hard to feel insecure. If something ever were to come up, measures have been taken to inform students of possible threats or recent events that have transpired through emergency texts (to those who are registered for them) and emails through their Biola account.

The Health Center is also easily accessible, being in the center of campus with plenty of workers to help you around the clock. From the common cold to more serious illnesses, the health office is prepared to provide care for any and all students. If anything were to happen and they were not able to help you, the Campus Security team would escort you to the nearest hospital. Biola's health and safety departments are both more than adequate to care and protect the students on campus.
