4 College Senior

Off-Campus Dining: There are three places which are favorites around Corban University: La Perla, Love Love Teriyaki, and French Press. This list applies to cost from low to high as well. All three are affordable to students and the food is handmade and delicious.

4 College Senior

Overall Experience: The people and history classes have been the best part of my experience at Corban University. The only reason I would not chose to attend Corban University again is because of the price.

3 College Senior

Majors: My recommendation would be to participate in the early, free admission process. You save a few dollars and the students don't have to write as much for the application. An important aspect of Corban University is their statement of faith requirement; any student who applies should be prepared to talk with an admissions counselor about their religious beliefs.

4 College Senior

Majors: Each major at Corban University works hard, but in different ways. Within the education department, the students are strung between university and TSPC requirements. The classes can be repetitive, but the classes are valuable. The best part if the program is the intention and effort to have students be in the classroom all four years. At first, the students observe, take notes, and act as teacher's aides. As the student grows in classroom ability and experience, their responsibilities grow. What every freshman should know about Corban University's Education department is that students will be teaching and going to school at the same time. You will be taking higher level classes and be required in local classrooms both in teaching and observation roles.

Campus Housing: There is a reason why most students move off campus after the required first year on campus. Corban University is very expensive. Dining and food costs can be the reason why students are unable to attend. However, many of the dorm rooms are basic and purposeful. The atmosphere within the dorms is one of strong community. The student leaders care for the students in their charge and spend most of their days with the students.

3 College Senior

Diversity: The diversity of Corban University is limited ethnically to a few African-Americans, Pacific Islanders, and international students from Great Britain, Australia, Jamaica, and Indonesia. As a conservative Christian university, the students who choose to attend know that the school stands behind the Biblical marriage model of "one man, one woman." The students are required to write a statement of faith which adheres to the basic tenants of Christianity. Economically, the student body consists of many students who are deeply in debt through loans, parents are paying for all four years, children of professors, or students attending only because of many generous scholarships.

Guys & Girls: For the most part, the students are genuinely friendly, helpful, and caring towards others. Even towards strangers, students will most likely give time out of their day to help with a problem or answer a question. They are generally respectful of property and staff on campus.

3 College Senior

Local Atmosphere: Salem, Oregon is a conglomeration of cultures, ages, and career paths. Being the state's capitol, the local parks, downtown, and state legislature buildings are open for tours and contain a lot of information of the city's past and current significance. It is a city which has the charm of downtown shopping and parks while not being too far from hiking and the beach.

3 College Junior

Transportation: The nearest bus stop is about a mile away, and most places that you would want to go to are much farther. If you don't have a car it is actually not too bad because most of the time if you need to go somewhere all you need to do is ask around for a ride and you will usually find one on the first or second try.

Academics: Corbin has a lot of options for majors, and they recently added a Political Science degree. Because it is a small private university the option are a lot more limited, but the Education and Religious studies programs are very good here.

3 College Junior

Diversity: Corban is populated by a lot of white people, however they are currently trying to find ways to get more minority students to want to come here. There are minority students that do attend Corban, and they are treated like they should be, fellow people created in Gods image.

Campus Strictness: Corban is a Christian University, meaning there are a lot of rules. Compared to a lot of other Christian universities that I have heard of though, Corab is actually pretty lenient, but compared to public universities the rules would seem pretty strict.

Off-Campus Dining: I have yet to go to all of the possible restaurants in Salem and the nearby areas, but there are a lot of pretty good options. The nearest places to eat are fast food chains, so those late night Taco Bell runs are really simple. There is a lot of food in and near the Lancaster Mall, which is like 15 minutes away, and if you go downtown there are a lot of options.

3 College Junior

Athletics: Some of the sports teams are good, while others need some work. It is still fun to go watch them though. The Gym is pretty nice, the size of this school means there are not a couple of gyms, but the one that we have is pretty nice

4 College Junior

Scholarships: Corbin is expensive, but they offer a lot of scholarships, they try to find you grants, and getting on a payment plan is very simple

4 College Freshman

Diversity: As a private university, there are not as much diversity as one probably sees at other schools. However, there are a handful of international students that are thriving and loving Corban. I have many friends that have different beliefs, political views, and economic backgrounds than I do. They are no less accepted than I am, and visa versa.

Off-Campus Housing: I have many friends that live off campus, and are able to save money while still being very involved with the Corban community.

4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: I feel very safe on campus. I am able to leave my laptop sitting out in a study room, grab coffee/food/go to the bathroom, and it will still be there. I never lock my dorm room. Campus safety is also present and there to help with anything. Although Corban is near a prison, it has never created a problem or made me feel unsafe.

Drug Safety: Athletes experience the most pressure. I know people that drink, but I do not know of people doing drugs on campus. Because of the tight-knit community, I think it would be very difficult to get away with.

Off-Campus Dining: It is average. Nothing special about it.

College Freshman

Nightlife: I personally have not experienced the "nightlife", so I am unable to answer.

5 College Freshman

Scholarships: The school genuinely cares for its students and works hard to give as much aid as they can.

Local Atmosphere: Salem as a city lacks its own character or identity, but there are plenty of programs, shopping and recreation to keep students busy.

4 College Freshman

Academics: As a Health Science major, I have one of the harder workloads compared to students in other majors. It is a young program, so facilities are not the best. However, the science department is working to change that. The unique aspect of the department i am in is the care that the professors have for the students. Every professor is willing to answer questions, and help make us successful when applying to graduate programs.
