5 College Sophomore

Scholarships: The majority of people get the financial aid that they need. Redlands is really great about making a private education affordable.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Dining: For college food, the campus dining is okay. There are plenty of vegan and vegetation meal options which is great! Also there are lots of dairy free and gluten free options as well. The food variety gets old, but it's kind of hard to avoid that when you eat the same food all year. There are late night options at the Plaza like pizza, fries, sandwhiches, cookies, etc. The Plaza is only open until midnight or so though. On weekends and holidays to the dining hours are horrible.

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: I still live in the dorms, but off-campus housing is much cheeper than dorm living. With that being said only upperclassmen can live off campus and even then they must petition to live off-campus by having a certain number of credits, GPA, and other activities. With that being said the on campus housing is nice and convenient.

4 College Sophomore

Diversity: For being a private liberal arts school in California, the diversity is pretty good. There are not many students with crazy amounts of money, and not all the students and white, upper middle class students (although many are). Redlands is very accepting of the LGBTQ community and offers support groups, clubs, and even floors of dorms dedicated to LGBTQ people.

Overall ExperienceWhat's This?

The University of Redlands is steeped in history, from the Victorian-style houses scattered throughout the town to the story of how students in 1926 saved the beloved hillside "R" from being removed by the U.S. Forest Service. Nestled 10 miles east of San Bernardino, Redlands, Calif., is surrounded by breathtaking mountains, with the Memorial Chapel acting like a beacon that draws visitors to the University. In fact, the campus is immersed in "green," with a sustainable garden that grows and sells fresh vegetables to the food management provider on campus. The Redlands community is often noted for its "big town with a small-town feel," and when it comes to University academics, this notion is also apparent, with small class sizes and an 11-to-1 student-teacher ratio. Professors definitely care about their students and see them as people instead of numbers, although some students wish they were a little more challenging with their curricula.

But sometimes being small can feel a little stifling for students. One of the University’s nicknames in regards to nightlife is "Dead-lands," as there are few nightclubs and bars in the area. Typically, the main form of nightlife on campus involves frats and sororities. Luckily, Los Angeles and San Diego are not too far away, so if it's the nightclub scene you're craving, there is sustenance. Speaking of nourishment, campus dining is rated well among students, especially with sustainable and vegetarian options; however, one thing students often vent about is how expensive campus dining can be. You have to be frugal on a week-to-week basis, which can be stressful. On most college campuses, parking is something that causes students anxiety, but at U of R, it's one of their biggest raves. Registration and permits are free, and spots are always relatively easy to find. However, in a beautiful area like Redlands, you'll probably enjoy looking for any excuse to walk.
