4 College Junior

Majors: Very easy to enter the major, they are extremely helpful and the school size makes getting into the major a breeze. Advisors can vary in helpfulness, but you can always change advisors.

4 College Junior

Majors: I just recently declared my major, but Environmental Science is fantastic and has boundless opportunities through the professors connections, study abroad programs, and the surrounding area and companies.

3 College Junior

Local Atmosphere: Redlands itself is pretty sleepy but you're an hour away from EVERYTHING exciting: mountains, ocean, desert, and city!

3 College Junior

Diversity: It's a pretty liberal university and by that it means white middle class to wealthy kids who think they're diverse and accepting. Many really are though, and it's a very open community.

3 College Sophomore

Majors: Since there is so much competition in the science field, the professors seem to make the subject even more challenging. There is a lot of reading and application that are done in the science field. Also, there are quite a load of prerequisite classes to take before you can take the classes for your major.

4 College Sophomore

Majors: Even though there are so many things to do to fulfill the major requirement, it is fun and challenging to step up and do well in the class. Many of the peers in one class can be seen in another class because they are pursuing a similar path like yourself. Although you are competing against them, when you study with them, it's nice to share your knowledge with theirs. I think there is a lot of friendly-rivalry at school, in which peers pursuing similar majors can benefit from each other.

3 College Sophomore

Scholarships: Since the school is very costly, unless you receive a ton of scholarships, the full cost will be not covered. The school is generous in terms of giving scholarships to students that maintain a healthy grade. However, the school does not give the benefit to the student because the school does not award more scholarships or discounts if siblings attend university as well.

3 College Sophomore

Greek Life: There are a variety of Greeks offered on campus, but they are not a huge deal to majority of the students. A lot of people do know that they throw a lot of parties and they like to seclude themselves sometimes.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: According to the individual professor and his or her teaching skills, the class is highly dependent on that. But if you take a difficult course in general, the classes can be much more difficult according to whoever you have as your professor. Also, depending on which classes you take, the size of the class can be very different. For example, my World Politics class only consisted of 12 students. However, if you take a class such as biology, you may have around 40 students per class. Lastly, I love the variety of classes offered at this school; since it is a liberal arts school, there are so many interesting classes that other schools do not offer.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: There are many job opportunities after graduating from University of Redlands. For example, our school has a connection with Target and if you pursue a degree in business, you may end up working at Target Headquarters through the connections from University of Redlands. Also, if you want to seek a job in the medical field, and Loma Linda University Hospital is not too distant from the school, you may end up working there as well.

4 College Sophomore

Facilities: There are so many green places on campus! Our school has the "look" and the buildings are that of some old and exquisite European style. It is a very aesthetic place! If the outdoors looks as such, the indoors are reconstructed with modern style technologies and is very neat. Since the aesthetics of the school is very nice, many people do photo shoots are our school.

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: There are a couple choices for the off-campus living options, but the ones that are the closest to school are even more expensive than the on-campus ones. The off-campus buildings right outside of school offers larger space and cleaning services, but I think it's a waste to pay for more money while it's off-campus. Some off-campus buildings are cheaper, but they are some what of a distance from school. So overall, it's better to stay on-campus.

4 College Sophomore

Academics: Even though University of Redlands is a small school, the school provides mostly everything of students' needs. Also, if you're into science as your major or minor, the various programs and research are to your benefit! Also, our school has a phenomenal School of Business and School of Fine Arts.

4 College Sophomore

Academics: Since University of Redlands is a private, liberal arts school, it offers a variety of programs and classes to choose from. From Gender Studies to Global Business to Biochemistry, the different departments offer a wide selection of learning styles and hands-on experiences through labs and internships and such. Especially for the science department, the varieties in professors and research provide a challenge for the students.

4 College Sophomore

Guys & Girls: Many of the students on campus are above average in terms of wealth and status. Many are good looking as well. Additionally, some are very smart as well.

3 College Sophomore

Diversity: University of Redlands is highly consisted of Caucasians. Many of the minorities are underrepresented at the school, and since I am a minority as well, I feel that my race is not as represented. I feel that many minorities do not attend this school because it is a small school, which means a lot of people do not know about this school, and that because the cost of tuition is quite costly. It happens to be that minorities are more of less-earning, in terms of income.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Strictness: The Public Safety officers are often in various places on campus. Since the school is small enough to keep an eye, different safety members are set up on campus to supervise, if anything goes wrong. Also, they are pretty friendly and approachable.

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: Although there are different ethnic cuisines served around the school, since Redlands is a small city, it doesn't have as many varieties compared to other larger cities. So if you're from a bigger city, the dining options may seem very limited. However, if you're from a place where the city size is similar, the variety may be plenty for you.

4 College Sophomore

Athletics: From a variety of varsity sports, basketball is very popular and intense. I would say that basketball is one of the most watched and enjoyed sport on campus.

4 College Senior

Nightlife: The people are almost always inviting and most parties take place off campus or at frat row.

4 College Senior

Overall Experience: I love Redlands. Even though the location is kind of in the middle of inland empire, the people and the atmosphere always keep me loving the school. The community is supportive and the professors are caring and helpful.

4 College Senior

Academics: The workload at Redlands requires alot of attention, time and patience. The professors are mostly always willing to help out and be there for their students.

3 College Senior

Diversity: The diversity on campus is okay and people are very accepting.

3 College Senior

Overall Experience: The professors are always willing to help with any problems I have. They are inspiring, motivating teachers that teach with a passion and are usually readily available to help out.

3 College Senior

Overall Experience: They're great and always help out when needed!

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.
