Biola is a Biblically sound, private Christian University. The people are extremely friendly and are usually God- fearing. Pretty much every professor is conservative and wants to get to know you on a personal level outside of the classroom. The campus environment is warm and welcoming, and it is very easy to make friends. Located in Southern California, Biola is close to many famous destinations like the beach, LA, and Disneyland! Dorm life is a major part of the campus community, but I am sure commuters are just as satisfied. I love Biola. The professors have taught me a lot about thinking Biblically about everything, the people are beautiful, the weather is great, and my friends are incredible. You should definitely check it out!

I love the people, dorm life and professors here! So far, I have taken Bible courses such as Theology, New testament and Spiritual Formation, where I've had the unique opportunity to integrate my faith with my academic learning. Also my favorite part of the year is Missions Conference, where thousands of people come to Biola's campus to learn about missions, different cultures and to meet missionaries from every end of the Earth. Biola has provided me with a college experience that has nurtured and cultivated me as a person - something that I value much more than partying every weekend, like other universities promote.

There are many things that I love about Biola University. It has been my first year at this university. For instance, the professors are wonderful. They expect a lot of effort from students, but they teach in an entertaining way which motivates students to do their best. Each of my colleagues are stressed from all the work given to them, but are motivated because each professor kindly answers questions during class sessions. Also, the campus at Biola University is beautiful. The campus is filled with fountains running water and the there are are many religious monuments. There is one thing that I think should be improved. The campus is peaceful during sunny days, but it is ugly during raining seasons. Since the campus is wide-open, it is impossible to stay dry. Although it is hard to cover the entire area, I think that some partitions should be put up in specific areas so students could relax and not worry about getting wet.
