Athletics: I am on the women's tennis team at Biola University. What I have seen so far has been a very positive experience. Almost every one of my friends are involved in either a team or an intramural team on campus. Athletics of all kinds are very important to this University and very well supported by the faculty yet we as athletes are not given an easier time simply because of that fact that we are athletes. I believe this is good because we have to work just as hard as other students involved in other programs. There is no special treatment and I am thankful for this.

Overall Experience: One of my favorite parts of Biola University is the Torrey Honor Institute. In this program I feel I am given the highest level of professors to teach and build both my academic and my spiritual life. I have one mentor who I will have for all four years of this program who works with me on my own level and gives me criticism in the ways that I can improve while still recognizing my strengths. I have been completely satisfied with every part of Biola, however Torrey Honors Institute is absolutely my favorite part.

Campus Housing: The dorm life at Biola is differently a healthy one for me. The relationships that I have built while living at Biola are some of the best that I have ever established. The community is welcoming and accepting.

4 College Junior

Athletics: The school spirit at Biola is strong and full of unity.

4 College Senior

Academics: Registration can either be easy or a nightmare. The professors and the classes they teach are generally great!

4 College Senior

Health & Safety: I feel very safe on campus, even when walking around late at night.

4 College Senior

Overall Experience: The courses and professors are tough but good and you learn a lot.

4 College Senior

Overall Experience: I think that it is good, but it could be better. People like Biola grads because they know they are hard workers and stand for something.

4 College Senior

Athletics: There should be more emphasis put on going to sporting events. It is fun when people go and we are actually pretty good but people just don't know when things are happening.

4 College Senior

Overall Experience: It has been a wonderful experience!

Campus Housing: I live off campus but all my friends say that it is very safe and convenient.

4 College Freshman

Athletics: I do not know much about sports and teams in my school but when there is a game, almost everyone talks about it.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: The community at my school is absolutely lovely but the work load is a bit tough to handle.

5 College Freshman

Academics: The academics here are great! The professors really care about you and your well being probably the best part of Biola. The professors will push you to be the best possible student you can be, not something that you can get at a lot of other schools.

Health & Safety: Campus safety plays a huge roll on our campus. They are always walking around, making sure everything is intact and making sure everyone is safe. When it is late at night they will always offer you a ride back to your dorm, which is nice.

3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: My over all experience has been nothing more than okay. This is more of a commuters school. If you are strictly just here for school then by all means attend Biola University, but if you are looking for that strong real college experience, such as football games and late night runs attend another school because this is not the school for you. Do not get me wrong I have made some friendships here, but just in one semester all that changed because they felt like they could no longer attend Biola due to lack of their liking.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: The career center here has been great. They really care about you and will do everything in their power to set you up where you need to be in your career.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: The housing over all is great! Actually, it is one of the best qualities on campus. The new dorm is where I live and i love it even though it is not spacious. One of the very few things I really enjoy at Biola.

Greek Life: We do not have one.

3 College Freshman

Athletics: This is an event that you look to attend, when there is nothing to do. It is not something to look forward to, mostly because of the lack of school spirit.

3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: If i could rewind back in time, and take me back to May 1st... my school colors would have been green and yellow to be an Oregon Duck. Biola University was never my first choice but do to the fact of financial issues and family problems I was not able to attend Orgeon University. Not to say that Biola is not a great school just not exactly what i was expecting for my college experience. The rules are to strict I am in college not in middle school, I feel once Biola realizes this they will be more successful in attracting more prospective students. They have a well put together community during school hours, but once the weekend comes it seems like all of this crumbles. This is why I am applying for scholarships and trying to fulfill my dream of becoming a Duck!

5 College Freshman

Health & Safety: Biola is a very secure place.

Overall ExperienceWhat's this?

View student contributors

Biola boasts an amazing Christian fellowship that's focused on delivering the Gospel, not only to its students, but to the world surrounding it. In taking classes and attending lectures, students feel much more apt to take on the world, not only with renewed and strengthened faith, but also with a professional education.

Biola can be an adjustment. But once you get involved with on-campus jobs and school events, it becomes much easier. After spending time with the students and faculty, you'll come to realize that you'll never find a school quite like this. But it takes a little bit of work at first. Biola's teaching is amazing, and the community is unparalleled. Nowhere else on Earth can students strike up random conversations with anyone and be able to "Facebook-friend" them and ask them to coffee the very next day. If you value your education and want to surround yourself with God-fearing students serving each other and the Lord, then Biola is the place for you!
