4 College Senior

Drug Safety: There isn't a drug scene at the school and if there is, it's hidden.

3 College Senior

Campus Housing: I don't live on campus.

3 College Senior

Off-Campus Dining: La Mirada is bad because it's in LA County and the sales tax is 10%. I go over to La Habra and eat.

4 College Senior

Academics: They really make you think.

Campus Quality: Most of the buildings are modern and updated.

5 College Senior

Campus Quality: There's a lot of happenings around the campus.

3 College Senior

Party Scene: I'm a commuter so I'm not there at night.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: It's a small campus, so living on campus gives you lots of neighbors.

3 College Freshman

Administration: We have "open hours" which are the 28 or so hours during which people are allowed to visit floors of the opposite gender. Other than that, things are pretty agreeable. This is kind of what I signed up for after all.

5 College Freshman

Weather: Southern California weather is really, really nice. It can get a little too hot at times, but overall there's very little to complain about.

3 College Freshman

Party Scene: We're not a party school. The biggest nighttime attraction around is either the dollar theater or a swing-dancing place. Plenty of people hang out at night on campus though. You really don't need much more than a couple floors of friendly people to have a good time.

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: I've only been to one location that offered a student discount. There are plenty of restaurants within walking distance.

Health & Safety: I have never, ever, been worried about safety at Biola. I lock my door sometimes. That's the whole of my security measures.

Technology: There are plenty of computers available. The wi-fi is not incredible though. Pretty reliable, but very slow.

2 College Freshman

Athletics: Not a great school for athletics. Facilities are decent, but not incredible. Very comparable to my high school. Interest in athletics was probably higher in high school.

5 College Freshman

Majors: Very easy to get into my major (philosophy). I painlessly declared philosophy last semester and seamlessly transitioned into the major. I'm thinking of adding English as a second major and can pursue that whenever I want to.

5 College Freshman

Majors: I'm in the honors program at my school. It's a great books program that I'll get to engage in with the same 14 people for 4 years, assuming all goes well.

5 College Senior

Majors: I love the program I am in. The teachers are caring and committed.

3 College Senior

Diversity: While there is evident diversity, it is not completely representative equally of all cultures in the area. There is a large Korean student population.

Greek Life: I honestly have no knowledge of this aspect of the school.

4 College Senior

Local Area: It is in a nice area with closeby shopping and dining. There is a good vibe towards the students of Biola.

3 College Senior

Transportation: I know there are buses in the area, but I drive and don't have firsthand experience with the local transportation.

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!
