Campus Quality: Campus is beautiful. There are so many spots to explore and life is never boring. Tons of events happen every week there's no possible way to attend all of them.

5 College Freshman

Campus Quality: Biola has so many opportunities to become involved in on campus. Community projects, study abroad programs, internship opportunities, talent shows, etc... There is so much to grow and shape a person here.

4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: The security team on campus is pretty fantastic. They're almost everywhere on campus at all hours of the day. My highest concern is only non-students from surrounding areas walking onto campus unnoticed and causing trouble.

3 College Freshman

Parking: Parking situations are pretty good. There are normally plenty of spots for everyone at their dorms. The cost of a permit is pretty high though.

4 College Freshman

Majors: You have to apply to get into the school of psychology, but it's not hard to get accepted.

College Freshman

Greek Life: There is no Greek life at Biola University and probably never will be.

2 College Freshman

Transportation: The bus system is really confusing and inconvenient. If you don't have a car life is rough.

3 College Freshman

Party Scene: Biola is a Christian school so the nightlife consists of dance parties and poetry readings.

4 College Freshman

Local Area: It's 20 minutes from the center of Los Angeles, so there's pretty much hundreds of things to do. Life here is never boring.

4 College Freshman

Scholarships: I was able to receive financial aid very easily. The process was smooth. Biola is expensive and the people there desire to help students as much as they can to be able to attend.

5 College Freshman

Weather: It's South California! The weather is incredible pretty much every single day. Sunny with pleasant temperatures.

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!
