4 College Student

Campus Quality: Students are very nice here.

4 College Student

Administration: They are pretty strict here, but its worth it.

Transportation: The shuttles only go to three places i believe. many students have their own cars and Biola is reasonably close to things like the beach, Disneyland, and Knott's Berry Farm.

Scholarships: it is definitely a process to get financial aid but they walk you through it pretty well.

5 College Student

Drug Safety: it's Biola, there's no drugs here.

3 College Student

Campus Housing: I do not live on campus, but from what I hear, it is pretty good. It has its perks, but its not exactly a 5 star experience either.

3 College Student

Technology: The only thing that I really have to complain about is that that the wireless connection is not that great. sometimes you have full bars and other times you have one bar in the same location.

4 College Student

Party Scene: Since we are a Christian university, we are God centered so we do not partake in ungodly conduct.

4 College Student

Weather: The weather here is pretty much the same all the time.

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!
