4 College Freshman

Local Area: Biola is located near LA and Orange County so there is so many fun attractions to go to like Disney, the beaches, Hollywood, etc.

1 College Freshman

Greek Life: We do not have any Greek like at Biola University.

3 College Freshman

Party Scene: Nightlife at our school is not full of parties or the bar scene. People are always hanging out in the dorms and there is always plenty of fun things to do.

5 College Freshman

Academics: Workload is always manageable and fair. Professors truly care and help you find jobs and internships. The business program and professors are the best.

5 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Living on campus is so fun. Ive meet my best friends on my floor and in my dorm. Housing process can be stressful to get into the more popular dorms, but if you flexible and stay with your friends you will be fine.

3 College Freshman

Transportation: Many students have cars so it is usually easy to find a ride anywhere you need to go from friends. Public transportations is hard to find and will not be cheap.

5 College Freshman

Administration: Biola's community standard are set to protect students and help foster an amiable Christian community. The contract we sign is not that hard to follow. Although some people may complain about chapel requirements and open hours they are meant to help grow students.

3 College Sophomore

Athletics: i have participated in intramurals at several schools and biola is well organized, but not overly competitive and fun.

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: The choices around the school are limited. I feel you have to go a city or two over to find better places

5 College Sophomore

Weather: rarely rains. it's always warm. very little to no humidity. it's great

4 College Sophomore

Diversity: there are a lot of students from different ethnic backgrounds on campus

Campus Housing: I do not know much about it as i do not live on campus, but the dorms and locations of them seem convenient enough

4 College Sophomore

Drug Safety: Again, as it is a christian college i am unaware of substance abuse that may occur near campus.

3 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: There does not appear to be too much security on campus, but because it is a Christian college there does not need to be much.

3 College Sophomore

Technology: The computer labs are conveniently located in the library and there are many to go around.

4 College Junior

Off-Campus Dining: Great food options. Wish there were more healthy alternatives though.

4 College Junior

Health & Safety: I feel very safe on campus. I haven't been too concerned.

3 College Junior

Local Area: Not the best area. It's got some good parks, lots of good food places, a fun dollar theatre, normal movie theatres, close to LA, the beach, etc.

3 College Junior

Party Scene: There isn't a huge party scene at Biola athough I'm sure there is some kind.

Greek Life: We have no greek life.

4 College Junior

Diversity: I think Biola has a great a great diverse culture but there are some grey areas that cause a little bit of tension.

4 College Junior

Athletics: As an athlete I love it here but I do wish we were supported more by our student body and even administration. We work hard for God's glory and wish that people would support us as fellow brother and sisters in Christ.

3 College Junior

Drug Safety: I don't know much about it, I'm sure some people part-take in it...but I don't know of anyone

3 College Junior

Administration: I think it is for the best interest of the students. It is hard with the pressure for drinking when people are of age when you are home for spring break or on your birthday.

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!
