5 College Freshman

Campus Housing: I love the campus environment, the campus is busy during the school days and quite on the weekends so you can get your work done. I just wish there was more to do on the weekends for the none local students.

4 College Freshman

Technology: The tech team is very helpful with fixing computers and the printing in the library is excellent.

3 College Freshman

Transportation: The shuttle drivers are great, the only difficulty is the schedule, it you want to eat dinner in Brea you have to leave around 3 making it almost a half day event, just for dinner.

3 College Freshman

Diversity: Since the campus is dominantly white, I can see it's hard for minority students to feel accepted. I truly believe if the tuition was lowered that there would be more diversity on campus.

Academics: I love the integration of faith and learning only offered at Biola. The only recommendation would also have the Bible classes be as small as my specific major classes.

3 College Freshman

Academics: As a Sophomore Pre Nursing student, its hard knowing that there are only 40 spots available, I would much rather have the application in the program from the very beginning rather then mid sophomore year, it feels displaced.

3 College Senior

Diversity: It's a conservative Christian school... so, mostly conservative Christian students. You'll find a few liberals and a few non-Christians, and everyone is pretty welcoming of differing political views. There is a decent amount of ethnic diversity on campus.

4 College Senior

Campus Quality: Weekends can get pretty dead around Biola. Weekdays are very lively; people play intramurals and hang out all over campus. There is not much to do immediately off campus, but the beach, LA, and Irvine are all 30 min away.

5 College Senior

Campus Quality: The Bible classes and professors at Biola really set Biola apart from other schools. Additionally, most classes will integrate the Bible into whatever subject you are learning. It's really amazing to be able to walk around campus and see people praying. Additionally, there are conferences each semester where speakers come from all over the world.

3 College Senior

Transportation: The Biola shuttle was recently implemented and runs from campus to the grocery store and movie theater and back, which adds to the off campus life. Other than that, you don't need transportation once on campus because campus is pretty small.

4 College Senior

Athletics: Basketball, Volleyball, Track and Soccer are big at Biola. There is no football team. Intramurals are huge at Biola, and a great thing to get involved in!

3 College Senior

Off-Campus Housing: Depends on your landlord. There is a company that leases houses to students, and this company rips students off. However, renting directly from a landlord has been a much better experience, and my house is a 5 min drive from campus.

5 College Senior

Overall Experience: Biola is such an amazing experience if you are looking for a Christian college. You can walk around campus at almost any point in the day and see people praying or worshipping together. I have learned so much from the Bible classes, and love the fact that all of my classes integrate the subject with the Bible. Not much to do immediately around campus, but LA, Irivne, and the beach are each about 30 minutes away!

5 College Senior

Academics: I love the Science department at my school. It's very small and we really get to know everyone, including the professors. The profs are more than willing to help with any questions you have.

4 College Senior

Academics: Professors are very interested in students' learning and are usually more than willing to help. Classes are small.

1 College Senior

Greek Life: There is no greek life available at Biola.

5 College Senior

Health & Safety: Campus security is very good, all over campus. I always feel very safe, even walking late at night.

3 College Senior

Campus Food: Biola has a good rating for cafeteria food. The food is pretty good, but is very expensive. Coffee shop has weird hours.

4 College Senior

Campus Housing: Some of the dorms are very new and very nice. Bathrooms are cleaned multiple times a week. Very near to classes (<15 minutes to other side of campus)

4 College Senior

Technology: Plenty of computers available in the library; printers are average cost. Internet is always available and is usually pretty fast.

3 College Sophomore

Administration: It is a Christian University after all

3 College Sophomore

Local Area: Again there is a good amount of things to do

3 College Sophomore

Weather: When it rains, it is not fun

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: It has a lot of things around but it gets repetitive

3 College Sophomore

Technology: I commute so I don't deal with issues to much

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!
