Off-Campus Dining: I'm assuming it is great, from the places I have visitied

5 College Student

Administration: Very strict, because of our mission statement. However, a majority of the students at Biola will respect the strictness because it's what shapes us into who we are

3 College Student

Scholarships: I believe that my school is helping me receive as much financial aid as I can, although the process can be overwhelming at times.

Party Scene: Biola University is not a party school. We find better ways to have fun other than the typical drinking and hooking up parties. The fun that we have brings us together as a community rather than risking our lives to drugs and alcohol

5 College Freshman

Campus Housing: My two roommates have made living at Biola the best

Off-Campus Housing: Living off campus is definitely cheaper than living on campus. Parking is a pain in the neighborhoods right by campus because they are permit only, so that can get tricky depending on how many of your housemates have cars or when friends come over. But overall, off campus housing is great.

4 College Senior

Off-Campus Dining: Just about anything you want can probably be found within a 30 minute commute. La Mirada is very close to multiple cities that have a lot to offer food wise.

Campus Food: Flex dollars are awesome and probably my favorite part of the meal plan. You can use them for the coffee shops, the food truck, or the Talon. It's basically a Starbucks card that is included in the price of your meal plan. The caf, although it gets boring sometimes, is still great quality food. Especially compared to other college cafeterias, Biola's is great.

Campus Housing: Living in the dorms is great. There are several options, and each dorm comes with its differences. Biola's dorms tend to have personalities. By that I mean that similar types of people tend to congregate in specific buildings, making for great and unique communities in each. Some are more outgoing and some are more artsy, but whatever your personality type, there is probably a whole dorm of people who you will mesh well with.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: since I do not live off-campus housing, I do not know much about it.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: I do not usually go off-campus for dining because there are many fast foods and it is not cheap.

4 College Freshman

Administration: since our school is a christian school, many faculties and students are very nice and helpful. Most students know what to do and what to not do and the rules do not matter much.

3 College Freshman

Scholarships: since Biola University is a private college, tuition was a big issue for my family. I applied for financial aid and got one scholarship in school. However, my parents get loan and it is not easy for them to pay off the tuition every semester.

5 College Freshman

Campus Food: since it is all you can eat, I could have anything in a lot of time. also, there are a lot of different food such as American, Asian, Mexican food. there are a lot of desserts and salads that are sides.

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!
