Weather: It's in Southern California, so the weather is always perfect

5 College Freshman

Drug Safety: There are no drugs on campus.

5 College Senior

Off-Campus Housing: Because Biola is in the middle of a residential community, there are endless amounts of houses and apartments nearby.

5 College Senior

Off-Campus Dining: There isn't much within walking distance, but there are a TON of food options in the nearby La Habra area. Biola offers its own on-campus dining. I think the food in the caf and Eagles Nest is excellent. Even if you don't like today's specialty item, unlimited pizza, salad, coffee, ice cream, and sandwiches.... how could you go wrong?!

5 College Senior

Campus Housing: Most of the buildings are renovated or in the process of being renovated. There is plenty of availability, flexibility to switch dorms after your first semester, and they are super close to class!

5 College Senior

Athletics: Intramurals are huge on campus, and get a crowd almost as much as the varsity sports. Biola has some fun rivalry games, and an excellent midnight madness.

5 College Senior

Technology: Campus is constantly updating and improving their databases and internet connection and speed. I have never had a problem connecting to wifi.

5 College Senior

Greek Life: Biola doesn't have any traditional greek life, but some of its dorms are similarly named, and each has its own culture, similar to varying houses on a row.

5 College Senior

Party Scene: Biola has its own nightlife, aside from bars. People still go to clubs to dance quite often, and local coffee shops are favored by Biolans.

5 College Senior

Academics: There are recruiters on campus all the time for my major, and many students get hired from Biola because of their commitment to integrity. You can teach the job; you can't teach morals.

5 College Senior

Academics: There is a large variety of majors, and the flexibility to adapt your learning to your career path, with the help of advisers.

5 College Senior

Campus Quality: There are countless events hosted either by the school or by the students. Tons of Biola traditions, which are all a blast.

5 College Senior

Campus Quality: They are constantly making improvements and expanding.

5 College Senior

Diversity: Biola has a ton of clubs and organizations to meet the needs of its diverse population, and is also very welcome to starting your own club on campus!

5 College Senior

Drug Safety: There is no tolerance whatsoever for drugs or alcohol on campus, yippee!

5 College Senior

Weather: Well, it's Cali. Frequent trips to the beach and Disneyland.

5 College Senior

Guys & Girls: More girls than guys at the school. The guys are attractive.

Administration: Biola fosters an excellent environment, allowing students to grow and enhance their walk with Christ.

2 College Junior

Campus Quality: Overall, the night life, activities, and athletics are bad. Library is great. Student center is great. There are little to non traditions.

4 College Junior

Campus Quality: I am a Biology major. Our school is a credible school. We have a very smart and great faculty and staff.

1 College Junior

Guys & Girls: Big prep school. For the most part everyone comes from money and the school is in Southern California. Biola University is the typical stereotype for Southern California. Blonde, skinny, wealthy white girls and boys.

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!
