4 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: I have never been worried or scared about walking on campus late at night. It is a small close knit school that is protected by wonderful campus safety officers. Just don't get caught making out in your car.

2 College Sophomore

Party Scene: There is very little night life that falls into Biola's code of conduct and risking getting caught isn't worth the parties.

4 College Freshman

Drug Safety: Biola's covenant restricts undergraduate students from using either recreational drugs or smoking/drinking for that matter. Since all students enter the university with this knowledge in mind, it greatly limits the use of such paraphernalia.

3 College Freshman

Athletics: The facilities are nice enough for athletes to improve their game and compete at a competitive level. However, the school does not seem to exhibit a great deal of school spirit when it comes to sports. Perhaps it is because we lack a football team. Overall, I would say if you are an athlete and just looking to compete with other players that are above par in their skill, Biola is a good fit.

4 College Senior

Majors: I enjoy Kinesiology. most of the lectures and teaching material is hands on.

Majors: I definitely look forward to interning within y major and skill capabilities. I do not have many concerns. I have faith inGod that He will open up opportunities and let His will be done. I just pray and hope for the internship to be as directly related to my major and concentration.

Academics: Studying Kinesiology at Biola university is great. I receive a biblically centered education. In doing so I am integrating the Word of God and Kinesiology and learning a way in which I can impact the World through Gods eyes and with the career that I am pursuing. I not only learn the technical aspect of Kinesiology, but Biola also teaches its students to have integrity and and be diligent in our words and deeds.

5 College Senior

Campus Quality: The faculty all have a warm personality. They have a welcoming spirt to greet you during every visit to the campus. They are very supportive and making your Biola experience satisfying.

5 College Senior

Campus Quality: The faculty at Biola University are extremely happy to accompany you while being on campus. They are very supportive in making sure my questions are answered. They regularly call to make sure I am updated.

3 College Senior

Academics: Biola University is a very well rounded campus. Everyone is helpful in making the campus like home. The library is a peaceful environment to study. There are many helpful resources that can be available.

4 College Junior

Off-Campus Housing: There are a lot of apartments and houses near Biola. I will be a junior at Biola this fall and most of my friends did not have an issue finding an apartment. Prices in the area are reasonable. There are a lot of homes that are walking distance from school so you don't have to worry if you don't have a car. There are a lot of houses near Biola and many landlords trust Biola students.

Health & Safety: I've never felt unsafe on Biola University's campus. Biola University is located in La Mirada and this is a very quiet and safe city. Campus safety can be easily spotted when needed and they are very friendly so it is not intimidating to ask them for help.

Off-Campus Dining: The off-campus dining at Biola University is very convenient. There is a Stator Bros that is walking distance from the University Drive. There are a lot of restaurants and eateries in the area as well. With Biola's free student shuttle service, it provides easier and convenient access to transportation outside of the campus.

4 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: No problems. They do a great job keeping everyone safe and healthy.

2 College Sophomore

Local Area: La Mirada has a few nice spots and places to visit. It's not exactly a fascinating city, though being in Southern California means there is access to all that is great (or not great) about life in L.A. Public transportation is terrible and so a car is a must. There is sometimes too much to do in the wider Los Angeles area.

Academics: It's great! Professors are very helpful. Coursework is challenging but engaging.

4 College Junior

Scholarships: I have received a pretty good amount of Financial Aid and the school has been very good about communicating with me regarding everything I need in order to attend. The only problem I have is just not having enough money period for tuition.

4 College Freshman

Academics: I came to Biola to study apologetics the first time around. The program was so amazing that I decided to do another graduate degree at the institution. The professors are passionate about what they teach, knowledgeable in their field, and willing to meet with students outside of class. They truly nurture knowledge in the students and a love for learning, and do so with the humility and inquisitiveness necessary for honest education to take place.

4 College Senior

Campus Food: Biola is know to have one of the best cafeterias in the state. Along with that, there are three additional cafes, a coffee cart, and a food truck to choose from for meals between classes or late at night. I would suggest purchasing the the 175 block meal plan with flex, because you can eat at anytime as opposed to the weekly meal plan.

3 College Senior

Off-Campus Housing: Biola offers several off-campus apartment options which are all monitored by campus safety. Unfortunately, it can be difficult to get into these apartments due to the school's lottery selection system. Many students also rent nearby houses in the surrounding neighborhoods.

4 College Senior

Local Area: La Mirada is a fairly cozy little town with ample coffee shops and places to eat for a college community. It is also in a good location as it is 40 minutes from the beach, 30 minutes from LA and Hollywood, and 15 minutes from Disneyland.

3 College Student

Parking: There is parking on the street off campus, but sometimes it is full. There is a parking structure in the back but its not so close to class and the parking lot is great!!

3 College Junior

Technology: The computer areas are always nice and tidy. There's enough room to spread your stuff out and be somewhat comfortable.

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!
