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.

4 College Sophomore

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

College Junior

Campus Quality: No idea yet. Hope they are great. Have heard great things.

College Junior

Guys & Girls: So far no interactions with students at the school but have had a lot of friends who have attended Biola and they are all really great people!

College Junior

Off-Campus Dining: I have no idea as I am not down there yet but I am sure the options are great being in the location it is.

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.

College Junior

Majors: I dont plan on having an internship because the Nursing program does not offer internships. However next school year, I will be doing a following another nurse and shadowing her before receiving my degree.

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.

4 College Junior

Guys & Girls: Aside from the athletic wear that you see all the athletes in, typically it is relaxed and boho style clothes. It's easy to make friends here.

4 College Junior

Party Scene: There's a small place to go to have a good time dancing. When I mean dancing, I mean square dancing! Listening to country music and enjoying peoples' good company.

4 College Junior

Campus Food: The food on campus is delicious. It's a great place to go especially because it's all you can eat!

3 College Sophomore

Diversity: While on campus i have seen a pretty good diversity. There are mostly Caucasian and Asian students on campus but there are also many other ethnicity's on campus.

4 College Sophomore

Technology: BIOLA has many computers available, wireless around campus and a print shop. There really isn't any crowding.

5 College Sophomore

Administration: There are policies put in place to keep BIOLA a safe, and modest learning environment. There are dress codes, codes of conduct, a policy against any drinking smoking or drug use one campus. I feel safe while on campus.

3 Recent Alumnus

Majors: My goal was to get a degree and I accomplished that. I probably would have chosen a different school or different major if I had to do it all over again. I loved Biola, but I think people don't respect it as much as say UCLA or UCSD.

2 Recent Alumnus

Majors: I worked full time and attended school part time. Most of the opportunities are in the LA/OC region so don't think you're going to be getting great connections at an exotic place.

Recent Alumnus

Scholarships: My friend received a scholarship for half of her tuition. I received some federal grants and federal stafford loans so I cannot comment on scholarships. As an alumnus, I know they have raised a significant amount of money in recent years compare to when I attended so you have a much better shot at getting aid.

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!
