After Biola University

I love the people, dorm life and professors here! So far, I have taken Bible courses such as Theology, New testament and Spiritual Formation, where I've had the unique opportunity to integrate my faith with my academic learning. Also my favorite part of the year is Missions Conference, where thousands of people come to Biola's campus to learn about missions, different cultures and to meet missionaries from every end of the Earth. Biola has provided me with a college experience that has nurtured and cultivated me as a person - something that I value much more than partying every weekend, like other universities promote.

Biola University is a really great place to be! The campus, in my opinion, is the perfect size as the longest distance you'll ever have to walk to your classes is maybe fifteen minutes. The people here are all so nice and welcoming! You really feel like the community at Biola is thriving. It's a very strongly Christian campus, which it should be because it is a Christian university. The only downside to coming to Biola (if you could consider it a downside) is that there are a lot of rules you ned to follow. Theres required chapels, you're on a contract that restricts you from doing things like drinking or clubbing, and dorm rules are very strict with gender segregation. Other than that, I think Biola is great!

If i could rewind back in time, and take me back to May 1st... my school colors would have been green and yellow to be an Oregon Duck. Biola University was never my first choice but do to the fact of financial issues and family problems I was not able to attend Orgeon University. Not to say that Biola is not a great school just not exactly what i was expecting for my college experience. The rules are to strict I am in college not in middle school, I feel once Biola realizes this they will be more successful in attracting more prospective students. They have a well put together community during school hours, but once the weekend comes it seems like all of this crumbles. This is why I am applying for scholarships and trying to fulfill my dream of becoming a Duck!
