5 College Freshman

Campus Quality: Campus Life – You can easily tell the way people live their life on this campus is unlike any other school, unlike any other christian school I've ever known of. I can't explain how friendly and loving everyone is.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Spiritually Grounded & Uplifting – The entire campus is palpable with love for God. Everyone is there for a specific reason and they focus on their spiritual walk and their education. Everything about this campus is amazing. I couldn't ask for a better school. The food is always good, healthy choices, great study spot and library, teachers truly care about you and your life and classes are always good, dorm life is awesome and the people are amazing!

Party Scene: Never Crazy, Always Fun. Because we are a christian school and we all are focused on our christian walk(for a good 95% of us) there aren't a lot of crazy parties and whatnot but we do have a lot of good clean fun.

Campus Food: Cafe Biola has to be one of the best dining halls that I have been to on a college campus. Everyone who comes to visit the campus absolutely loves the food and service. Unfortunately, we tend to get sick of the Caf food and miss home cooking. Biola treats us very well when it comes to the food, but the coffee has to be the worst part of the Caf.

Campus Food: Biola is a smaller university, so there are only three dining locations on campus to choose from. There is a large main dining hall where students can use their meal plans for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. The meals vary from day to day, but the staff does a great job preparing food that is both healthy and appealing to college students. I would definitely say that we get the most out of our money. The other two dining locations on campus include "The Talon"- a coffe shop/cafe where you can grab a drink or snack between classes, and "The Eagle's Nest" where you can order anything from burritos, to sandwiches, to pasta. At both of these locations students can pay using their flex dollars. Overall Biola has great dining selections and food choices on campus.

Scholarships: If you want to seek finaid you have to seek them. They dont really come find you unless you come to them

Campus Housing: Dorm Lifee – Hope is the best dorm on campus and also the newest one. If you are a guy I Dont recomend Emerson as it has no heating or air condition

5 College Junior

Health & Safety: Campus Safety – Campus Saftey is legit. Seriously, It is so hard to get anything past them. They take their Job very seriously.

5 College Junior

Majors: Online TESOL Program – I have been very happy with the excellent tools I have acquired through this program. As an older student, with Skype and other online options I have been able to stay connected with not just the professors, but other students. The networking possibilities for future employment is especially helpful.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Biola University is an amazing place where you can grow both spiritually and intellectually. The professors (especially Bible profs)are amazing. If you are looking for a great Christian school, Biola is the place to be.

5 College Freshman

Campus Quality: Our library is awesome. If what you want is not in the library, the library staff will find it and borrow it from another library. We have a fitness center and weight room which is free to all students and alumni. Overall, Biola has an awesome campus.

5 College Freshman

Health & Safety: Campus Safety – Biola has an excellent campus safety program. If you are ever in need of assistance, you can call campus safety and they will be there with in minutes. Biola feels like a very safe campus because of them.

4 College Freshman

Technology: Our school was originally a mac test lab so it has some of the better state of the art macs, you need to be a film major to get into the best mac computers, but there are always plenty of open computers in the labs, wireless can be not so reliable in some places on campus but most the time its pretty good

4 College Sophomore

Transportation: Carpool Is the Way to Go – I have my own car, which is very convenient for me to have. We find ways to save money by carpooling, and each of us (unless you're the driver) will pay the driver to help them with gas. But if you don't have a car, or know of anyone who does, Biola provides a shuttle people could use to go to church or to the airport if needed, they just have to pay a same fee. If people don't prefer either of these options, they could simply take the bus.

4 College Sophomore

Party Scene: No Partying Found Here – Biola has many events going on around campus for the students to get involved. Some of which take place at night. But mainly, a lot of us hang at the coffee shops or the student building. They recently built a fire pavilion so that we could warm up during the night too. Hanging out in our friend's rooms to watch movies is a typical thing to do as well. You won't find any typical college partying taking place, out of the respect for the community on and off campus. In addition, the school does not want to condone the use of alcohol or anything related to the "party" scene, which I am absolutely fine with! It provides a better atmosphere for the students and keeps them out of trouble.

4 College Sophomore

Technology: Library Provides Excellent Software to Students to Use – Biola University certainly favors Apple software. They even have their own Apple store! So, it does have excellent quality computers available for us to use. In the library, many of the computers are free to use because most students have their own Mac Book to work on. But for those with laptops, it is sometimes hard to find an available outlet to put your charger into.

3 College Freshman

Party Scene: There Is Not a Lot to Do – There are only parties if you are on the baseball team or a girl, because the rest of us don't want to break contract or deny Jesus in that manner. There are some jazz coffee shops around that are really amazing though and there are lots of concerts.

3 College Freshman

Athletics: No Football – We don't have a football team, so many people are disinterested in the school sports. Our most popular sport is basketball and our team is pretty good.

4 College Freshman

Academics: Good Course Content – The courses have been rigorous, but the professors teach effectively enough to not make it too hard. The professors are also very engaging and interesting in their own ways.

5 College Freshman

Campus Quality: Campus Aesthetics – The atmosphere at Biola is welcoming. groups of students can be seen discussing biblical truths, intellectual problems, and etc. Shouts of joy and salutations can be heard across the campus. Study groups bury their heads together over a difficult problem. Chapels are engaging.

5 College Senior

Campus Quality: Something Unique – Here at biola we have a very unique community of thinkers. We have great faculty that are constantly helping to expand that minds of the students. We have a beautiful campus that truly inspires creativity among the people of biola.

4 College Senior

Drug Safety: No Drug Problems – No drugs on campus. Almost no one does drugs at Biola. There is no peer pressure at biola. It is a very safe and up lifting community of believers. The policy on biolas campus I very much in forced.

5 College Senior

Technology: Most them are really nice. We mainly have mac at Biola. We have a great computer lab across campus from art labs to the production center each room is filled with quality equipment. The printing in the library is great and easy to use. As well we have a great on campus printing lab.

3 College Freshman

Scholarships: Very expensive school. However, financial aid does help a lot. I wish the school offered me more grant money. Not sure if the money I pay will be worth it after 4 years.

5 College Freshman

Drug Safety: Drug Free Is the Way to Be! Very little drug abusers on campus. Out of the few thousand undergraduate students, only a few dozen at the most may be light drug users.

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!
