3 College Junior

Athletics: I am a grad student and live off campus; therefore, I am not in tune with the the sports at my university.

4 Recent Alumnus

Academics: Always competitive and entertaining! The athletes are welcoming and the facilities are opened to all students. Athletic Coaches strive in success and fun. Even outside of sports, coaches help you through insight on many topics of life. They ate life coaches too.

5 Recent Alumnus

Overall Experience: Professors actually take time out of their schedule to talk to you, and even have a coffee break with you. Professors are so naturally cool that you feel a part of them and dedicated to them. The courses are wholesome and so far they have no surprises or flawed grading. Class sizes are average but if its a common Biblical class then expect a lecture oriented huge class.

5 Recent Alumnus

Overall Experience: Emails and text messages from Guidance counselors are often sent to students reminding them to take part of an evaluation or plan for internships in the near future. Every major is taken serious by the Guidance staff and counselors are knowledgeable in the total spectrum of "life after college". The counselors notify students of every opportunity.

Campus Housing: Great, relaxing and unifying! People want to hang out and see others succeed! And its always gratifying to study together and share ambition. Laundry, food, and clubs are an easy process!

5 Recent Alumnus

Greek Life: There is no Greek Life here. The party is us, and our ability to recognize a higher spirit in God!!!

5 Recent Alumnus

Overall Experience: This school is beyond welcoming and allows you to be yourself! Along with this, success is a so near, with the help of teachers, staff, and T.A's willing to push you to be the best you can be. No need to overthink your identity within this gracious communal vibe at Biola. The bliss is natural and accepts your persona as-is. In other words do not change yourself to "fit-in". Fun is always around the corner, and the learning experience is superb.

5 Recent Alumnus

Athletics: There are sports clubs for a various of sports and different people! The coaches are inspiring and do not care if you are an expert, amateur or intermediate skilled. Varsity sports are always competitive and highly ranked; so attending a league or playoff game is always worth-while!

5 College Freshman

Academics: The professors are great, they really care for the students and are passionate about the subject(s) they teach. While at times the workload may feel like a lot, it is not unmanageable.

5 College Freshman

Health & Safety: I always feel safe on campus, campus safety is always out making sure that the students are safe.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: The class sizes are small to medium so that the professors really get to know you, at least your name, rather than just a number or face in the room. There are a wide variety of courses that are interesting. The professors are so great, they genuinely care about the students and I absolutely love how many of them pray before or during class at some point.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: There are many opportunities available to learn how to write a resume and apply for jobs, they also send out lots of information on internships that relate to each student's specific major. These services are quite helpful.

5 College Freshman

Campus Housing: I love living in the dorms because they provide easy access to everything on campus. Living in the dorms also allows me to build community with everyone on my floor.

4 College Freshman

Athletics: The students are moderately to heavily involved in attending sporting events. The school spirit is really seen best at Midnight Madness, it is a great night for everyone!

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I absolutely love Singsporation and all the friends I am making at Biola!

5 College Freshman

Health & Safety: Campus safety is always working from early in the morning to late nights. Moreover, if someone feels unsafe they can call a security wich will then excort them to there room or their car. Inclusive, once in gets dark, one may need their I.D. to enter schol through several main entrances. Overall, one may sleep dafe and sound as we also have La Mirada police department helping to keep our campus safe.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Courses at Biola are really challenging and they are also empack with encouragement as we discover what we want to do in our career life. Professor are really helful in which they will try to find answer even if they do not have the answer at the moment, when soneone is stuck at something. Overall, coyrses are helpful and money worth.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Biola cares students to be well connected to both alumni's and the student career centers. The purpose is to have us know that the mjor we are emvarking may result desire results for o uhh r lifes or if we are ever wondering how a particular major may do for us, Biola's resources help give a sense at what we will be doing. Interships are also resourseful and have variabilities.

4 College Junior

Academics: The curriculum was everything I expected it to be. There was complete, formal integration of the course material of the particular field with Christian theology.

5 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Living on campus really makes the transition of leaovng your family behind easier. Every dorm has there special logo or theme of the year to encouragee those living in the dorm to be part of a family. Inclusive, each floor has time to time bobba runs, or late night eating times. Moreover, living on campus is affortable and accommodate.

3 College Freshman

Greek Life: We dont have Greek life but besides that factor we make things work in which we create small gatherings where we spend time doing fun activities and encouraging one another as the semester gets though.

4 College Freshman

Athletics: School spirit is 100% there, with the gym beeing at its full capacity for a bascketball game or, the field as well when soccer, track, ect. In addition, this full capacity is shown on both male and female sports. Moreover, Biola has this annual Midnight Madness that rally ups the every sport. Overall, the athletics program, along with intermurals and clubs all have a fan support that one may need to experience for themselves.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: My overall experience includes factors full of enjoyment, moments of laugther and so much challenge courses to take. Truly, Biola made me challenge my ways and mind in which my knowledge increases for my future career, as well as learning new possible ways/options of careers to glorify God. Overall, being part of Biola was the best option to increase my education in an environment where I know in part of a huge family; the Biolan community.

5 College Junior

Health & Safety: Biola campus is extremely safe and secure. I feel perfectly safe on campus even during late night hours leaving the library and walking back to the residence hall. Campus police are friendly and always vigilant.

4 College Student

Campus Housing: This year I am in Hart Hall. Hart is a small but very close family-like hall. I am very close with many people in my hall and I tend to know most of the other people who live there. My roommate and I have more than enough space in our room to fit everything we need. Hart is one of the older dorms so every once in a while we lose the electricity in a bathroom. However, I am so thankful to live in Hart and I will hopefully live there again next year.

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!
