Biola boasts an interesting combination of buildings and facilities—many of the original buildings on Biola's campus being made of brick and mortar and the others being rather shiny and new in comparison. The older buildings obviously show some aging, but rather than getting an uneasy feeling from the older buildings, they exude a warm, homey feeling to staff and students alike. Juxtaposed next to these older buildings are the newer buildings, such as the business building and Talbot Building. While these buildings don't have the same feeling as the others, they reflect the professionalism practiced on Biola's campus. That being said, most of the older buildings are currently being examined for future renovations.
The athletic centers, such as the Chase Gymnasium and the weight room, are both well kept and are always in use—not only by athletes, but also by students and professors! The equipment is relatively new, and there is plenty of it to go around. Buildings aside, the flora and fauna are not outrageous nor unkempt, and the outdoor furniture isn't unsightly, either. The fields and gardens are tended to regularly, and the campus is kept exceptionally clean—students have rarely seen trash anywhere, aside from the waste bins. The Biola Library has been praised by those who use it as not only a great place for studying, but also a quiet place to escape to when the world seems too loud. Students love the library and rarely have any problems besides finding a seat at the computer lab. Biola is a very nice and comfortable campus, but some students have a hard time remaining anchored with so much going on off campus. Being located in La Mirada, opportunities for students to go to the beach or visit Disneyland and other various places in Los Angeles (The Getty, Greek Theatre) are usually well received and acted upon.
