Biola's collection of students is very diverse, varying from "hipsters" to "homeschoolers," although most of them are just genuine human beings that aren't afraid to sit down and talk about anything. Many of the guys can be found wearing flannel and growing out their beards, whereas girls dress modestly but are usually very artistic. Simply put, the thrift stores nearby are doing quite well due to the Biolan population. Biola, on the outside, could definitely be stereotypical of a liberal arts school.
Many people are in relationships on campus, and the joke "Bridal Institute of Los Angeles" (a play on "Bible Institute of Los Angeles" or BIOLA) is actually not that much of a joke, as most relationships bloom into marriage, if not during the course of school, at least by the end of the four years. The ratio of three girls to every guy is strong and noticeable, but this doesn't seem to affect the dating arena of Biola. It should also go without saying that Biola is virtually devoid of any sexual promiscuity.
