5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I rate this school as the best because it was the most welcoming orientation I have ever been to. After two different community colleges, this university was a breath of fresh air. The folks who have guided me through the entire experience are there to help and have done so generously. Also, I was enrolled, about to start my first class before the other colleges I applied to even responded to my application.

Overall Experience: What I love about my school is how even though it a campus it feels like home. The activities we have really helps everyone get connected and feel plugged into school. The social encounters are by far the best things about this school.

Overall Experience: The teachers genuinely care. I'm in the Online and Professional Studies Program and it is the best program I could have chosen. I'm a full time mom and full time student and I never thought that would be possible, but with the CBU OPS, I am on my way to fulfilling my dream.

Overall Experience: Attending California Baptist University is the best decision I've ever made. Before I started school here I regretted not picking a larger university. I thought it would still feel like high school. I am now a sophomore and I don't regret picking CBU at all. I love the size of the university, the people I've met, classroom sizes, and especially the living areas! My favorite experience has definitely been living in the freshman dorms. You can't get a community like that anywhere else.

Overall Experience: My experience so far has ben okay. there are many clubs which is cool, but no diversity among the clubs and student body. So for some cultural people including myself tend to feel out of place. Besides that and the overwhelming price of tuition i would say my experience here has been okay

Overall Experience: As soon as I decided to go to CBU I almost regretted not going to a big University or Cal State that had more students, extracurricular activities, and a HUGE campus. I soon came to realize a month into school that California Baptist University is the perfect University for anyone who wants decent classes sizes, great relationships with faculty and staff who genuinely care about you and your education, and be in an environment that is so accepting and diverse. CBU's campus is constantly expanding, and although its size does not compare to larger Universities that surround the Inland Empire, its perfect location compensates! Its located about an hour or less from any of the main attractions (Knott's berry Farm, Disneyland, Newport or Huntington beach), 10 minutes or less from just about any SoCal store or eatery chain you can think of, and is smack in the middle of the beautiful city of Riverside. Attending CBU, without a doubt, is the best choice I have ever made! Moving into my 3rd year, my love for CBU and its community continues to grow and I would recommend CBU to anyone and everyone!

Overall Experience: My favorite experience would have to be attending the classes. The respect from every student and staff member is what makes my school unique. I would choose my school again due to the willingness of help from every staff member.

Overall Experience: As an engineering student, I will say that the faculty is absolutely incredible. They are kind, knowledgeable, and ACCESSIBLE. This was my primary reason for choosing CBU; I believe in the college of engineering's mission and have yet to be disappointed on that front.

Sidenote: the school is also beautiful and we are ranked in the top 3 for campus food in California.

Overall Experience: What makes my school unique is the way they help every individual student with whatever problem they are facing. They give students a way to become a family by providing events, great academics, and a faith based atmosphere. Upon attending CBU I have felt connected to each teacher I meet and I feel connected to each student I encounter. Not only does CBU offer great academics, but also they provide outstanding food selections. You can be a vegan or vegetarian and still have a wide variety of food to choose from in the cafeteria. I love CBU and its unique community so much I wouldn't want to choose any other school if I had the chance.

Overall Experience: For the most part, majority of the teachers care about you. I love that it's a Christian school because only am I growing academically but in my walk with God as well. My spiritually has taken a huge leap since I moved out here and started attending California Baptist University.

Overall Experience: I have never met so many positive people in one environment. I have never met one rude person since I have been attending California Baptist University. The professors that I have had are all outstanding. Now, some people say "there no such thing as a positive environment" than you have not been on CBU's campus. I love this university and every person that I have met in the past will tell the same thing. ' Every time I am on the campus I feel Jesus present.

Overall Experience: My experience at CBU has been an eye opening experience- it has been both challenging and fun. Even though I go to a Christian university I struggled a lot with my faith during my first semester. I've grown closer with a lot of people at CBU because of my struggles. CBU has a lot of loving people at their school, people never fail to pass a smile here and there. With this next upcoming year I plan on going on a service project with them out in East Asia. My school is very big on bringing love to people who need it and I have thus been a victim of that. It has been an amazing experience and I appreciate every way people reach out to me as a class mate, student and peer.

Overall Experience: I love going to Cal Baptist University because the teachers make sure they apply their teaching somehow with Christianity. I am a christian so that's why I choose a christian school. I had to take a Bible class as well and I learned a lot about praying, which this was an enjoyable experience for me. The people are friendly at this school and the atmosphere is friendly.

Overall Experience: I am overwhelmed by how amazing California Baptist University is. The professors there are so caring. The teacher to student ratio is small and I believe that is one of the reasons I have had the confidence of asking questions if I don't understand anything. The quality of education is extremely wonderful. The professors know so much about their profession and they not only answer the questions you have about in-class lectures, but they are also willing to chat with you about your career choices and which paths they have taken to get where they are. Their godly advice and love for others radiates through their way of speaking to you. Also, the opportunities given there are more than I ever wanted. There is great food (Freshman 15 uh-oh). There are healthy choices of food, it just depends on what you happen to be craving that day. There are opportunities for cheap and once in a life time adventures. There are recreational sports which I have loved since I have started school. The events are really great too! I love the traditions of CBU and the overall positive vibe. The students and staff there are so friendly and have a way of making you feel welcome. Also, they give great financial help to students in need.

Overall Experience: When I first came to my school, I completely rejected the life style and the environment it had to offer. I was aggravated that my school had mandatory chapel, curfews, and visiting hours for guys and girls to come over at the freshmen dorms. I was completely ungrateful because I was putting my focus on comparing the social life at a private Christian college to Cal States and UC's. I needed a huge reality check, and that came with tears and anger within myself. When I needed help, that was exactly what I got: help with education, spiritual growth, and developing a more mature mindset. At CBU I was able to seek a purpose within myself and why I was put on this earth. My school is great for what it has to offer and for what it continues to offer me: spiritual healing, great professors, and a wonderful support system from staff/student body.

Overall Experience: California Baptist University is an amazing college! I fell in love with the school when I was in seventh grade, and I still love it today. The school has so many majors to choose from so you will always get the perfect degree. CBU has a gorgeous campus, the students are so friendly. Our food is ranked SECOND in the entire state, and we have multiple eatery options. If given the option, I will always choose to go to CBU.

Overall Experience: California Baptist University is a great university if you are Christian. Not everyone is a Christian, but life there is easier if you are one. It was difficult to make the transition from public school my whole life to a private, religious school.

Overall Experience: The orientation that transfers/freshman have to attend is really needed. It gives you a lot of information and they help you with any questions or problems you may have. Then the weekend before school they have this event going on where you can bring your family and friends to come. You meet with your new professors. Have a picnic on their front lawn and meet new people. Then they take us to this baseball game and you meet more people! It's really awesome cause going in as a newbie and not knowing anyone can be really hard on someone!

Overall Experience: My experience at school has a lot to do with how involved I am at school and as of right now I am not very involved, but this coming fall I plan on doing more and getting more involved so I know my experience will get better.
