4 College Junior

Campus Food: Nobody does Sunday Brunch like CBU. They roll out the red carpet for students and outsiders. Every two Tuesdays in a row I have the most wonderful cheesy bread you will ever taste. Lately the Alumni Dining Commons hasn't been serving its best on the weekdays but I forgive them every Sunday and Tuesday. For every other day, Briscoes serves great breakfast and killer snacks at late night. For your safety, do not ingest Briscoes pasta...it's crunchy every time. I don't even have to talk about Chic-Fil-A because it's delicious every single time. We do have a new dining place which is the El Monte Grill. It's pretty much a knock-off Chipotle so if you're a Chipotle fan, come hungry!

Cal Baptist is seriously blessed when it comes to food. It definitely influenced my decision to attend.

Campus Housing: The housing at Cal Baptist is as luxurious as college gets! Freshman have the option to stay in regular dorms or in cute little six person cottages. Upper classmen have four different options for apartment living with some places being brand new! Older housing like the Village or University Place can get dingy but the community makes up for it. The whole Residence Life Administration can be useless if you have a housing conflict (specifically Resident Director Janelle Fagg) but the CBU RAs are some of the nicest people I know on campus. If you really want to experience CBU, live on campus.

Academics: Psychology major and philosophy minor!

Every class is interesting, and the professors are experts in their fields. Whether you want to focus on the research aspect of psychology, counseling, or use psych to apply to other areas, there is a place for you. Your professors and the career center on campus are extremely helpful in answering any questions in how to reach your goals. With psychology it's best to seek experience and internships and this school is so helpful in guiding you to the right places to do so.

Every professor I have had makes the class an open discussion, you're free and feel comfortable to ask questions to get the most out of your lecture. Dr. Pelletier is a great psych professor to have and is really funny. His classes are always really cool to take.

In regards to philosophy, Dr. Bates is the professor who convinced me to study in that area. When you really find something you're good at and the professors recognize it (what happened to me with phi) so many more doors open for you! It's amazing how much I found that psych and philosophy overlap, I'm more confident now for the future and the people I am going to help. Psychology and philosophy are great areas to study here at CBU, whether you are a Christian are not.

Athletics: The team performance is great because they are able to work together in a group. They get along with each other and support them in the sport battle when competing other colleges. The athletic facilities does a excellent job of taking care of their athletic. They want them to be ok, and tries to help in any way with their injuries or hurt.

Off-Campus Housing: Their parking is great because they have enough space parking for everyone and that the parking permit is free. Also, the view next to the parking lot is very beautiful, it's like beach because the palm trees and green grass next to it. Their safety is quite lenient. They want everyone to be safe and that they do really do care for their purpose here in Cbu community.

Administration: Their campus strictness is fairly fair. The strictness provides a lot of protection for the Cbu students, environment, and community. This helps students' academic and social lives. For their academic, it keeps them focusing and realizing that they are actual learning: academic progress. For social lives, it keeps them safe and be in safe protection at all.

Scholarships: My experience with financial aid is good but not enough to cover whole financial debt. I'm experiencing a struggle because it's hard to afford my school use; such as my books, transportation, food, etc.. I am leftover with a big weight of money leftover to pay.

Party Scene: The best parties at my school is the chapel. being with Jesus. Cbu students come together to worship and hear the word of God. It is like rest and peace that God graciously gifted for us. We get to enjoy the peace and spiritual worship of the music. Then the sermon, is it like word that metaphor as a spiritual feeding to our soul; we are being spiritual fed. This created a positive impact on the students experience and the college environment.

They have all the food and drink that is necessary and delicious; like coffee, burgers, french fries. Their dining halls is very spacious and clean. They have have room to walk, enough tables and chair. Also, their value of campus food is decent, it is affordable, not high or too low.

Off-Campus Housing: I really never thought about not living on campus.

College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: I dont really go out in the night so i really can't help.

5 College Freshman

Administration: I personally don't mind because it leaves control on the school's part and it's a baptist university, so if your looking for a party life. Don't come here.

3 College Freshman

Scholarships: Its an expensive university so its pretty hard to gain financial resources but if you want to come here you'll be willing to try.

4 College Freshman

Party Scene: The parties/events on campus is great! Fun and interactive and draws in more student body.

3 College Freshman

Campus Food: I love the campus food. Plenty of options for food. A downside is that you can't swipe for your friends if you end up with a lot of meal swipes at the end and your friend is running out.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Great social atmosphere and community. Feel more involved. Meet lots of new people. Downside is you have to pay for laundry but that's expected. Close to classrooms and centrally located.

College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: I have not lived anywhere by my school. I know that there are many apartments, but that is all I know. I do not know about cost and things of the sort, so I can not truly comment on it.

4 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: All around CBU, there are a variety of food options, from all your fast food chains to restaurants. The Riverside Plaza and the Tyler mall are just down the street like a 5 minute drive so students with cars have plenty of options. However for students without a car are limited to whats at CBU unless they can find a ride, take a bus, or walk to the mall or plaza.
