Overall Experience: California Baptist University is by far one of the best schools I had ever visited. All of the students are kind and willing to help, and best of all, they all walk in the path of God, just like me. This school makes me feel at home.

Overall Experience: California Baptist University (CBU) is a Christian college but we accept other religious beliefs. The campus is beautiful considering it as a private school. The faculty & staff are very welcoming.

3 College Senior

Overall Experience: I just finished my freshman year at California Baptist University. The campus is small, which is beneficial for classroom sizes, but not if you are trying to get the full college experience. As to be expected, there are no sororities or fraternities. It is a dry and tobacco free campus; so, no alcohol or drugs, which may be a positive depending on your personality. It's a private Christian University, so needless to day the campus is beautiful. Surprisingly, I'm not Christian. So sometimes I regret my decision to attend. Merely because you are required to attend 15 chapels per semester, each lasting an hour. Overall, I'd say it is a pretty positive experience. There are few distractions, and everyone does their best to help you out. Aside from the strict rules that are typically associated with a religious campuses, it's a good University. Oh, and it's super expensive. When all costs are included, it's approximately $40,000.

Overall Experience: My first year at California Baptist University went very well. I loved all of my professors, and I obtained a lot of new knowledge. The people who work there and the students are kind and always have a positive attitude. Best of all, this is a Christian university, so I am able to learn even more about God.

Overall Experience: The only reason I did not give it a five star score was because the price is pretty high, but other than that the school is pretty amazing.

4 College Student

Overall Experience: I think my college is great but of course it could be improved. I think it costs way too much money but again it is a private university.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I really can't imagine myself going anywhere else. The community of the school is undeniably the best there is, there is a feeling of comfort and welcome that is unlike any of the other colleges I visited. CBU makes it known to students that the real reason we are here studying is not for success, but to glorify the Lord through our lives. That while academics are a priority, there are even more important things! They definitely want you to "Live Your Purpose"!That has changed the perspective on my life- now because of my relationship with Jesus Christ and my zealousness for Him I can have better studying habits, relationships, and goals that reflect His love for me. How wonderful to have that in a college!

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: My overall experience of my school has been exhilarating, aspiring, and amazing. I have not only learned how to apply my purpose in life but also how to grow closer to God. I absolutely love the environment that chapel brings. Singing praises to God and learning God's word. Also, the teachers are really understanding when it comes to academics. They teach so that everyone can comprehend and understand it. And if some don't they always leave an open availability to have those students come and get one on one tutoring. What makes my school unique is the slogan "live your purpose." This not only helps with coming to terms on who you want to be, but how you can shape and enhance God's destined purpose for you. I wouldnt choose a different school because I think this is the best school. They not only care about each student but also, how each student can live their purpose through the great commission.

Overall Experience: My first year of college was amazing! It really was a great experience. There were so many opportunities to meet new people (great people). I attend a private school so I stay distant from college parties which I love because I could never party and study at the same time. At my university there are exciting events such as Midnight Madness. Midnight Madness is an event where the basketball players at school are introduced. There are also events such as Twirp and Woo Fest. Twirp is an event where ladies ask a man out on a date instead of the man asking a lady. Woo Fest is a talent show where the men try to impress the ladies. I feel like attending California Baptist University has brought me closer to God. Attending chapel has led me to realize many great things. I am truly blessed to have the opportunity to attend California Baptist University.
