3 College Sophomore

Campus Quality: They try really hard to get students involved and there are activities, but it's usually all the same. And if you don't live on campus you don't share those same experiences. It is getting better with the new rec center, commuter lounge but for the most part the events they do have are very fun.

3 College Freshman

Athletics: Sporting events at CBU have a big turn out. It is a time for students to get together and put studding aside.

3 College Freshman

Diversity: It is a very diverse on campus at CBU. Everyone is very nice and willing to help.

3 College Freshman

Guys & Girls: People are generally very hot here: like 10s (rich / fashionable / athletic / etc)... but with that, there's kind of a stuck-up attitude (people who are Hot, know it).

(Good news:) If you're hot, you'll probably have a very good chance of finding someone hot, like yourself; (Bad News:) If you're not: you might get disregarded

3 College Freshman

Scholarships: I got some scholarships, but not as many as I needed... and it was with a lot of effort and coming back to the financial aid office several times

4 College Freshman

Weather: The weather fluctuates here, but it makes the campus experience exciting, for one never knows what kind of weather to expect. One day it could me 80 degrees and sunny, and the following day could be 65 degrees and raining. It creates a sense of surprise and excitement.

4 College Freshman

Parking: There are always security guards roaming the campus, checking out parking situations. There's always a parking spot available, but one must park in the right lot in order to avoid getting a ticket.

4 College Freshman

Academics: At my school, you will get the grade you deserve. The professors are always willing to assist you so that you can reach your full potential, but you must truly be diligent in studies and learn to balance between having fun and doing well academically. I'm impressed with the academics at my school.

Off-Campus Housing: I would definitely say live on campus. Its not worth the struggle to live off campus and it is not a super nice area.

5 College Sophomore

Guys & Girls: Not tons of diversity, but a lot of fun. Christian kids looking to enjoy college in a safe way. The girls are gorgeous and super kind.

Transportation: There is no on Campus shuttle system, but because the school is so small, it is not entirely necessary, but it would help a lot.

4 College Senior

Scholarships: easy. Still will cost your a pretty penny to attend.

5 College Senior

Health & Safety: I've never once felt unsafe on campus health-wise or safety-wise. The administration is excellent at keeping students up-to-date on campus happenings.

5 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: There are plenty of food options near California Baptist. A lot of little 'hole in the wall' places too, with great prices and amazing food. Try downtown Riverside, which is just about ten minutes down the street from the university. There are also a good amount of the chain restaurants for those too skeptic to venture out.

4 Recent Alumnus

Weather: A few rainy days here and there just like anywhere else in Southern California but it is generally very nice weather. Sunny skies and temperate. Perfect or outdoor activities.

5 Recent Alumnus

Off-Campus Dining: There is a very large variety of dining around campus. Many of the restaurants will give CBU students discounts as well.

5 College Freshman

Weather: For those who love sun and warmth, the weather at CBU is absolutely amazing. I've lived in So Cal all of my life and I love that there are rarely cold, gloomy days. Walking to classes, hanging out with friends outside of Wanda's or Brisco's, and attending outdoor events is totally easy with the great weather at Cal Baptist.

College Freshman

Greek Life: California Baptist University doesn't have a Greek life-- at least as far as I know. I'm fine with this; it makes social status less of a thing. Even without any Greek life, there is plenty of fun to be had at Cal Baptist. There really is no "cool kid" and "loser kid" groups, although of course there are some students who are just more popular than others. What I love about CBU is that you rarely feel excluded or like an outsider.

5 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: There is a large variety of off-campus dining options. In terms of ethnic diversity, there is Korean food, Chinese food, Thai food, Mexican food, and more. The range of niceness is also quite wide-- there is everything from McDonald's and Del Taco to Cheesecake Factory, P.F. Chang's, and so on.

5 College Freshman

Health & Safety: There is 24/7 Public Safety here. Security is always checking the grounds whether it is night or day. They are either on their bicycles or electric carts roaming around all the campus. Even when it is really late at night and you feel a little nervous to walk to your car, apartment, or anywhere, you can call them right up and will escort you. Very low campus crime; the school is gated all around with locks. There is only a couple of entry ways that you can only use with a swipe of your student id. Otherwise, you will need to enter from the front gate where there is supervision. The community is great and for the most part trustworthy. Many people ride around on their skateboards or bikes and don´t even lock them up. There are too many people around for anything to get stolen. It is just like a CBU family, where most of the time if things were to get left behind or lost, somebody will end up turning it in. It is safe here.

5 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: It is just like any other community. There is grocery stores and restaurants near by. There is a mall right down the street. There is pretty much everything you need surrounding Cal Baptist University; I say it is in a perfect location. Prices are about the same as anywhere else. Student discounts to local movie theaters and more! Transportation is what makes it all so much easier... It is FREE! The public transportation (Metro) is free for CBU students. Just show them your student ID and you can ride anywhere on any bus in the city of Riverside. The metro can take you right down the streets within a mile to the nearest bank, grocery store, restaurants, mall, movie theater, etc. It is all local.

5 College Freshman

Majors: I am so happy where I am at today; It is a blessing. There is not much more to say. This program has it all for me and I am pleased to stay here for the next 4+ years of my life. My career goals: I plan on majoring in Business Administration; concentrating in International Business and Business Management. I want to minor in a Christian Studies, more along the lines of International Studies or Global Studies because it goes hand on hand with International Business. I want to combine all of this with missionary work. There are many things I plan on doing with this education, and Cal Baptist is there to prepare me for this. I do not worry on finding a job in my field when I graduate. I have faith in God, and I know that it will all work out at the right time; God´s time.

5 College Freshman

Majors: I have not had one yet but I am definitely looking on getting one since I am planning on pursuing my education in Business Administration. I know that by taking internships, it will better prepare me for the career world. I will have more of an advantage than someone who has never had a internship.

5 College Freshman

Majors: California Baptist University is everything you can imagine in a college. I am very satisfied with where I am at. The education here is amazing, and the activities offered are incredibly awesome. They also host many free events. There is a great community here, and not just any but a spiritual community. There are always people greeting each other and having biblical/non-biblical conversations. This is a great place to start off the years of our future. Get ahead, and apply today! They help plan for our futures by also providing career services and much more!
