3 College Sophomore

Scholarships: i received a decent amount of financial aid but i feel like they can do more for the kids who are independent students, like myself, who have to pay for college all by ourselves

2 College Sophomore

Party Scene: there is nothing really going on in the night except if your hanging out with your friends.

4 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: Off-campus dining in Riverside is very diverse. They have something for everyone I think. If you want American, Italian, Chinese, Mexican, or some frozen yogurt..they have it. My friends and I like to go to Cherry on Top for some froyo just to hang out away from school. Also, CBU is close to a popular mall so that also provides tons of dining.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: Campus housing is good at CBU. It's not the best, but it is also not the worse. The freshman dorms are typical at other colleges but since CBU is a private university, there are rules you have to follow set by the resident advisor. I met a lot of great people while living in the dorms. The options for upperclassmen gives you more independence than the dorms however.

3 College Sophomore

Diversity: CBU is mostly a caucasian student body but they are striving and constantly looking for more diversity on their campus.

3 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: I feel generally safe as long as I'm on campus. There are always public safety officers around, and they keep you well informed if something happens. The area outside the school can be a bit shady at times, but the campus itself is safe.

5 College Sophomore

Majors: My career goals are to act an write professionally, and I believe that this program is effectively teaching me to succeed. However, this is not going to be without hard work and doing as many extracurricular activities and seminars that I can manage.

3 College Sophomore

Majors: I haven't had an internship here, and I don't know for sure if I will. I hope to work as an intern in LA, but I don't have that experience yet, so there's not much I can talk about. I think an internship will help no matter what you're doing.

4 College Sophomore

Majors: I love the theater program at the school. The classroom experience is challenging and thought-provoking. The teachers know what they are doing. An issue is that we don't have very many musical theater productions and classes, but if your interest is in straight plays, this is a fantastic school.

3 College Sophomore

Weather: The weather is hardly ever extreme. It does get hot during the year, but nothing to unbearable. During the winter, it occasionally gets cold and rainy, but not very often. Overall, the weather is not what I would consider beautiful, but it's bearable.

4 College Freshman

Parking: There are typically tons of spots to park and they are all pretty conveniently place by classes. Be wary though, if you park in a lot you aren't supposed to you WILL get fined.

5 College Freshman

Drug Safety: Drugs and alcohol are not allowed on campus and are never seen around campus either.

4 College Freshman

Weather: Typically great weather, but hey that's southern California for you!

4 College Freshman

Academics: The quality of my professors has been outstanding thus far.

3 College Sophomore

Guys & Girls: Guys aren't that outgoing it seems. There is a phrase at my school called "ring by spring" so some guys are scared of a casual relationship being taken too seriously. Some girls are out of their mind and trying to get a Mrs. degree here at CBU. I would never pay that much tuition to just find a nice christian guy and become a stay at home mom!

5 College Sophomore

Weather: We have beautiful California weather, most of the time we have sunshine and it hardly rains. Although Riverside in general is really dry and desert like, the school spends a lot of money on keeping the campus beautiful, not to mention they use sprinklers to always keep the grass green. People like to study on the front lawn sometimes while tanning, and it just makes your hard day better with sunshine.

4 College Freshman

Majors: The admission is not unreasonsble and getting accepted isnt too hard. All you need is 2 letters of recommendation, 45 dollars, transcripts, and to fill out the application.

5 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: You get student discounts at subway and bakers because california baptist university owns the lot.

4 College Junior

Health & Safety: I have never had to attend the Student Health Center but based on what others have told me the facilities are good.

4 College Junior

Technology: The network on campus is always at top speed and there is never any issues with being able to access it with your own personal devices. The computer labs are always open and always have computers available which run at fast speeds and are up to date. Printing and copyign fees are low which makes it convenient for students.

3 College Junior

Off-Campus Dining: Directly around the school there are numerous fast food chains but the campus is located in the center of RIverside and is only a very short drive to the Tyler Mall where there are numerous restaurants in both American and Ethnic. Downtown Riverside is also a short drive from campus and offers many options for dining, both fast food, bistro, and restaurants.

5 College Freshman

Campus Quality: Campus life is awesome. They are always planning events for students to participate in. The campus itself is very involved and you are known by name not by a number. Everything is greeen, if it isnt then it is replaced by green!

4 College Freshman

Campus Quality: Our school is beautiful. It is always working on making it clean and tidy. The campus is very green and lively.

4 College Freshman

Local Area: California Baptist Unviersity campus is great, beautiful and welcoming. Riverside, which is where it is located isnt the nicest area in riverside but nicer than some parts.

4 College Junior

Majors: I am currently in the Online Professional Studies Program for Cal Baptist University. I enjoy the program because although I am not on campus or a traditional student, I am still able to attend CBU because the program meets my financial needs since it is half the price from the traditional program. The OPS program is flexible with my schedule and it is mostly online that I take my classes and sometimes there are classes where I come to campus once a week, which is pretty nice and convenient.
