4 College Freshman

Technology: There are plenty of computer labs with lots of com

4 College Freshman

Transportation: We can use the buses for free as long as we have our student IDs.

College Sophomore

Athletics: The athletic community at California Baptist University is a hard working close knit type of people. Most the athletic student carries a full load in academics on top of their normal everyday practices. The school encourages that each student carries high grade point average in order to ensure a successful future.

Off-Campus Housing: Not sure because i live on campus but i here from people that commute that they wish they could live on campus.

5 College Freshman

Athletics: Its a great school. Tries to get students involved in many different ways. We have great sports and the coaches are well trained and take care of their students. Their is always students going out and supporting our games. We have this group called the crazy 8 that just gets the crowd pumped and spreads the school spirit. I would definitely recommend if you are in a sport to come to CBU.

Weather: Located in sunny Southern California, students don't run the risk of being snowed in or flooding. There are occasional heat waves but they're only temporary at the beginning of the school year. Classes are rarely or never cancelled due to weather so education is not interrupted.

5 College Sophomore

Drug Safety: CBU is a dry campus and does not tolerate the use of drugs and alcohol. The consequences are not worth taking the risk.

3 College Sophomore

Scholarships: I had to constantly check in with financial aid to make sure my documents were in order. They didn't contact me when my documents were or were not received so I had to stay on top of things.

3 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: The health is good at CBU. The University sends messages to your LancerMail to warn of possible health scares, etc. The safety, however, is a C-. Unauthorized people can easily enter the campus even with the presence of Public Safety. There have been several bikes stolen from right in front of the living areas.

5 College Sophomore

Campus Quality: CBU is putting the finishing touches on a brand new gymnasium! It will include new treadmills and even have work out groups. Big upgrade from the old classroom-sized gym.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Quality: CBU has a great Game Room, but the most popular places to hang out on campus are Brisco's and for commuters there is the Commuter Lounge. Brisco's has a lounge-type of atmosphere. It has a flat screen tv and a fire pit for bon fires. Someone takes a guitar and it turns into an acoustic concert! It's great! :D

4 College Sophomore

Local Area: Fun in Riverside – Riverside is a pretty large city, so it has a lot of fun stuff to do. DOwntown Riverside alone has a number of different activities and events going on year around. The RIverside Plaza also has a lot of exciting stuff going on. My recommendation to be to check out the Mission Inn, it really is a fantastic place.

4 College Sophomore

Majors: I would definitely make the same decision. I love my major. I plan on teaching English overseas and CBU has done an excellent job of preparing me for this.

4 College Sophomore

Majors: English is pretty easy, the workload is not too hard. Christian Studies on the other hand, is a pretty challenging major.

4 College Sophomore

Majors: Applying for CBU is easy and is a relatively painless process. The hardest thing to get was the letters of recommendation.

College Freshman

Greek Life: There is no activity pertaining to Greek life on campus.

4 College Freshman

Campus Quality: California Baptist University's campus life is excellent in all aspects. There's plenty of beautiful spots on campus to just sit around and hang out with friends. There's always some sort of activity to attend with lots of fun and friends to be with.

4 College Freshman

Campus Quality: My school has modern, up-to-date facilities that are easily accessible every day. The staff and faculty are always around to provide help and answer any questions as well. The students are all wonderful to be around and really friendly.

3 College Freshman

Scholarships: I received some financial aid. However, it was hard to raise enough money for both semesters because of how much the school cost to go there. While I was working on situating my financial aid, there was some miscommunication on how they ran things which caused some issues and doubts about me still being able to attend. The best advice I can give for someone trying to get financial aid for Cal Baptist is to do well in high school to earn more money. Also, filling out a lot a scholarships is definitely helpful.

4 College Freshman

Local Area: The Riverside area where California Baptist University is located is a lovely area. There are local store and food restaurants available that are walking distance. Some attractions include the ice skating rink as well as the mall. The ice rink is especially enjoyable during the summer. The mall is always a nice place to enjoy a friend's company. During the winter the Mission Inn is decorated for Christmas which is a fun activity to enjoy. It is a major attraction to the Riverside area. The safety on campus is securing. The campus security patrols all hours of the day and there are emergency phones placed around the parking lot. The best part about this campus are the attitudes the staff and students have towards other people. They are friendly and generous. Everyone is respectful to one another and they are helpful in all aspects.

5 College Senior

Academics: I am at CBU to complete pre requisites for Loma Linda's Dental Hygiene program. Most of my science professors have been great and are so full of knowledge. The classes were tough however I definitely have been learning a lot.

4 College Senior

Technology: The computers at the school are mostly good. The computer lab is available to all students. However the internet connection is constantly shutting down.

College Senior

Party Scene: Im not involved in any night life. I am a commuter focused on school and go home after my classes

4 College Junior

Campus Food: The best food in town - better than any I've had on any college campus! And, the variety is like being at The Taste of LA!

4 College Junior

Majors: The Professional Studies Program is top notch. It caters to the working student and offers the 3 avenues to continuing education: on campus, hybrid and online. The individual attention is an added bonus. I am enjoying the flexibility to continue school while still working full time and taking care of my family.
