Campus Food: On campus dining is fine. Most have their issues with it because if you live on campus, you are required to have a meal plan. Eating the same place everyday is sickening. There are a few options but they are all prepared by the same company so it is all the same. They try their best to provide variety and value.

Party Scene: We are a Christian school. This is not saying that students do not go out and party and drink but it is not advertised. We do not go around discussing where to go clubbing at. Most people go out for drinks and dinner at the Yard House.

Local Area: We are in the middle of the City of Riverside. There is the mall on one side and the plaza on the other. People quite often go to the movies or eat at Chipotle. Many people drive out to Disneyland often as well.

Campus Housing: I live in a family housing area. It is a designated area for families and the graduate students.We got stuck with the reject apartments in my opinion.

From my observations I would say the two larger apartment complex housing areas have a ton of events that students love. The apartment physically are way better also.

Overall, the cost to live on campus is decent. It is continuing to increase each year though which makes it more difficult to keep up with.

Guys & Girls: There are a variety of all students at CBU, which is appreciated.

Administration: The school is strict, but in a postive way. While paying for a private Christian education, I don't want to hear bad language, see offensive clothing, hear about parties, or have to see public affection. I am here to learn, which is the focus and goal of the school. I appreciate the lack of drama the atmosphere at CBU provides.

Administration: There is a no alcohol and drugs rule. There is a strict dress code; for example, girls cannot show bra straps, shorts and skirts have to be a certain length and students cannot wear anything gang affiliated or display anything inappropriate on clothing.

4 College Junior

Academics: Professors are all passionate and care about their students. Some professors open with prayer and most include a christian aspect to the class. It is difficult to get classes because athletes and music students get first priority. Popular study areas are the library or ARC.

4 College Junior

Guys & Girls: Guys are good, clean, christian guys. Girls are very pretty. Majority of the school is in with fashion. Most of the good guys are already taken.

Party Scene: Partying is only off campus at CBU, so there isn't too much of a night life. Some people stay up late and play frisbee or volleyball, but mostly it is boring at night. On the weekends nearly everyone goes home since so many people leave for the weekend. Weekends are really boring at CBU, and the town of Riverside doesn't have much to do, plus I would not recommend leaving campus at night.

Technology: The library has a computer lab at California Baptist University, and it is the most convenient place to print. It cost 5 cents a page, and there are times when the library is full and no computer is open to print. Almost everyone has a laptop, so the computer lab is generally empty except durning crunch times when many people need to print. I would recommend having your own printer.

3 College Sophomore

Weather: It's super windy . Classes are really far from the housing so it really stinks when it's cold outside

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: I live in the colony for upper class-men. The colony apts. are very spacious but unfortunately a little farther from campus then one would like . All though we do have a pool the jacuzzi has been broken for most the year . Also if any thing breaks in your apt. It well take forever for maintenance to come fix it.

5 College Sophomore

Campus Quality: Cal baptist is the most welcoming Christian college there is they really want to see you succeed and get you degree . Every one on campus is generally happy as well as kind . The professors are always willing to work with a person who is having trouble as well .

Academics: Aviation is new addition to the school and starts this fall but all the right steps were taken by the professor to make it happened

3 College Freshman

Party Scene: The only nightlife I know of is in Downtown riverside. There are coffee shops and bars where people can hang out. But the bars are for 21 and up obviously. I like to go to the coffee shops.

4 College Freshman

Campus Food: The ADC isn't gourmet, but it has a good amount of options and the food is great quality. There is also Wanda's, which has great daily specials and is good for commuters without meal plans, and Brisco's and Subway, which can be paid for with a meal plan or without one.

5 College Freshman

Parking: There is a lot of parking spots and it is free to get a parking permit!
