4 College Freshman

Diversity: Majority of the races are white, but the reputation is that majority are Christians.

5 College Freshman

Campus Food: The dining at CBU is delicious! There is so much to choose from. You can choose to either go to the caf where you could eat delicious food all you can eat! You can go to Briscos if your thinking of just grabbing some food and hanging out with friends or Subway where you grab and continue on with your day.

4 College Freshman

Campus Quality: There is activities almost all the time here. You just have to be on the look out for some, sometimes. But, once you get involved with an event then you know when other events are going to happen. Games are intense, yet fun and interesting to watch. Library is awesome! You can listen to audios in a room specifically for that, and movies. There is also rooms in the library to go to when you have a group of people to study with. CBU has a lot of green spaces, everywhere you look there is green grass!

3 College Freshman

Guys & Girls: You'll find all sorts of people here at CBU. There are so many different ethnicity's of students, and they're all so nice.

4 College Freshman

Campus Quality: Everything is so amazing here! There are always people willing to help if needed. The teachers are cooperative and so are the students. The people at the cafeteria and briscos are always so happy to swipe you in, and they always have a smile ready to greet you. The events here are awesome! They should have an event every week!

5 College Freshman

Local Area: I have lived in Riverside all my life, so I think the atmosphere and the places surrounding Cal Baptist are amazing. There are so many things to do within a 4 mile radius of the school.

4 College Freshman

Guys & Girls: Both guys and girls know how to dress. They aren't just some nobodies that try to fit in. Everyone likes to have fun at this school, but not in a stupid way.

5 College Sophomore

Campus Quality: Cafeteria: Great!
Campus: Great landscaping!
Facilities: top of the line!

4 College Sophomore

Administration: There is a dress code here. However, I have noticed that it does not get enforced because I have seen young ladies in attire that contradicts CBU's dress code policy. Other than that, the school is abides by its rules.

5 College Freshman

Majors: I had no difficulties getting into my major. I actually switched my major once and I had no difficulty doing it.

Health & Safety: Although I do not see campus officers much, the health, however, is very well done! The school has a health care center with doctors or even councilors there to help you.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: There are good places to eat, however, it is difficult to decide to eat at the school when students, as myself, are on a low budget and cannot afford a $10 meal. Driving to another place to eat is a hassle, especially when trying to save gas.

4 College Sophomore

Technology: Personal computers are welcome. You have internet access anywhere on the campus. There is also a computer lab which is free of use. You only have to pay for printing sheets, which is reasonable since your using ink and paper. Very cheap though, I believe its like 7 cents a sheet or something.

4 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: Campus is in Riverside. There is all kinds of food places near the campus. You could exit the school at any entrance/exit and easily find a place to eat at. Most places do a discount when you show your student ID card.

4 College Sophomore

Parking: Parking on campus is not difficult at all. They have parking all over campus in case you have a class on a different side of the school. Parking spots due fill quickly though, so there is times where parking is hard to find in certain sections. But since classes are all day, people are usually coming and going all day long.

5 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: The off-campus apartments are often recognized to be newly renovated, spacious, yet not too far from campus. They are large enough to have friends over, yet close enough to school. I have never heard of anyone complain about a thing when it comes to off-campus apartments. The cost is equivalent to living on-campus, the campus safety is phenomenal as well. I see this one policeman constantly riding his bike around campus to ensure safety. Similar with any school, students should remain cautious and safe. At California Baptist University, I feel that campus safety does a superb job in making all the students feel safe. I think the biggest drawback attending CBU is the cost. It is a private university nonetheless, so the expense is expected. It is also known to be among the cheapest private university in the state of California. Cost was a matter for me when I was selecting a university, and I'm especially drawn to Christian, private, liberal arts school- so CBU was the largest "bargain" school there was on my list, but it's still pricy nonetheless. In addition, CBU has a very generous financial aid program, several of my friends received plenty of money from the school that makes the cost comparable to that of the California State University tuition.

4 College Freshman

Campus Quality: Everything is newly renovated, CBU is an up and coming school. There are new buildings and new majors formed every year. It's very beautiful with great technological advancements being formed annually. I especially love the housing system of CBU. I live in the cottages which is literally a 3 minute walk away from the Business building (I'm a Business Administration major). Everything is very convenient on-campus, the Business building was actually newly renovated just this year- it's very professional and clean. The Recreation Center was just finished being constructed. It felt like it only took two months for the whole building to come to life. The school's facilities are newly renovated, clean, and resourceful.

4 College Freshman

Campus Quality: Student life is phenomenal at California Baptist University. The welcoming atmosphere and the plethora of activities makes the school one like no other. I especially love the small classroom sizes, allowing plenty of interaction between students and professors. The athletic department if top notch, the student center along with the libraries have several resources in a very organized fashion. The school always has campus events every week ranging from international culture celebrations, speaker forums, or simple fun activities to make the campus a more enjoyable experience.

4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: We have a ton of Emergency Phones on campus if you ever need one. During Orientation, we were also provided with the Campus Safety number. There has been only two suspicious activity reports reported during this 2012 Fall semester and every student has been emailed about it. The campus does a really good job of keeping us updated and safe.

4 College Freshman

Technology: The library can get really crowded during lunch time, but there are plenty other places to go to use a computer. I have passed by numerous computer labs, so the possibilities are nearly endless when it comes to finding a place to use a computer.

3 College Junior

Campus Food: The ADC has a great selection of food, it is buffet styled. They have the best Sunday brunches and do a lot of caf specials like international food week, but after a year of in there everyday makes you sick of the food. Briscos is a good place to eat if you like sandwiches. Thursday and Friday dinners there are way better than the caf. This year we are allowed to swipe at Subway but it is always busy. The Colony Cafe was just built and is pratcial to those living in the colony and has a nice outside eating area.

5 College Junior

Health & Safety: I've never felt unsafe, campus police are always around and have a good presence. As for health, we have an on campus urgent care clinic that accepts almost all insurance so its very easy to access medical care.

4 College Junior

Diversity: A good percentage of our students are white but we have a variety of both hispanic and african american students in both domestic and foreign students as well as foreign european students.
