Majors: Vast Array – If I had the opportunity, having my sights on something of the medical field, that is definitely along the lines on what kind of internship I would like to do. Being a science major, you need to do some sort of internship in order to graduate. Having your priorities set is a major issue that you would need to factor in to your schedule. Depending on what other commitments you have already engaged in, having an internship on the side could affect you in school. I currently do not an intership, although I am looking, because I do not have a car on campus.

Academics: Work Hard – Professors are pretty much available whenever you need to talk to them and discuss whatever you need to. They are very understanding which is what I love. Workload definitely varies from one professor to another. Because they feel that we are adults, homework per se does not really make a difference in the final grade for the course-unless doing/not doing it affects your test scores.

Off-Campus Dining: Love Getting Off-Campus Sometimes – Off-campus dining is a fun thing to do when you do not feel like eating in the dining commons. They are pretty much accessible because there is a bus system that runs near our campus. Going to the plaza is mostly where we would go because there is a variety of restaurants with varying prices. For instance, there is a panera, cherry on top, California Pizza Kitchen to name a few.

Academics: Advisers Really Help – Being a science major, my professors have been in my position and are able to steer me in the right direction. I have one specific adviser who is assigned to me and I am free to go in and talk with him if I have any questions. Each adviser takes such an interest in their students and some have even made connections for their students.

Overall Experience: Could Not Ask for More – Being at California Baptist University has been amazing. We have our own community and it makes me feel so comfortable. We are provided with so many different opportunities and are able to make the most of the college experience. Academics are very important and I definitely strive to be the most I could be.

Academics: Pre-Nursing at CBU – It's a hard major however there is a sense of camaraderie that is established with fellow pre-nursing/nursing students. There are a lot of other students who are in similar situations that you are in and it's nice to have a big group of fellow students for support. Professors are great and labs are brand new.

3 College Sophomore

Local Area: Inland Empire- Southern California – There is a lot to do in the "Inland Empire" of Southern California, however you will need some form of transportation to do these things.

4 College Sophomore

Majors: I am completely satisfied with my decision to pursue my bachelor's degree in nursing at CBU. I waited a few years after high school to go back to college because I was not in a position to pay tuition unless I was sure it was for a career I absolutely wanted. Yes, the courses are harder than most other majors but the salary, career stability and growth are well worth the investment. Graduates of CBU's nursing program are often preferred over other job applicants because of CBU's excellent reputation within the community to produce such well rounded alumni.

4 College Sophomore

Majors: CBU BSN Program – The majority of nursing (both associate's and bachelor's degree) programs in Southern California are impacted. I chose CBU not only for the Christ centered education but because their nursing program is not impacted. Tuition is more costly but the pre-nursing courses taught here are exceptional at preparing students for the nursing program, something that I was not used to at the community colleges I previously attended. The BSN program is competitive, however it is not impossible to get into and there aren't hundreds of applicants vying for a few open spots. CBU just opened up another application period and is currently accepting 120 students per year in their state of the art facility.

5 College Sophomore

Majors: As a nursing student at CBU you will gain beneficial work experience in clinical rotations as part of the program.

4 College Senior

Party Scene: Clean Fun – Since it is a Christian university, no drinking or smoking is allowed, but there is a lot of clean fun.

4 College Senior

Administration: Strict but Fair – In terms of rules, the school is strict; it's to be expected because it is a Christian University.

College Senior

Greek Life: NO Frats of Sors – There are not fraternities or sororities; it is a Christian Campus.

4 College Senior

Local Area: A Lot to Do – The key is to have a car. If you have a car there is so much you can do. You can go to the mall or drive to disneyland (about 45 min away). There is no reason why any student should feel bored.

4 College Senior

Health & Safety: I have always felt comfortable being around campus both day and night times. Just follow standard precautions

4 College Senior

Academics: Great Professors – The class room sizes are very small, so you get more one on one time with your professors. The professors also go out of their way to make themselve avaliable to you. Their doors are ways open whether you need help with class work or just need to talk, they are there to listen and help in any way that they can.

3 College Senior

Parking: There is a lot of parking on campus but it can be a nightmare if your looking for a spot near the front entrance. Be sure to get to campus at least 30 minutes before your class to make sure you get the best spots. Also parking permit are very cheap, they are $25.00 for the whole school year.

5 College Senior

Off-Campus Housing: Apartments Are Much Cheaper Than Dorms! They have a lot of affordiable appartments in walking distance of the school. Save some money and gain more freedom and live off campus.

3 College Senior

Scholarships: Process Could Be Smoother – I received some financial aid, but it wasn't as easy as I thought it would be. A couple of my forms got lost in the shuffle, so I had to stay on top of things. I suggest making regular in-person appointments with your financial aid officer to make sure things are going smoothly. I wish they would have provided me with more aid because working 2 jobs and going to school full time was a real struggle.

5 College Senior

Campus Food: Great! Very Tasty – They have to main eating areas. They are both great. They's a lot of variety in the main dinning hall and the food great flavors are sure to make you want to go back for seconds, maybe even thirds. Their cafe as has great food and drinks. They make the most amazing white chocolate mochas, for all you coffee drinkers out there. The cafe also has very affordable drink prices for those of you who don't have meal plans.

5 College Sophomore

Administration: Strictness Is Not a Worry – CBU does a great job at keeping the campus free from violators. The best I've ever seen on a college campus.

4 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: CBU Is a Good Place to Eat – CBU has three great places to eat but I think once in awhile they should add something new to their menus.

5 College Junior

Drug Safety: No Pressure – There have been a few people that got caught for drugs and alcohol. This school is not tolerant of drug and alcohol usage. There are a few cases where they gave warnings but after the second time, you're outta here. Everyone really tries to uplift one another and there's a lot of great role models here on campus.

5 College Junior

Overall Experience: Love Love Love – This school is absolutely amazing. The professors are wonderful. The campus is beautiful. The food is delicious ( be careful for the freshman 15). Everyone is really focused of God and spreading His love. The mission trips are AMAZING. This school truly is a blessing.

3 College Junior

Administration: Not Fair – CBU's dress policy is really enforced among girls, but the guys don't get in trouble for anything. They can wear speedos at the pool and the girls have to be in one pieces. They walk around campus with their shirts off but if the girls have holes in their jeans or a slight bra strap is showing we get dress coded.Unfair!
