3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: a few of my friends like it

1 College Sophomore

Party Scene: very hard to find or hear about.

5 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: Off-Campus dining is better than on campus

3 College Sophomore

Administration: a little too strict with things

4 College Sophomore

Scholarships: took a bit of work on my end, but went well.

2 College Sophomore

Campus Food: too expensive for tiny portions and not too good.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: could use work, but good.

College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: Honestly, dorming is expensive, but it is what it is.

College Freshman

Party Scene: I don't know because I'm not involved in that type of scenery.

College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: It can be pretty pricey since we're located in the Napa Valley but everything is based on personal preferences.

3 College Freshman

Administration: The school's rule are straight forward and easy to abide with.

3 College Freshman

Scholarships: I just wish they gave out more grants to students who need it.

3 College Freshman

Campus Food: It honestly depends on your personal preferences.

College Junior

Off-Campus Housing: I don't know much about the off campus housing. It's usually for adults over the age of 24, or married couples, people with families, etc.

Off-Campus Dining: Lots of food places, if you don't mind a timely drive/carpool. Make a date out of it. Or even a road trip if you don't mind the drive to San Francisco. St. Helena is the cutest spot for cool cuisines. Napa has the fast food joints and the more commercial restaurants. Santa Rosa is the closest thing you'll find to that "big" city vibe, so that is where you'll find more diverse places to dine.

Party Scene: Srsly, "what parties?!" This is an Adventist college. In the middle of nowhere California. And good luck finding anyone on this campus that isn't a complete stick in the mud. No one lets loose like that.

1 College Junior

Administration: They treat you like a child: curfews... 11 o clock check ins every night, it's ridiculous. And when I say check ins, I mean the RAs open your door with their annoying master key, and look in your room to make sure you're there, so they can sign you into their attendance system app thing. And if you're not, THEY COME BACK - at 3am! - with a flashlight. Also you get pinks (referalls) when you break curfew. No staying out all night until you're over 21, no boys in girls dorms, no girls in boys dorms except in the lobbies (and the opposite sex gets kicked out at 12).

4 College Junior

Scholarships: The financial aid process was pretty smooth. The school gives out scholarships, but considering the cost of tuition, they might as well not be giving you anything (it's honestly not even worth it).

3 College Junior

Campus Food: The Dining Commons and The Grind LOOK awesome. They are awesome to sit down in and snack. They have some good snacks too, however most are health foods or vegan products. Not a lot of variety when it comes to eating styles and cultures. The pizza and the pastas are usually the best thing at the Dining Commons. STAY AWAY FROM THE "HOT DOGS" AND THE "BURGERS". Pretty much just stay away from all the atrocious meat parodies they think is okay to serve.

Campus Housing: The campus is beautiful. You wake up the birds chirping, and a fresh feeling in the air. The social life on campus is laid back and chill. The people are friendly and genuine. However, since the campus is on a hill, being without a car makes it a challenge to leave and go anywhere remotely populated/commercial.

Off-Campus Housing: There aren't a lot of options for off-campus housing. Most of them are reserved for married students or upper classmen.

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: The restaurants in St. Helena are great! Most of them are pricey because of the area, but the food has always been delicious! I don't know if any of them have student discounts, they don't advertise that.

4 College Freshman

Administration: I have never had any issues with the strictness of campus. The rules are there for good reasons and they make sense.

3 College Freshman

Party Scene: We do more social events than parties. I'm not big in partying so it doesn't make a difference to me.

4 College Freshman

Scholarships: I was able to receive around 12,000 dollars in scholarships directly from the school. That was great, because tuition is high. I still have to search for other financial aid though, because it's not enough to fully cover and I don't want to be a burden on my parents.
