PLNU's laid-back yet studious environment provided a means for me to find tranquility and excitement when I needed it. There are many ways for students to get involved in activities, clubs, and events. There are even commuter/transfer student events for those students to bond and integrate into campus life. As a Spanish major, I am loving the professors in my department because they are witty and have great senses of humor, but more importantly they are personable and professional. I have found that to be true for most of my professors, which creates a more trusting and honest learning environment. PLNU has been a resource bank for me to learn tremendous new ideas and subsequently inspire positive change within me. Yes, the parking is very limited and Chapel requirements still exist, but honestly it could be much, much worse. I think I've benefitted from attending here and I look forward to my final year!

My experience at Point Loma has been nothing short of excellent. Of course, my first year was a hard adjustment to make, but I cannot imagine having to adjust to living away from home without family, childhood friends, and my church, without the love, help, support, and energy from my friends and classmates at Point Loma. From professors who have done everything they can to help me succeed to friends who have adventured all over San Diego with me to Upper Class-men who have met with me to talk about my spiritual growth, I have experienced an abundant amount of social, spiritual growth. I am so excited to go back and be involved in ASB and Student Ministries while studying and finding a job in San Diego!

I honestly have not attended many of the athletic possibilities on our campus. I know many people who have played sports for Point Loma and they have absolutely loved it! I want to start attending soccer matches, volleyball matches, and baseball games soon. Being a smaller campus, it seems that mostly everybody is intrigued by sporting and is involved.
