4 College Junior

Overall Experience: I love how small my school is just because I am able to get to know a majority of the people on campus. I love that it is a small community of people who are dedicated to spreading God's love. There are so many ways to get involved and to serve the community, which was probably one of the school's biggest draws to me. The fact that it is right on the beach and has the most amazing sunsets helps a little bit... There are some days when I wish that I had gone to a bigger school or at least one with a football team, but if I could go back and choose again I would make the same choice.

Overall Experience: Great school overall. The professors care about their student's education and even their personal lives. They want you to succeed in every way possible. Of course this school has its flaws but I could not see myself being happier anywhere else.

Overall Experience: 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!

Off-Campus Housing: It is hard to find an apartment or house willing to lease to college students, especially close to campus. Some have gotten lucky and find really nice and close homes. Rent is a little pricey, but so is living on campus.

4 College Junior

Party Scene: The party is just hanging with friends and enjoying eachother's company.

4 College Junior

Off-Campus Dining: San Diego offers many dining options with very tasty food. It is also known for its mexican food which is good and cheap, just not the healthiest. It is always fun to venture off campus and try new foods.

2 College Junior

Administration: Being a private school and Nazarene the school is very strict. It is a dry campus. There is required chapel attendences and many chances to obtain silly fines at the school.

3 College Junior

Scholarships: So far I have only recieved loans and federal work study which is hard because I do not have time to be making that much money with all my classes. I have recieved one scholarship from my department of study, but I need a lot more in order to keep attending school. It is stressful.

Campus Food: Options include the caf, Point Break Cafe, Breakers mini store, Jamba Juice, and Bobby B's. You can use your dollars at these places which is nice when you get tired of the caf or simply do not have time.

4 College Junior

Campus Housing: LIving on campus allows you to be more connected wit the community and save gas because you are close enough to walk to class. It is very convienient.

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: I haven't lived off campus or even looked for a place off campus. I've heard good things and bad things from people. For one, it is fairly simple to find housing close to campus but the cost is ridiculous. You have to have a lot of roommates in order to pay the rent. I'm not sure about the safety of off campus housing because the cheaper places tend to be in not-so-nice places.

4 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: There are lots of awesome off campus dining options. It's San Diego, after all. Most of the fancier, more expensive places to eat are about a 20 minute drive away. The closer dining options are convenient and cheap.

3 College Sophomore

Party Scene: PLNU is definitely not known for the parties. Many of the students don't party but there are those little groups who do. All of the parties are off campus at other students' houses/apartments. Partying has a positive impact on social life because you go out with the same people but it has a negative impact on academics.

4 College Sophomore

Administration: The school policies at PLNU are great in my opinion. I appreciate the no-smoking policy because it keeps our campus clean. If people want to smoke they can go off campus, which everyone does anyways. There aren't very strict policies that are too hard to live by.

4 College Sophomore

Scholarships: The financial aid process is simple and painless as long as you have everything ready to go and submit. I suggest applying for as many scholarships as you can because not many people apply for them at PLNU.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Food: The caf has its good days and its bad days. It's kind of hit and miss when eating in the caf. PBC isn't great but it's an alternative when the caf doesn't have any good food. I like eating off campus the most but hate spending money all the time so I settle with the caf.

5 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: Living on campus at PLNU is awesome. There is a big sense of community when living on campus. The dorms are close to everything since our campus is so small. The dorms are really clean and the school fixes up anything that needs to be fixed up. All of the dorms are equipped with kitchens so that is really nice for those who don't want to eat in the school caf. There is a nice opportunity to get to know other people on a deeper level when living in the dorms and that is my favorite part about living on campus.

Athletics: THERE'S NO FOOTBALL. It's sad to go to a college without football. There are a few people that really get into the sports, but not many. The gym and facilities are kind of old and need updated and expanded, in my opinion.

Off-Campus Dining: It's hard to get anywhere if you don't have a car, so that's number one problem. Other than that, there really aren't much options. At least there is Native Foods.

2 College Freshman

Administration: its really strict. Part of me wonders if they are hired to babysit us...

Scholarships: It sucks knowing that you owe money to someone. But Loma has been really understanding of certain financial needs. It could have gone smoother, but that might just be because I don't understand a lot of things.

Party Scene: The party scene, so far at least, has been very hidden. You know that kids do it, but they all leave campus and go to SDSU or another school. They don't happen on campus unless it's at a bonfire or something.

Campus Food: The food isn't bad at all, it's always cooked well and everything is clean and looks really nice! In fact, everything I've had has been very delicious. The problem is that I'm vegan and there aren't many options. I basically eat salad and rice everyday...

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: I really like living on campus and I think there are perks to living in each dorm. For example, Nease is close to everything, but Young is really close to the ocean and has a beautiful view. The campus is just beautiful! The only thing that stinks is the parking and not having a car as a freshman is hard because there's really nothing in Point Loma besides the ocean.
