3 College Freshman

Health & Safety: I have never heard of any campus crime. On campus many times you can just leave your stuff on a table and it will always be there when you return. I have never felt unsafe on campus and there are always pub-safe cars patrolling. During the day Loma is an open campus but after 11 the people at the front gate start asking the people who enter why they are there.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: The school makes accessing professionals in your degree field fairly easy as well as making sure students know about internship opportunities. There are many events hosted for each degree program where alumni come and talk about their experiences and we are able to network. Point Loma graduates are well equipped to enter their field of work and employers in the community seem to like hiring point loma students

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: The courses and professors are top-notch, they are difficult but you now you're getting a great education for the money you're spending. The professors are understandable and focus on teaching the students how to learn effectively instead of just memorizing what they're teaching. The professors also make themselves very available to help students outside of class time and want to get to know the students. The small class sizes make it easy to learn and interact with the professors. Since it is a small school there aren't a ton of classes offered but they have what students need for each degree program.

Campus Housing: Hendricks is an awesome dorm to stay in as a freshman because it is close to the cliffs and the ocean and it is also in walking distance of the classrooms. The rooms are an average size for a dorm room and can be pretty spacious depending on how you organize it. The social atmosphere is great, the RA's really make a point of having hall events or just nights were everyone can hangout and get to know each other so by the end of the year the people you live by are some of your best friends.

Athletics: The student section at sports events isn't usually very big. Although the teams are good, no one really attends the games. Sometimes they will have free food or even close the cafeteria and only have dinner available at the game in order to get students to go.

Overall Experience: Starting college can be somewhat scary and like an emotional rollercoaster. Although I have never attended any other college, I am confident in saying that Point Loma was probably the best choice I could've made. The professors are experts In their fields, want to help/see students succeed, and always willing to meet and talk about the course or life in general. The location is spectacular; being so close to the beach and located in the amazing city of San Diego there is always something to do within walking distance. I would say that the community at Point Loma is what makes it so unique. It is a Christian university, and before going there I didn't really know what that meant in terms of community. There is a huge focus on dorm life and making sure students have opportunities to meet each other and genuinely get to know each other. There are tons of opportunities to get involved with ministry and volunteering, as well as many events put on by the school each semester to help students get out of study mode for a little bit and have some fun. Although some might say that the "Loma Bubble" is what we all live in, and to some extent that is true, but its an awesome bubble to live in and the relationships that going to this school allows one to form are lifelong.

Health & Safety: I have never had a problem or even heard of a problem. We just installed those blue towers so I guess it is great.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Professors make this school great! They are always willing to help student's succeed!

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: OSV always has internship and job career opportunities. I get emails all of the time.

5 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: I love the housing! Great views and it has huge rooms! I love the housing no matter where my dorm has been. The only complaint would have to be no A/C option.

1 College Sophomore

Greek Life: We have no Greek life and I wish that we did. We kind of miss out on that because we are in a Christian school. I think it would be good and the housing would help the housing availability on campus.

2 College Sophomore

Athletics: Not many people go watch, but I have some friends that participate. I wish we had a larger gym and had more open hours for the athletes.

4 College Senior

Health & Safety: It is really safe compared to other schools. We are in a nice neighborhood and have public safety constantly patrolling and there are various cameras hidden throughout campus. One of the biggest problems is theft of small objects which most can be prevented by actually keeping an eye on your stuff. The other was bikes being stolen but as far as i am aware they have significantly decreased.

4 College Senior

Overall Experience: Quality comes down to if you actually pay attention to what the professors say. They have a lot of insight and are willing to work with you. Classes are pretty small which is great cause the teacher tends to know your name and how you are doing in the class. Each professor has a different style of teaching and once you find which one works best you can easily find that professor in other courses.

4 College Senior

Overall Experience: Network 9 events are great to meet professionals who are there to help alumni find jobs and internships. OSV works hard to help those who come into the office for help. They are an amazing source and will help you find an internship. Many camps facilities, churches, and such come onto campus quite often to talk about various positions that are available.

3 College Senior

Campus Housing: Dorms are small, but most are. Washer and dryers are easily accessible.

3 College Senior

Athletics: There is a lot of school spirit when it comes down to homecoming games and some championships, aside from that most games don't have many people show up (at least 50-100)

4 College Senior

Overall Experience: It is a very small campus which allows you to get to know your professors on a more personal level and many will go out of their way to help you succeed and even find work.

3 College Freshman

Drug Safety: There are some people who smoke or drink but it is usually kept quiet
