4 College Sophomore

Drug Safety: I think that majority of the students in my campus do not do drugs. The people here have realized that there is more to life than that. Although, Adderall can make even the most straight edge person waver during finals week.

4 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: We have a great student body, so most events are not too bad. I have always felt safe here even at night walking to my dorm. I always can see the Public Safety officers driving around so I always know if something were to happen they would help.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: The academics at this school are state of the art, each and every one of the professors cares about their students and the small class sizes makes it easier for one on one to learn the curriculum. The variety of the courses is always interesting and sometimes someone can take a science class without having any experience in science whatsoever and still enjoy it and pass it.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: It is highly likely that one will leave this school with a job after four years. That is the whole truth about it. There is more than enough programs that allow you to access the working field and find the job of your dreams.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: The housing system here is very good in the sense that the rooms are clean, they are quite large and people can usually fit comfortably in them. However, the one downside is that the four largest dorms have no air conditioning. That makes it difficult with the housing for some of the students. Another issue that makes housing difficult is the inability to get off campus housing. However, despite all that the housing is great. All the buildings have washers and dryers along with kitchens. Most of the dorms are themed communities either for wellness, Social Justice, or Academics. It's a wonderful place to live where lasting friendships can be made.

4 College Sophomore

Greek Life: I personally am not in a fraternity at the moment. However, I am in the process of rushing. The Greek Life here at the University is very historic. It dates all the way to the beginning of the school. All of our chapters are purely local so they do no affiliate with any national or international organizations. Those that are involved in Greek Life seem to be the very happy with their decisions and most have said that it was their best college decision.

5 College Sophomore

Athletics: We have the some of the best athletics facilities in our division as a whole. We have the abiltiy to have everyone of our teams train, practice, and compete comfortably. Our school is only a D3 school, but D1 coaches have commented on our facilities being the best they've ever seen. We have many NCAA nation championships for almost all of our teams and our sports teams have been around since the early 1900's. The student sections at the games are always very enthusiastic during the competition. There is never a dull moment during an athletic event.

Overall Experience: I really enjoy the University of Redlands. It is a small school. The class sizes are only about 20 people at the max. The professors are very friendly and easy to get to during their office hours. I like the social aspect of the university as well because of the small student population it makes it easier to know people and build lasting relationships with them. The athletics program here is absolutely superb and one of my favourite parts about the school. I work with two of the teams and I love the work that I do.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: All of the professors I have had thus far have been incredible. A real working lawyer teaching Business Ethics and Law. The Marketing Director of CBU teaching Integrated Marketing. This insight to what is really happening in the world, and not just in the book has opened my eyes.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: UofR has a great reputation. So any degree from here holds its weight. Problems with finding a job arent because of this. It would be because degree inflation from employers if anything.

4 College Junior

Health & Safety: There is a student health center that offers flue vaccines for free. Students can pick up prescriptions from the health centre and the center offers sexual health advice and screenings as well as birth control options.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: Courses are interesting. Some professors just talk at you in lectures while others allow for students to engage in hearty discussions which are essential for learning. Classes are generally less than 30 students.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: Professors are helpful in directing students to new opportunities if the student reaches out for help. Most students land good jobs upon graduation.

3 College Junior

Campus Housing: The housing is fine, but it's really difficult to be approved to live off-campus.

4 College Junior

Greek Life: All of the organisations are close-knit communities and having functions together is fun. No one is judged if you are part of greek life or not.

3 College Junior

Athletics: The majority of students participate in sports, however some sports get more attention than others. Overall its a good atmosphere.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: I love the community on campus at Redlands. Students are friendly and professors really get to know you and help you in your future endeavours. The classes are challenging.

3 College Freshman

Health & Safety: I feel safe on my campus, but I never feel completely safe in an open and public area, even in general.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Professors are considerate and very nice, classroom environment is welcoming and accepting.

3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I really do like this school and it's environment. Sometimes it does get a little too small, but its not too small to a point where I am familiar with all of the faces. The campus is beautiful.

3 College Freshman

Health & Safety: The campus is overall pretty safe with it still being an open campus. There are shuttles that will take you anywhere on campus which is crucial in safety.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I really love attending the University of Redlands. It is a great small, private school with a fun community. I suggest getting involved in clubs and organizations to meet new people. The classes are excellent and the professors are easy to talk to or get help from. The class sizes are small (less than 35 students), which helps me learn.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: There are many career prospects as you attend the university because many of the professors know people in the field. In the business department, Target is a big company that looks for Redlands graduates for employees.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: The dorms are pretty old, but it's an old campus. I love the dorm communities i just wish they were a little nicer on the inside. Some need remodeled.

3 College Freshman

Greek Life: Greek life is a big social part of campus, but different here because you rush your sophomore year instead of your freshman year. This is helpful with the transition from high school to college. I think Greek life helps the community, but they also throw great parties.

Overall ExperienceWhat's this?

The University of Redlands is steeped in history, from the Victorian-style houses scattered throughout the town to the story of how students in 1926 saved the beloved hillside "R" from being removed by the U.S. Forest Service. Nestled 10 miles east of San Bernardino, Redlands, Calif., is surrounded by breathtaking mountains, with the Memorial Chapel acting like a beacon that draws visitors to the University. In fact, the campus is immersed in "green," with a sustainable garden that grows and sells fresh vegetables to the food management provider on campus. The Redlands community is often noted for its "big town with a small-town feel," and when it comes to University academics, this notion is also apparent, with small class sizes and an 11-to-1 student-teacher ratio. Professors definitely care about their students and see them as people instead of numbers, although some students wish they were a little more challenging with their curricula.

But sometimes being small can feel a little stifling for students. One of the University’s nicknames in regards to nightlife is "Dead-lands," as there are few nightclubs and bars in the area. Typically, the main form of nightlife on campus involves frats and sororities. Luckily, Los Angeles and San Diego are not too far away, so if it's the nightclub scene you're craving, there is sustenance. Speaking of nourishment, campus dining is rated well among students, especially with sustainable and vegetarian options; however, one thing students often vent about is how expensive campus dining can be. You have to be frugal on a week-to-week basis, which can be stressful. On most college campuses, parking is something that causes students anxiety, but at U of R, it's one of their biggest raves. Registration and permits are free, and spots are always relatively easy to find. However, in a beautiful area like Redlands, you'll probably enjoy looking for any excuse to walk.
