1 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: Probably the worst part of our school. The selection process is difficult and frustrating; but worst of all it is VERY difficult to get approved for off-campus, even as a junior and senior. The cost of room and board is around $14,000 to eat the same poor quality food and share a small unmaintained room with another student. One week a student threw-up in the stairwell, and services didn't clean it for a week; best of all the whole got charged a fine for the cleaning of biohazard.

2 College Sophomore

Greek Life: As such a small school students fall dependent on defining themselves as part of a group and with only a couple of, non-nationally recognized, Greek chapters there exists a tense rivalry. But with limited space, many people are denied a bid to join, the fact that freshman standings cannot rush, and the selective social life of greek makes Redlands campus a very socially unaccepting environment.

2 College Sophomore

Athletics: As a division III school there is no financial incentive to play sports; furthermore there are no added benefits such as priority class scheduling, dorm selection or dining vouchers. So unless you absolutely love your sport, the mediocre athletic facilities are not enough to keep you involved and enthusiastic.

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: The small class sizes make it easy to engage in a one-on-one experience with each professor; however it's size has it's own downfalls. Difficult to interact with other students as they are often found leaving campus for entire weekends.

4 College Student

Overall Experience: Incredible teachers and great curricular standards.

4 College Sophomore

Academics: My main concern has been getting my degree I am one of the other students on campus so I really pay attention to any of the party animals and or younger students that seem to be just there to have fun.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: My current professors are very helpful willing to help whenever you need them and they always respond to their emails in a timely matter.

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.
