3 College Sophomore

Party Scene: If you're a party person, you won't be bored. There are parties during the weekend at a variety of locations. If you're not really into the whole party scene, you can easily avoid them and still have a lot of fun.

4 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: There are so many delicious places to eat off campus. There are a couple of Chinese food places, a deli, a few pizza places, a Jamba Juice, a burger place, the list goes on and on.

4 College Sophomore

Administration: The campus is not a dry campus, and the CAs are pretty average in their strictness toward underage drinking. The campus safety officers (PSafe) do a pretty good job of keeping the students safe, but they don't seem to be overly strict.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Food: The food in the Plaza is always delicious and fairly cheap. U Club food is amazing, but very expensive and the hours are very limited. When it comes to the Commons, however, the food is very hit and miss. Sometimes it's delicious and other times it's awful.

4 College Sophomore

Scholarships: Because of my GPA and class standing, I received quite a few scholarships and grants. The financial aid process went smoothly and it was very easy to see what I got and why.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: The dorms are all very nice, and most are located around the central quad. Everything is walking distance from the dorms. The library, the classes, the cafeteria. Plus, living on campus means you get to know so many people!

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: The process to get off campus can be a bit difficult, but it's worth it for the amount of money you'll save from dorming on campus.

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: Downtown Redlands offers a variety of food that range in prices so you can switch it up every time.

3 College Freshman

Administration: There were definitely a lot of times people were caught drinking underage from their own stupidity, but the enforcement is pretty average.

3 College Freshman

Scholarships: I got a good amount from the school overall

3 College Freshman

Campus Food: The meals can taste kind of bland and since they don't change the menu up often, it begins to get repetitive, but overall okay

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Living on campus in a dorm gave me a sense of independence as I was allowed to really do what I wanted. I also met a majority of friends because the community of people is so welcoming and it's nice to know there are always people around to keep you company.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: some do not have air condition or heating which is a big bummer

3 College Freshman

Greek Life: the people are nice and friendly

3 College Freshman

Party Scene: Its fun, but can be dangerous because frat row was closed for awhile which led students to walking off campus to go to parties. these walks can be anywhere from 5-25 minutes, which is dangerous if you're intoxicated.

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: i love chipotle and bakers

2 College Freshman

Scholarships: I got financial aid but what good does it do when they raise the tuition every year.. ACCOMODATE

4 College Freshman

Campus Food: I personally enjoyed all the options we had even though a lot of people complain about it. I do wish that the money on our debit dollars moved on to the next year.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: I wish we could have more opinion in our selection of our freshmen year roomate. I feel like the just stuck random people together and hoped it would work out.

4 College Junior

Party Scene: Sometimes they can get a bit out of hand, but usually our Public Safety takes care of the emergencies or important situations. A party policy was put in place, so parties have to be regulated more, but it's definitely bettering the safety of the students.

3 College Junior

Scholarships: It takes a very long time for financial aid to process, and it's difficult to try and take out loans or make payment plans, since the school only accepts very few programs and loans.

3 College Junior

Campus Food: For the mean plan you have to choose, you end up buying so many expensive meals, and none of theme are of good quality. The red meats are so under cooked, the lines are always so long for food, they are rarely in stock of food when you get to the front of the line, and make you overpay for brand name food.

3 College Junior

Campus Housing: Depending on the dorms you stay in, your experience could be great. The older dorm buildings do not have air conditioning and usually end up being very messy and smelly. The newer ones have AC and heat control, good bathrooms, and a good environment for living.

4 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: Over the past few years, hardly any criminal activities have occurred on campus. While in the beginning I was skeptical whether to leave my personal belongings in the library to go to the bathroom or to get a drink from the cafe, I have seen the items are hardly ever stolen and the students are respectful of each other.

3 College Sophomore

Party Scene: Depending on the time of the year, there are frequent or less amount of parties. While it is fun to be liberal and such, it is good that the Public Safety officers keep their watch on some of the students and their behaviors.

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.
