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.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Food: Although the menu is pretty consisten throughout the whole year, they mainly serve local and organic food which I love. As a result, the majority of the students on campus are of normal stature or fit.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: There are many dormitories that are available on campus. Some are themed dormitories, in which if a student favors certain conditions, he or she may be eligible and may live in the dorm of their choice. While the older dormitories do not have air conditioning, the majority have air conditioning. Some newer dormitories are hotel suite style and are very neat.

5 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: there are tons of yummy resaurants near campus!!!!

4 College Sophomore

Scholarships: 90% of students receive some form of financial aid

4 College Sophomore

Party Scene: Its a great time, you know someone everywhere you go

4 College Sophomore

Campus Food: It is very good, fresh, local and superior to most other schools

5 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: The University of Redlands has a wide variety of housing options from suite style to hall bathrooms and from singles to quadruples.

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: Many of the places downtown/nearby are cute and locally owned, so most are delicious and college student oriented.

3 College Freshman

Administration: obviously the officers are there to keep students safe and I respect them, but they can be very rude at times.

4 College Freshman

Scholarships: They give a lot of money overall, I had great scholarship deals.

2 College Freshman

Party Scene: Due to the new party policy many options have been secluded to those selectively in sororities/fraternities/groups, but still available to others every once in a while.

3 College Freshman

Campus Food: The food overall is well thought out and they try giving as many options as possible, though it is obviously made in bulk and sometimes over/under cooked.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: I live in a dorm without air conditioning which is an issue during the super hot and chilly weeks, but not the end of the world. Depending on the room they can be very spacious or average sized, still comfortable (I live in a triple).

4 College Junior

Off-Campus Dining: Fantastic food options, sometimes a bit pricey.

5 College Junior

Administration: The administration does what it can! Bureaucracy is hard sometimes, but it feels necessary.

4 College Junior

Scholarships: Apply, apply, apply! Apply as soon as you're even thinking about it! Also, memorize your social security number right away. You'll be typing it a lot.

4 College Junior

Campus Food: It's delicious, but not worth the 9 dollars that it rounds out to being priced.

4 College Junior

Campus Housing: One downside is that certain fast food restaurants won't deliver to campus.

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.
