"The community is like no other, I just finished my first year at Biola University and I can tell you that life will never be the same after being there. I've loved every minute of my attendance and promise that to any newcomer that is considering Biola as a place that they want to further their education. The campus is on the smaller side but that just encourages the intimacy between friendships. The professors are very student oriented, they love what they are doing and are passionate about their students' education. The diversity is impeccable. There are students from so many different countries, there are clubs and events dedicated towards making them feel at home. Biola has an excellent Campus Safety program designed to keep its students safe even while walking around at night. There has not been one moment that I have felt violated or unsafe on this campus. Overall I love this place and wish with every bone in my body that I will be able to return for my second year!"
"I attended Biola all four years and loved it! Biola has the friendliest environment and staff. The professors at Biola really care about their students and will make time outside of class to meet with them and help them. The course work is just as hard as any other university, in my opinion. The grading is fair. Biola is a medium sized campus and not over-populated. I was a psychology major and loved their program. It was rigorous but I learned so much and genuinely enjoyed my classes. Most Biola students are Christian and very kind and considerate. Students aren't overly competitive academically and are willing to help each other. The only down side about Biola is that it is very expensive since it's a private university, but I would say that it is worth the money considering the good education, community, and influence you get here."
