Biola University has the NOISIEST college library thatReligion/Religious
Biola University has the NOISIEST college library that I have ever been to!!! The administrators at Biola University may pretend that Biola is all about Christian love, mercy and grace.... Do not be fooled.... Biola University is a fundamentalist school where Christian love and mercy are noticeably absent. In terms of campus culture, atmosphere and environment....Biola University is similar to an Independent Fundamental Baptist college like Bob Jones University....

Great school.BrightKinesiology
Great school. Great professors. Great school events. Great bible classes. Variety of majors. Small class sizes. Very expensive but the experience is worth it. Love the mandatory conferences and chapel, it allows you to grow as an individual not only intellectual. Love my choice in attending. Don't want to leave!

Biola is a terrific school for a lotQuite BrightOther
Biola is a terrific school for a lot of people. I really enjoyed my time there and met a lot of great friends. It developed my spirituality and I learned a lot about Biblical things. Unfortunately, my long term plan was lacking. Remember one thing. Name recognition. Biola is virtually unknown outside of southern CA or the west coast. Even religious organizations on the east coast have never heard of it and assume that it is some small Bible college. This is a huge problem if you head east and look for work. Now, I could have gone to a much better school and looking back, I probably should have. I struggled for 4 years since I graduated barely able to find work in my field or in Christian ministries. Now, I'm back in school, at law school in a T20 school, hopefully to turn my career around. If you know what you want to go into (like Missionary work, Christian ed, Ministry, or grad studies elsewhere) and you know you want to stay where Biola is recognized, go ahead. Otherwise, seek elsewhere. My new advice for all students looking at colleges is, in this economy, go to the best school you can. Biola was not that the best school I could have gotten into and I have had to deal with the ramifications of that for quite some time.
