If you are aSuper Brilliant
If you are a guy and they think you broke a title 9 rule, your rights will not exist. Make sure you take a lawyer to ALL meeting with the school. Do not send your son here.

Honestly, people are very fake at this school.Super BrilliantDesign Arts - Industrial Design/Graphic Design/etc
Honestly, people are very fake at this school. The students are snobs. They act like high school students and quite frankly it's a giant popularity contest. You have to look and dress a certain way and have a trust fund or else you are basically cast aside. The Art Department is mediocre. If you are a brilliant traditional artist don't bother attending PLNU. They promote trash art and they call it contemporary art. There are a few quality staff in the department but most of them awe self absorbed. PLNU is also full of radical Evangelical fools and zealots.

Great private small school.Quite BrightBusiness - Management and Administration
Great private small school. Administration, not so great. The school nickels and dimes you for everything including obscene fines, and parking violations. It seems as if they look for every chance to penalize you and make additional money in addition to the $40k a year for tuition. With regards to academics, I really enjoy the small class sizes. Teachers are readily available for any further explanation or help. Classes fill up fast however during registration, so you better have a backup plan if you can't get into all of the classes you want. If you plan on transferring to this school, beware that a lot of your credits will not transfer. This is my second year taking summer school classes just so I can be sure to graduate on time. What else.. if you are looking to party, its not impossible to find one. They are just off campus of course. Many people may wonder about the Christian aspect of PLNU. I enjoy being in an environment full of people who care about others. This school however can feel cliquey at times, and it is best to find a group of friends to call your own. Sometimes I wish I went to a larger university where I could meet more people on a daily basis. However, I love the location of this campus. I mean what beats living in southern California with 360 degree ocean views? I have mixed thoughts, but in all I love Loma.
