Good if you are cool with close-minded legalism, insufferable food and dorms, intense judgement, and cool fountains.

The school is academically okay.
The hardest drug here is coffee.
Promotes lower-right wing politics, but in reality enacts upper right policies.
Lot's of plain white people, like we have 3 black people.
Longboarding and surfing exist.
Lot's of plants.
In the city.
The rules are total garbage.

If you're thinking 'every private Christian college isQuite BrightDesign Arts - Industrial Design/Graphic Design/etc
If you're thinking 'every private Christian college is the same as any other private Christian college', you're wrong. This one is much worse. Don't even bother considering this place. The non-professor faculty has taken a huge downwards spiral this year. Need to get something done in a timely manner? Good luck. There are a dozen different departments (campus parking, student accounts, ect) and they're all absolutely terrible. Highly unprofessional school that would rather save money than hire people who actually know what they're doing. As for the actual learning experience - you're not going to be getting much more than a paper with your name on it. The art department is horribly underfunded with only about four teachers who are all as incompetent as each other. Worst decision I've made, but at this point it's too much effort to transfer.

The college setting is beautiful, but dorm roomsBrightPublic Health
The college setting is beautiful, but dorm rooms and many class rooms are not kept up very well. The women's soccer team is not successful due to the coaches arrogance and non-Christian values. He doesn't hold the women accountable even to his own rules, plays favorites, and loves to belittle the women individually and collectively ... he presents a great program but when you get into season he becomes a different person. Several women have quit the team or are transferring at the end of this year (2015-2016). He claims to be a Christian but not one I would recognize based on faith. The previous coach was too soft and easy, but the new coach says he holds girls accountable but not his favorites.
