Most students have pre-med or pre-dent delusions - La Sierra is a major feeder school, if not THE feeder school for Loma Linda University. The biggest departments are Business, Biology, Chemistry, and Religion … the other departments seem to be small shoestring departments.

The dorms have the usual Adventist rules, which will seem like crazy freedom for most cloistered Adventist academy kids: staying out until 2 am! wearing shirts that show your shoulder blades! It'll seem suffocating for those not used to the system though, as the school attempts to micromanage the students' lives: be vegetarian! no alcohol, not even in your personal fridge! etc etc.

The dorms are quite old. The boys' dorm is like any other normal dorm. In the girls' dorm, however, you can't have microwaves or toasters because the electrical wiring is THAT old. You can, however, have fridges… but the electricity supply is probably capable of being blown out by several strong hairdryers.

Students are generally very friendly, and open. Hugs are big on this campus. It's a nice place, if you're prepared for it.
