SPU is a great school if you're a serious, devout Christian. The faith aspect was too overwhelming and suffocating for me, so I left. The campus is small, but pretty and well-maintained. Lots of hills, you'll get a work out just walking to class. Most (95%) of classes will incorporate some aspect of Christianity. How interesting/engaging class is will depend entirely on the professor, but most of the ones I had were excellent (there are good and bad professors at every school, definitely ask around or use rate my professors). On-campus social life can be a little dull, there are various events, but nothing too big or exciting. That's not really an issue though, since the school is in the middle of a city that offers countless things to do/places to explore (if you don't have a car, biking is popular, and there are free bus passes). The student body is sheltered, and a little out of touch with reality. It seems that they only believe in God because it was what got spoon-fed to them in their upper middle class, conservative, Christian homes. Racial diversity is growing, but still a little scarce. People can be cliquey, much like high school, but they are still friendly and approachable. If you're considering the school, definitely visit and see if it's a comfortable environment for you. For most average college students, it will not be. But if you're a conservative (and maybe naive) Christian, go for it…it will be a supportive environment for you.
