I expected so much more from a private university.

It's basically like being in a private christian high school.

The students are immature and self absorbed.

The classes are easy and the teachers give tons of grace, yet there are still students complaining about getting bad grades.

Also, on the weekends there is nothing to do if you don't have a car.

I lived on campus and it sucked… If I commuted to school I would have probably stayed.

Overall, if you just want to serve God, then this school is for you.

commentI think that this is a bad school too. It's like going to high school all over again. This school prides itself on being one of the best bible schools, but that's nothing special because there are just a handful of bible schools, so there's nothing to compete with. This school would be good for those who can't get into a tier 1 or tier 2 school. Which reminds me. Biola sure wants a lot of money for not even making the tier 2 list.
commentHow anyone can get bad grades at an easy school like Biola is beyond me. I agree with the above assessments that Biola is just like high school. The good schools in America make Biola look like nursery school.
commentIt makes no difference whether you lived on campus or commuted, you still would not have been happy at this school because it's nothing more than the equivalent of a junior college or religious high school.
I went to Biola. It was the biggest mistake I made in my life.
