    Every single professor takes a personal interest in your learning. That drives me to succeed. I love that we start most of my classes with prayer, dedicating our search for truth to God. God has truly used Biola to change my life. The only downside for me is that I never really got involved in dorm life so I feel a little out of the loop. But if you do get involved and invest in your dorm, it is totally worth it.

    I love this school! I'm from Canada so I'm far away from home, but this really does feel like home. The all-Christian community makes it feel like family.

    Dorm life here is amazing! Plus there are a lot of activities that happen on campus, and encourage involvement. La Mirada is also considered one of the safest cities, so you do not have to worry too much about your safety.

    I love being at Biola everyday. The people are so kind, the teachers care a ton, and the campus is beautiful. I personally play a sport and I really recommend either getting involved in a sport at Biola or trying to get involved in clubs or such to get to know people because everyone is just so great!
