What Students Are Saying

3.92 Average Rating
la sierra university is a small school where a person can't walk five paces without saying hi to someone they know. on-campus activities are always fun and a great chance to meet new people, and classes are relatively small and personable. the education given here, while not at the level of stanford or harvard, is still challenging and extremely enjoyable.
Molly from Pomona, CA
LSU is one of the most ethnically-diverse schools in the United States, and is one of the most liberal Seventh-Day Adventist University worldwide. You will find students and faculty representing almost every nation and language, along with a female as the head pastor of the corresponding church. Classes are educational and the professors are kind and resourceful.
