    I recommend trying everything that our great campus has to offer. Even if you are shy like me, it is really worth it to attend a lot of events (provided you have the time, homework comes first). I met a lot of my great friends from events that my department held ( such as the beginning of year picnic) and by trying new clubs that I had a relative interest in. Don't expect to find your best friends on the first day here, it is really worth it to wait and try to surround yourself with friends that share the same core values as you. Be open to other people's diverse views and experiances but never vaiver on your core values or compromise who you are as a person. If you have to change who you are in order to be friends with someone their friendship is not worth it. However it will be very hard to find anyone who is mean on this campus, almost everyone I have had the pleasure to meet was kind and respectful. I love the God oriented lifestyle on the campus and it truly radiates down to the students and faculty.

    This school is expensive but worth it! Know what you are getting into; chapel is required and there are some rules that other schools have, but there are always awesome events going on. The professors are impeccable!

    Even though the school is a bit pricey, don't let the price tag scare you away too quickly. The PLNU experience is life-changing and 100% worth any student loans you might need to take out, in my opinion.
