What Students Are Saying

3.92 Average Rating
If you can afford it it's a great school.
Nikki from Perris, CA
For those who will mostly likely attend, this sounds like a great environment to learn and create new friends in. I am going to attend this school once I get the money to go, so from my experience of visiting, I know this will be a stress-free place to go and a great learning experience.
SARA from Riverside, CA
Strong religious atmosphere with requred chapels so if you don't like that it might not be the place for you. Also there are no soroities or fraternities or greek life.

If you are a commuter make sure you join clubs to meet people and stay connected with the campus. Same goes for dorming students. There are a lot of opportunities so don't be shy!
Elizabeth
Always remember to turn in your work online.
Late work really hurts your grade.
Do not skip classes they are very important.
Kelian from Colton, CA
Make sure your math scores on the standardized tests are at college level. If not the school places you in remedial courses that don't count toward your degree and sometimes are difficult for students who have taken advanced courses and have forgotten the basics.
Jarrel from Prospect, TN
If you take Biology, make sure you READ the chapter along with studying the lecture slides or you will surely fail.
Vontavia from Compton, CA
At this school you will learn to go beyond your limits. You will receive a great education integrated with Christian faith. This school is not here to forcefully convert you but instead it is here to share the love that God has for you. The different departments offer extra help if you need it. The professors will always be willing to help answer any questions that you may have. There are various school activities that you can get involved in as well as school clubs that you can be a part of. La Sierra University is known for having an extraordinary School of Business, as a Business student I can say that they have amazing opportunities for you to achieve your goals. This school is great and I am sure you will love it.
