Originally founded by the American Baptist Convention, the University of Redlands is an independent 4-year private institution in inland southern California. Redlands confers bachelor’s degrees in over 40 academic programs of study. Additionally, the U of R campus is home to the Center for Spatial Studies as well as the Center for Business GIS and Spatial Analysis dedicated to studying Geographic Information System technologies. The university’s trademark is a 415 foot letter R outlined in the surrounding San Bernardino Mountains.
The University of Redlands has a beautiful campus, a medium-sized tight-knit community of students and faculty, and is both great in Academics and Arts. All of the classes are within walking distance from any of the dorms. The food, however, is overrated.

Due to its small population, Redlands has smaller classes, and therefore the teacher knows every student by name and is able to help them individually with office hours and no-cost tutoring. The school is very liberal, accepting and inclusive, with plenty of opportunities for minorities to express themselves without fear of discrimination. There are many opportunities for living on campus and off campus, and the community director and assistants at the residence halls are friendly, helpful and kind.
