What Students Are Saying

3.96 Average Rating
Attending the University of Redlands was the best choice I could have ever made. Here, I can pursue all my interests, build a community of friends, and dare to be different. That Good Ol' U of R is the absolute best and I could not be more happy and appreciative to be here.
Ashley from Redlands, CA
The University of Redlands offers class sizes that are small and allow you to a have a great learning experience with the Professors. The Professors on campus truly are some of the best because of their enthusiasm, love for what they do, and they help students achieve nothing less than their best. The campus is a very welcoming environment and the town surrounding the campus is wonderful.
Zachary from Lake Arrowhead, CA
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.
Emily from Ojai, CA
This University is fun, Environmentally conscious, and full of a diverse amount of people. If you are looking for a school that balances a liberal, experiential education with the traditional classroom and book scenario, then this is the school for you. Be sure to bring plenty of shorts, because it gets -hot- here!
Holly from Jonesville, MI
The University of Redlands is one of the best decisions of my life because it is full of the friendliest, most dedicated and most amazing people I've ever met. My professors know who I am and actually care about me. The groups on campus will be the people I will keep in touch with forever.
