The best thing about this school is how much you feel like a family when you are there.
The worst thing about this school is that sometimes because people live close to the school they go home during the weekends
The relationships made and emphasis on Biblical teaching.
The location of the campus - I certainly would have liked to have a great view of the Pacific Ocean.
Incredible community, great residence life (dorm and hall activities and trips), caring professors, spiritually challenging environment, Southern Ca location (near beach, mountains, city - anything...
expensive tuition ( but they do offer tons of scholorship opportunities which significantly reduce tuition)
Biola University received a grant for their Center of Christian Thought.
Another awesome thing is awesome chapel speakers, great campus life
Every student at this school needs it helps to have a car because there's so much to do off-campus in La and Orange County.
