M******e from Escondido, CA

It's a great university! Beautiful campus and spaces nearby when you want to get off campus. It costs a lot, but you benefit from it from wonderful staff, free hammocking spots from SGA, and quality food compared to most cafeterias (though doesn't compare to mom's home cooking!). Every staff on campus from the professors, financial aid, or cleaning works are Christian and really encourage and grow your relationship with Christ. Academically, it is challenging, but not unbearable. So many people are able to both enjoy life and friends and study hard to be prepared for future jobs. Highly recommend!
