California Baptist University Reviews
Student & Graduate Reviews (6)
Personally, I feel like choosing to attend CBU was the worst mistake of my life. The financial aid department is not helpful in the least and you can never get in contact with your advisors. It is way too expensive for the quality of the education. The bible courses primarily use study bibles. They pride themselves as being a Christian based school, but they don't even use the Bible. Many people enjoy their experience at CBU, but I am not and I am going to transfer. Maybe life on campus is better, but I would never recommend this university.
The CBU Online program was very hands on, and the professors really seemed to care about me as a student, and were supportive and helpful throughout my education. I loved that the schedule was flexible enough for me to still have a job while I attended.
I really love the atmoshere of the school. The professors are always willing to help. Students are also very friendly and the campus is not too big and you can find classes pretty easy.
CBU is a great school, it will keep the students accountable and will help them grow in there career paths. I attended the Hybrid courses. I transferred in from University of Phoenix where I lacked accountability. The only issue I have with the school is the Financial Aid department, there are not very helpful and not very informative when it comes to Financial aid. I found out just 30 credit shy of graduation that I would not have the aid to complete my degree.
For English, I had so much support. I had quality instructors, and only one bad, and a support staff that was so excellent, that I will miss them when I graduate. For Film, I will rate every single experience I had as excellent. There is so much I thought that I knew that I did not know that I was taught by some really great people. I want to be friends with most of my professors, and I hope they feel the same way.
CBU is a great option for those to dont only want to grow academically but spiritually and socially as well! California Baptist University has a wonderful staff who are all committed to promoting each and every student to excellency! The teachers get personal with their students without being overbearing or nosy but they display genuine concern.
You will never be bored at CBU because they have events going on nearly every week to keep students social and always meeting new people! Also, they foster spiritual growth in many ways including the Christian Challenge program as well as 30 for 30 events and much more. California Baptist University is also home of USP, ISP, and SOS trips which are mission trips in various places in the US or even out of the country! Everyone at Cal Baptist is friendly; staff and students alike. The food of this school is also amazing!!!!
They also offer 3 different dining places on campus as well as many local hotspots surrounding the campus. The location of the school is prime because it is central to all your necessities as well as extremities! The population of the school is nice but not overwhelming. Overall this school is the best!
