Degree: Biblical Studies
Graduation Year: 2013

Aside from it's scenic beauty, Point Loma offers students a fantastic academic experience in a tight knit community. In my four years, I made quality friends and mentors who have greatly impacted how I see and think about the world. I recall sitting in the cafe on a weekly basis with Dr. Smith, my New testament professor, and asking him questions about life, playing dorm room pranks on fellow class mates, and sitting at sunset cliffs taking in the beauty of the sunset over the ocean. One of the really great things about Point Loma is it is easy to get to know your professors. Most classes are not more then 30 students which makes for a great learning environment. I'm fortunate to have forged some quality relationships with teachers who to this day I still talk to. Geographically, Loma is situated in a small safe neighborhood and boasts some of the best views in California being the closest university to the beach. Being in San Diego is a great perk as well considering the great weather and variety of activities available. San Diego has something for everyone whether you're surfing at Mission Beach, taking in a Padres Game, or enjoying the Gas Lamp District down town. Point Loma is a school that prioritizes green initiatives, social justice, and quality education and for those reasons I highly recommend it to anyone looking for a phenomenal undergraduate that will not only shape you academically but also emotionally, culturally, and spiritually.

Degree: Psychology
Graduation Year: 2015

As a mid year transfer student coming into my junior year at Point Loma Nazarene University, I found the transition to be difficult as there wasn't an already established and concrete way of me to get to know others in my class. As I began taking more classes within my psychology degree, I found a connection with students who enjoyed the same subject that I did. This helped to create an atmosphere that pushed me to want to continue my education at PLNU.

Degree: Romance Languages, Literatures, and Linguistics, General
Graduation Year: 2013

The Literatures, Journalism, and Modern Languages Department was excellent and enriching. All of the classes were small which allowed for thought provoking discussions. The professors were phenomenal and truly cared for the students. They all had a strong passion for their area of study and they transmitted it to the students in the ways they taught the courses. The best part of my experience was the Study Abroad program in London hosted by the LJML department and directed by Dr. Winderl. I have studied abroad on different occasions and by far the London program has been the best organized and most enriching program.

Degree: Computer Science
Graduation Year: 2007

Small and dedicated university that has great professors and staff. The location obviously is on a beach/cliff side and an amazing view, which doesn't get old and is always refreshing. The campus is great the students and staff are very nice and work very collaboratively so you're not left alone to fend for yourself. However, coming in keep note of your first 2 years as vital, keep up the good work and keep your eye out for challenges and solutions. Also keep in mind the professors are there to help you and don't be shy. Good luck and look forward to a great experience.

Degree: Liberal Studies
Graduation Year: 2004

The type of experience you have in college is completely up to you. Even at a Christian college, one must choose friends wisely--choose friends who value you for you, who care for you enough to help you grow into a better person, who encourage and motivate you to succeed. The value you receive from the school is also up to you. The professors at PLNU are gold. Not only are they academically invigorating, but they care for their students, and provide a wealth of knowledge and wisdom if you seek it out. The number one advice I give students during informational interviews is to tap into this hidden resource: professors. They will drive you to go further than you would go alone.
