"My Graduate Program pros are that I have excellent Professors who give quality instruction and I have a lot of support from the faculty. I love the Campus it is clean, safe , and has computer access most of the time. The Cons would be that they don't have a Doctorate program and I wish the on campus professors would lecture online as well."

"A graduate program may be seen as a major goal or a stepping stone for those who want to continue with his or her education. The pros are endless including the opportunity to open an array of job qualifications. The cons of a graduate program is the intensity of which is at time difficult to maintain between life and work. I see my graduate program as a stepping stone which will allow me to someday obtain my ultimate goal of achieving a doctorate level degree."

"CalBaptist is full of friendly, supportive professors and staff who are also very intelligent--you're really stretched and encouraged to grow as a student and a person. The small class sizes encourage community and rapport between students and faculty alike, and that in turn provides good job and networking opportunities. However, some of the professors--by far the minority--don't seem to take their jobs as seriously as they could... But even that has a good side, since it causes students to rely on each other, building community and creating discourse. California Baptist is of course a Christian university, first and foremost, and most of the time this just creates a harmonious working and learning environment, however from time to time it seems too religiously focused, excluded other points of view. Financial aid is also not well supported--only loans/private financing are available to students, who must seek elsewhere for scholarships and grants, unlike in public universities or even most private ones."

"Because Cal Baptist is a Christian university, it may appear to lack diversity. After attending, it is obvious that the program and school is very diverse, offering great learning experiences from diverse backgrounds."

"I feel that the cons to my program is there is not enough hands on experience in regard to exercise science and exercise prescription. The cons is that CBU campus is a great environment if your focus is to have Christian centered learning."

"The Kinesiology program is excellent. I feel that the classes offered are preparing me for the career field I have chosen. The faculty in the department are helpful and kind. They care about your well-being and success in the program. The only con I would state about the program is the lack of equipment in the Exercise Physiology Laboratory."

"I absolutely love this school. I have been to several other schools while working on my BS degree and while finishing nursing pre-req's. This is by far my top choice. They have an exceptional support system, teachers are amazing and students are even better. I would not go anywhere else even if I was awarded scholarships!"

"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!"
