Ironically, Hope International University lives up to it's name. For students, like myself, who come from low-income areas Hope is a great place to turn too. They provide scholarships for all their students! The campus is small but as a result of that the community is safe and friendly, a home away from home. Whether you're a Christian or not the relationships created with students, faculty, and professors goes beyond the classroom and prepares you for life, your career, and a source of encouragement for difficulties life throws your way. It challenges you academically and the professors aren't there for the paycheck only, they are passionate scholars who desire their students to grow academically, so they can become scholars as well. Hope successfully lives up to its name.

It's a great school everyone is so nice. Great Christian Based school with amazing and greeting professor and students! It's my first year and I really like it here, the classes are pretty challenging but you'll get through it.
Great atmosphere for growing friendships. Faculty and staff, do a great job with balancing teaching and helping students create a deeper relationship with God. Can be difficult at times to register for classes. But the University makes up with it with easy teacher accessibility and small class sizes.
