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.

LOVE LOVE LOVE the professors! School is amazing and the people here are great. I feel like everyone at this school really cares about the students and does what is best for them. I believe that they actually care for us and the lead us by examples. God is amazing and they remind us every day.
I take online courses and I love it at Hope. I like having access to course work at any time also giving longer deadlines than sitting in a classroom. Teachers are flexible and although the campus is small, which is nice, there are extentions around Fullerton and Anaheim for counselors, financial aid and academic offices. People complain about the cost but you have to remember it is a private Christian university.
