Hope International University Reviews

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.

Hope International University has become one of my greatest experience and I am honored of being a student there. Their campus is absolutely marvelous and quite sanitary. What I like about this university is that it's small! I don't have to be lost looking for my classes or riding my scooter to get there. On the contrary, I could use the stairs or the elevator instead, and it's only three floors. And you know what's great about having a small campus? Being able to connect with students and faculty members. It is a great way to become closer and united instead of being distant. Most importantly, understanding that each individual is unique and different no matter what religious belief, ethnicity, or race.
Hope International University is a beautiful school that can help your faith with God. The Professors truly care for all their students in their courses. This is my first semester at HIU and everyone is friendly and care about you as well. The only downside is that the school is expensive, but worth it.
