University of Redlands is an amazing school! I love the small class sizes because I have personal relationships with all of my professors. All my professors know where I am at with my grades and are willing to help when I need it. Although the university is very expensive, they do their very best to provide students with the best financial aid package available. Most of the financial aid packages actually make the University of Redlands cheaper then most state and UC schools! Everyone on campus is extremely friendly and laid back. It's really easy to make friends and the campus is absolutely beautiful.
I chose Redlands because it was the only school in Southern California that was flexible, attainable, and diverse enough to accommodate my unique career goals. I truly feel that I am learning here and all of my professors (so far) seem to support me. I believe that part of the reason I have received exceptional assistance and encouragement from faculty is due to my enthusiasm for the work, which is sometimes lacking in other students. Generally, though, most people work hard here. I am not too active on the social scene but there are plenty of people here who are, so if you are looking for community then Redlands is a good place to be. I just wish it was less expensive. Depending on your aid/scholarships, certain amenities can be a good value. Others are outright outrageous. Redlands could charge $5,000-$10,000 less per student and still be a great school, in my opinion.
Redlands has given me the opportunity to strive in a smaller campus with teachers who care, students who are friendly, and a beautiful campus to top it off. I spend my time studying out in the quad or the poolside rather than in the library because of the perfect weather. The school feels small but everyday when I walk to class there are so many people that I still do not know and even have never seen before. The party scene is awesome IF you know people who throw the parties, otherwise the frat houses are the best bet. Food is good and helps to illuminate the dreaded "freshman 15" (for me it was the freshman 8) and you have better chances of being involved in the campus activities because of the size which is one of my favorite things about Redlands. I walk or bike into town frequently to Trader Joes, or the cute shops on State Street....but I wouldn't recommend doing so alone. Redlands is known as the oasis in the bigger and badder part of the city ... San Bernadino also the worst county in all of California. With that being said, f you keep your wits about you and carry pepper spray just in case....I KNOW you will be fine just as I was. Campus itself is very open which can be frightening at night in some cases, but our campus police (PSAFE) is circling 24/7 and there are many blue button emergency lights throughout the campus. (fun fact: wherever you are standing on campus you will be able to see at LEAST 1 blue light). On a happier note, dorms are fun and sociable, campus events are awesome, if getting involved is something you want to do you CAN, and if you want a big city feel you only have to drive 45 minutes! Come to Redlands and I promise you will have the best 4 years of your life!
