I've found an incredible group of people at Redlands who really care about what they're learning and how they're planning to change the world with it. The professors and instructors like teaching here and it really shows through their attitude in class. They take in interest in my college career and future success. The campus is in need of several upgrades such as making the academic halls accessible, sidewalk repair, replacing old equipment in dorm buildings' plumbing and ventilation, and general accessibility to off-campus township. We do live in a food desert in a 15-minute walk radius, and this makes it difficult for those who do not have cars to experience the surrounding area with efficiency.

I am proud to call University of Redlands my second home. I have had an unparalleled educational experience with the small class sizes, personable professors, and Johnston Center for Integrative Studies. Johnston allowed me to create my own major and pursue exactly the field of study that I wanted to go into. It allows students to create a personalized course of study for themselves, which I found incredibly unique and rewarding. Beyond academics, the campus is gorgeous, the students are diverse, driven, and some of the friendliest people that I have met.
I'm just starting out as a freshman and so far I'm really pleased with the school. For starters its so pretty and green! There's so many clubs to get involved in (I joined social affairs and I'm loving it). There's a lot of things to apply to become like an orientation leader or a tour guide or a CA, I plan on doing them all. I was unsatisfied with the on-campus job options because I didn't get the one I applied for and they didn't have very many left at that point. Im currently doing note-taking for 2 classes but the pay is low. Other than that very nice people and great school!
