    Redlands have so far has been a really good school for me as my first year as a college experience. With the orientation week being a five-day-long orientation being filled with constant activities. The orientation was able to give an opportunity to the students to make new friends and the college students who led the group were always energetic and made you feel comfortable enough to talk to them. The orientation not only had fun events, but we also had speakers who were able to give us the motivation to go and take chances and helped us relieve some of our fears of beginning colleges. To add on, I also really enjoy the class sizes which makes you feel actually valued by the professor who will take the time to know you and invest some of their times in you. I feel like the University of Redlands actually is valuing us as students and making sure that we have the foundations so we can really succeed in our goals.

    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 love the atmosphere of the school and the city. The school has offered me many opportunities to explore myself as a person and extracurricular activities to expand my general knowledge. For example, being a first-generation student learning about college life and as a female latinx student beating out stereotypes. However, some things I would change at the UoR is the diversity in administration and the attention given to the cultural diversity center to make it as important as it should be.
