University of Redlands Reviews

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!

I am currently a transfer Junior at the UoR. The food in the Commons is not the greatest, but it is better than some colleges. The campus is beautiful, but the weather is always really warm (that's to be expected in SoCal, though...). My professors always make themselves available to students and while their classes are tough, the workload is manageable. There's enough time in the week to get involved in campus activities even if you are a science major.

The UoR is in SoCal, 20 minutes from the local train, which will take you into LA for the day for $10. There are also Zipcars on campus to rent and run pretty cheap if you fill the car with people. There is not much to do in Redlands itself, but its surrounding cities offer a variety of activities. I would say having a car is a must. Yes, there is a shuttle that can take you into downtown Redlands and Target, but outside of that, you have to provide your own transportation.
The University of Redlands is a great school! I am currently in the Graduate program and find that it is very interesting. The professors and staff are very helpful. I recommend the University of Redlands and encourage all to visit the campus in Redlands, Ca.
