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!

In all honesty my experience at the University of Redlands has been a physical and mental strain. Although all of the hardships, I did gain a lot from my experiences as a college student. I experienced that balancing a sport with academics isn’t easy and also on top of that came the 2 jobs had to help my parents with bills. In the end I do intend to tell an amazing story of my college experience. Despite the hardships, the University of Redlands provides excellent support in making sure I push on and see my dreams of being the first one to graduate come to fruition. So, I’m excited to push on forward knowing my University has my back
Personally, the University of Redlands has helped me with its great amount of resources available to its students. I can honestly say that I made the right decision in coming to this university as the staff truly cares for its students. I enjoy being in a small class setting where my professor and I have a closer relationship. Most importantly, being a first generation student, I have found the support and resources needed for me to succeed. Also, I know that everyone is always willing to help and feels like home.
